    What should I look for in a surrogate?

    • Is the surrogate in good physical and mental health?
    • Has she carried and delivered at least one child?
    • Has the surrogate had pregnancies that were all free of complications and were full-term?
    • Is the surrogate less than 43 years of age (some clinics will accept older woman in certain circumstances; others have younger age cut-offs)
    • Is she in a stable living situation?
    • Does she smoke or abuse alcohol?
