Become a Gestational Carrier
Thank you for your interest in becoming a gestational carrier in North Carolina. Gestational surrogacy is quickly becoming a popular and requested method of third-party reproduction in the Raleigh-Durham area and beyond. As a gestational carrier, you partner with couples or an intended parent battling infertility whom desire a genetic child.
What You Need to Know
Gestational surrogacy allows you to carry a child for a woman that cannot get pregnant or who cannot carry a pregnancy to term due to medical conditions. It involves a legally binding agreement between you and the intended couple or parent. It is very common for the intended parents to be involved with you throughout the pregnancy as well as attend the birth.
Help A Family Grow
There are several reasons to become a gestational carrier. While most gestational surrogates receive compensation, the most compelling reason is helping bring the gift of a child to a couple or intended parent who desires to grow their family. Choosing to become a gestational carrier is a major commitment and requires thoughtful consideration.

- you have had at least one successful pregnancy
- you do not have any medical conditions that could interfere with the pregnancy
- you are a non-smoker
- you are willing to take prenatal care measures
