Before getting started, we ask that potential surrogates review the requirements listed below. For a complete list of surrogate requirements, please visit our surrogate mother requirements page.
Surrogacy is generally permitted and practiced throughout the state of Colorado, as there are currently no laws prohibiting surrogacy arrangements. Colorado does allow intended parents to obtain a pre birth order (PBO), which provides legal parentage for a child born to a gestational carrier. The PBO establishes many important rights, and gives new parents the ability to take their child directly home from the hospital.
At ConceiveAbilities, we believe that all surrogate mothers should receive proper financial pay for their surrogacy journey. As a surrogate mother, your reimbursed payment will include all costs associated with your legal representation, lost wages (if applicable), medications, medical co-pays, maternity clothing, and travel (if applicable). For further details, we invite you to read more about surrogate compensation.
Whether you are an intended parent or a surrogate applicant, the process for getting started is easy, secure & confidential. Go ahead and take the first step with ConceiveAbilities.
Finding a path to parenthood by working with a gestational carrier continues to grow in its appeal. In 2019, an estimated 7,000 births took place by surrogate in the United States, as the market is steadily growing at 15% per year based on data from the Centers for Disease Control. And, in 2017, we know that 4.2% of all In Vitro Fertilization transfers occurred with a gestational carrier, which grew from just over 1% ten years prior.
The decision to become a surrogate means entering into a unique partnership with the intended parents. Think about it: you’re taking on an incredibly powerful responsibility, and it’s often for someone you’ve never met. One of the most important decisions you’ll make during your surrogacy journey is the people you’ll enter into this partnership with. What should you consider when being matched with intended parents? From working with a surrogacy agency to communication and beyond, we’ll explore how to make the very most of your match.
