Surrogacy Process:
A Step-by-Step Guide

How to become a surrogate...

Explore our Detailed Process and Exceptional Benefits

Becoming a surrogate is a profound and selfless act where a woman carries a baby for another person or couple, known as the intended parent(s). At Patriot Conceptions, our focus is on assisting intended parents who undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF), allowing the surrogate to carry a baby to whom she is not genetically or legally related. As part of our program, the surrogate is compensated for her time and efforts by the intended parent(s). The embryo is typically created from the intended father’s sperm, or donor sperm, and the intended mother’s egg, or donor egg. Upon the baby's birth, the intended parents are legally recognized on the birth certificate as the parents, assuming all responsibilities for the child.

The process to become a surrogate mother involves five basic steps.
