In short, no. Gestational surrogacy agreements are not legal in all 50 states. In the U.S., it is up to individual states to determine the legality of surrogacy agreements, which is why you will find that laws vary widely from one state to the next.
At Fertility SOURCE Companies, we recognize that transitioning to egg donation when you might have hoped to conceive without third-party reproduction, or even fertility treatment, is difficult. Unless you were already aware of a fertility issue or are LGBTQ, it’s unlikely that you ever expected to need an egg donor in order to have a baby.
Gestational surrogacy has become increasingly well-known in the past decade, particularly the past five years. Surrogacy arrangements now make common appearances across television shows and movies, and the legality of gay marriage in the U.S. in 2015 made legal issues that once created painful complications for LGBT couples and individuals null and void.
As a proud sponsor of Men Having Babies, Fertility SOURCE Companies is excited to attend the organization’s January 13-14 conference in San Francisco. We look forward to the event, and we hope you’ll consider joining us.
It’s no secret that the United States utilizes a for-profit healthcare system, which means that health insurance companies can pick and choose what they will and will not cover.
When it comes to telling your family and friends that you are infertile and you are going through the trials of IVF, most people are fairly open about the process and the struggles. However, there are many people that still pause on sharing this information, even for something that has become more commonplace.

Children need to know about the people who created them. This is a hard topic to discuss when the child is conceived through egg donation. It can be even more difficult to know when and how to explain this to you child and if it even should be brought up. But when children are trying to create an identity for themselves, they need to understand that the way in which they were conceived doesn’t make them less loved or different, but that it brought their family together.
