Screening Process for Gestational Carriers

If you meet Surrogacy Choices of Kansas’ requirements to become a gestational carrier (surrogate), you can proceed with the screening process which may include the following elements

  • Application: Your initial application will ask you some general questions about you and your reasons for pursuing surrogacy. After submitting the initial application, you will be contacted by one of our surrogacy specialist, who will gather more detailed information from you.
  • Medical History Information: We will ask you to submit detailed information about your health history as well as your family.
  • Social History Information: We may ask you to also submit detailed information about your social life and personality.
  • Physical Examination: You will be required to meet with a fertility specialist for a physical exam and other lab work to ensure you are healthy enough for surrogacy.
  • In-Home Assessment: A social worker may meet with you in your home to talk more about your motivations for pursuing surrogacy and goals. This meeting provides you the opportunity to ask questions, learn more about the process, and will help us get to know you better.
  • Background Checks: You will need to consent to standard criminal records and background checks.
  • Mental Health Evaluations: You will be required to meet with a mental health care professional to ensure that you fully understand the emotional impact of surrogacy and to determine that you are psychologically ready for the challenges of surrogacy.

Medical Requirements for Surrogates

The key to a successful surrogacy is your health! Throughout the surrogacy process, you will need to undergo various medical tests and procedures, as well as take fertility medications. Your well-being will be closely monitored by medical professionals every step of the way.

  • Medical Screening: This is part of the initial screening process. The medical screening will involve a physical as well as a variety of lab and blood work testing. You will be screened for sexually transmitted diseases and other communicable diseases, viruses and infections that can affect your fertility, and drug use. Your spouse or partner will likely also need to be screened for STDs and drug use. You will also have an ultrasound to determine the health of your uterus.
  • Fertility Treatments: Once legal contracts with the intended parents are signed, you will prepare for your surrogate pregnancy with fertility treatments. You will be prescribed several medications, which might include hormones and birth control pills; these help regulate your cycle and prepare you for IVF. You can expect more blood tests, injections, and ultrasounds throughout the IVF process – as well as through the beginning of your pregnancy.
  • Embryo Transfer: The intended mother’s (or donor’s) egg will be fertilized in the laboratory using the intended father’s (or donor’s) sperm. After an incubation period, the fertilized embryo is transferred into your uterus for implantation. This procedure is quick and painless and usually does not require medication or anesthesia. You may be required to stay at the fertility clinic for a few hours and rest for a few days after the transfer.
  • Prenatal Care: You will make routine visits to the fertility clinic (or your own OB) to receive regular blood tests and ultrasounds. You will continue to receive prenatal care as you would with any pregnancy.

Legal Requirements for Surrogates

The legal contract is one of the most important requirements for your surrogacy journey. Each surrogacy agreement varies depending on your circumstances and the relationship with the intended parents. Your specific legal rights and obligations will be outlined in your contract and we will ensure you fully understand the contract.

Prior to beginning medical procedures, you and the intended parents must agree to and sign the contract, which may include details such as:

In most cases, the intended parents’ attorney will draft the contract. You will review the contract with your own attorney to ensure that all of your requests have been included. Don’t worry, we will mediate all of these relationships! Once all necessary revisions have been made and both parties agree to the terms of the contract, you and the intended parents will sign the paperwork and the contract becomes legally binding. At that point, you can begin receiving payments and prepare for the embryo transfer.
