What is the surrogacy process?

While it’s relatively simple to understand “What is surrogacy?“,  understanding the process is a bit more involved. The surrogacy process can be complex, and working with an experienced agency like Be Parent helps navigate the milestones and provides support when you need it most.

A general overview of the process:

  • Apply as a surrogate or a parent
  • Meet all requirements (Surrogates) and complete initial consultation (parents)
  • Medical screenings, surrogate medications and embryo transfer
  • Confirmation of pregnancy
  • Delivery day and beyond

Be Parent is a relationship-based agency, meaning we encourage strong relationships between intended parents and surrogates.

Common questions about surrogacy

Whether you’re considering surrogacy, becoming a parent through surrogacy or still understanding what is the surrogacy you may have questions along the way. 

What is the difference between gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy?

There are two types of surrogacy – gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy. In a typical gestational surrogacy arrangement, intended parents create embryos through in vitro fertilization. One or more of these embryos is implanted in a surrogate (gestational carrier), who carries the child or children to term, but has no genetic relationship to them.

Gestational surrogates’ makeup the vast majority of modern surrogacy arrangements. By contracts, traditional surrogates typically become pregnant through artificial insemination, and have a genetic connection to the child or children they carry for their intended parents. We do not arrange traditional surrogacies.
