    How much do I get paid?
    My first-time Surrogates get $30,000 plus expenses.
     
    Is it safe?
    It is no different than any pregnancy that you have had in the past.
     
    What are the steps following the matching process and how long will it take?
    Generally, the entire process of the screening, completing the legal contract and actual surrogate cycle can be completed in as little as two months or may take up to six months. The next steps summarized are as follows: Medical Evaluation of the Surrogate with the Fertility physician (2-6 weeks); Psychological Consult for the Parents (1-4 weeks); Medical Evaluation of the Parents (1-4 weeks); Review of Health Insurance for Surrogate, Child & Parents (1-2 weeks); Agency Match Agreement between Parents and Surrogate (1-4 weeks); Establish the Escrow Account (1-2 weeks); Legal Contract Process (2-6 weeks); IVF Cycle (3-4 weeks); 1st Pregnancy test following the embryo transfer (10-15 days); and, Pregnancy (36-38 weeks).
     
    What is Surrogacy?
    The definition of surrogacy is the act of one woman carrying a child that belongs to someone else.
     
    Will I meet the Intended Parents?
    Yes, you will actually be presented with profiles for all available couples or individuals who fit your desired criteria and/or have the same goals/beliefs as you. Because we work with Intended Parents from all over the world, who are single, married or gay, we want to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to become matched with the right person for them. The matching process is based off of finding you an individual or couple who you feel one hundred percent confident in traveling this journey with. This is a huge step in your life and experience that we want you to enjoy and remember for years to come.
     
    Will my eggs be used to create the child I carry?
    No, our surrogacy program is a gestational surrogacy program. In gestational surrogacy, the child you will be carrying for another person will not be your genetic child. The medical process involved (In Vitro Fertilization) entails embryos created from the parents’ (or a donor) genetic material which is then transferred to your uterus. Both you and the parents (also referred to as Intended Parents) will enter into a contract (Gestational Surrogacy Agreement) which specifies that in this arrangement the Intended Parents will be the legal and/or genetic parents of the child.
     
    Will the baby be genetically my child?
    Most Surrogates and Intended Parents choose to use eggs from either the Intended Mom herself or an Egg Donor, so there is no genetic tie to you. It's really up to the Surrogate and what she is comfortable with.
