Screening

Please do not get any tattoos, or body piercings from the time you agree to Surrogacy. The law requires that a Surrogate wait 6 months after having any body piercing or receiving a tattoo before she can donate. This is due to the increased risk of infectious diseases.

Potential surrogates will be required to provide us with full copies of previous medical records including all prenatal, labor & delivery and post natal check-up and, if available, previous surrogacy cycle medical records and previous psychological records.

Surrogates will undergo psychological testing with a qualified mental health professional and complete a PAI test or other accepted psychological test. We will be provided with a  psychological clearance letter from this appointment.

All surrogates must have medical clearance from her OB/GYN in writing including a recent doctor’s visit for height, weight, BMI, glucose level, blood pressure and Pap smear (all must be normal to pass medical clearance.

The Primary medical professional is chosen by the Intended Parents. This is the clinic/team/physicians who will be in charge of the surrogate’s medical screening and fertility treatment for both you and the Intended Mother or their egg donor. We encourage our surrogates to investigate the medical service provider chosen by the Intended Parents and satisfy themselves as to their professionalism and expertise.

THERE ARE POTENTIAL RISKS INHERENT WITH ALL ASPECTS OF THE SURROGACY MEDICAL PROCESS AND PROCEDURES, INCLUDING TAKING ANY MEDICATION. IT IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE DONOR TO INVESTIGATE ALL SUCH RISKS AND TO DISCUSS ALL MEDICAL ISSUES WITH THE PRIMARY PHYSICIAN.
