Do you qualify to be a surrogate?

Take our 5-minute quiz below to find out!

Hi Momma! First things first, are you between the ages of 21 and 39?

Is your BMI under 33? (The doctor will require a surrogate to have a BMI between 18-33 in order to do surrogacy - use the box below to calculate yours!)

Your BMI is:

Have you given birth before? (You've got to be a mother already, in order to be a surrogate!)

Do you live in Louisiana, Nebraska or Michigan? (These States do not have good laws for surrogacy right now, unfortunately).

Are you a U.S. Citizen, and if not, do you have a valid green card or work permit? (Our program only works with US based surrogates at this time.)

Do you have a valid driver's license and reliable transportation? (You will need to be able to get around easily to doctor's appointments.)

Do you smoke or use tobacco? (You've got to be healthy to do surrogacy! Here's another great reason to quit, momma!)

Do you currently use recreational drugs? (No judgement, but NO drugs allowed, even marijuana, if you sign up to be a surrogate, and you WILL be tested.)

Would you be willing to stop consuming alcohol if you become pregnant?

Have you or your partner ever been convicted of a felony? (We know this is personal but there will be a background check run so we've got to ask!)

Are you currently receiving any type of government assistance such as welfare or food stamps? (If you have health insurance through your State that is ok but we need surrogates to be financially stable to do a great job at surrogacy!)

Were any of your singleton pregnancies delivered very early, BEFORE 36-37 weeks’ gestation? (Doctors will screen your medical records to check that your deliveries were full term for you to move forward as a surrogate. Twins that come early are an exception!)

Have you had more than 2 C-Sections? (Doctors can be picky about this for surrogacy.)

Have you had more than 2 miscarriages, stillbirths, or abortions?

Have you ever lost custody of a child?

Have you ever been diagnosed with Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, or severe Post-Partum Depression?

Have you ever taken anti-depressants, anti-psychotics, or anti-anxiety medications DURING pregnancy?

If your application for surrogacy is approved, would you be open to compensation ranging between $40,000- $70,000+ with generous perks and benefits? (Previous surrogacy experience, your employment, your health insurance, and where you live can all contribute to how much you'll be able to earn as a surrogate.)
