Our clinic requires prospective GCs to pass extensive and intensive medical, psychological, and legal clearances. In addition to interviews, background check, and psychological evaluation, the surrogate will undergo infectious disease screening, drug tests, physical exam, and FDA questionnaire. If the surrogate has a partner, the partner also has to complete infectious disease screening.
How are prospective gestational carriers screened?
