EDSI International Surrogacy Program - Reproductive Health Clinic California - Egg Donor & Surrogacy Institute (EDSI)

EDSI International Surrogacy Program


If you are interested in becoming a parent using a surrogacy program located in the United States, we know that you may be facing some challenging decisions. We are aware that residing in another country can pose challenges as you build your family with providers who are here in the United States. Having worked with hundreds of clients from different continents, we’ve designed our concierge service to be particularly responsive to our international clientele.

Our concierge service includes and is not limited to:

  • Standing on your behalf for all appointments and meetings with Surrogates, Donors, Doctors, Lawyers, etc
  • Handling all paperwork, including translation and notarization.
  • Facilitating online calls and bridging the language gap (if any). For our Chinese clients, we have a full-time translator in-house.
  • Personally checking up on your Surrogate and providing updates on the pregnancy and the health of the child as frequently as you require
  • Medical tourism arrangements when you visit the US (need for accommodations, transportation, medical providers, etc)

We are very happy to accommodate particular requests. Please just let us know! If you are interested in International Surrogacy, contact us today.

What Is International Surrogacy?

International Surrogacy is when people who live outside of the United States use a surrogacy agency located within the United States. They choose to use this agency because they tend to be safer and more experienced in helping build families. Sometimes, the country in which they live hasn’t legalized surrogacy, so they have no option but to go outside of it.

This type of surrogacy is Gestational Surrogacy, meaning the Surrogate carries an embryo that has no biological relationship to her. The egg and sperm are from other people and then they are emplanted using In-Vitro.

How Do I Find Surrogates In The United States?

In order to find a Surrogate in the United States, it is best to work with a surrogacy agency with an international program. They will be able to show you Surrogates that have already been vetted and are open to working with international parents. As a surrogacy agency, we have helped international parents from all over the world through our program. We can provide you with Surrogates who have been expertly matched to your needs.

We always match our Surrogates to Intended Parents based on their compatibility and shared goals. As international parents, you may be interested in finding Surrogates who are more likely to send emails, videos, and pictures so that you can feel like you are part of the process. For more information about our process, connect with our team today.

How Much Does International Surrogacy Cost?

Surrogacy costs are based on many different things, including the type of surrogacy that you want to pursue, the agency that you work with, what type of surrogate you work with, if you want multiples, and many other variables. Often, International Surrogacy requires some additional services so it may end up costing a bit more. Once again, this will depend on your location and the pregnancy. Agency fees are typically straightforward and do not change, but there are some expenses that can vary. For more information about surrogacy costs, please reach out to our team.

How Involved Are Parents During International Surrogacy?

With International Surrogacy, there can be some feelings of disconnect. At EDSI, we have experience in working with parents from thousands of miles away. Thus, we have created programs and methods that allow you to feel like you are part of your own journey. Before you sign any contracts with a Surrogate, you will get to talk about how much communication you want and what type of communication that should be. Remember that timing may be an issue, depending on where you live – but you should be the one to get up early or stay up late. The frequency of the contact, and the type of contact, that you will have before, during, and after pregnancy are all strictly laid out in legal terms as part of the surrogacy plan.
