Surrogacy in Oklahoma

Oklahoma is one of the few states in the U.S. that has specific laws about gestational surrogacy. As of 2019, the Oklahoma Gestational Agreement Act made gestational surrogacy arrangements legal and contracts enforceable.

What is Surrogacy?

Surrogacy is a fertility care technique that is often used when a couple or individual is unable to sustain a pregnancy and/or give birth. This includes those who have some kind of fertility issue, same-sex male couples, and single men. In a gestational surrogacy arrangement, an embryo is created using sperm from the male intended father or a sperm donor and the egg(s) from the female intended parent or an egg donor. Once created, the embryo is transferred into the surrogate’s womb. The surrogate does not have a genetic relationship to the baby and only acts as the person who carries and gives birth to the child. Surrogates are also sometimes referred to as gestational carriers.

How does surrogacy work in Oklahoma?

Since 2019, Oklahoma features legislation that makes it legal for intended parents and surrogates to pursue surrogacy agreements and create legal surrogacy contracts. Gestational surrogacy falls within these laws, so paid surrogate arrangements are protected.

Surrogate Requirements in Oklahoma

Your health and safety as a surrogate, along with that of the baby you’ll carry, are our top priorities. That is why Reproductive Possibilities has certain qualifications that surrogates must meet before being accepted into our program. If you’re thinking about becoming a surrogate in Idaho (or any other state), you must fulfill the following qualifications. As a prospective surrogate you must:

  • Have a BMI between 18 and 33
  • Be between 21 and 44 years of age; an exception to this may be made for an experienced surrogate mother
  • Be a non-smoker
  • Have given birth before with no medical complications and less than three total c-sections

Every application that is submitted to our program is reviewed carefully.

Surrogate Pay in Oklahoma

Gestational surrogacy is a paid surrogacy arrangement where the surrogate mother receives compensation for her time, effort, and commitment. In Oklahoma, surrogates can earn a total compensation package that ranges from $55,000 – $60,000, which includes a base fee of $35,000 for a single fetus plus benefits, as well as any expenses related to pregnancy and delivery.

If the surrogate agrees to carry multiple fetuses, it can earn her an additional $5,000 in base pay. It’s also worth noting that women who have worked as gestational carriers in the past will typically receive a higher total compensation package.

How Oklahoma Surrogates and Parents Are Matched

The Reproductive Possibilities team has a long history of connecting surrogates with intended parents across the country, including in the great state of Oklahoma. After you’ve submitted your surrogate application, run through the screening process, and have been accepted into the program, it’s time to get matched!

The first part of the matching process involves separate conferences between the Reproductive Possibilities team with surrogates and intended parents. During these individual conferences, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss any preferences you may have, such as the type of family you would like to help or if you want to work with intended parents who live close by. Intended parents are asked similar questions to help them narrow down their preferences as well. If our team feels that a solid prospective match is forming, we’ll schedule a group conference with all parties.

During this group conference, everyone will discuss the most basic tenets of the surrogacy arrangement, such as

  • Will you, as the surrogate, be willing to carry multiples?
  • What are your feelings and opinions about pregnancy reduction or termination?
  • What is your preferred method of communication?
  • What is your preferred frequency of communication?
  • Do you have a stable network of family and/or friends available to support you during your journey?

If intended parents and surrogates can reach common ground on all of these topics and agree to pursue surrogacy together, then a match has been made.
