The truth is, every surrogacy agency is different. Each agency will vary in its mission and priorities.

The gift of parenthood is priceless, and gestational carriers deserve to be valued for their selflessness in choosing to participate in a family-building journey. There are many benefits to being a surrogate, and they deserve each and every one of them as they support others in fulfilling their dreams of having a child.
Choosing a great team to help you through each step can make your journey a seamless, comfortable, and enjoyable experience. When you’re giving a gift as invaluable as the gift of life, you should be taken care of.
Here are five things to look for when choosing a surrogacy agency:
You want a program that is honest with you on all fronts. You need to know what you can expect and what the process will require of you. You always want to be sure they are giving you the facts, and all of the information necessary for you to move forward in the process.
Knowing you can trust your surrogacy agency is pivotal to a positive experience. Aside from all of the financial aspects of the process, there are other important matters that will require great care and total candor.
Find a program that you feel knows you, understands you, and is very forthcoming with you about your journey.
You are going to want an experienced surrogacy agency. Learn when your prospecting agency was established, how many journeys they have facilitated, and how gestational carriers they work with are compensated. Finding testimonials of other experiences can also help ensure a positive journey with the program you are considering.
Use a surrogacy agency that will prioritize your wants, needs, and concerns. This will also help them find the perfect match for you. If they value what you’re looking for out of the experience, they can better match you and ensure you are fulfilled while doing something so beautiful for a couple who can’t conceive.
This is a process that involves a lot of teamwork. Usually, it’s a seamless journey full of a lot of love and compassion from all parties. However, there are times when your health has to come first. You need to feel that you are the priority, as you are the pivotal piece in this puzzle.

When matching surrogates and intended parents, your team should look for that ideal combination of abstract and concrete qualities. It's critical to balance medical and social criteria to provide everyone with a relationship that brings them joy and happiness.
On average, our matching process takes around three months. The length of the process depends on the criteria of the surrogate and intended parents. Some matches are almost immediate, while others take time to curate and find exactly what everyone is looking for.
