We undertake an extensive pre-screening process which includes background checks. These screening procedures ensure that the overall surrogacy journey will be safe, healthy, and successful to all involved parties. Once a candidate has satisfied all required components of our screening process, they become eligible for matching.
When we have identified a tentative surrogate match, one of our case managers will be assigned as the designated support person for both the intended parents and the surrogate throughout the rest of the surrogacy journey.
The Case Manager will assist and guide you from screening, through cycling, to embryo transfer, and throughout the pregnancy. Although it is important that you have a designated point person, our entire team remains available to support you at any time.
To ensure the utmost safety and protection for all parties involved, it is vital that intended parents and gestational carriers have competent legal representation to come to an agreement throughout the surrogacy process. As an agency, we will make sure you have expert representation for a smooth and stable journey.
We will also help coordinate medical services: we will coordinate with the hospital, clinics and medical professionals working with you on your behalf to minimize the risk of stress and miscommunication during the birth of the child.
Both intended parents and surrogates can benefit from surrogacy support and counseling – before, during, and after their journey. Our counselors provide valuable and thoughtful guidance, education, and assist in clarifying and exploring roles, expectations, and potential outcomes for all parties involved. Availability to surrogacy support improves relationships between intended parents and surrogates, benefits the children at the heart of surrogacy, and enhances the entire surrogacy experience itself.
We offer online payment options – convenient, easy, and fast – pay from the comfort of your home!

Frequently Asked Surrogacy Questions
What is surrogacy?
Surrogacy helps those who are unable to have children become parents. In Nevada, the only legal type of surrogacy is called gestational surrogacy. Gestational surrogacy is a method of assisted reproduction where intended parents work with a gestational surrogate who will carry and care for their baby(ies) until birth. The intended parents supply the sperm and egg therefore the child is not genetically related to the surrogate. The surrogate mother does not have a legal claim nor parental rights to the child after they are born.
Intended parents use surrogacy to start or grow their families when they can’t do so on their own. It’s a process that requires medical and legal expertise, as well as a strong support process throughout the journey. Our Nevada team can help unite women looking to become a surrogate with the intended parents who fit her criteria.
How does surrogacy work?
Through IVF, embryos are created in a lab at a fertility clinic. In gestational surrogacy, the intended parents use their own genetic material. Sometimes, an egg donor is required. At the fertility clinic, 1-2 embryos are implanted into a gestational carrier, who carries the baby(ies) to term.
Why choose surrogacy to grow your family?
Surrogacy allows couples and individuals from a variety of backgrounds, ages, and sexual orientations to build their families.
Intended parents who use surrogacy include:
• Heterosexual couples who have struggled with infertility
• Intended mothers who are unable to carry a child
• Intended parents who have a genetic defect or health condition they don’t want to pass onto the child
• Same sex intended parents who want to have a genetic link to their baby
Each surrogacy journey is unique!
How much do surrogate mothers cost?
Surrogate mother pay depends on a few factors: where she lives, if she has insurance, and whether or not she’s a first time carrier. On average, surrogate mothers are paid a base fee of $30k-$40k, plus additional compensation and benefits.
If you live in the U.S. you can estimate surrogacy costs around $108K-$156K for a journey, exclusive of IVF costs. The actual journey costs depend on the services intended parents need, your insurance and the details of your specific journey. Each journey is unique – there is no “one cost fits all”.
How much do surrogates get paid?
The monetary benefits of becoming a surrogate mother are significant, but the indescribable sense of fulfillment our surrogates get from helping intended families bring a child into the world cannot be found doing anything else.
