How our surrogacy program works

A gestational surrogate carries a child conceived through in-vitro fertilization (IVF) using either the intended mother’s egg or those from an egg donor. Therefore, the child will not be genetically related to the gestational surrogate.

These are a few of the requirements for becoming a gestational surrogate in Rhode Island:

  • 21 to 44 years old

  • Given birth to a child of your own

  • A healthy non-smoker

  • Willing to help others create a family

  • Healthy weight with a BMI 32 or less

Please view additional requirements and read about How the Program Works.

Compensation and Benefits

Among the many aspects to consider when choosing a surrogacy program are the financial arrangements. The amount of any payments or ancillary expenses will be based on multiple factors. For details, please review the Compensation and Benefits for Gestational Surrogates, or contact us directly with your questions.

I am so thankful that when I made the decision to become a surrogate that I found Meryl. She was wonderful from the start and her matching me as a surrogate with intended parents was spot on. We had the best partnership imaginable. I couldn’t have dreamed of having an easier time with my surrogate experience.
Even though we didn’t have any major issues, it was always comforting to know that Meryl was available, day or night, if I needed her for anything. I would (and have) recommend ARTparenting to anyone considering it, either surrogate or parent.
