For Intended Parents
In order to provide the highest level of service, we have case managers throughout the US. We will work closely with your clinic to assist with any appointments and travel arrangements that may be necessary. We believe that in order to assist intended parents and gestational surrogates through this journey, we must have the knowledge and understanding of every aspect of the surrogacy process. Many of our case managers are experienced surrogates themselves that are enthusiastic about helping you through your journey, from finding a match to the day your baby is born. We will make sure you and your gestational surrogate are given the best available education, guidance and support. Our surrogacy program staff is accessible twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays. Additionally, we hold mandatory, monthly surrogate support group meetings offering support from other surrogates and The Surrogacy Source staff that have experienced the journey you are about to embark upon. We look forward to helping you and your surrogate bond to create a wonderful relationship during this exciting time.
