What is surrogacy?

Kelsey, Experienced Surrogate

There are two types of surrogacy, but we’ll focus on the type of surrogacy that we support, which is gestational surrogacy.

A gestational surrogate is an exceptional mom who volunteers to carry a baby for hopeful parents who are unable to carry a pregnancy on their own, for all sorts of reasons. These would-be parents need a hero, and that hero is you

Your eggs are not used in gestational surrogacy, and you’re not related to the baby in any way. You’re just keeping their bun in your miracle-working oven. ❤️

And while you hear a lot about how much of a hero surrogates are to intended parents, what’s not often talked about is how much of a hero surrogates are to their own families. 

Surrogates are generously compensated for carrying someone else’s baby, and the surrogates we know and love have made tremendous impacts in their own families’ lives, too.  

We think that’s something to be just as proud of!

Kristina, Experienced Surrogate

To become a surrogate, you need to have had at least one uncomplicated pregnancy and birth, be between the ages of 21-45, and be in good physical and mental health. 

These surrogacy requirements have been determined for good reason. We want to make sure surrogacy is as safe as possible, as well as ensure the most successful outcomes possible— for you, the intended parents, and the baby!
