Is The Gestational Surrogate Screened?
Absolutely. Several levels of screening take place. Heart of Surrogacy, LLC completes a pre-screening of all gestational surrogate applicants to determine whether they meet our initial criteria for consideration. Once the gestational surrogate has satisfactorily completed all pre-screening steps, we conduct a more in-depth screening including criminal background checks, references, interviews, medical documentation, potential medical exams, in-home visit, home evaluation, and a personal interview of the surrogate. Finally, psychological screening will take place by a licensed clinical social worker or mental health counselor experienced in gestational surrogacy as well as medical screening by the fertility physician’s office to assure that the parties are a medical match.
Do The Intended Parents And Surrogate Meet?
In most matches, yes. It is essential to the unique relationship between the parties that they meet face to face and get to know each other. Our gestational surrogates are not doing this for the money but rather for the joy they will experience in helping to create a family, and they want (and have every right) to know the people for whom they are carrying a child. The agency will make the arrangements and an experienced counselor associated with our program will host the match meeting.
