Process to become a surrogate


The first step is filling out the surrogacy candidate application. This application asks about your lifestyle, medical, fertility, and work history. Once reviewed and approved, our Surrogate Consultant will contact you to gather more information and possible medical records. Our consultant will also explain the entire surrogacy process and answer any questions you may have regarding this experience to make sure you are fully educated before it starts.

It is important we confirm all surrogate candidates are healthy and mentally and physically prepared for this rewarding experience.

Once you've been accepted into the Giving Tree family, our matching team will build your individual custom profile and identify intended parents match options.  Our approach is based on aligned values and criteria such as personal, medical and psychological factors.  Once candidates are identified, we will arrange a meeting to discuss all expectations during your journey, while helping you establish and form a connection between the intended parents and you.

Once both intended parents and you wish to progress to the next step. you will be invited to visit the IP’s IVF clinics for medical screening, where you will meet the IVF physicians for consultation and assessment. The physicians and nurses will guide you through the step by step medical process leading up to embryo transfer, pregnancy, delivery, and post pregnancy care. Giving Tree will also have a dedicated support team for you each step of the way to make it as easy as possible.
