Become a Surrogate

Building Families Through the Gift of Surrogacy

When it comes to infertility, it can take a village to conceive a baby. Surrogates play an incredible role in helping aspiring parents grow their families, often after years of trying unsuccessfully.

Whether you are a first-time surrogate or have helped multiple couples and individuals to build a family, ELITE IVF will be there to manage and coordinate the entire process. Our top- quality care will give you the time and freedom to focus on the experience of creating a tiny miracle.

We recognize that you can be a hero to an aspiring family and deserve to feel confident in your surrogacy plan. ELITE IVF is dedicated to supporting you throughout this rewarding journey.

What is Gestational Surrogacy?

A: A surrogate is a woman who carries and delivers a baby for someone else. The surrogate is known as a “gestational surrogate” or “gestational carrier,” while the parents-to-be are the “intended parents.” The intended parents are involved from start to finish. They are present at the birth, and will legally become the baby’s parents after delivery.

In gestational surrogacy, the baby is not biologically linked to the surrogate. An embryo is created using an egg of either the intended mother or egg donor, while the sperm is taken from the intended father or sperm donor. That embryo is then implanted in the surrogate’s uterus during an embryo transfer.

Becoming an ELITE IVF Surrogate
A: Surrogacy is a life-changing experience that involves commitment and a drive to help make someone’s dream come true. The ideal surrogate is a woman who meets the following criteria:

  • Is currently between the ages of 21 and 45
  • Has given birth to at least one child with minimal complications during pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum
  • Understands and welcomes the experience of being pregnant
  • Maintains a healthy lifestyle
  • Has no criminal history
  • Has access to reliable transportation

Why Become a Surrogate?

A: There are many reasons why aspiring parents turn to a full-service egg donor and surrogacy agency. Lack of eggs or sperm can mean having a genetic child is not always possible, while others may not be able to carry a pregnancy to term without risking their own health.

Egg donors and surrogates play a vital role in helping those who are struggling to have a baby, whether that be due to medical issues, infertility, or genetic disorders. Additionally, many same-sex couples turn to surrogacy agencies for help building their family. Becoming a surrogate or egg donor gives you the chance to help a couple or individual who would love a child of their own.

How a Surrogacy Agency Can Help Support Your Journey

A: Choosing to embark on the journey of surrogacy is a decision that should be made with careful consideration.

Working with a global surrogacy agency ensures a more rewarding and enjoyable process for both the surrogate mother and the intended parent(s).

Our team of experienced professionals put your physical and emotional needs first, as well as managing all treatment, legalities, finances and logistics. Navigating the journey of surrogacy without the help of an agency can put you at unnecessary risk. With ELITE IVF, you can be sure that your health, assurance and well-being are our top priorities.

In addition to exceptional medical care, we provide our surrogates with the full-circle support that is needed for helping to build a family. ELITE IVF pre-screens all potential surrogates and intended parents through evaluations, background checks and medical screenings. This pre-screening helps all parties feel more comfortable in the process, allowing them to focus on the journey ahead.

As a part of the initial application process and profile creation, our team will clarify all expectations in writing. This includes communication, relationships, and delivery. We then provide potential matches of intended parents based on desires for a similar surrogacy experience.

ELITE IVF is more than an agency — we are both your trusted partner and advocate during your surrogacy journey.
