What is the purpose of the home visit?

This is not an inspection, no need to be nervous! You can get to know someone more quickly if you spend time with them in their home. Sitting in your living room, gives BFI the opportunity to explain the process and answer any questions that you or any of your support system have. In addition, when we present you to potential IPs we feel it is important to tell them we know you. We’ve met you and everyone who lives in your household. We know that their baby is growing in a safe home and we have seen it for ourselves.

How often will I meet with a program psychologist?

After you have been cleared, you will not meet with the program psychologist again until you are officially in contract with your Intended Parents. At this point, you will begin monthly meetings. Alternating months you will meet in a group setting with other gestational carriers in the program and the psychologist. In the opposite months you will meet with the psychologist alone. This allows you both the benefit of community with your fellow surrogates and the privacy to communicate with the psychologist one on one. During these meetings you will discuss any and all aspects of your journey.
