The length of time is difficult to predict because it will vary widely depending on the circumstances. Some couples are matched as quickly as 2-3 weeks. The matching process should not be rushed and we tell couples to be prepared for up to 6-8 months before a match is completed, with an average match time of 4 months. Only 1 in 30 applicants become SSA surrogates. A well qualified surrogate is one of the most important aspects of a successful arrangement. This woman is going to be taking care of your future child. Isn’t the right match worth the wait?
