Intended Parents Common Questions
What is a gestational carrier?
Gestational carriers are women who choose to carry a pregnancy for those who cannot carry a pregnancy to term without help, there is no genetic connection on the part of the surrogate.
Can the surrogate acquire legal custody to the child?
If the intended parents fulfill their contractual obligations, it would be virtually impossible for a gestational carrier to acquire legal custody after the birth. The surrogate has no genetic relation to the child. In states where a pre-birth order can be obtained, the intended parents appear on the original birth certificate.
Is surrogacy legal everywhere?
A Host of Possibilities will work with intended parents from all US states and several countries overseas. However, since statutes and case law are different in every state, surrogates must reside and deliver in a state where surrogacy is legally accepted.
Where do the medical procedures take place?
The embryo transfer takes place at the fertility clinic where the intended parents have established care. If the surrogate does not live in the same location as the fertility clinic, she will travel for medical clearance and embryo transfer. All other appointments will be set up locally.
I've heard most medical insurance plans have a surrogacy exclusion, can our surrogate get insurance?
If your surrogate’s medical insurance plan has an exclusion, we work with her and an insurance broker to get a policy in place that will cover the pregnancy.
