FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE YOUR AGENCY?

At the Surrogacy Center of Philadelphia, we think you deserve a different kind of experience.  What does that look like? To start, we give you a realistic budget and offer certified financial coaches that will help you fund your journey.  We completely pre-screen all surrogates in our program, so you never set your heart on someone who isn’t a viable candidate. We hear your story and will match you with a surrogate who has the same values as your family.  All of this happens before we ever ask for a penny from you.

Has a surrogate ever changed her mind?

We have never had this happen before, but this is always a concern on behalf of Intended Parents. All gestational carriers undergo extensive evaluation from a physical and emotional standpoint.  We also emphasize to all our surrogates that this is a family-based decision. The entire surrogacy process can have an impact on a marriage and family duties. Problems arise when a gestational carrier is unsupported during the process (ex. spouse is lukewarm to the idea) or has other than altruistic primary motivations (ex. financial). Our screening process ensures that the surrogates in our program fully understand the commitment they are making on behalf of themselves and their families.

HOW LONG DOES A SURROGACY JOURNEY TAKE?

The average surrogacy journey is between 12 – 15 months long.  We currently have a waitlist for matching. The average wait to be matched is between 3 – 6 months.
