Meet Your Surrogate

Less than 1% of women who apply qualify to become a GG surrogate.

Every GG surrogate is fully screened before she meets the client. We do this to help reduce the financial and emotional risk for you.

Our unique surrogate screening process includes an extensive application; telephone and in-person interviews; psychological testing and evaluation; medical examination by an In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) specialist; drug, nicotine, and infectious disease screening, criminal background check.

If you need the assistance of an egg donor, around this time we will assist you in locating one.

The Medical Cycle

Where possibility becomes reality.

Once your surrogate match is confirmed, you will fund your expense account with GG and move on to the legal phase. During this time, if you have an egg donor, she will go in for screening, if she has not already. Your medical screening is usually done before this time or right around the time of your surrogate match.

Once legal is completed, the surrogate and donor/intended mother’s cycles are synchronized and several weeks later is an attempt at pregnancy. Pregnancy test results will be known 10 to 12 days later.

You are Almost Home

You are almost home.

At about 8 to 10 weeks pregnant, your IVF physician will release your surrogate to her obstetrician.

Towards the end of the 2nd trimester of your surrogate pregnancy, plans will begin to set up the hospital for your arrival. The day you have been waiting for is nearly here.

From start to finish, the gestational surrogacy program typically ranges in time from 15-20 months. GG has been with you the entire way.From your initial consultation to taking your baby home, we are with you providing guidance, expertise, and support through every step.
