Your profile will include a letter to any prospective surrogate, as well as pictures and information about your family and home. Based on your preferences and goals, your surrogacy specialist will assist in identifying potential surrogate candidates and presenting them with your profile.

Step 3: Medical and Legal Clearance

Once you have found the perfect surrogate for your journey, she will complete a medical evaluation at your clinic. This will ensure she is physically ready to begin a surrogate pregnancy. Once she has approval from your doctor, you will each work with an attorney to create your surrogacy agreement, and then you’ll be on to the next exciting step.

Step 4: IVF and Embryo Transfer 

After the legal contracts are signed, the medical process can begin. This is one of the most significant and exciting steps in the surrogacy process. After a successful transfer, your baby will be on the way!

This process includes putting the surrogate on a regimen of hormones to prepare her body for the embryo transfer.  Throughout this process, our team will provide support, education and guidance to ensure that everything goes smoothly.
