Becoming a Surrogate Mother: Does the Surrogacy Agency, Location Matter?
If you’re considering becoming a surrogate mother, you may be asking if it’s important for you to live near the surrogacy agency you plan to work with during your surrogacy journey. Nevada is a surrogacy-friendly state. That means in Nevada, proximity to the agency is not a requirement. However, one reason Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada has locations in both Las Vegas and Reno is to make sure both our surrogates and intended parents can easily access all of the services and assistance we offer throughout your experience.
Physical and Emotional Support is Key Benefits of our Local Surrogacy Agency
Many surrogates often need or want some form of support during their journey. Having one of our surrogacy agencies nearby makes it much easier to get whatever kind of support you need when you need it. Through Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada, you can find physical support every step of the way. We help with everything from providing legal advice to facilitating medical care.
Sometimes it helps to talk to someone who truly understands what it means to be a surrogate mother. Surrogacy is a unique experience that many people may not understand if they haven’t been there. At both our Reno and Las Vegas locations, we offer emotional support options such as counseling and support groups to help you talk through both the challenges and the joys of surrogacy.
Does Location of my Surrogacy Agency Impact my Potential Surrogacy Compensation?
Your surrogacy compensation will be agreed upon before your surrogacy journey begins and is facilitated through our legal team. Any expenses you may incur traveling as part of your surrogacy journey, such as to and from medical appointments, are considered covered costs and typically paid for by the intended parents. Your proximity to your medical care provider is not dictated by Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada. We will help you find a medical care provider near you if you want help with that, but many surrogate mothers already have a medical team they prefer to use to care for them during the pregnancy.
What if the Intended Parents Don’t Live in Nevada?
Many hopeful parents living in states that are not surrogacy-friendly look for a surrogate agency in states that have laws supporting surrogacy. Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada is part of a nationwide network that helps build families through adoption or surrogacy all over America. It is not uncommon for intended parents to travel to a state such as Nevada, seeking out an agency like Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada that can match them with a Nevada-based gestational carrier to help them realize their dreams of parenthood. Our surrogacy-friendly laws even allow pre-birth orders for intended parents who live out of state, as long as the surrogate intends to deliver in Nevada and the baby is ultimately born in Nevada.
Having locations in Las Vegas and Reno allows us to create a fairly large network of potential surrogate mothers, conveniently close to all of the services we provide to create a safe, smooth surrogacy journey for our gestational carriers.
Proximity to your Surrogacy Agency is not a Legal Requirement, but it is Ideal
While it’s possible to have a successful surrogacy experience without using any of the support services offered by Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada, most of our surrogates agree it’s a much more positive experience with a comprehensive, professional support network nearby. Being able to access the physical and emotional support options you need in both Las Vegas and Reno helps the surrogates who work with Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada enjoy a safe and joyful surrogacy experience.

With those goals in mind, she, along with her husband and dogs, packed up, sold their family home and moved to the banks of the Columbia River in Central Washington’s wine country, where the pace of life is slower and the sun shines brighter. Realizing in our modern age, more of us turn to the internet for information than ever before, Brianne, now dedicates her time to educating others through blog writing.
As a life-long information junkie, Brianne enjoys taking deep dives into new topics, then condensing them in an interesting way to convey valuable information in a relatively short amount of space. Once her career, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and mixed martial arts remain hobbies, along with boating, reading, and traveling.
