Understanding Your Choices as a Surrogacy Candidate

As a surrogate candidate, you may hear a lot about the intended parent’s preferences, but it’s important to know you can make your own choices and have your own preferences, including thoughts on termination, the number of embryos to transfer, and communication. At IVF Origen Agency, our attentive team takes the time to understand your needs and expectations to find the right intended parents for you. 

IVF Origen Agency is a United States and Mexico-based surrogacy agency that helps surrogacy candidates throughout their journey, providing top-notch services and personalized care. We understand that being a surrogate is one of the most selfless and generous gifts a woman can give to intended parents, so we work hard to help you understand the choices you have throughout the process and give you a stress-free experience.

5 Factors to Consider as a Surrogacy Candidate

While we conduct a rigorous screening process to ensure you qualify for surrogacy, we also help you understand your choices as a surrogate so we can find the best match for you. Your preferences are just as important as the intended parents’, and they help us create a personalized experience for everyone involved. Some important factors to consider during your journey:

Agency or Independent

While you can attempt to handle your surrogacy journey on your own, working with a surrogacy agency helps make your experience more streamlined and less stressful. At IVF Origen, we guide you through every stage of the process and provide all the services you need for a positive experience. We offer access to highly-vetted intended parents, provide counseling, and help you manage the legal aspects of surrogacy to give you the protection and care you need.


Your views on termination play a significant role in the matching process. This deeply personal decision of when to terminate a pregnancy can be difficult to discuss, but ensuring everyone involved is on the same page is crucial. For example, some are comfortable terminating a pregnancy in a medical emergency or if the child has serious medical issues, while others only want to do so if the surrogate’s life is in danger.

Intended Parent Preferences

Just like intended parents have preferences for surrogates, surrogates can have preferences for the intended parents they match with. You may want to match with intended parents with similar backgrounds, beliefs, or values. Establishing trust and respect is vital in these arrangements, so we work hard to find a match that meets your needs.

Number of Embryos Transferred

As a surrogate candidate, you need to consider the number of embryos you are willing to transfer. Some surrogates choose one, while others choose two to increase the chance of twin pregnancy. However, a single embryo could still split and result in twins or more. 


Having a strong line of communication between a surrogate and intended parents is crucial, so we take note of your preferences, including the ideal method, frequency, and what is appropriate for conversation. This helps prevent misunderstandings and keeps everyone involved on the same page throughout the journey.
