Never. Any child you carry as an SSA surrogate mother will either be the biological child of the intended mother or an egg donor. SSA does not provide traditional surrogacy services (where the child is the surrogate’s biological child).
You will receive financial compensation for carrying the pregnancy and for the time, inconvenience, and risks involved. We offer first-time surrogates base compensation of $40,000 plus a monthly expense allowance and benefits package that can bring your total compensation to $40,000+. You will be reimbursed for all medical, travel, lost wages and other expenses. Health
SSA accepts surrogates into our program who live in any “surrogate friendly” state. We prefer surrogates living in Texas, Georgia, Colorado, or Florida. We do not currently accept applications from surrogates living in New York, New Jersey, Nebraska, Washington, Michigan or Louisiana.
SSA only provides arrangements in states where surrogacy is legal. For example, under Texas law, qualifying surrogate arrangements are both legal and enforceable by the court. The intended parents go directly on the original birth certificate and you will have no legal responsibility for the child. The same applies for states like Colorado and Utah.
EXPERIENCE In business for 25 years, SSA is the oldest and most experienced surrogacy and egg donation agency in Texas and the southwest and is among the five oldest agencies in the nation. With licensed counselors and attorneys on staff, you have the comfort of knowing that your arrangement is in the hands of professionals.
The basic steps are initial screening, application, psychological assessment/counseling, meeting the intended parents, home visit, medical evaluation, legal contract, the IVF medical process and, finally, pregnancy and delivery. After you have submitted your application, an SSA counselor will call you for a detailed clinical interview. We like to see you while talking with you so
