Requesting Your Medical Records

If you are interested in becoming an Omega Family Surrogate, it is a great time to ask for your medical records. Doctors’ offices are reopening as COVID-19 regulations soften. Now surrogacy candidates can call, email, or go to the office and request their records.

Conditions that Medical Records and Evaluation Reveal

The success of the surrogacy application process greatly depends on what medical records reveal. For example, some surrogates with gestational diabetes may move forward while others may not. This depends on whether or not she needs medication to control it. Each case is reviewed and individually evaluated. We encourage potential surrogates to contact us if they have any concerns about their health.

Invitro Fertilization Process

Taking hormones is part of the invitro-fertilization (IVF) process. They are important because they prepare the body to receive the embryo. The information in the medical records helps doctors prevent complications. It also helps medical professionals provide the right medication throughout the process.

If these conditions appear, it’s likely that the Invitro Fertilization (IVF) clinic will not allow the surrogate to move forward in the process. If this were to happen, the Intended Parents would have to undergo another matching process to find a suitable surrogate.

Why are medical records important to the Gestational Carrier Candidate?

Becoming a surrogate is a noble journey to help a family who wants to have children of their own. Medical records and screening provide the surrogate and her family peace of mind. She is ready both physically and emotionally to move forward. She now knows that she will be able to attend to her own family as she helps another one grow. Omega Family Global (OFG) understands the importance of extra money that compensated surrogacy can provide. However, OFG would never place the surrogate at risk. Therefore, a surrogate must be honest and open about what her medical screening and records state.

Why are medical records important to the Intended Parents?

Intended Parents (IPs) also have a great interest in the health of their surrogates. IPs have probably been unsuccessful at carrying a pregnancy due to one of the conditions that disqualify a surrogate candidate. Therefore, if the candidate’s medical records create any doubt that she could be successful at carrying their child, the IPs may want to choose another surrogate.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at We would love talking to you and helping you find out if surrogacy is right for you.
