Potential surrogate mothers are screened to ensure they are physically and psychologically fit to embark on the arduous journey that is carrying someone else’s unborn child. Lab work may include blood tests, urinalysis, PAP smear, and a drug screen. The physical will assess your overall health, and to further determine you are fit for pregnancy, a vaginal ultrasound and hysteroscopy may be necessary. The psychological evaluation and medical screening is a measure we take to ensure the safety of both the surrogate and the baby.

The IVF Process and Embryo Transfer

Typically, a surrogate will begin taking medication a month prior to the embryo transfer. All costs will be covered, of course, and a surrogate’s only requirement is to follow the doctor’s orders for medications and other health-related recommendations. Whether the embryo transfer is fresh or frozen, the process only takes a matter of minutes. Most surrogates will be ordered to take it easy for about 24 hours after the embryo transfer. Ten to fourteen days after the transfer, a blood test will confirm the pregnancy, and the journey will truly begin.
