Profile of a Surrogate Mom

To be honest, the real question is not whether Shared Conception will  accept you into our program, but whether being a surrogate mother is the right choice for you. We thoughtfully spend time helping each potential surrogate  decide if becoming a surrogate mother is the right choice for her and her family and whether this is a good time in their lives to begin this journey.

Based on our years of experience, we, at Shared Conception, have identified three  requirements which are just the foundation to begin the screening phase as we journey towards a woman becoming a surrogate mom.


1. Age factor-  a woman between  the ages of 21-38 years old is a good the maturity to deal with and understand the intricacies of surrogate parenting and the effect her decision may have on her own children. The upper age limit is based solely on medical considerations, and the link between age and high risk pregnancies.

2. Have a child of her own. Shared Conception believes that only someone who has gone through a pregnancy, felt a child move, and given birth can understand "bonding" and know if she can become a surrogate mother and relinquish the child to the Intended Parents. In addition to having given birth, we require that she must be actively raising her child. We believe that only a woman who has experience in parenting a child and understands what it takes to be a parent, can be a surrogate mother.

3. Financially secure. Since money should not be the major motivating factor in deciding to become a surrogate mother, anyone on welfare or receiving state assistance, is excluded from our program.

In a nutshell, we need to ensure this potential surrogate mom has the support of her family and that her children understand that she is not "giving away" a sibling.  At our surrogacy agency, we thoroughly screen our candidates to determine their psychological health and are confident with our choices.  Contact us for more information on becoming a surrogate mom through Shared Conception!
