Yes! While Minnesota does not have a gestational surrogacy statute, it does not have case law that prohibits it. Some, but not all, courts allow pre-birth orders for married couples, unmarried couples and single individuals whether they are heterosexual or same-sex. At ConceiveAbilities, we have significant experience working in Minnesota to ensure that the intended parents secure parentage rights to their baby and to ensure that you, the surrogate, are properly compensated.
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.

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.

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.

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.
