Our Surrogacy Program in Southern California

Surrogacy is a beautiful journey for both intended parents (IPs) and gestational carriers. At Fertility Source Companies, we make the surrogacy process as straightforward and positive as possible, so new parents can focus on what matters most — the birth of their baby.

At Fertility Source Companies, we’re dedicated to finding ideal matches and getting to know all parties involved on a personal level. We thoroughly screen our surrogates before accepting them into our program, so IPs can rest easy knowing their surrogate is physically, mentally, and emotionally prepared for the journey. We work within many Southern California cities, including Los Angeles, Irvine, San Diego, Anaheim, and more.

“Thanks so much for your help on things. You rock. I appreciate all you have been doing for this process”

Why Become a Surrogate in Southern California

There are many reasons why women decide to become surrogates.

Surrogate Requirements in Southern California

At Fertility Source Companies, our surrogacy requirements are in accordance with the recommended standards set forth by the assisted reproduction community. We uphold these standards not just in Southern California, but the entire United States. Some important requirements include:

  • Being between the ages of 21 to 43 years old
  • Having delivered at least one child that is currently being raised by the surrogate candidate
  • Having a history of past pregnancies without complications
  • Being in good overall health (e.g., being a non-smoker, having a healthy BMI, etc.)

The Surrogacy Process

The surrogacy process starts with filling out an application. Then, our surrogacy coordinators review it to determine your eligibility. Once approved, we’ll call you to discuss your application in greater detail as well as request and review your pregnancy records. After this, we’ll conduct a thorough assessment of your mental health, your household, and your social history.

After you’ve cleared each screening, we’ll put you into our database so you can match with your intended parents. If an IP shows interest in your profile, we’ll arrange a meeting for you to meet to ensure you’re a great match. If all goes well, we’ll schedule a complete physical evaluation at the intended parent’s fertility clinic of choice and begin guiding you through the legal process.

Finally, you'll be impregnated via in vitro fertilization (IVF) using an embryo created from the intended parents' eggs and sperm or those of a donor. Once pregnant, you’ll progress through the process normally, carrying the baby for nine beautiful months until you deliver it for the IPs.
