GSHC Weight Loss Incentive Program

Author: GSHC Surrogacy


Weight Loss Incentive

As you’ve probably heard, a surrogate’s BMI is an important factor for whether she will be accepted by an agency, and ultimately a fertility clinic. Different clinics/doctors have varying requirements, but most follow the ASRM guideline of a BMI under 30.

If you’ve been wanting to be a surrogate and meet all of the other requirements except your BMI, GSHC Surrogacy Agency would like to encourage you to work on your weight so that you will qualify. We offer a weight loss program with financial incentives, to help you on your weight loss journey and ultimately to reach your goal of becoming a surrogate! Here are the steps to complete if you’d like to take part:

1. Application

Fill out our application and complete the intake process (medical records release, intake call, providing all documents).

2. Provide Proof of Current Weight

Visit your primary care doctor, OB/GYN, or a local Minute Clinic to obtain an official BMI check, and send to your intake manager.

3. Work on Weight Loss

Begin working on your diet and exercise plan. Keep track of your weight, stay in contact with your Intake Manager, and provide an update of your weight each week to hold yourself accountable and help you stay on track!

4. Final BMI Re-check

Once you achieve your goal weight, return to your PCP, OB/GYN or Minute Clinic for a final BMI re-check. Once you receive it, we can begin showing your profile to Intended Parents! Once you are matched and pass medical screening, you will receive your cash incentive payment!

Payment Amounts for Weight Loss

The following amounts will be paid to potential surrogates who lose the required amount of weight to qualify for surrogacy based on ASRM guidelines:

Lose 15-29lbs: $500
Lose 30-39lbs: $750
Lose 40+lbs: $1,000

Paid in full after receiving medical clearance!
