  • Resident of the United States
  • Between the ages of 21-42
  • Healthy overall
  • Height-weight proportionate with BMI of 33 or less

Do you know what the surrogacy process entails?

There are 6 phases of the surrogacy process: Intake, Matching, Medical Screening, Legal Process, Embryo Transfer, then of course, Pregnancy & Birth.

The surrogacy journey begins with a matching process. Once you are matched with Intended Parents who meet all your specifications, the medical screening process will begin. Then onto legal, where you’ll sort out your contract and set expectations for your journey. Next comes the embryo transfer, which is of course followed by the pregnancy, birth, and beyond!

What are you looking for in an intended parent(s)?

As a Surrogate with Family Source Consultants, what you are looking for in your Intended Parents is one of the most important details we take into account.

Some criteria that you’ll want to consider at the start of the matching process are:

  • Would you like to match with a couple who is located in the United States or abroad?
  • Are you interested in working with a same-sex couple?
  • What is your stance on selective reduction/termination?
  • Are you comfortable in transferring multiple (two) embryos?
