Click here to fill out our quick application. The first step is to contact our specialists, who can help you decide whether surrogacy is a good fit for you.

Step 2: Complete Our Efficient Screening

Once you’re ready, our professionals gather information and do a medical screening to ensure you’re prepared for the surrogacy process.

Our screening process has been streamlined with your valuable time in mind. With 40% less paperwork than other agencies, we make things easier so you can focus on the fulfilling journey ahead.

Step 3: Get Matched with a Great Family

Finding a great family means that you can get excited about the meaningful difference you will make in their lives as a surrogate. Our specialists will help you find a family that matches your preferences.

Once you find a match, you’ll each work with your own attorney to create a surrogacy contract. This agreement will outline everyone’s roles, expectations and medical process decisions, as well as your surrogate pay.

Step 4: Become Pregnant and Bring New Life into the World

Once you’re matched, the excitement begins. The intended parents will likely have started the IVF process and created embryos using their eggs and sperm, or a donor’s.

You’ll take a series of prescribed fertility medications to prepare for the embryo transfer, where the embryo is transferred to your uterus.  When a pregnancy is confirmed your compensation begins.

You’ll continue prenatal care and attend appointments until the big day arrives.
