Once we feel we have a good match for both the family and carrier, we will contact the family and set up an id and password to view the Gestational Carriers.

All of our carriers and spouses have passed a criminal background check, MMPI or PAI test, and interview with a Psychologist before being added to our database.

Once a family has reviewed a carrier’s profile, the family can request a conference call with the carrier that RAI facilitates. At this time, the family can ask any additional questions they may have. When the conference call is scheduled, the family will authorize a Letter of Agreement outlining the process with RAI.
