Depending on where you live and the fertility clinic that you work with, travel might be needed. However, if you do not want to travel, please let us know during the application phase and we can match you with someone local. Matching time might take a little longer though.

Usually, IVF clinics set an age limit of 40 because the risks associated with pregnancy for her and the baby become higher. But, in some cases, IVF clinics will approve woman over 40.
We can use your current policy as long as there are no surrogacy exclusions. The insurance premiums, co-pays and deductibles will all be covered by the intended parents.
We work with many single moms! We want all our surrogates to have support whether they are single, married or partnered. Their marital status does not matter.
After you fill out your application and submit your medical records, the IVF physician will review. If approved, we can move ahead.

The intended parents that you are matched with will pay any traveling expenses related to your surrogacy.

Your surrogacy funds will be held by a third party escrow agency. This way, you can receive funds by direct deposit or check, whichever you prefer, in a timely and safe manner.
