Explore our website to find out how our surrogacy program works — including the financial considerations, the basic qualifications and how to get started. Please feel free to contact us and get your questions answered about our surrogacy program.
A gestational surrogate mother (also known as a gestational carrier) carries a child conceived through in-vitro fertilization (IVF) using the eggs from an egg donor or the intended mother. The child will not be genetically related to the gestational surrogate.
Here are just a few of the requirements for becoming a surrogate in West Virginia:
• 21 to 45 years old
• the mother of one or more children
• financially stable
• healthy with a body mass index (BMI) less than 34
Our founder, Meryl B. Rosenberg, Esq., has over 23 years of experience matching and guiding hundreds of surrogates and intended parents. She understands how truly personal and life-changing the surrogacy process is for the gestational carriers and intended parents alike. Integrity, expertise and caring are ARTparenting’s hallmarks.
As part of our program, Meryl meets with each prospective surrogate. Our surrogates are carefully consulted about who they would like to work with — every match with the intended parents is a partnership and a mutual decision. We make sure every surrogate is fully supported throughout the process.
To qualify, it is important that you are already financially stable to minimize any stress for you or your family. The compensation for your time and effort is based on a number of personal factors. For more information, please see Fees and Expenses for Gestational Surrogates, or contact us directly for specific details.
Becoming a surrogate requires a capable and nurturing woman who knows that raising a child is one life’s greatest joys. The desire to share that joy with another family is what motivates our surrogates and is what inspires our work at ARTparenting. For more thoughts about making your decision, you may find it helpful to read our article, “Becoming a Surrogate Mother: Is it Right for Me?”
