Surrogate Mother Requirements
Our surrogate mother requirements have changed throughout the years as our laws and industry standards have changed. For instance, many considered California to be the only state where you could become a surrogate and while California is the most open state when it comes to surrogacy, we still have certain requirements to uphold.
Our surrogate requirements are meant to protect all parties involved and to make sure that we have a successful surrogacy in all areas from pregnancy to birth. Some of the surrogate mother requirements you see below are also different from clinic to clinic which means they’re not set in stone. For example, BMI acceptance differs from clinic to clinic and if your BMI is over or under by a point it doesn’t completely rule you out. Your best option is to speak to our Program Director, Rebecca, so that you can go over all the other surrogacy requirements and she’ll be able to best advise you on your potential as a surrogate as well as how to become a surrogate with SAI.
Remember, our requirements aren’t made to hinder your journey but instead they’re made to help you on your journey. You and your IP’s deserve the best opportunity at success possible and throughout our 21 years in surrogacy we’ve managed to accept many surrogates from many walks of life who want nothing more than to help make a difference.
Whether you’re a surrogate or an IP and are working with Surrogate Alternatives, Inc. on the East or West coast there are a number of factors or variables that can complicate surrogacy laws so it’s always important to consult with our Program Director and a reproductive attorney in the state where your surrogacy is taking place.
We’re excited that you’re interested in the process and look forward to sharing this journey with you. If you have any questions about our process to become a surrogate mother or our program requirements, please feel free to contact us.
