What Does Matching Mean?
When you are matched with your intended parents, all of you are now ready to do the surrogacy process together. The surrogacy journey is a beautiful experience and is made even more incredible because you and the intended parents will go through it together. Surrogacy agencies will help connect you to your intended parents based on compatibility factors through the matching process. This can be a really exciting step and is a significant one!
What Is The Matching Process in Oklahoma?
You and your intended parents undergo rigorous screening such as medical evaluations, background checks, and house visits. This will determine if you’re emotionally and physically ready for your respective roles, becoming a surrogate mother or an intended parent.
After the screening process, both intended parents and you will go through interviews. These interviews are important because they help everyone share what they want to get out of the surrogacy process and what they want from the other party.
Based on compatibility factors, you and the intended parents will be matched up after determining each other’s ideas and values. This allows for a happier and smoother surrogacy process if everyone is on the same page from the beginning.
Compatibility looks different for everyone. For example, if you’re a surrogate mother, you might want to help specific people have children, such as an LGBTQ+ couple or an individual. Your desires might look completely different than another surrogate mother’s, and that’s okay!
Intended parents also might have desires that do or don’t match yours, such as wanting to be more or less involved in your pregnancy. Some might request their surrogate mothers to go on a specific diet or follow exercises, while others will leave it up to the wishes of their surrogate mothers.
