Gestational surrogacy is an arrangement in which a woman carries a pregnancy for another person or couple. The gestational carrier undergoes the transfer of an embryo created through in vitro fertilization using the egg and sperm of the intended parent(s) and/or a donor. The gestational carrier herself does not contribute eggs to the creation of the embryos and therefore is not genetically related to the child.
Choosing a Surrogate
Patients may identify their own surrogate, a friend or relative, or they may choose to use an agency to find the right surrogate. We have over two decades of experience working with top third party agencies as well as known surrogates.
The Laws governing gestational surrogacy vary by county, state, and country. Our network of highly qualified legal experts will help educate you about the legal options and considerations that are unique to your circumstances.
Physical and Mental Wellness
Our team will coordinate all necessary medical screening and testing as mandated by The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) and American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). We will complete a thorough medical and psychological evaluation of each prospective gestational surrogate to ensure an appropriate match.
There are many contributing factors that affect the cost of surrogacy. We provide you the resources to understand the total expected costs involved in your surrogacy journey and reliable experts to guide you throughout.
The goal of Main Line Fertility’s Third Party Reproductive Team is to help create a successful surrogacy experience that meets the expectations of all involved parties.
