Surrogate Overview

Working with the best.

NW Surrogacy Center rigorously recruits 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. 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.”

– Jacki, Intended Parent

NWSC Surrogate Screening Process

Surrogates in our program have previously given birth to a healthy child and are actively parenting their child. Many are married and employed. 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 (if partnered, the partner must also pass), 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. NWSC works hard to match surrogates and intended parents who have similar goals and expectations about their relationship and surrogacy.
