Background review & interview
We feel a special commitment to ensure that the surrogacy process is a positive experience for all of our clients. That is why it is so important for us to obtain background details on all of our surrogates and families.
Once we have gone over your background, medical history, and preferences for the process we are ready to begin finding the right family (for surrogates) or right surrogate (for intended parents) for your surrogacy process.

Once all the arrangements have been made with the couple, the surrogate will begin working with medical specialists to get ready for the surrogate pregnancy.

Specially trained doctors will transfer the couple’s embryo to the surrogate and begin the pregnancy.
