Requirements For Gestational Carriers

If you are exploring your options to become a Gestational Carrier (a woman who carries a child for someone else and has no genetic tie to the child whatsoever) please be aware that qualified candidates for gestational surrogacy should meet the following criteria:

  • Be between 20 and 40 years of age
    • Depending on your state laws, some require you to be 21
  • Height and weight in proportion
    • BMI 30 or below online calculators are available to check this if you are unsure such as
  • Healthy physical condition
    • Not currently taking medications including but not limited to anti-depressants or anti-anxiety for a minimum of 6 months prior to applying. A history of depression will disqualify.
  • Non smoker
    • Absolutely NO history of prior drug abuse of any kind will be accepted.
  • Have demonstrated uncomplicated pregnancy(s) and delivery(s)
  • Free of sexually transmitted diseases
    • Previous STI that have been cleared up with medication does not disqualify
  • Not dependent on government assistance
    • This does not include state funded insurance. Inquire to learn more.
  • Must pass criminal background check
    • NO EXCEPTIONS! Partners must pass as well
Below is the inquiry form with just basic information. Surrogacy is very diverse from state to state and case by case. The first steps are qualifying you as a candidate to determine if you are eligible to become a Gestational Carrier not just based on the above information but your location as well which plays a huge part on surrogacy. We would not want all your personal information before knowing if you were in a surrogacy friendly state. Aside from the above listed criteria I personally help girls who may not qualify today but need to work on a few things to qualify down the road by educating them on a few things to work on and setting a goal for surrogacy at a time that might fit better for them later.
If basic criteria is met and you are indeed in a surrogate friendly location we will send you some basic questions that help us determine together whether timing is good for you and your family to embark on a surrogacy journey at this time. If all is well and you are ready to begin this journey we will go on to fill out a full profile to be shared with potential parents. We are super careful about unnecessarily wasting time. I have a step by step qualification because we value your time and would not want to waste precious moments filling out an 8 page detailed profile unless we were confident we could find you the right match. We don’t use an “automated system” to generate auto responses to you. You actually get a live person EVERY time you email or fill in a response to us.
Once the above mentioned steps are completed I am interested in finding out more about you and establishing
your top goals for becoming a carrier. Setting realistic expectations as well as properly preparing you for what to expect is our specialty. All cases are unique and no two journeys are alike. Everything will be gone over in great detail. There will be no obligation to proceed if you should feel we are not the right fit to work together for any reason. We will not share any identifying information with intended parent(s) until a match is solidified.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at any time.

I am always happy to share information and my passion for a very special industry that I am so privileged to serve.
