Definition of a surrogate mother at WCOB

The surrogacy journey is a life-altering experience – both to the Intended Parents (IPs) and, most importantly, to the courageous, caring, and selfless surrogate mothers.
However, for all the joys that lay ahead for the IPs after a successful surrogacy arrangement, the groundwork is laid way before the IPs even match with their ideal surrogate mother.

Interview with a surrogate mother


Surrogate mom at WCOB is invaluable

Here at the World Centre of Baby, we understand the importance of surrogate mothers in the surrogacy journey. That’s why, as an international agency, we ensure a surrogate mother is not only vetted, medically screened, and taken care of in the best way possible for a successful gestation period.)


Surrogate mother process

We know our surrogate carriers are the key to the success WCOB has had turning most Intended Parent’s frustrations into lifelong joys. And as such, becoming a surrogate mother at WCOB means being medically fit –both physically and mentally – among other requirements.

Here are the steps are taken when selecting a surrogate woman:


Step 1: Application

This is where a prospective surrogate willing to be part of our family fills a form, providing their number, email, and story behind deciding to be a sergeant mom.

Step 2: Free Consultation

Once we’ve received the application, one of our managers consults the prospective surrogate. The manager will gather more detailed information from the would-be surrogate. Besides, the consultant helps them understand what the surrogate mother process involves to ensure they are 10000% willing to be part of our family.

Step 3: Physical examinations and medical screening

This involves collecting detailed information about the potential surrogate mum’s health history, family, among other medical qualifications. Here they will meet with fertility specialists to ensure they are fit for surrogacy.

We also carry out mental health evaluations to ensure the surrogate mom is psychologically ready for surrogacy.

We ensure all of our surrogate mothers:

  • Have an Rh-positive blood type – this helps avoid Rhesus factor problems.
  • Have at least one healthy biological child and a history of at least one successful and uncomplicated pregnancy
  • Do not have a history of drug use – Non-smoker or drinker and other drugs.
  • Are screened for STDs and other viruses that can affect fertility.
  • Are between 18-36 years old.


Step 4: Background Checks

At this stage, we ask the potential surrogate mom for consent to multiple background checks, such as standard criminal record checks. Our surrogate mothers have no criminal history.
Once they meet all of our requirements, we profile the surrogate mom to allow for an easier matchup with Intended Parents.

Step 5: Meeting Potential IPs

After a surrogate mom is part of our family, they are now available to meet with Intend Parents via Skype. This is the happy moment for all the IPs who have always wondered, ‘Can I get a surrogate mother?’

Frequently Asked Questions about Surrogate Woman

How does the surrogate woman conceive the baby?

Once we successfully match Intended Parents with a surrogate mother and all the legal procedures are met, we go ahead with the IVF procedure. This involves carrying out hormonal stimulation on the surrogate to allow for the cultivation of embryos and their attachment to her uterine cavity.

Do you take care of the surrogate mother during pregnancy?

Yes, we will perform multiple medical examinations throughout the gestation period to ensure the success of the process. There will be ultrasounds every month and screenings for genetic pathologies on weeks 12 and 16.

Besides, we assign our surrogate mothers to psychologists to help them throughout this emotionally draining process. However, we understand that each surrogate mother has their unique approach to a successful pregnancy – having been through one already – hence we let them go through the process as naturally as possible.

Can a surrogate mother refuse to give the child?

No, all our surrogate moms sign a notarized contract with the Intended Parents before the start of the IVF procedure, indicating that they do not have any legal rights to the newborn.
