The Physician Advantage

Your Journey to Becoming an Intended Parent

Intended Parents Journey

We understand it took a lot of time and effort to create your embryos. From selecting your IVF center, choosing the right Reproductive Endocrinologist, the egg retrieval process, and waiting to see how many embryos you’ve created. We make sure that your investment is protected, and the newest member of your family is delivered safely into this world.

During your initial consultation our goal is for you to understand our process, get to know us and be confident that your surrogate journey will be as smooth as possible. We will go over all your preferences, goals and requirements that are vital in creating your unique path to parenthood.

We also want to learn more about the physician you are currently working with, so we can find a surrogate that will fit both you and your IVF centers preferences.

Our consultative approach takes into consideration that every journey is unique, and one set option doesn’t suit everyone’s needs. We will work closely with your IVF center and present you with a personalized plan that works best for you.

Immediately following your consultation, you will receive a quotation based on the scenarios discussed. Your quotation outlines all variables including financial considerations (surrogate experience, employment status and location), additional testing preferences and logistics (based on the proximity to your IVF center).

During the surrogate matching process our team aligns your goals, preferences and center requirements to create your ideal match. You are presented surrogates who have passed our rigorous social and medical pre-screening process, which includes a comprehensive background check, internal OB review of prior pregnancy and delivery records, and preliminary diagnostic screenings. We also confirm the candidate meets the gestational carrier criteria and your IVF center and Reproductive Endocrinologist.

To start the complementary matching process, we simply collect the necessary identification and then hand select your matches based on your pathway to parenthood plan. Picture profiles of your potential surrogates are sent to you. Once you’ve selected the profiles that you’re interested in learning more about, we will share their public profile with you. If there are any FDA or medical consideration a potential surrogate needs to be made aware of, one of our physicians can discuss this with them prior to moving forward. The final step would be to schedule a meet and greet video chat with your potential surrogate, allowing you to move forward with confidence.

After a match is confirmed by both you and your surrogate, our agency agreement is signed, and you officially become an Intended Parent with Physician’s Surrogacy. We will not ask you to sign an agreement until a two-way match is confirmed. Your surrogate then goes through a comprehensive medical screening at your IVF center. A psychological screening is also conducted ensuring that your surrogate is medically and emotionally prepared to prioritize a surrogacy journey.

Once your surrogate completes the screening, a medical clearance letter is issued, allowing you to proceed to the legal contract phase. Both you and your surrogate have your own legal representation. The legal contract takes approximately 2-4 weeks, however; your legal representation stands by to support you and your surrogate throughout the journey.

Physician’s Surrogacy acts as a liaison between your Reproductive Endocrinologist, your surrogate and their IVF coordinator providing additional resources and support until graduation. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that you have two physician teams working together to prepare your surrogate for the embryo transfer. While we don’t provide clinical guidance, we help with the coordination of logistics and monitoring. This includes making sure that the surrogate maintains timely contact with the IVF center and attends all necessary appointments. Collaborating with your IVF center also guarantees that we are working together as a team, providing you with the best possible outcome.

Pre-Graduation: As physicians, we understand the importance of timeliness and the delicate details of medical protocols to ensure their success. We work closely with your IVF center from the beginning of the IVF process until graduation, ensuring a smooth start to the pregnancy.

During the early stages of pregnancy, time is of the essence. Working closely with you and your surrogate, we support you by ordering NIPT testing (Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing) and ensuring the managing OB is provided the results, a service no other agency can offer. NIPT is a DNA test to screen for the most common chromosomal abnormalities, including Down Syndrome (trisomy 21), Edwards Syndrome (trisomy 18 and Patau Syndrome (trisomy 13).

Post Graduation: Once your surrogate graduates from your IVF center’s care, one of our experienced physicians continues to closely monitor the pregnancy through detailed reports and peer-to-peer with their OB where necessary. These detailed reports are used by our clinical team and your case manager to keep you informed throughout the pregnancy, rather than relying on your surrogate for medical updates. If further explanation is needed, our in-house physicians are able to speak with you directly. Closely following the progress of the pregnancy allows us to identify and mitigate potential risks.

Additional testing, if elected, is ordered and coordinated by our agency, guaranteeing their completion. The results are made available to your surrogate’s managing OB for direct management.

If your surrogate requires a greater degree of care, our physicians can leverage their network of specialists to provide your surrogate with what she needs. This unique aspect on an OB-managed agency protects the safety of both the surrogate and your baby. Prior to hospital selection and placement, we confirm the facility selected meets our standards, including a NICU of an adequate level of care and resources.

Antenatal Testing: Antenatal testing is used to evaluate your baby’s well-being throughout your surrogate’s pregnancy. For many of our Intended Parents, antenatal testing provides reassurance that their baby will be healthy and reduces the chances of unforeseen challenges. While in many OB offices this testing is reserved only for high-risk pregnancies, most Intended Parents who undergo IVF and surrogacy view it as peace of mind that their child will be healthy. Unfortunately, most Intended Parents are not even aware these tests are available, nor do they have the opportunity to elect to have them done. As an OB-managed agency, Physician’s Surrogacy secures your option and provides reassurance for a successful outcome.

The culmination of this exciting journey is welcoming your newborn into the world. Leading up to the delivery, you and your surrogate enjoy around the clock support, preparing everyone for the arrival of your bundle of joy. Once the baby is born and in your loving care, we continue to provide post-delivery support to the surrogate for an additional 3 to 6 months.

For international parents, arrangements can be made for on-site concierge support during the delivery of your baby and the hospital stay. If needed, help is provided to secure passports and visas, allowing you to wholly focus on your new family.
