How do I know if I qualify?
You may be considered to be a gestational carrier if you meet the following criteria:
Between the ages of 21 and 45
Have had at least one previous uncomplicated pregnancy and delivery and are parenting at least one child
A healthy Body Mass Index (BMI)
Have support at home and your partner or husband is onboard too
Do not smoke, use illegal drugs or abuse alcohol
Financial status is healthy and are not on any government aid programs
A US citizen, permanent resident, or green card or visa holder with a minimum of 2 years validity
Reside in a surrogacy friendly state
These criteria are from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine Guidelines. Some surrogacy agencies may have lower age and BMI cut offs.
Here's how it works:
Fill out the brief questionnaire and we'll reach out to you to discuss whether you qualify
If you do, you will get to have a call with an experienced gestational carrier to discuss the potential journey ahead as well as about matching with a surrogacy
We will match you with a vetted and reputable surrogacy agency who has intended parents ready to start their journey
Did you know?
Gestational carriers are not biologically related to the babies they birth. Instead, the embryo is created via in vitro fertilization (IVF) using the intended father's or donor sperm and the intended mother's or donor egg.
You have a say during the matching process and all throughout pregnancy and the birth. Matches between the intended parents and Gestational Carrier must be mutual. A surrogacy agreement is signed to ensure that both parties are on the same page on all important matters.
Once you’re matched with the intended parents, you are paid throughout the entire pregnancy, rather than only at the end. Gestational Carrier compensation ranges from $30,000 to $80,000 and sometimes even higher for more experienced gestational carriers.
Surrogacy is a long journey and can take anywhere from 15 to 19 months. It requires total commitment to the process and so being informed and emotionally ready is important.
