What is the Colorado Surrogacy Process?
You might be wondering where to start to become a surrogate mother. The first step is to fill out our contact form to begin your application process. From there, we help you organize interviews with some intended parents to find your match. After that, you and your intended parents will go through medical screenings to make sure you are both physically and mentally ready for your journey. You will then sign the necessary legal documents that you will go over with your chosen lawyer. Then finally, you get to carry your intended parents’ child to term!
What is Gestational Surrogacy?
You have probably been seeing the term “gestational surrogacy” pop up in your research. Gestational surrogacy means the surrogate mother is in no way genetically linked to the baby. Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado provides gestational surrogacy because it keeps everyone involved mentally, physically, and emotionally safe.
How is gestational surrogacy done? Through in vitro fertilization (IVF), the intended mother’s egg is then fertilized by the intended father’s sperm in a lab. Then the surrogate mother carries the fertilized egg to term. This way, the surrogate mother is not biologically linked to the baby. This process allows you, the surrogate mother, to focus on giving and receiving support through your journey. You are not alone in this process. Your intended parents will be there to provide emotional support, and our professional team will be ready to help you through each step.
In What Ways am I Protected through the Surrogacy Process?

How am I Compensated as a Surrogate Mother?
You are taking on a selfless, brave, and kind act of generosity, so we want to make sure you are fairly compensated on your journey. Our compensation plan varies on the individual needs of the surrogate mother. Our goal is to be fair and transparent when discussing a compensation plan.
