Meet & Greet

The first step in our process is to meet with us and share your expectations for the journey. This is a time to get to know one another and make sure our process will be in alignment with your goals! We will take note of your dealbreaker requirements and matching preferences to help us search for your ideal match.

Profile Creation

AS INTENDED PARENTS, CREATING A THOUGHTFUL PROFILE IS AN IMPORTANT STEP IN THE SURROGACY PROCESS.

Your profile serves as an introduction to potential surrogates, and it’s an opportunity to showcase who you are and what fantastic parents you will be. A well-crafted profile can increase the likelihood of finding a well-suited surrogate match, quickly.

We, as your surrogacy agency, will work with you to create a profile that accurately represents you and your preferences. We will help you define your matching preferences, communication style, and expectations for the pregnancy, delivery, and beyond. We will also guide you in highlighting your personalities, interests, and values, so potential surrogates can get a glimpse into your lives and what you would be like to work with.

To increase your matching options, we may suggest creating a short video to share with potential surrogates that truly highlights who you are, helping to build a stronger connection and increase the likelihood of finding a great match. Don’t worry, our team will help you put together a fun video that summarizes how amazing you are!

Once your profile is complete, we will begin sharing with qualified, pre-screened surrogate candidates who meet your match criteria!

Matching Philosophy

WE BELIEVE THAT FINDING THE RIGHT MATCH IS ESSENTIAL FOR A SUCCESSFUL SURROGACY JOURNEY AND ARE COMMITTED TO HELPING YOU FIND JUST THAT.

We spend a significant amount of time getting to know each gestational carrier, including their preferences for matching and communication style.

We start by thoroughly screening potential gestational carriers to ensure they meet our requirements and have the mental, physical, and emotional capacity to undergo a surrogacy journey.

Using our knowledge of your clinic’s requirements and the gestational carrier’s matching preferences, we will suggest matches that are most aligned with your goals and expectations for the surrogacy journey.

Once we find a potential match, we will share both the intended parent’s and gestational carrier’s profiles simultaneously and ask that you let us know within 24 hours if you’re interested in moving forward with a match call.

If both parties want to meet, based on their profiles, we will send the medical records to the IVF doctor and schedule a match meeting. At the match meeting, you will have an opportunity to talk and get to know each other better. If the meeting goes well and you both agree to move forward, we will arrange for inperson medical screening with your RE.

The Match Call

THE MATCH CALL IS A CRUCIAL AND EXCITING MILESTONE IN THE SURROGACY PROCESS.

Our agency will be present on this Zoom call to ensure that everyone feels at ease and the conversation flows smoothly.

We have prepared a list of matching questions to help facilitate the best match possible for all parties involved. You will receive these questions beforehand, allowing you to raise any additional queries you wish us to ask during the Zoom call.

If both parties want to meet, based on their profiles, we will send the medical records to the IVF doctor and schedule a match meeting.

At the match meeting, you will have an opportunity to talk and get to know each other better.

In the event that both the Surrogate and Intended Parents express their desire to proceed, we will assist in coordinating the medical screening process with your IVF clinic and the surrogate.

Your Journey Coordinator will arrange the surrogate’s flights and hotel accommodations and ensure that she is fully aware of her responsibilities during the upcoming stages of the process!

Peace of Mind for the Journey

Ashley, Experienced Surrogate

AS INTENDED PARENTS ENTERING INTO THIS ARRANGEMENT, IT’S AS IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO FEEL PREPARED AS IT IS FOR YOUR SURROGATE.

A consultation with a mental health professional is an important step for intended parents who are considering a surrogacy journey. Here are a few reasons why:

1. Emotional preparedness: A mental health professional can help intended parents prepare emotionally for the surrogacy journey. Surrogacy involves a range of emotions, from excitement and hope to anxiety and uncertainty. A mental health professional can help intended parents understand these emotions, develop coping strategies, and prepare for the challenges that may arise.

2. Relationship building: A mental health professional can help intended parents navigate the relationship-building process with their gestational carrier. The intended parents and the gestational carrier will need to work together closely throughout the surrogacy journey, and it’s important that they establish a strong and positive relationship from the outset. A mental health professional can provide guidance on how to communicate effectively, build trust, and develop a healthy and supportive relationship.

3. Legal and ethical considerations: A mental health professional can provide valuable guidance to intended parents regarding the legal and ethical considerations of surrogacy. This intricate process involves a range of important factors that must be thoughtfully evaluated. With the help of a mental health professional, intended parents can gain a clear understanding of their rights and responsibilities, navigate the legal system, and make informed and ethical decisions throughout their surrogacy journey.

Overall, a consultation with a mental health professional is an important step for intended parents who are considering a surrogacy journey. It can help them prepare emotionally, build a positive relationship with their gestational carrier, and
navigate the legal and ethical considerations involved in surrogacy.

We will arrange 3 additional consultations throughout your journey to provide a safe place for guidance and support at important milestones during your journey: at legal clearance, at 18-20 weeks of pregnancy, and finally at 34-36 weeks of pregnancy in preparation for birth.

We believe so strongly in the value of this support system for our intended parents that we include this additional support as part of our agency fee.

Additionally, for the peace of mind of you and your surrogate, we conduct a criminal background check for all parties, including intended parents, surrogate, her partner, and any other adults living in the home with her.

In Person Medical Screening

Kelsey, Experienced Surrogate

ONCE YOUR MATCH IS OFFICIAL, WE WILL WORK WITH YOUR IVF CLINIC AND SURROGATE TO SCHEDULE HER IN PERSON MEDICAL SCREENING

The purpose of this detailed medical testing is to ensure that the surrogate’s body is capable of carrying a healthy pregnancy to term. Your reproductive endocrinologist will oversee this process and may perform several tests to evaluate the surrogate’s reproductive health.

Some of the tests that a surrogate may undergo include:

1. Hormonal Evaluation: This may involve blood tests to evaluate the surrogate’s hormone levels, including estrogen, progesterone, and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH).

2. Infectious Disease Testing: Surrogates will be tested for infectious diseases, including HIV, hepatitis B and C, and syphilis. These tests are important to ensure the health of the surrogate and any potential pregnancy.

3. Uterine Evaluation: A uterine evaluation is typically performed to assess the shape, size, and condition of the uterus. This may involve an ultrasound or other imaging tests to evaluate the uterine lining and look for any abnormalities that could affect implantation or pregnancy.

4. Other Medical Tests: The reproductive endocrinologist may also perform other medical tests as needed based on the surrogate’s medical history and individual circumstances.

Overall, the purpose of these tests is to ensure that the surrogate is healthy and able to carry a pregnancy to term, and to identify any potential issues that could affect the success of the surrogacy process. By undergoing detailed medical testing, intended parents can have greater confidence in their surrogate’s ability to carry a healthy pregnancy.

If possible, the in person medical screening is a great opportunity for intended parents to meet the surrogate in person (in many cases for the first time!)

While there is no set time for when intended parents should start building a relationship with their surrogate, it is recommended to start early on in the surrogacy process to establish a good foundation for communication, trust, and support throughout the journey.

Surrogate Friendly Insurance

La'Phadra, 1st surrogacy journey

WHEN PREPARING FOR A SURROGATE PREGNANCY, IT’S ESSENTIAL FOR INTENDED PARENTS TO ENSURE THE SURROGATE HAS PROPER INSURANCE COVERAGE.

We will refer you to an ART insurance professional to help you navigate the process and offer recommendations. They will carefully review the surrogate’s current insurance policy to see if it covers surrogacy-related expenses and determine if additional coverage is needed. If so, they will help you to compare options, costs, and exclusions.

You will also be required to purchase life and loss of organ insurance and will have the option to purchase additional coverage in case of bedrest or other complications.

Once you’ve chosen a provider, the surrogate will submit an application for a policy which covers all surrogacy-related expenses, including prenatal care, delivery, and potential complications.

As the intended parents, you will be responsible for the insurance premiums, co-payments and deductibles throughout the pregnancy. The total estimated costs will be added to the trust account prior to your surrogate starting IVF medications.

By working with experienced ART insurance professionals, you can confidently navigate the surrogate insurance process and prepare for the financial responsibilities associated with a surrogate pregnancy.

Drafting Legal Contracts

THE LEGAL CONTRACT PHASE OF YOUR SURROGACY JOURNEY MAY FEEL DAUNTING, BUT IT’S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT IT’S A NECESSARY STEP IN PROTECTING BOTH YOU AND YOUR SURROGATE.

You and your surrogate will each need to work with a separate attorney who specializes in surrogacy law. They will help guide you through the process and ensure that all parties’ rights and responsibilities are clearly outlined and agreed upon.

Your attorney will work with you to draft the contract before sending it to the surrogate to review with her attorney. Take the time to review the draft thoroughly, and don’t be afraid to ask questions or request revisions if necessary.

It’s important to note that this is the time to address any questions or concerns you may have with your attorney, and make sure you fully understand the terms outlined in the contract. While you may request revisions to the contract, please understand that the benefit package provided and signed by both parties will not be subject to negotiation or change in any way at this stage.

Tensions can arise in this stage as you consider expectations, boundaries, and restrictions you wish to include in the contract. It’s important for all parties to remember that each of individual involved in this special arrangement is a human being with their own thoughts, feelings, fears, and needs, so be sure to treat one another with respect and kindness.

Casey, 2x Experienced Surrogate
Evie, Experienced Surrogate

Finally, remember that while the legal contract is important, it’s only one aspect of your surrogacy journey.

Be sure to also focus on building a strong relationship with your surrogate based on mutual trust and respect. This can go a long way in creating a positive and meaningful experience for everyone involved. Since the benefit package will be agreed upon prior to legal, it’s best to avoid discussing finances with your surrogate and lean on us as your agency to navigate any financial aspects of the journey.

Although all parties strive to maintain open communication, we understand that difficult conversations may arise during the surrogacy journey.

As your agency, we are here to act as a liaison that both parties can approach to help facilitate communication and maintain a happy and healthy relationship.

Whether it’s discussions around finances or any other serious circumstances, we encourage you to lean on us for support. Ultimately, addressing any concerns promptly and transparently will help ensure a smooth and successful surrogacy journey for all involved.

Escrow/Trust Account Funding

FULLY FUNDING A TRUST ACCOUNT WITH A THIRD PARTY ESCROW COMPANY ENSURES THAT THE SURROGATE RECEIVES HER FULL COMPENSATION AND THAT ALL CONTRACTUAL EXPENSES AND INCIDENTALS ARE PROPERLY COVERED.

This process helps build trust between the intended parents and the surrogate, and provides financial security for both parties.

Once legal contracts are finalized, the intended parents need to deposit the surrogate’s complete compensation, as mentioned in the contract, into the trust account. An additional $25,000 for any contractual expenses and incidentals that may arise during the surrogacy journey.

By doing this, the intended parents can be sure that the surrogate’s financial needs will be met, while the surrogate can focus on her role in helping the parents build their family.

The third party escrow company acts as a neutral party, managing the funds and ensuring they are disbursed according to the terms of the contract. This way, everyone involved in the process can have peace of mind knowing that the financial aspects are being handled responsibly and transparently.

As your agency, we will manage reimbursement requests for your surrogate and keep you in the loop at all times so that you’ll never need to discuss finances with your surrogate and focus on building your relationship.

IVF and Embryo Transfer

Kristina, Experienced Surrogate

WE UNDERSTAND THAT THE IVF AND EMBRYO TRANSFER PROCESS CAN BE A SOURCE OF ANXIETY AND CONCERN FOR INTENDED PARENTS.

We want to assure you that we provide comprehensive support and guidance to our surrogates to ensure that they are able to follow the medication protocol and manage their health and wellbeing throughout the journey.

We carefully screen and select surrogates who have a strong commitment to following the medication protocol and have demonstrated their ability to manage their own health. We provide ongoing education and emotional support to surrogates, as well as access to medical professionals who can answer any questions or concerns that may arise.

During the IVF process, we work closely with the surrogate and her medical team to ensure that she understands the medication protocol, including when and how to take the medications, and what side effects to expect.

We can also help coordinate logistics such as travel and lodging arrangements for embryo transfer.

Throughout the entire process, we are committed to ensuring that the surrogate feels supported and informed, and is able to manage any fears or anxieties that may arise. We believe that by providing ongoing guidance and support, we can help ease your concerns about the surrogate’s ability to follow the medication protocol and ensure a successful surrogacy journey for all involved.

Pregnancy & Prenatal Care

WE WILL BE HERE TO SUPPORT YOU AND YOUR SURROGATE THROUGHOUT THE PREGNANCY AND PRENATAL CARE JOURNEY.

We’ll actively coordinate appointments and facilitate communication between all parties, keeping you informed and involved at every stage.

To ensure the best care, we’ve built a strong network of surrogate-friendly providers. We’ll help you find the right healthcare professionals experienced in working with surrogates, ensuring a positive experience for everyone.

Clear communication is essential in building a strong relationship between intended parents and the surrogate. We’ll act as a liaison, addressing concerns or questions and facilitating conversations to keep everyone on the same page.

Besides medical support, we provide emotional support throughout the pregnancy. Our team is committed to making this journey as smooth and enjoyable as possible for both you and your surrogate, and we’re excited to be a part of your family-building experience.

Ongoing Mental Health Support

Morgan, Experienced Surrogate

AS INTENDED PARENTS, YOU WANT TO ENSURE THAT YOUR SURROGATE HAS THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE THROUGHOUT THE SURROGACY JOURNEY, BOTH PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY.

One way we can help ensure a stress-free pregnancy for your surrogate is by providing ongoing mental health support throughout the process. We work with experienced psychologists who are specially trained to provide support and guidance to surrogates.

As part of our surrogacy program, the same psychologist who conducts your surrogate’s psychological evaluation will check in with her on a monthly basis until three months postpartum. This provides a valuable opportunity for the surrogate to discuss any stressors or concerns that may arise during the pregnancy, and to receive guidance and support from a trained mental health professional.

This can help to reduce conflict, address stressors before they arise, and help her feel well-supported. This can have a positive impact on the pregnancy itself, as stress and anxiety can have negative effects on both the surrogate and the developing fetus.

By working with a qualified psychologist, your surrogate will have a confidential space to discuss her feelings and concerns, without burdening or worrying you, the intended parents. This can help to strengthen the relationship between you and your surrogate, as well as ensure that she is able to navigate the surrogacy process with confidence and ease.

Delivery & Postpartum

 AS YOUR BABY’S DUE DATE APPROACHES, WE WILL KEEP YOU INFORMED ABOUT IMPORTANT MILESTONES AND APPOINTMENTS, GUIDING YOU THROUGH PAPERWORK AND TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS.

Our goal is to make sure you feel confident and prepared for your baby’s arrival.

We will work closely with the hospital to understand their specific rules and regulations surrounding who can be present in the delivery room.

We will confirm that all parties, including the birth clerk, have the necessary legal paperwork and ensure that any additional arrangements, such as cord banking, are in place with both the hospital and the surrogate. As the delivery date approaches, we will work with both the surrogate and the intended parents to understand their preferences and expectations for the delivery and the atmosphere of the special day.

We will help to arrange travel and lodging as needed.

Once your baby is born, we will focus on supporting your surrogate during her postpartum recovery. If both you and your surrogate decide that she will pump breastmilk for your baby, we will assist her in coordinating logistics for the shipment
of breastmilk, and provide information on necessary supplies.

By maintaining regular communication with her and her medical team, we ensure she is recovering well and receiving the appropriate care.

Surrogacy stories from

Real-Life Superheroes

Are we the real deal?

Check out more stories on Insta!

It’s simple… we’re different than any other agency. 

And it’s because of that difference, that we have some of the highest surrogate-to-intended parent ratios in the industry.

So, to start… your match times are significantly shorter working with us. 

Maybe matching in 90-days instead of sitting on a waitlist for a year or more might be enough of a reason to choose us, but there’s more than that.

We’ve created a system where our surrogate candidates are more informed, more supported and more excited about their journey. And that creates a smoother journey overall for everyone. 

It’s important to know that, while the primary focus in a surrogacy journey is typically you and your goal to complete your family, it’s important to know that this is your surrogate’s journey as well. Knowing that, we can help your journey become the best journey it can possibly be, again, for everyone.

Surrogacy is generally categorized into two types: gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy. In gestational surrogacy, embryos are created by the intended parents via in vitro fertilization and then implanted in a surrogate, who is often referred to as a gestational carrier. This surrogate carries the child or children to term, yet shares no genetic ties with them. This form of surrogacy constitutes the majority of surrogacy agreements today.

On the other hand, traditional surrogacy involves the surrogate becoming pregnant through artificial insemination, thus establishing a genetic link with the child or children she carries for the intended parents. Please note, at Surrogacy Is, we exclusively offer gestational surrogacy services.

Absolutely! At Surrogacy Is, we fully support and work with all kinds of aspiring parents. Whether you are a single individual or a couple, irrespective of sexual orientation, we are here to assist you in your surrogacy journey. Being single does not exclude you from our services; we believe everyone who wishes to become a parent should have the opportunity to do so.
The overall duration of the surrogacy process can vary and largely depends on a range of factors. As a general guideline, intended parents should anticipate about a year and a half from when they engage with our agency until they welcome their child. However, this timeline can be expedited or extended depending on the legal complexities involved and the specifics of the in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. For instance, if you already have embryos prepared, the process is likely to be quicker.
Surrogacy Is is open to everyone. We provide support to all individuals and couples, no matter what your background or family setup is. If you’re looking to start your journey to parenthood, we’re here to assist.
Oh my gosh, yes! We’ve had the pleasure of assisting many LGBTQIA+ individuals and couples on their journey to becoming parents. We collaborate with legal experts who really know their stuff when it comes to surrogacy law for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Does Surrogacy Is work with heterosexual couples? Absolutely! We’re here for everyone. That includes individuals and couples of all types, including, of course, heterosexual couples. At Surrogacy Is, we believe everyone who wants to start a family should get the help they need.
Choosing to become a parent through surrogacy can be a bit of a rollercoaster, with lots of moving parts like finding the right surrogate, dealing with legal stuff, figuring out costs, building relationships, and ironing out any kinks that pop up. The right agency, like Surrogacy Is, can be your guide, making the whole ride smoother and less stressful.
Every surrogate has to pass our screening process before we match them with any aspiring parents. Additionally, our surrogates go through 2 screening process, initially with our surrogate advocates, then if they choose our agency, another full screening process. Once they get introduced to our intake team, we have a chat about their health and previous pregnancies. Then, we take a look at their medical records to make sure their past pregnancies went smoothly. Lastly, we do a background check.
Before we match you with a surrogate, we’ll talk about what you want in terms of how many embryos to transfer and your thoughts on selective reduction. That way, we make sure your surrogate is on the same page with you about these things, even in cases where the pregnancy results in twins.
Absolutely! At Surrogacy Is, we’re all about being open, honest, and staying connected. We think it’s great to build strong relationships that can last. After all, we’re all on the same team in this journey! That being said, the type of relationship you want will be something you both decide, likely prior to your match. Remember, you and your surrogate are designing your journeys to meet what both of you need. It’s up to you both to determine what you’d both like to get out of this journey, other than the obvious bundle of joy at the end!
Starting your journey with surrogacy starts off with filling our our Intended Parent form at https://surrogacy.is/intended-parent-quiz. Once that’s complete, a Intended Parent coordinator will connect for a Q&A call, and general consult. It’s a chance for you to tell us your story and why you’re looking at surrogacy to expand your family. We’ll go over how everything works here at Surrogacy Is, what we offer, and answer any questions you might have.
