Surrogate Requirements

Becoming a surrogate mother can be a life-changing experience for you and the individuals and couples who would like to have a family.

Before you apply, please consider the following surrogacy requirements, which were created to comply with ASRM guidelines and the IVF doctors and attorneys we work with. 

Our surrogates are required to:

  • Be female, age 21-39, with healthy menstrual cycles. We may consider up to age 42 for repeat surrogates.
  • Be a parent who has had at least one successful, live birth with no complications.
  • Be a non-smoker.
  • Be a non-drug user.
  • Have a BMI below 30 (up to 32 may be considered). You can calculate your BMI HERE.
  • Not be currently receiving government financial assistance.
  • Be a US citizen or have a valid US Permanent Residency status.
  • Have no felonies (applies to spouse, as well).
  • Not be taking medications for mental illness (anxiety, depression, self-harm, eating disorders, etc.).
  • Have no history of bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, personality disorders, etc.
  • Not be using an IUD or birth control shots.

Surrogacy Process

To help you decide if becoming a surrogate is right for you, please review the typical process that our surrogates experience.


To begin the process, submit your completed application to see if you qualify. If your application is approved, our team will contact you to schedule a phone interview. We will ask you to complete your profile prior to the interview.


During the 30-60 minute interview, we will review your profile, explain the surrogacy process, and answer your questions.


Upon approval of your application, your profile will be added to our secure database for intended parents to view. Your profile will also be sent to intended parents. When parents are interested in working with you, you will be contacted for a meeting with a member of our team and the parents. Once you have met, you will have time to decide if you would like to be “matched” and become a surrogate for those parents.


When you and the parents have agreed to be a match, you will complete a psychological evaluation and medical screening. During the medical examination, you will submit to a physical exam, blood work, and other essential tests to verify you are healthy enough to become a surrogate.


The legal process will begin once you have completed your medical screening. The intended parents will review the contract with their attorney, then you will review the contract with your attorney. This step typically takes about 2-3 weeks and is paid for by the future parents.

Medications & Monitoring

It will be necessary for you to begin taking medications approximately 3 weeks prior to the embryo transfer. The IVF clinic will provide you with a calendar, the medications, and detailed instructions. Because each IVF doctor/clinic has their own specific protocol for success, it is essential that you follow their instructions so as not to jeopardize the transfer and/or surrogacy. Additional visits to the clinic may be necessary for monitoring, blood tests, or lining checks to ensure you are responding well to the medications.

Embryo Transfer

Once your body is ready to receive the embryos, you and a companion will go to the IVF clinic for the embryo transfer. If you are not local to the IVF clinic, we will arrange your travel and hotel accommodations for you and your companion. The intended parents may wish to attend the embryo transfer, as well. The process of transferring embryos is rather quick and painless and usually includes 1-5 days of bed rest immediately following the procedure.

Post Transfer & Pregnancy

The first pregnancy test occurs approximately 10-14 days after your transfer. Once pregnancy is confirmed, your first ultrasound will be about 4-5 weeks post embryo transfer to confirm a heartbeat. You will continue to be monitored until you are released to your local OB/GYN for the remainder of the pregnancy.


The details of your birth plan will be finalized prior to the contracts being completed to ensure it meets everyone’s needs. Delivery will take place at the hospital near you and the baby will be discharged from the hospital with the parents. We will continue to support you through postpartum as you complete your surrogacy journey.
