Before we can show your profile to future parents, you must complete our admissions process. This includes completing your online surrogacy profile, a phone or Skype interview and submitting the necessary documents and pictures. The time frame for becoming searchable and available for being discovered is mostly dependent on how quickly you complete the admissions process.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that you will become a surrogate, but typically surrogates find the right future parents within 1-3 months. It usually takes another 1-3 months to schedule and complete the medical screening, psychological evaluation and legal contracts. Once legal contracts are done, the embryo transfers usually take place in the next 3-4 weeks. After that, you can expect a normal pregnancy term as long as there are no complications.
There are several factors that are taken into consideration in the surrogacy process with the most important factor being what you and the future parents are looking for. Other factors include age, background, marital status, BMI and previous childbirth history. We have some surrogates who were discovered by parents very quickly, while others may take longer. We recommend that our surrogates make sure they keep their profiles current, that pictures are kept up to date and we even recommend submitting a “Surro Clip” which is a brief introduction video about yourself.
