A candidate for Gestational surrogacy is a person who is comfortable and happy about being pregnant and genuinely wants to help someone build a family through her. Ideally, she should be between 21 & 44 years old and have given birth in the past.
She should have support from her husband and her immediate family about this decision. Her previous pregnancies should be normally healthy.
As a candidate for surrogacy, you must be a non-smoker, without any medical or criminal issues, and with a regular BMI or body mass index. You must as well be mentally and physically prepared to undergo the required tests and evaluations.
Understanding Gestational Surrogacy
A Gestational surrogate mother is one who carries a baby that is conceived through IVF. In this case, the egg is of the intended mother & the sperm is that of the intended father or a sperm donor. As a gestational surrogate, you would not be genetically related to the child.

4. The Ideal Match
At Eva Infertility Clinic, Dr. Shivani Bhutani makes it a point to accommodate the surrogates’ wishes in every way. Surrogacy is like a relationship that is unique and based on the personal choices and individualistic concerns of everyone involved in this relationship. We always go ahead when the match is perfect which may happen quickly or take some time.
Interaction With Intended Parents
After the intended parents have had a chance to discover relevant details about you, your inclinations, and your backdrop, we arrange a meeting between you and your chosen couple. It gives everyone an opportunity to get familiarized, to ask questions of each other, and to learn more about the features of the entire process moving forward.
The Surrogacy Contract
Gestational surrogacy entails legal as well as medical arrangements, requiring a written agreement or contract that inscribes the responsibilities, roles, and duties of each personn involved.
Unless you are comfortable and satisfied with outlined obligations, no papers need to be signed. You will not be asked to sign anything until you are comfortable with the obligations and expectations. All the documentation costs are borne by the intended parents. After the papers are signed, you proceed to the next medical phase.
Understand the Time Commitment
The surrogacy procedure is not very time-consuming, but make sure it aligns with your other goals in life. You will be required to attend the clinic for monitoring after the embryo transfer and implantation.
You would also need a time commitment from your Support Person or family while you go for the tests and procedures.
