We rigorously recruit the best candidates for surrogacy. We seek out women who are mature, stable, and enjoy being pregnant. Our surrogates range in age, experience, and personality type, but all of them want to help people have children.
“I really liked getting to know my surrogate and her family and building a relationship with these new people who were going to be a big part of my life. Most people don't get to experience a pregnancy with another woman and her family. I felt like we had a family together and we created life together. It was a beautiful process, a beautiful experience.”
Surrogates in our program have previously given birth to a healthy child and are actively parenting their child. Many are married and employed. Our surrogates are between the ages of 21 and 40. We do not accept smokers, and surrogates are required to abstain from drugs and alcohol. They must be willing and able to go through the demands of medical procedures, pregnancy, and placement. Potential surrogates must pass a background check, a psychological evaluation performed by a clinical psychologist, a home visit, and medical examinations.
NWSC provides intended parents with detailed information about potential surrogates, including medical and social history, physical description, and personal interests. Most importantly, you will have the opportunity to meet and get to know your potential surrogate. You may review multiple profiles and meet more than one candidate until you find the one you feel is right. And NWSC works hard to match surrogates and intended parents who have similar goals and expectations about their relationship and the surrogacy.
