Our 3-Step Surrogate Screening Process

Prescreening: We'll break down the first step of Smart Surrogacy's screening process. After a woman submits a surrogate application, our dedicated Prescreening Team engages with her to gather essential information. This step involves health and pregnancy history, background checks, insurance details, and more. Learn why progressing beyond this stage is crucial for your surrogacy journey's success.

Social Work Screening: The Surrogacy Consultation: Explore the pivotal role of our licensed social workers in the screening process. During in-depth surrogacy consultations, surrogate applicants are assessed on various aspects, including motivation, pregnancy history, relationships, and surrogacy expectations. Discover why understanding a surrogate's emotional and psychological readiness is essential for a harmonious journey.

Psychological Exam: We'll shed light on the final step of the screening process, the psychological assessment. Surrogates undergo psychological testing to evaluate their overall psychological functioning and suitability for the program. Learn how this assessment contributes to providing confidence and security to intended parents.

When Is a Surrogate Ready for Matching?

The Journey Acknowledgement Form: Once a surrogate successfully completes all three screening steps, she signs the "Journey Acknowledgement Form." Understand the significance of this form and how it signifies a surrogate's readiness to proceed to the matching stage.

Matching with Intended Parents: Learn about the collaborative process between Smart Surrogacy's team and the screened surrogates to find the ideal match with waiting intended parents. Discover how our commitment to thorough screening ensures a smoother and more secure surrogacy journey for all parties involved.
