FAQ

Is Nodal an agency?

No. Nodal is a matching platform that connects Nodal qualified gestational carriers and intended parents together.

Gestational carriers, intended parents, surrogacy agencies, and ART attorneys.

Does it cost me anything to join the Nodal Network as a Gestational Carrier?

Joining Nodal as a gestational carrier is free! However, all GCs must pass our Nodal screening before becoming a member of our Network.

What is gestational surrogacy?

Gestational surrogacy is a form of third-party reproduction in which a consenting individual carries a pregnancy for the intended parent(s). There is no biological relation between the carrier and the baby.

Is the surrogate biologically related to the baby?

No. The carrier has NO biological relation to the child. An embryo created from gametes from the intended parent(s) or donors is transferred to the gestational carrier via in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Is surrogacy legal in all US states?

Surrogacy is legal in all states with the exception of Nebraska, Louisiana, and Michigan.

Why choose Nodal as a GC?
