Whether you’re an Intended Parent who dreams of having a family of their own or a Surrogate who believes their calling is to help others, we are here to provide all the resources for a successful journey.
Our goal is to fulfill your dream to build or help grow a family. Our agency is led by a compassionate team of physicians who understand what it takes to have a successful surrogacy journey. We are committed to the highest degree of safety and peace of mind from the beginning to the baby’s healthy arrival.
Our team excels in working with Intended Parents because many have been through the process themselves, motivating and inspiring others throughout their journey. Ultimately, pregnancy is medical in nature and our experience allows you to focus on your journey knowing you are supported by experts.
At Physician’s Surrogacy, we provide medical oversight throughout the journey, leading to safe and successful outcomes.
Our in-house OB/GYNs and advisory board of specialists offer a unique advantage to our Intended Parents, Surrogates, and clinics we partner with.
Our Surrogates made it possible to bring over 1,500 babies into the world. Surrogacy has been an amazing gift for our Surrogate.
Our Surrogates feel so supported and rewarded; many are inspired to return to our program to pass this gift on to another family.
Our Advisory Board offers its experience and expertise to support our Intended Parents and Surrogates, in receiving state-of-the-art medical care. Together, we navigate and mitigate the uncertainties and potential complexities of the pregnancy and delivery process, to ensure the safety of the Surrogate and baby.
We’ve put together a unique Advisory Board of certified medical experts who are outstanding in their fields of perinatology, obstetrics, and neonatology. The Advisory Board members proactively collaborate on opportunities to minimize risks and maximize successful outcomes.
Our agency’s goal is to set a new standard of care for surrogacy management among providers, within hospital systems and within the community.
