Can I Be a Surrogate at 40?
Yes, if you want to be a surrogate at 40 and meet our other surrogate qualifications, then you are eligible for surrogacy with our agency. Our age requirements range 21-40 and are one of main qualifications to be a surrogate.
Our age requirements are based off of standards set by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and exist to ensure a safe and successful surrogacy journey. Some of our other requirements include:
Have successfully carried a pregnancy to term with no major complications
Are raising a child in your home
Have a BMI of 19-32
Not be on government assistance
If you meet these requirements to be a surrogate at 40, then contact us online now to get started with your journey. We’re ready to help you become a hero in someone else’s story.
Can I Be a Surrogate Over 40?
Unfortunately after the age of 40, you will no longer meet the age requirements set by ASRM and our agency. Risks and complications are more likely after the age of 35. Your safety is our number one priority and these requirements help to ensure a safe, healthy pregnancy.
If you’re 40 and are on the brink of 41, then still reach out to us. Every situation is unique and our goal is to help you become a surrogate as long as you meet our other surrogate requirements.

“The compensation I received from being a surrogate helped alleviate day-to-day stresses. I was able to be more present with my kids and that was to me the biggest thing. If I needed to take off time from work I wasn’t as stressed about it.” – said Jade, one of our surrogate mothers.
