Surrogacy is a form of assisted reproduction that involves creating an embryo using eggs and sperm from intended parents and/or donors and implanting it into the uterus of a woman who will carry the pregnancy and give birth to the child. We hope that any woman considering becoming a surrogate in New Mexico reviews our complete overview of the surrogacy process below:
Similar to many other states, New Mexico does not have any specific laws that permit or prohibit surrogacy arrangements. As such, intended parents and surrogates are typically able to move forward with a surrogacy contract without issue.
Reproductive Possibilities has a list of requirements that every prospective surrogate must meet before being accepted into the program. Surrogate requirements play an important role in protecting the health and safety of the surrogate and the child she carries.
Our surrogate program requirements:
Every application our team receives is reviewed in full so we can determine if our requirements are well met and that you are a good fit for the program.
Completing a surrogate application is the first step towards becoming a surrogate. The applications are straightforward and ask for information about yourself including your medical history. Details about your past reproductive history will also be covered.
Once our team carefully reviews your application and identifies you as a potential candidate, the next step is to conduct the screening stage, where we get to know you better through a series of one-on-one interviews.
If you are accepted into our surrogacy program, our team will next work on creating your surrogate profile. Every profile includes an overview of the surrogate’s medical history as well as details about your personality, hobbies, views, etc. While these profiles are personal in many respects, information such as your full name, address, and contact information will be completely confidential and not included.
When a prospective match is in progress, our staff will hold separate meetings with you as the surrogate and the potential intended parents to determine whether all parties can potentially agree on the core contract points. Once we feel that we have identified a solid potential match, we’ll arrange a conference where you and the prospective parents will meet to discuss communication goals, support systems, the plan for multiples, etc.
After the group conference, if all parties agree on the above points, then a match will have been made! Our team will continue to provide guidance and support as the surrogacy process begins to move forward.
