If you live in Texas and are curious about becoming a surrogate, read on and see how surrogacy works in our great state of Texas. The process does vary between states. Not only is surrogacy a legal process, but it is also an emotional and physical process. Make sure to educate yourself, your spouse or partner, and surrounding support system about surrogacy.  If you are considering surrogacy and live in Texas, you will have only one option: gestational surrogacy. This is where the embryo is created in a fertility clinic using an egg and sperm from the intended parents (or donor) then transferred to the surrogate’s uterus through the process of IVF.  It helps to work with an experienced surrogacy agency such as Shared Conception. We carefully screen and match both intended parents and surrogates with our professional matching process. Intended parents and surrogates create a profile that potential surrogates can review. Then, Shared Conception recommends surrogates to intended parents based on similar interests, likes, experiences and views. Both parties meet and if they like each other, a match is created! After a match, a legal contract is created with your selected lawyer who specializes in surrogacy. Shared Conception also provides referrals for legal representation. A lawyer will work with you to draft a contract covering gestational agreements and the potential events that could occur in your journey. Don’t be overwhelmed – these contracts serve as a legal guide for both the intended parents and surrogates to prevent any misunderstandings. In Texas, when a surrogate agrees to a legal contract, it’s acknowledgement that she is not the biological or legal parent of the child she is carrying and has no rights to the child after birth.  Help create a family with Shared Conception.
