Requirements for Surrogacy
There are many requirements and assessments surrogates must get through to officially become a surrogate. If you’re looking to be a surrogate in your 20s, you will likely have the opportunity to be a surrogate on more than one occasion if you choose to pursue this path further. Some basic requirements include:
At least one successful pregnancy
No more than five vaginal births or three caesarean births
Currently raising a child
No major complications from previous pregnancies
No felony convictions
At Least 21 Years Old
While you can’t be a surrogate at 20, you can start your surrogacy journey at age 21. Women’s bodies and fertility are growing and changing into their 20s, which is one of the reasons experts have set the minimum age requirements for surrogates to 21.
Surrogacy is paid and will not cause financial strain on you, but we do want you to be financially stable outside of this payment. While your 20s are often full of fun and adventure, the ability to financially support yourself is important to the process. We don’t want you to feel stressed about your income during this time.
You’re Raising Your Child
One of the important requirements for surrogates is that they have had a successful pregnancy and are currently raising their own child. This helps to ensure you are physically able to carry a child to term. Raising your own child can also help to prevent any emotional challenges that might otherwise come from carrying someone else’s child.
If you are looking to become a surrogate in your 20s, there are some things you can do to start preparing.
Weigh the Challenges
Becoming a surrogate in your 20s may have challenges that it wouldn’t otherwise bring around if you were older. A lot of people in their 20s are on their own for the first time, but when you choose to go through surrogacy, you may have to put certain things on hold. However, if you feel this is right for you and your family, this can be a life-changing opportunity.
Talk to Your Family
Talk with your family members and support system that will be there for you throughout the surrogacy process. Surrogacy has many physical and emotional challenges, and having a solid support system can make all the difference. Talking to your spouse or other family members about the process can help alleviate any concerns or misgivings anyone might have about being a surrogate in your 20s.
Get Ready to Work with a Family
One of the best parts of surrogacy is working with the parents whose lives you will ultimately change. Begin thinking of the type of parents you’d like to work with and what you would bring to the table. Surrogacy builds lifelong relationships and can create a positively profound impact on everyone’s lives.
