Thank you for considering the selfless gift of becoming a surrogate. It's a big step, and you probably have a lot of questions. We're here for you.

How It Works

Most surrogates make it from consult to match in about 6-8 weeks and are between the age of 21 and 39.

Application Process to Matching

Your application is reviewed within 1 business day. We may contact you with any additional questions.

Once your application is accepted, we’ll schedule a phone consult where we’ll discuss any questions or concerns.

Next we'll submit paperwork to complete your profile for intended parents for matching.

You can meet the intended parents in person or through video call.

Once Matched, It’s Time for Screening.

We’ll make all your travel arrangements and appointments. Depending on where you’re coming from you may stay overnight. Screening consists of two appointments:

  • a medical screening with our IVF Physician
  • a psychological screening with Fertility Counseling Services

Remember that you will be reimbursed for child care. Clearance should be received within two weeks. Once screening & medical clearance is complete, your match is official.

To be matched with intended parents, a short wait time (about 1-2 weeks for vast majority) occurs. Specific preferences may cause longer wait times, but generally no longer than a month.

After the Positive Pregnancy Test

You will have a pregnancy test about 10 days past transfer.

Around 8 weeks pregnant, you will be transferred to an obstetrician in your area.

Harvest will continue to support you and the intended parents throughout the entire pregnancy and beyond.

Most hospitals are great with surrogacy births. In preparation for the birth we will encourage you and your intended parents to:

  • attend a hospital tour to familiarize yourselves with the facility
  • create a birth plan to make sure the hospital staff know an upcoming surrogate birth

Virtually all intended parents want to be present at the birth and do their absolute best to be there. However, we all know sometimes babies arrive earlier than expected, so be prepared for anything.

What Our Surrogates Experienced

They've lived through the whole process. Here's what they thought.

"Being a surrogate was a very special experience for me and my family. I feel like this journey has been crucial for making me the woman I am today."

"My surrogacies are a gift that no one can ever take away from me. Surrogacy is very much a part of who I am."
— Grace

"I always knew surrogacy was something I could do to help others, but looking back now, it is about so much more than simply lending a helping hand. It is about giving people hope."
