We are excited for you to embark on this remarkable journey of becoming a surrogate mother. This sacrifice is one of love, connectedness, and courage. You get to help hopeful parents grow their families who otherwise could not have such a gift. You should be so proud, and we are happy to support you. You did not find pregnancy to be complicated. You enjoyed the feeling of carrying forth life into this world and look forward to doing it again. But this time, you want to help those who cannot get pregnant, and that is truly an incredible gift. Thank you for taking steps to find out how to get started. At Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado, our licensed agency commits to walking with you throughout your incredible journey, answering all of your questions, and supporting you in the process. Just like the ABCs, Colorado surrogacy is easier to understand with a bit of explaining.
A – Agencies
There is a network of surrogacy agencies across the country ready and willing to help you embark on this journey. Here at Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Colorado, we equip you with the knowledge to find a plan and agency that works best for you and is nearest to you. We help match you with intended parents – an individual or couple – looking to grow their family whose values align with your mission and vice versa. We stand with you from start to finish and assure you that you have the tools you need to make this a more straightforward process with the least amount of complications possible during pregnancy. And if complications arise, we are here to help.
B – Becoming a Surrogate
Surrogacy can be confusing as the two most common types get confused for one another. Traditional Surrogacy is when the surrogate is the biological mother of the child. The egg came from the surrogate, and the sperm came from an intended parent or donor. As you can imagine, this caused a lot of heartaches and therefore has a worldwide ban. In today’s time, legal Surrogacy is gestational surrogacy. A gestational carrier is a surrogate that bears no relation to the child. The embryo is formed in a lab using the egg or sperm of an intended parent or donor. Then, the embryo is transferred to your uterus (feels like a regular pap smear) in hopes that it will implant and you carry to a full-term birth.
To become a surrogate mother, you would need to submit to a psychological evaluation, background checks, and provide proof of support, including a safe living environment, stable lifestyle, reliable transportation for doctor’s visits, US residency, and US citizen status.
C- Carrier Compensation
With such a great sacrifice, there is surrogate compensation. We are happy to inform you that through our agency, as a surrogate mother, you will receive compensation between $50k-$80k for your journey. The intended parents provide compensation, some support, health insurance, medical expenses, paternity clothes, healthy food, parking passes, and even child care compensation if you need it. Pregnancy can be a challenging time, and you are entitled to the utmost support from start to finish. You will not be alone.
D- Disqualifiers for Surrogacy
As with any vital endeavor, there are surrogate requirements that one must meet to qualify for becoming a surrogate mother. If you are younger than age 21 and older than age 39, you don’t qualify. Being a non-parent or being someone who has never carried a healthy pregnancy to full term will also disqualify you. Among other disqualifiers are:
- Not being a United States Citizen
- Not residing in the United States
- Having a BMI of over 30
- Having an STD
- Using illicit drugs
- Using government assistance or parenting a child on government assistance
- Being alcohol dependant
- Having suffered from postpartum depression
- Having a blood transfusion, tattoo, or piercing within one year of application
- Taking medication for mental health illness or history of mental health illness
