Learn more about each step of the surrogacy process
The Center for Surrogate Parenting (CSP) believes that surrogacy is a life-changing journey for everyone involved. The surrogacy process at our US surrogacy agency supports healthy women who are helping hopeful parents fulfill their dream of taking home a baby. One of the most important aspects of this journey is the prospective gestational surrogate understanding each step of the commitment.
Starting the surrogacy process at CSP
The journey begins with you filling out a surrogate application on our website. Once approved, one of our case coordinators (who was once a surrogate with CSP) will contact you about scheduling a phone interview. This call will cover the screening process, expectations and requirements. You will also discuss your wish list for the hopeful parents you’d like to help.
In addition, a counselor will interview you and a doctor will assess your overall physical health. CSP also requires you to attend support group meetings with other surrogates. These meetings are wonderful because you are in a room with amazing ladies just like you who have stepped forward and offered to help.
The next step of the surrogacy process involves your counselor working with you to find the right match. You will be able to select from at least three hopeful parents. When there is a potential match, you will meet the parents via Skype/Zoom/WeChat or in person. If all parties agree to work together, attorneys will prepare legal contracts. You will receive free legal support.
Taking the next steps to become a surrogate
After finalizing the match, you’ll receive a health evaluation at the hopeful parent’s fertility clinic. Once you receive medical clearance, the clinic will give you a calendar for your medication cycle and a potential embryo transfer date. We’ll work closely with you to make sure you understand all the instructions. By this time, you and your partner have met your hopeful parents face to face.
The next, exciting step in the surrogacy process is the positive pregnancy test. You will receive care from the fertility clinic for a few weeks following the pregnancy confirmation. Then, you will switch back to your OB/GYN, who will deliver the baby. We will help you and the hopeful parents decide which prenatal appointments the parents will attend and how they will participate in the birth.
When it comes time to welcome new life into the world, your hopeful parents will be there for the birth of their baby. This is when you get to see the joy on their faces as you place their child in their arms. It is a beautiful experience for all.
