3 Ways to Know if You’re Ready to Become a Surrogate in Nevada

Do you have a passion to help others? Do you enjoy being pregnant? Do you feel called to help a deserving family have the family they’ve always wanted? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re on your way to figuring out if you’re ready to become a surrogate in Nevada.

Choosing to become a surrogate for intended parent(s) is a life-changing decision, and not one to be taken lightly. It’s best to do your research and understand all that becoming a surrogate entails before agreeing to anything. That’s where Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada comes in. We are here to answer the question you’ve been asking yourself: How do I really know if I’m ready to be a surrogate?

  • Do You Meet the Requirements to be a Surrogate?

Every surrogacy agency is different and has their own requirements for prospective women who wish to become surrogate mothers. So, it’s important to determine whether or not you live in a surrogacy-friendly state and what those requirements may include. In the state of Nevada, you must meet the following qualifications:

  • Be between 21-39 years of age
  • Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) range of 18-31
  • Have no new tattoos, piercings or blood transfusions within the past 12 months
  • Have a history of successful pregnancy and be parenting at least one child
  • Be a non-smoker and free of any drug or alcohol abuse
  • Not be on medication that may interfere or harm the pregnancy
  • Not be receiving any public assistance (i.e. Medicaid, food stamps, etc.)

To work with our surrogacy agency specifically, other requirements may include, but are not limited to: background and criminal record check, psychological evaluation, and physical examination. While this may seem like a lot, all of these are in place to protect you and the intended parents in the surrogacy journey. 

  • Do You Have a Strong Support System as a Surrogate?

Becoming a surrogate can be a lot of emotional and physical work. So, it’s important to have a strong support system who can be there for you in both the good times and bad. This can be close friends, family members or your partner or spouse. Those you know you can trust and rely on.

If you don’t have a support system in place, our surrogacy agency can act as one. Your surrogacy specialist will walk with you every step of the way, and you can always make an appointment with our counselors for emotional support. Your health — physical, mental and emotional — and well-being is important to us. We want to make sure that you feel supported, as that helps our surrogacy journey go more smoothly and positively. 

  • Are You Ready to Help Intended Parents’ Dreams Come True?

As aforementioned, choosing to become a surrogate is a life-changing decision, yet it will also be more of the most rewarding experiences you can have. Not only will you be helping create a family, but you will also be making intended parents’ dreams come true. It’s through your sacrifice and love that they are able to have become parents and have the child they wouldn’t otherwise be able to. 

What’s more, through you and the IVF process, they will share a biological connection with him or her. To many intended parents, this is huge and a crucial reason why they chose to pursue gestational surrogacy.
