Surrogacy FAQs for Intended Parents

Become a Surrogate in Nevada
The risks of surrogacy are similar to the risks of a regular pregnancy; thankfully, because of our rigorous screening protocols and surrogate requirements, adverse physical, mental, or emotional effects of surrogacy are uncommon. More frequently, surrogates talk about how positive the experience was for them, and many plan to be surrogates again in the future.
Intended parents may be single parents, people with infertility, same-sex couples, people with hereditary issues they don't want to pass on to their children, and anyone who cannot safely carry a pregnancy to term.
Gestational surrogates get pregnant via in-vitro fertilization (IVF), a procedure in which fertility specialists create an embryo in the lab, then transfer it to the surrogate's uterus. The embryo is generally created using eggs and sperm from the intended parents, but in some cases may be created using donor eggs and/or sperm.
