Becoming a surrogate is one of the most generous things that a woman can do for an individual or couple who is unable to create or grow their family without the help of someone else. Although surrogacy is not a quick and easy process, the vast majority of surrogates find it massively rewarding and love being able to share the joy of having a child with someone who cannot carry a pregnancy on their own. This quick guide will help you learn more about what the process entails and whether or not it’s right for you.
There are many decisions to work through during a surrogacy journey and one common question we receive from intended parents is about the location of your surrogate. The options include a surrogate who resides local to the fertility clinic or out-of-area.
For LGBT couples who want to start a family, third-party reproduction often plays an essential role in turning that dream into a reality. Same-sex male and female couples each face unique challenges when it comes to biologically creating a child, which is what makes third-party reproduction necessary.
There are many reasons why people seek out a gestational surrogate. One of the most common reasons is when a woman is dealing with an infertility issue. For individuals and couples who are unable to conceive, surrogacy can help them create the family that they desire.

COVID – 19 Update
Dear Valued Intended Parents, Gestational Carriers, and Egg Donors,
As the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) spreads around the world and throughout the U.S., Fertility SOURCE Companies is actively monitoring the restrictions and guidelines that the CDC and our government have put in place to continually monitor the safety, health and wellbeing of our clients and staff.
For many couples and individuals, gestational surrogacy provides an avenue in which their family-building dreams can become a reality. Surrogacy can be used for several scenarios, including:
Becoming a surrogate is one of the most meaningful things that a woman can do for fertility-challenged and LGBT+ people who are looking to start or grow their families. Every year, hundreds of babies are born with the help of a surrogate. If you’re thinking about becoming a surrogate, you likely have a lot of questions about the process, including whether you would be eligible.
As we enter a new year, taking stock of the past year’s ups and downs and preparing for a fresh start, some couples and individuals may be thinking of growing their family through third-party reproductive services — whether through egg donation, embryo donation, surrogacy, or sperm donation.
If you’re considering becoming a surrogate to help hopeful parents grow their families, you probably have a lot of questions about how to get started—and whether you’re a good candidate for surrogacy in the first place.
There have been improvements in conversations about infertility, egg donation, and surrogacy, but we still have a long way to go. In an ideal world, people working through fertility issues or choosing egg donation and/or surrogacy would be able to do so free from the stress of being judged or from ignorance.
