Houston Surrogacy: What You Need To Know

As your local surrogate agency in Houston, we are here to support every step of your surrogacy journey. From helping you do your research on the best Texas surrogacy agency to matching you with a family, ConceiveAbilities is honored to make your dream of being a surrogate come true. We are happy to answer all of your surrogacy questions and we also know how valuable it is to be able to speak with someone who has the personal experience of being a surrogate mother in Houston.

Our three Texas Surrogate Advocates are ready to share their personal experiences as ConceiveAbilities surrogates in Texas and answer any surrogacy questions you have directly.

Leigh-Anne Cooey lives in the Houston suburb of Spring, Texas with her boyfriend, toddler son and Great Dane fur-baby. She has called Texas home for the past three years but has lived in various states throughout the U.S. over the course of her life. She has a busy lifestyle—working at an audiology clinic, picking up shifts at the hospital as a CNA, and attending school part-time. Leigh-Anne wanted to become a surrogate in the Houston area because she had several friends who experienced infertility and needed to use IVF and also a surrogate to build their own family. She says her life is so much more fulfilling and joyful with her son and that she wanted to help another family bring new life into the world and experience that joy. Leigh-Anne is the type of person who has "never met a stranger" and would love to connect with other moms answering any questions they have regarding surrogacy.

Kim Foy and her hubby of 17 years have four children, two biological and two adopted, and reside in Fulshear, Texas. Kim grew up on a farm/ranch in the Lone Star State and still spends many weekends there with her family. Kim’s family has been very supportive of her three surrogacy journeys and she considers surrogacy one of the “best choices” she has ever made. Kim went to college to become a teacher and did so for five years before starting her family. Since then she has been a stay-at-home mom and would not trade a minute of her life for anything. Kim looks forward to the opportunity to visit with others interested in embarking on the one-of-a-kind journey that is surrogacy.

Melanie Wright is a native Texan who lives in Spring, Texas but has family all over the United States. She is happily married, has a six-year-old daughter, a two-year-old son, and works part-time as a Registered Nurse. Melanie feels she has been blessed with healthy pregnancies and wanted to help others wanting to make their families complete! Melanie has been a part of the gestational surrogacy community since becoming an Advocate surrogate in 2018. She is proud of her surrogacy advocacy and is happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Surrogacy in Texas: Frequently Asked Questions

Is Surrogacy in Texas Legal?

Yes. Texas authorizes gestational surrogacy by statute (Tex.Fam.Code § 160-751 through § 160-763) for married couples. Courts have commonly granted pre-birth orders for married couples regardless of their sexual orientation or genetic relationship to the child, provided that the Gestational Carrier Agreement is validated by a court prior to the child's birth. Some judges have allowed single individuals and unmarried couples to obtain pre-birth orders. With ConceiveAbilities’ long track record of working successfully with surrogates in Texas, you can be confident about a successful surrogacy journey.

What Sets ConceiveAbilities Apart from Other Surrogacy Agencies in Texas?

In addition to our staying power of twenty-four years as a surrogacy agency, ConceiveAbilities invests in building a large community of available surrogates because, simply, surrogates sit at the very heart of our program.

How Do We Find Your Perfect Intended Parents in Houston, Texas?

Our Matching Matters process sets us apart from other surrogacy agencies. We understand the significance of the right match, and we are proud of our Matching Matters process that focuses on the connection between a surrogate and the intended parent. Our experience has proven that matching does matter and our 97% initial acceptance rate proves it. The right match lays the foundation for the entire surrogacy process, resulting in a successful and rewarding experience. Often surrogates and intended parents, who start off as strangers to one another, become an extended part of one another’s families. For those who seek this depth of connection, and equally for those who don’t, ConceiveAbilities uses its Matching Matters to understand your goals and make matches that make sense.

How Much Does Being A Surrogate Mother in Texas Pay?

One of the most common questions we receive is, how much do surrogates get paid in Houston? At ConceiveAbilities, our surrogate compensation package is one of the most generous, and well-planned, in the field. As a first-time surrogate living in Texas, you will earn $44,000 and more in base pay, depending on your specific situation, and with payments starting well before your pregnancy.

Who Can Become A Surrogate Mother in Houston, Texas?

Our surrogate requirements make sure your surrogacy journey is as healthy and successful as possible. Review these basic criteria to find out if you qualify as a surrogate candidate. Or, better yet, take our short personal assessment to see if you qualify to be a surrogate in Houston!

Getting to know you Why do we ask?
Have you given birth before? A history of at least one full-term and uncomplicated pregnancy is essential to ensuring your surrogacy journey is healthy and successful.
Where do you live? Compensated surrogacy is legal in most, but not all, states. And, certain locations are highly valued by intended parents, which allows you to earn higher compensation.
Are you a long-term US resident? The surrogacy journey is lengthy and is accomplished only by working with a US-based IVF clinic.
How old are you? At the time you are matched with intended parents, you should be between 21 and 40 years of age.
Are you physically healthy? You must have an uncomplicated medical history, not be over- or under-weight, not currently smoke, and be free of certain chronic conditions.
Are you emotionally healthy? Your surrogacy journey is demanding and requires a stable foundation in your life without undue stress.
Why do you want to be a surrogate? Perhaps the most important requirement is your motivation for pursuing surrogacy. Surrogacy creates an exciting purpose and you can make a profound impact on helping others build their family, and get well-paid for doing so.
