Is Surrogacy Right For You?

Surrogate Requirements

Being a surrogate is a life-changing journey. When you take this path, you will help someone else become the parent they’ve always dreamed about. There are ups and downs along the way, and it’s important that you are 100 percent prepared for this experience before you get started.

That’s why surrogacy requirements exist — to make sure you’re ready for this journey. Surrogacy professionals want to keep both intended parents and gestational surrogates happy and healthy during the surrogacy process. Setting strict surrogacy requirements is how they do so. They’ve figured out which personal characteristics best indicate success and safety for a prospective surrogate, and you’ll need to share these characteristics before you are approved to carry someone else’s baby.
