It is our mission to provide exceptional service throughout the surrogacy process. We ensure that you have legal representation, medical care, and hands-on support for the entire surrogacy process.
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN BEING AN INTENDED PARENT?
Intended parents are, in many cases, people who have tried for years to have a biological child, either naturally or through the in vitro process or people who cannot have biological children on their own, such as same-sex couples. We work with individuals and families who need the help of a gestational carrier and/or a genetic donor to create their family.

What is the difference between traditional and gestational surrogacy?
The difference between traditional surrogacy and gestational surrogacy is in whose egg is used. In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate’s egg is used, so she’s the biological mother of the baby. In gestational surrogacy, the egg comes from an intended mother or a donor, so the surrogate is not biologically related to the baby.
Traditional surrogacy is rare today, because there are serious legal and emotional risks associated with the surrogate being the biological mother of the baby. Very few professionals will complete traditional surrogacies. Instead, gestational surrogacy is what is commonplace and often preferred by all involved.
