BECOME A SURROGATE

Congratulations on taking these first steps to assisting a hopeful family! There is no typical timeline for Intended Parents to connect with a Surrogate. In some cases, it can take 5 years before Intended Parents finally find 

someone like you to help them.

WHAT IS SURROGACY?

Gestational Surrogacy is a process in which the Surrogate is not related to the child she is carrying; it is the most common type of Surrogacy today. An embryo is created using in vitro Fertilization (IVF), using the eggs and sperm of the Intended Parent or a Donor, and then transferred into the Surrogate. 

Modern science has enabled families like single parents, struggling with infertility, cancer survivors and those from the LGBTQ+ community to grow their families and be involved from conception all the way until  the birth of their child.

WHO DO SURROGATES

HELP?

A person waiting to become a parent with the help of a Surrogate is called an “Intended Parent”.

Families may choose this path to parenthood for a variety of reasons. Most commonly, Intended  Parents are:  

 

  • People who have struggled with infertility. 

  • Single parents.

  • Same-sex couples.

  • Cancer Survivors.

  •  Anyone who is unable to safely carry a baby to term.  

 

"While I was pregnant, Nici was an excellent support person. Every time I had a question or concern she was there for me. It didn't matter the time of day, I knew I could call her. There were so many times I needed her and she was there for me emotionally as well as physically whether it be at appointments or just to meet up for coffee. I still go to her for advice". - C
