YOU CHOOSE THE DONOR, WE DO THE REST.
There are not many opportunities in life where you have the chance to give another person a gift as special as a child. As a surrogate mother, you will be giving the most selfless gift as you help intended parents build a family of their own. There are many different reasons why some intended parents may turn to surrogacy as a means to welcome a child into the world, but as a surrogate mother, you are giving them the hope that they can achieve their dreams of parenthood.

Do You Meet Oregon’s Requirements to Become a Surrogate?
Becoming a surrogate is a huge responsibility. For this reason, not just anyone can take on this job. Each state sets guidelines that women interested in becoming surrogates must meet in order to qualify to move forward with the journey. The reason for these requirements is so that only those that are healthy and present the most viable chance of a successful pregnancy go on to carry a child for intended parents.
The requirements that you must meet to become a surrogate mother in Oregon are as follows:
- The surrogate mother must have given birth at least once previously with no medical complications and no more than two C-sections
- The surrogate mother must be healthy and a non-smoker
- The surrogate mother must have a body mass index of 18 to 32
- The surrogate mother must be between the ages of 21 and 40 years old

Does Surrogacy Work For Your Life?
While this is an exciting time, the decision to become a surrogate is one that should not be taken lightly. While the decision to become a surrogate mother offers families who have been longing for a child the opportunity to realize their dreams of parenthood, you will need to be completely honest with yourself and understand whether or not you are truly prepared to put in the time and energy required to become a surrogate mother.
The surrogacy journey may take up to a year of your full commitment and will also require your physical, mental, and emotional investment. We believe it is important for potential surrogates to be prepared to make some sacrifices to their time, family, and career during the surrogacy journey. It is imperative that your own family is supportive of your decision to move forward with the application. This is especially true of a life partner or spouse if applicable. Having spousal support is necessary for legal purposes because the spouse of a surrogate must confirm that they understand they have no parental rights to the intended parents’ child.
What Is Gestational Surrogacy?
At Elevate Baby, if you qualify to become a surrogate, you will participate in what is known as gestational surrogacy. Gestational surrogacy is when the woman who carries the child for intended parents has no biological link to the baby. While there is another form of surrogacy called traditional surrogacy that does allow the surrogate mother to have a biological link to the child, this type of surrogacy is not practiced at Elevate Baby.
If you have additional questions regarding gestational surrogacy and what it entails, contact our team of Oregon surrogacy agents for more information. We are happy to help you throughout each step of your surrogacy journey.
