Out of State Arrangements

In some US surrogate arrangements you may need to plan for an out of state birth. Usually this is due to unfavorable surrogacy laws in the surrogate’s state regarding who appears on the birth certificate and/or transfer of parentage.

If a natural birth, then being in the state where the delivery occurs ahead of time is key. Consider your surrogate’s past delivery history and obtain feedback from your surrogate’s obstetrician.

Complications with Delivery

How will your surrogate return home? fly home, drive, take the train?

Planning an out of state delivery can be overwhelming and stressful. It is important that all these issues are addressed prior to committing to a match where an out of state delivery may be required.
