We at Fairfax Surrogacy are glad you have found us. We understand that you have likely experienced difficult trials in growing your family up to this point. While each person on this journey will have a unique experience, we know that most have not had a flawless one, whether physically, mentally, emotionally, or all. Therefore, we empathize with you for the challenges you may have experienced on this path thus far.
We also applaud you for seeking new options, new resources, and new possibilities. Our entire staff at Fairfax Surrogacy is ready to offer insight, resources, and guidance along this path to parenthood.
While we hold all of our Fairfax Surrogacy clients in high regard, we also hold them to high standards. And that includes our surrogates. Our experience has provided us with a set of requirements for surrogates that produce the best results for all involved, with a priority of protecting the baby and surrogate’s health and safety.
There are two options when it comes to finding a surrogate/gestational carrier. Some choose to do the process independently, finding a willing surrogate on their own. At Fairfax Surrogacy, we support whatever your journey entails but want you to know the benefits of having an agency like us to help with that process. Our agency’s experience working through vital and personal topics related to surrogacy is invaluable. However, the support, legal process, and protection can become a handful on intended parents. That is where we come into play.
Our surrogates are women who have completed their own families but have more to give. They want to help change the lives of others through the gift of assisting them in building their families. In the process, which is also a journey for surrogates, their own lives are also enriched. Our pre-screening process helps safeguard all involved to ensure this is the right match for all.
While it can vary from agency to agency, the following are the biggest requirements needed to become a surrogate:
At Fairfax Surrogacy, we understand the financial complexities that come with the surrogacy journey. To simplify this process and provide peace of mind to our intended parents, we offer fixed cost packages for surrogacy.
These comprehensive packages ensure that there are no hidden fees or unexpected expenses along the way.
Every package includes professional fees covering agency, attorney, counselor, insurance review, and escrow management. Additionally, they encompass surrogate pre-screening, compensation, and all related expenses.
Even variable expenses, such as outside monitoring, travel, and insurance, are covered*.
By opting for our fixed cost surrogacy packages, parents can focus on the joyous journey ahead, knowing that the financial aspects are transparent and well-managed.
* Packages include ACA surrogacy-friendly policy or IFI Maternity Plan, not to exceed $22,000 for Essential package, and $25,000 for Premium package. If intended parents prefer a Lloyd’s of London policy, an additional fee will apply.

We also value financial transparency. We know that finances can be a challenging part of the journey on your end, so we are consistently open with surrogates about their exact expectations regarding compensation right from the start.
Our job is to help make this easier on you by handling the purchasing of insurances (if needed), staying on top of any balance statements, and ensuring that surrogates and providers are compensated on time as agreed upon, all pregnancy-related expenses. We do this by offering our unique and streamlined, all-inclusive packages.
For many, surrogacy may not be how they had first envisioned growing their family. For some, it may be the only option they have. Wherever you fall in this spectrum, surrogacy is a life-giving option that moves beyond family-building. It’s an experience that represents the opportunity to become part of a partnership that will inevitably change lives forever.
Surrogacy is a process and a partnership built on communication and trust. Naturally, anyone who is considering surrogacy will have lots of questions. We’re here to answer all of those questions to help reduce this often overwhelming process. Here’s a list of some of the questions we often hear from future intended parents.
Fairfax Surrogacy specializes in gestational surrogacy. Gestational surrogates, or gestational carriers, are undoubtedly the most popular option for couples seeking to grow their family through surrogacy. What is unique about gestational surrogacy is that thanks to modern technology, the surrogate can carry a fetus in her own womb and not share any genetics with the baby. This is because the gestational surrogate will either carry the fetus through the use of donor eggs or the intended mother’s eggs.
On the other hand, traditional surrogacy involves the surrogate carrying the fetus and using her own eggs. She is biologically related to the child she gives birth to as a result. While the intention of traditional surrogacy is to place the child with the intended parent(s) after birth, some surrogates may feel a biological connection that is so strong, it causes legal and medical concerns once the baby is born. With that in mind, if you are still interested in traditional surrogacy, we advise that you please proceed with tremendous caution.
To put it simply, surrogacy can be expensive. For instance, in the United States, the surrogacy process may cost between $100,000 and $150,000. However, there are many ways to make surrogacy more affordable. Several financing options are available that you and your partner can compare to determine what will work best for you and your financial situation. What sets us apart from other surrogacy agencies is that we actively try to help reduce any fear and uncertainty surrounding potential costs by offering an all-inclusive flat fee.

We know this is an exciting time that sometimes warrants meticulous scheduling and planning, but, unfortunately, it’s difficult to pinpoint how long the surrogacy process will be for you. It’s different for every family. There are many factors that must be considered, so there is no fixed timeline for when you can expect each stage of the process to be completed. Usually, however, it’s a good idea to set a date range of 15-18 months from when you first sign up with us to when you have a child.
This period could be shorter or longer, though, depending on your specific situation, and some steps of the process may be completed faster than others. Regardless, we are here for you throughout your entire journey. We strive to make this experience as clear and transparent as possible. Here are the big milestone steps we will help guide you through.
Typically, these are the most important requirements that are needed to become a gestational surrogate:
