What Makes Us Special

  • Credible

    In an unregulated industry, it pays to work with a licensed agency (NYS Department of Health License Number GS211010) and an attorney-directed agency that is obligated by law to uphold fair and ethical business practices.

  • Personal

    Each and every one of our staff members has been a surrogate on multiple occasions, some as many as four times.  With that comes a deep understanding, knowledge, and empathy to guide our surrogates and parents every step of the way.

  • Comprehensive

    We work together with a team of specialists nationally and internationally, including attorneys, psychologists, and social workers, to guide you every step of the way throughout your surrogacy journey.
