Before we agree to help you on you path, be prepared to give us insight into every aspect of your life. We need to make sure you are truly ready, and would be a good fit. The following is a basic list of requirements:

At The Select Surrogate, all potential surrogates are thoroughly pre-screened before being invited into our program; and we hope that you are one of the few that will make it through.


You Are in Good General Health

First and foremost, it is important you are in good general health, and that you and your partner are free of any sexually transmitted diseases. Continued cigarette smoking, frequent alcohol consumption and, of course, any kind if illicit drug use, would all disqualify a surrogate from our program.

You Get Pregnancy Easily

It is also important to have a history of getting pregnant easily. Fertility cycles can be expensive, and itís important that if you are chosen you won't have any obstacles in your reproductive system that might make it difficult for a pregnancy to take hold.

You Have Carried at Least One Baby to Term

Then we explore whether you have had any children of your own. We also prefer your children to be living in the home. Having undergone child birth for one of your own children, it is possible for you to understand what exactly is being asked of you.

You Have a Good History of Healthy Pregnancy

Once we've established you can get pregnant easily, and you have gone through the process yourself, we examine your medical records related to those pregnancies to make sure they were healthy and natural. We also want to make sure there were no extraordinary complications in the delivery process.

You Have a Clean Criminal Background

Select Surrogates also undergo a thorough background check. We do this to make sure there is no history of criminal activity, as well as to verify all the information weíve been given is valid. If we find any disparity, we would likely disqualify any surrogate candidate.

You Pass the Psychological Evaluation

Once your background has been cleared, we provide you a psychological screening with a trained psychologist who specializes in surrogacy cases.

Your Financial and Living Situation is Stable

An important part of the pre-screening process includes an understanding of your living situation and financial status. Itís important that you are economically stable and that your living situation is secure, for at least the length of the pregnancy. Instability can result in stress during pregnancy, and strenuous physical activity like moving, can also be troublesome. We also want to make sure you are making this sacrifice because you want to help a family to have a baby, and not because you are in dire financial straits.

You Have Supportive Family and Friends

Your support system is also very important. Here there are a number of things to consider if you would like to become a surrogate: Are you married? If so, is your spouse on board with the surrogacy? If not, chances are, we wonít proceed. If you are single, do you have friends or family who are supportive of your decision?

You Live in the State of California

Unfortunately, we cannot accept surrogates outside California at this time.
