Top Surrogate Questions

What is gestational surrogacy?

At ConceiveAbilities, we work with gestational surrogates. Gestational surrogacy involves one person (who is also called a gestational carrier) who will carry a pregnancy and deliver a baby for another person. This process is successful thanks to egg donation and assisted reproduction technologies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Does insurance pay for surrogacy? Who will cover the costs associated with my surrogate pregnancy?

From medication and prenatal care to birth costs and more, all expenses are paid by insurance or the intended parents. While there may be a few out-of-pocket expenses throughout this process, you will be reimbursed in a timely manner.

What are the requirements for surrogacy through your program?

We have an entire list of surrogate mother requirements. In short, it’s important that you are in a healthy and stable position, physically, emotionally, and financially. ConceiveAbilities conducts thorough medical and psychological screening to determine surrogate eligibility. We also encourage you to have the support of your partner and / or family, to undertake a journey that will last 15 to 18 months. You must have had at least one child that you are raising, so that we know you have had an uncomplicated full-term pregnancy and delivery with your own mothering relationship. Finally, because of differences in state laws, we are not able to accept applications from every state.

How long does the surrogacy process take?

You can anticipate that the surrogate mother process may take between 15 to 18 months on average, however, any individual situation could take more time, or less time.

What should I expect in my relationship with the intended parents?

This is where our years of experience and Matching Matters® methodology is most meaningful in cultivating the right relationship between all parties. We work to establish mutual expectations for the kind of relationship the surrogate and intended parents each envision, since we know that those expectations will vary from one match to the next. Some relationships can be business-like and other relationships involve frequent communication among the participants. The kind of relationship you are interested in will be explored before and during a potential match with intended parents.

Do you get paid for being a surrogate?

Yes, we provide monetary compensation to our qualified surrogates.

Is surrogacy safe?

Yes, while there are risks involved in surrogacy, it can be a safe process. We are dedicated to providing our surrogates with ample protection and support throughout their journeys.

After the baby is born, what am I responsible for?

You are responsible for taking care of yourself! The intended parents, by law, will have parental rights and responsibility to their child or children.
