Our goal is to educate you on what to expect, get to know your preferences well, match you with the right person, and expertly hold your hand the rest of the way.

Who Are Intended Parents?
Intended Parents (IPs) are usually people who have tried to have children for many years, naturally, through in vitro, with surgical intervention, and sometimes through other surrogates. Though this isn’t always the case – sometimes people cannot get pregnant on their own or simply do not want to go through pregnancy in the traditional way. All are viable and valid reasons for using Surrogacy services.
Even so, most Intended Parents have been on long journeys to build their families. They include all kinds of couples and single people, including single men who want children, same-sex couples, single women who cannot carry a child to term or do not want to get pregnant naturally or with help, heterosexual couples with family histories that make them hesitant to carry children or pass on their biologies, heterosexual couples who cannot get pregnant on their own, or people who are starting to build their families at older ages.
If you are considering becoming a Surrogate, you may feel the emotional pull to help other people achieve their dreams. This is a gift that not everyone can give and you will be welcomed into an esteemed group of women. Intended Parents and Surrogates tend to form close bonds that sometimes last for years.
Know that every Intended Parent has a different story even if there are common themes. It is important to understand that no one will be judged for seeking out surrogacy. You get to dictate many of the terms of your relationship with your Surrogate.
Why Do Intended Parents Choose Surrogacy?
There are many reasons to consider surrogacy if someone cannot get pregnant on their own or does not want to get pregnant. Many people want to have biological children of their own, and the only way to do that is through Surrogacy. Even if this isn’t the case, many people do want to have the pregnancy experience in some way – and other paths to parenthood do not allow that.
Intended Parents and Surrogates are protected throughout the experience, and there is no chance of “backing out” or changing their minds – everything is legally signed before any medical procedures take place.
Surrogates are instrumental in this process, and they are paid for their work. They are taken care of by the best medical professionals and there will always be caseworkers helping to handle situations large and small.
