The Surrogacy Process is the set of steps to become a Surrogate with Omega Family Global.
The Surrogacy Process involves ten simple steps. It is important for a woman interested in it to understand them so she can determine if surrogacy is right for her. The Omega Family team is prepared to answer any questions she may have through email, social media, texting, and/or phone calls.
10 Steps of the Omega Surrogacy Process
Step 1: Prequalification
The applicant answers a questionnaire with 12 questions. If she qualifies, the Omega recruitment team will contact her.
Step 2: Orientation call
The recruitment team will begin the orientation calls to learn more about the applicant and qualify her to move forward.
Step 3: Comprehensive questionnaire
This questionnaire has more than 100 questions that will help the Recruitment Team determine if a woman is ready to become an Omega Family Surrogate or not. If she qualifies the Recruitment Team will create her Surrogate Profile.
Step 4: Preparation for matching
The Recruitment Team will share her profile with Intended Parents.
Step 5: Psychological screening
OFG requires psychological screening for surrogates who have profiles. The screening occurs during the time the Recruitment Team is sharing the profile with Intended Parents.
Step 6: Matching session
When Intended Parents and their surrogate agree to work together, they have already discussed many details regarding how their communication and relationship will develop. This session is critical because it sets the boundaries that will allow them both to be comfortable throughout the journey.
Step 7: Legal arrangements
Chosen legal teams prepare the Gestational Surrogacy Agreement (GSA) and the Trust Fund through legal arrangements. The surrogate and the Intended Parents each have their own legal counsel. Once the surrogate and Intended Parents sign, the legal team will clear them to move forward.
Step 8: Getting pregnant
The Intended Parents provide their embryos to an Invitro-fertilization (IVF) center. A doctor will perform an embryo transfer when he or she implants the IP’s embryo into the surrogate’s uterus. From then on, the surrogate will hopefully be able to carry the baby to full term without complications.
Step 9: Delivery
The baby’s birth is the most exciting part of the Surrogacy Journey for both the surrogate and IPs.
Step 10: Presenting the baby to the Intended Parents
The Intended Parents are now parents to their baby! Their family has been extended, thanks to the surrogate and the Surrogacy Journey.
Omega Surrogacy Process Teams
Omega Recruitment Team: This team begins to work with those women who have answered the 12-question questionnaire and are eligible to continue. They guide the applicant towards obtaining all the information needed to make sure that the applicant is choosing surrogacy for all the right reasons.
Omega Matching Team: This is when the Intended Parents are matched with the Surrogate. This process is handled by the Omega Family Surrogates team, when they decide who could go well with whom, and then interviews are held, and matches are made.

Omega Family Surrogates share their experiences in this video about what it is like to be a Surrogate.
What sets Omega Family Global apart from other surrogacy agencies in the United States is the personalized support each surrogate receives. Omega assists surrogates through in-person events such as Surrogate Dinners and family activities like Spring Fling, intimate social media involvement, plus as much individual attention as the gestational carrier needs. Would a surrogate like to have someone go with her to an appointment, help her communicate with her IPs, or be in touch with her fellow surrogates? OFG teams come together to provide the best solutions possible to any request that comes their way.
Surrogate Dinners where Surrogates get together to share their experiences and bond as women who chose Surrogacy as a way to make a difference in the lives of the Intended Parents they serve.
Family Events such as the Spring Fling celebrated in May of 2019, where Surrogates and their families were invited to mingle and get to know each other.
Omega Holiday Parties, where once a year the Omega Family community is invited to share in holiday festivities and strengthen bonds that have been created thanks to surrogacy.
