Medical Tourism


Choosing the right surrogate is a crucial step in the surrogacy journey. It requires careful consideration and meticulous scrutiny. The Surrogacy Institute in Medellín, Colombia is committed to facilitating this process through our thorough screening and matching services. This article provides a detailed overview of our surrogate selection process.

Understanding Surrogacy

Before delving into the surrogate selection process, it is essential to understand what surrogacy entails. Surrogacy is a process where a woman (the surrogate) agrees to carry a pregnancy for someone else (the intended parents) who cannot carry a pregnancy themselves. This process requires a high level of commitment and responsibility from the surrogate, making the selection process incredibly important.

Initial Application of Potential Surrogates

Potential surrogates in Medellín reach out to us through an application process. In the application, they provide information about their background, medical history, lifestyle, and motivations to become a surrogate. The Surrogacy Institute reviews these applications meticulously to ensure only suitable candidates move forward in the process.

In-depth Screening of Potential Surrogates

Our screening process is designed to ensure that potential surrogates are physically, mentally, and emotionally capable of taking on the role. This process includes:

Medical Screening

The medical screening involves a thorough physical examination and fertility assessment by our partner fertility clinics, InSer – Instituto de Fertilidad Humana and CEFRA - Centro de Fertilidad y Reproducción Asistida. The clinics conduct tests to evaluate the surrogate’s overall health and reproductive health specifically.

Psychological Evaluation

A comprehensive psychological evaluation is carried out to assess the mental and emotional stability of the potential surrogate. Our in-house psychologists conduct interviews and administer psychological tests to determine if the surrogate can handle the emotional aspects of surrogacy.

Background Check

A detailed background check is conducted to ensure the surrogate has no criminal record and to confirm the details provided in the initial application. This process is essential in establishing trust between the intended parents and the surrogate.

Matching Intended Parents with Surrogates

Once the potential surrogates have successfully passed the screening process, the matching process begins. We strive to match intended parents with surrogates based on various factors including lifestyle, personality, surrogacy expectations, and more. The intended parents are given detailed profiles of the potential surrogates to aid them in making their choice.

Meet and Greet

Upon identifying a potential match, a 'meet and greet' is organized. This meeting allows intended parents and the surrogate to interact directly, ask questions, and establish a connection. The Surrogacy Institute facilitates these meetings, ensuring a comfortable and positive environment.

Legal Contract and Agreement

After the intended parents and surrogate agree to proceed, our in-house legal team steps in. They help draft the surrogacy agreement, ensuring all parties' rights and responsibilities are clearly defined and legally protected.

After the Match

Once the surrogate has been selected, the medical process begins. This involves the preparation of the surrogate's body for the embryo transfer and the subsequent pregnancy. Our team at The Surrogacy Institute, in collaboration with our partner fertility clinics, guides all parties through this process.

In conclusion, the surrogate selection process at The Surrogacy Institute is thorough, ensuring only the most suitable candidates are chosen. This comprehensive approach guarantees that both the surrogate and the intended parents embark on this surrogacy journey with complete clarity and understanding.
