It is very important that a surrogate live a healthy lifestyle (smoke free environment, no drinking alcohol or caffeine and no drugs). Eating healthy, having well balanced meals and a wide variety of food is essential to having a healthy pregnancy. Being in an emotionally well balanced life is needed as well. It is necessary for a surrogate to be happy with her own life and willing to give. You must have had a past healthy full term pregnancy/pregnancies yourself. A surrogate must be willing to take the responsibility of caring for the unborn child for the Intended Parents, this includes attending medical appointments and being reliable with communication.
We start by asking some basic questions to determine your qualifications. These include information about past pregnancies and your motivation to be a surrogate. We ask you to complete a questionnaire. Later, we will conduct a criminal background check, a medical exam, and a psychological exam.
