Become a Surrogate Quiz

A surrogate is someone who is altruistic in nature, and loves to help within her own community. She is raising her own children, and wants to see others experience the joy of being a parent. Does this sound like you? Take our Surrogate Quiz to see if you meet the qualifications to become a gestational surrogate. You’ll see your results immediately and a Case Manager will be in touch within 24 hours (often much less!) to let you know the next steps to starting your surrogacy journey with Family Makers Surrogacy.

What are the benefits to being a surrogate?

The main benefit to being a surrogate is knowing that you are helping to change someone’s life by helping build their family through surrogacy. The experiences and relationships developed during the surrogacy journey will be a part of your life forever, helping to shape those around you. In addition, many women use the compensation they have earned to start college funds for their own children, or provide additional financial stability for their own family.

How much do surrogates earn?

A first time surrogate can expect to earn a base compensation of $35,000 to $40,000. Surrogates are also paid a monthly allowance in addition to compensation for miscellaneous expenses. Compensation is higher in the event of unexpected situations like a multiples pregnancy or a c-section. Experienced surrogates can expect a higher base compensation. Family Makers works with each individual surrogate to tailor a compensation package that you are comfortable with.

What is the surrogacy process?

Your surrogacy journey starts with the completion of your application. After your application is received, a Case Manager will be in touch with a personal note within 24 hours (often much less!) to discuss next steps in our agency screening process.

The agency screening process will involve collecting and reviewing your medical records, background checks and a video consult. Your insurance will also be reviewed to see if it is usable for surrogacy. Your dedicated Case Manager will take the time to get to know you on a personal level as well to be sure you are matched with Intended Parents that are similar in personality and that you have things in common with.

After you are matched with Intended Parents, you will have your psychological consults and medical screening at the IVF clinic. Once you have been cleared medically, you will enter the contract phase of your journey. During this time, both the surrogate and Intended Parents have their own legal representation.

When legal clearance is received, the IVF clinic is notified that you are ready to start cycling and preparing for transfer. Once the pregnancy is confirmed with a fetal heartbeat, you will be released to your OBGYN for the remainder of the pregnancy & delivery.

A typical surrogacy journey is approximately 18 months from the time you complete your application to delivery.
