How Do I Choose A Gestational Surrogate

If you have decided against using a relative or friend to be your surrogate, you will need the help of a surrogacy agency that screens and facilitates finding a suitable gestational surrogate for your specific situation.

Our premier network of surrogacy agencies can facilitate arrangements with gestational carriers and egg donors. Legal contracts will be implicated to mediate and protect intended gay dads-to-be and their gestational carriers.

Some surrogacy agencies offer in-house legal counsel, or an independent attorney specializing in reproductive law and contracts.

The agencies that provide surrogate mother databases have already accepted the women into their programs after careful and meticulous consideration. Each surrogate is given a pre-application, an extensive in-depth application, a phone consultation, an interview, a criminal background check and a medical and psychological evaluation.

The Choice Is Yours — Explore Your Opportunities

Let’s start with the options that are going to enlist the least amount of stress, the greatest amount of emotional and psychological support, and most important, access to the most thoroughly-screened surrogate mothers.

You want to find the best surrogate mother for your individual situation.
