Want to become a surrogate in California? You’re in luck – it’s one of the best states in the country for the process. That’s because while it’s not legal everywhere in the country, California law allows both gestational and traditional surrogacy. And the state has a very wide array of fertility clinics from which to choose.
That means that no matter what your preference is, you can probably find it in California. Do you want the intended parents to be Catholic? Jewish? Heterosexual? Gay? Perhaps you want them to be well-off, or professionals.
The number of clinics, spread across the state, also makes it very easy to find one that’s convenient to your location and your schedule. In California, your preferences as a surrogate can almost certainly be met.
