Be a Surrogate Mother in Texas

Surrogacy in Texas

With favorable surrogacy law, excellent medical care and IVF centers, and proximity to Houston and Dallas, Texas is a great place for surrogates and intended parents.

Favorable Law

Texas is one of the few states that have kept up with the scientific advances of assisted reproduction, making it a surrogacy-friendly state.

In Texas, the law governs gestational surrogacy arrangements— making them valid and enforceable— and allows surrogates to receive compensation for their time and services. Establishing parentage is seamless as Texas surrogates relinquish their parental rights before the baby is even born. Further, intended parents are recognized as the child’s legal parents upon his or her birth certificate. The statute eliminates the need post-birth legal proceedings, such as a post-birth order or second-parent adoption. This generally means surrogates won’t ever appear in court. Even in cases where a post-birth action is warranted (i.e., intended parents citizenship needs), the surrogates won’t need to appear in court.

Medical Coverage and Care

With close proximity to cities like Dallas, Houston, and Austin, Texas surrogates have access to quality care at some of the world’s best medical centers, according to U.S. News & World Report's Top-Ranked Hospitals for Gynecology. Texas surrogates mothers whose insurance companies don’t cover maternity costs are provided with optimal medical coverage to the pregnancy and delivery by the intended parents. Texas surrogates who do have insurance coverage are typically paid a higher fee.

Benefits for Surrogates in Texas

The first payment is the $350 Expedited Screening Bonus. You are eligible to receive $350 if we receive all required paperwork (including previous Prenatal and Delivery records), medical pre-approval AND you and your primary support person complete your Social Work Screening within 3 weeks of submitting your application. In order to receive this bonus, you must match with intended parents in our program. Of note, this amount is deducted from your base fee, but will be deposited shortly after matching, prior to receiving any other surrogacy payments. Then you receive a $500 advance after you complete your medical screening. Please note, these two payments are deducted from your base fee.
