How to Find a Surrogate Mother in Pennsylvania
For many hopeful parents, finding a surrogate can seem daunting — how do you find a surrogate mother who is willing to provide such an amazing, selfless gift to your family?
If you are an intended parent, you have the option of finding a gestational carrier in Pennsylvania on your own or with the assistance of a surrogacy professional. But, did you know that you can receive the same kind of matching services with the legal professionals at Bierly & Rabuck that you would with a surrogacy matching agency?
That’s right — Bierly & Rabuck can provide all of the services and support you need to find a surrogate who can help you reach your goals. Our professionals will guide you through every step of finding a surrogate mother who shares your surrogacy preferences to give you the best chance of success moving forward with your family-building process.
So, what’s the process of finding a surrogate like when you work with Bierly & Rabuck?
Step 1: Create Your Surrogacy Plan.
When you first contact Bierly & Rabuck to start your surrogacy journey, a surrogacy professional will discuss your personal goals and preferences in detail. These details will be used to create your surrogacy plan, which will include things like how to find a surrogate for your specific circumstances. You and your professional will likely talk about aspects like a surrogate’s age, location and experience to create a “desired surrogate” profile. Your professional will use this profile to find a surrogate who meets your preferences.
Step 2: Let Bierly & Rabuck Identify Surrogacy Situations.
Bierly & Rabuck uses a variety of advertising avenues, including online and traditional print advertising, to find potential surrogacy situations in Pennsylvania and around the country. We also network with local professionals to help find a surrogate who meets your expectations. These prospective surrogates’ information will be presented to you for review.
But, how do we know these women meet surrogacy requirements and are safe to carry your child?
When intended parents like you contact Bierly & Rabuck, we get to know them through phone calls, in-person meetings, initial applications and forms that help us better understand each family, their surrogacy goals, and more. Likewise, prospective surrogates complete the same screening before being approved for the process. They will also undergo additional psychological and medical screening later in the process to ensure they are emotionally prepared and physically healthy enough for surrogacy.
Step 3: Get to Know Your Prospective Surrogate.
If you are interested in a surrogate’s profile, your surrogacy professional will take the next steps to make you comfortable with your match.
When Bierly & Rabuck finds a potential match who shares surrogacy goals and plans that are similar to yours, we will schedule a conference call with both parties to allow you to get to know each other better.
If your initial phone call goes well, Bierly & Rabuck will coordinate and attend a meal with both parties so you can meet in person and talk more in depth about your hopes for your surrogacy experience. After this meeting, you can decide whether you are comfortable moving forward with a prospective gestational carrier. If both parties are in agreement, you will officially be in a “match” and can begin the legal contract process.
Step 4: Finalize Your Match with a Surrogacy Contract.
Once you and your gestational carrier are ready to move forward, your professionals at Bierly & Rabuck will finalize your match with a legal contract. Unlike when you work with a surrogacy agency to find a surrogate, when you work with our program, our professionals can handle the legal aspects of this journey, too. You will not need to find another surrogacy professional after finding a surrogate mother in Pennsylvania; our legal team will stand ready to help you legally complete your match.
Finding a surrogate mother can be overwhelming on your own, but Bierly & Rabuck is committed to helping you find your ideal surrogacy situation. You will be forever connected to the woman you choose to work with, and we know that finding the right gestational carrier is one of the most important factors in creating a successful, enjoyable surrogacy experience.
