Procedure For Surrogacy 

When preparing for surrogacy as an intended parent, it is important to determine your goals and be honest and truthful about the kind of surrogate you want. There are two different kinds of surrogacy procedures to become familiar with – Traditional Surrogacy 
(IUIs) and Gestational Surrogacy 
(IVF). Being transparent, and open about what you want from the beginning is key to your surrogacy process. As with any relationship, communication is the key to establishing a healthy relationship between intended parents and surrogates. Try to keep an open mind but never be afraid to voice your opinion, as this is your special experience! Remember that surrogates are partnering with you to make your dreams of family come true.

The Matching Process

Surrogacy brings with it many blessings—the largest of which is the creation of new life and the start of the intended parent’s new family journey. At Simple Surrogacy, we ensure the most individualized experience by finding the perfect surrogate match for you! Each potential surrogate mother is screened, background checked, financially checked, and criminally checked, including a psychological screening by a mental health professional.

Screening and Medical Process For Intended Parents

The Surrogate Medical Screening Process for intended parents is generally a review of your medical history, including infectious disease screening. If you have already had frozen embryos, you will not have to undergo the medical screening process, only your surrogate will. 

Legal Matters
