Contacting one of our offices and speaking with one of our nurse coordinators is the initial step in the surrogacy process for couples or singles. This no-obligation conversation is critical because the information we collect will typically allow us to determine your eligibility and suitability for our programme. We’ll answer any questions you have, ask you a few questions, and offer you with information regarding surrogate availability that you might be interested in. It is important to emphasise that we provide non-discriminatory services to all patients, regardless of race, gender, country origin, or sexual orientation.
The Consultation Phase
If you want to book a consultation (the “next” step), we will also provide you advice on how to have your previous fertility and health treatment records, if any, delivered to us for evaluation prior to your appointment. We can often arrange for you to meet and see all of those involved in your plans (physicians, embryologists, lawyers) over the course of a long weekend if you are travelling from out of state or abroad (Friday-Sunday). If you’d like to meet with potential surrogates at the same time, you’ll need to pay a non-refundable deposit in advance of your visit so that the surrogates can be present. Surrogates can only be requested for the first visit if the couple is coming from out of town.
