Finding and Selecting our Surrogate
Allowing an experienced and reputable agency assist you in choosing a gestational surrogate, provides you with assurance that the candidates you are considering have been found suitable for surrogacy in accordance with the industry’s guidelines and standards. SAI has pre-screened all accepted surrogate candidates to ensure they meet the state requirements and the qualifications for our program. Surrogate candidates accepted by SAI must be healthy, emotionally and financially stable, reliable, committed to the process and medically suitable.
The agency director assisting you through the matching process will provide you with detailed profiles of currently available surrogates. After you have identified the surrogates in our program that are of interest to you, the agency director will compare the profiles to your specific preferences and provide you with additional recommendations and guidance to ensure you have the largest selection of possible surrogate candidates from which to choose. Many intended parents have specific preferences when looking at surrogate profiles and at times surrogates may also have certain preferences when considering the type of intended parents, they are willing to help.
SAI takes great pride in the matching process and holds both parties’ wishes in high regard. All intended parents interested in speaking with or meeting with one of our surrogate candidates, must complete our free intended parent consultation form and submit their intended parent questionnaire along with photos to the agency director, prior to SAI arranging any type of meeting with one of our surrogates. Once the surrogate candidate has viewed the intended parent’s profile and confirmed her interest in them, the agency director will arrange for a meeting between the intended parents and the surrogate. Typically, this meeting occurs by phone, Skype, WeChat, FaceTime or in person. Upon receiving confirmation of a match from both parties, the agency director shall assist the intended parents with the completion of the remaining retaining process. Afterward, SAI will provide you with detailed instructions for your arrangement and begin guiding all parties through the process, to ensure their journey is expedited, enjoyable and memorable.
