Surrogacy in New York

Surrogacy is a wonderful way for hopeful parents to start/grow their families who are otherwise unable to pursue pregnancy by natural means. 

As per the new Child-Parent Security Act, Intended Parents residing in New York can now legally start their gestational surrogacy journey. This allows LGBTQ couples and people experiencing infertility to start/grow their family through this process. If you have come to this page then you have surely chosen the best ally to pursue surrogacy.

Step 1

Complimentary Consultation

Ready to have your own children? Chances are that your surrogacy journey began a long time ago, but now you’re ready to take the necessary steps to make it a reality. By getting in touch with Physician Surrogacy, you have already made a significant effort towards actualizing your dream.

During your initial consultation, our goal is for you to understand our process, get to know us, and be confident that your Surrogacy 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 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 center’s preferences. Don’t worry if you haven’t created an embryo yet, we will discuss different scenarios with you.

Our consultative approach takes into consideration that every journey is unique, and one pre-defined option doesn’t suit everyone’s needs.

Step 2

Creation of Your Pathway to Parenthood

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

If you have not created an embryo yet, we will refer you to one of our partner fertility clinics to start the process. In the case that you already have embryos, eggs, or sperm that you would like to use, the transfer to a U.S. clinic can be initiated. Your Pathway To Parenthood Plan that we will create for you will take all of these factor into consideration.

Step 3

Our Surrogate Matching Process

The Surrogate profiles we share with you have all passed the pre-screening process. This process includes a comprehensive background check, internal OB review of prior pregnancy, delivery records, and preliminary diagnostic screenings.

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 processes, which includes a comprehensive background check, internal OB review of prior pregnancy, delivery records, and preliminary diagnostic screenings.

We further confirm the candidate meets the gestational carrier criteria of your IVF center and Reproductive Endocrinologist.

To start the complementary matching process, we collect the necessary identification followed by hand-selecting 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 considerations, a potential Surrogate needs to be made aware of, one of our physicians is available to discuss this with them before moving forward. The final step is to schedule a meet and greet video chat with your potential Surrogate, allowing you to move forward with confidence.

Step 4

Agency Agreement

When you’ve found your perfect match, both you and your Surrogate agree to move forward, you’ll sign the agency agreement and officially be an Intended Parent with Physician’s Surrogacy.

After confirmation of a match by both you and your Surrogate, our agency agreement is signed, and you officially become an Intended Parent with Physician’s Surrogacy. We do not ask you to sign a contract until a two-way match is confirmed. Your Surrogate then goes through a comprehensive medical screening at your IVF center.

A psychological screening is 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.

Step 5

IVF Medical Process

You’ll have peace of mind knowing that you have two physician teams working together to prepare your Surrogate for the embryo transfer.

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 have peace of mind knowing that you have two physician teams working together to prepare your Surrogate for the embryo transfer.

We help with the coordination of logistics and monitoring, including making sure that the Surrogate maintains timely contact with the IVF center and attends all necessary appointments.

Collaborating with your IVF center guarantees that we are working together as a team, providing you with the best possible outcome.

Step 6


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

You’ll receive updates directly from Physicians Surrogacy, rather than the Surrogate, after every appointment. This ensures that you’re receiving timely and accurate information regarding your baby. As an OB-managed agency, Physicians Surrogacy provides you with the option of electing for additional antenatal testing to be done providing reassurance of the healthy progress of your baby.

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.


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

Working closely with you and your Surrogate, we support you by ordering NIPT testing (Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing) and providing the results to the managing OB, a service no other agency offers. 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).

Step 7


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.Arrangements can be made for on-site concierge support during the delivery of your baby and the hospital stay.

Help is provided to secure passports and visas, allowing you to focus on your new family.

After the baby is born, you will get a birth certificate and a passport. Children born in all inhabited territories of the U.S. are given an American passport but can apply for their parent’s citizenship once they return home.

The Surrogacy Process

Parents Testimonials

During our surrogacy journey, our embryo split resulting in twins!

Our surrogate was originally going to visit her previous OB who had delivered her children. However, due to the distance from where she lived to the hospital, she needed to see a doctor at a closer location. Through their vast network, Physician’s Surrogacy was able to find a practicing OB closer to the hospital and ensured that they had the capacity to handle a high-risk case. They also made sure that the hospital had the proper level NICU. It was all worked out so quickly and our surrogate was able to be seen by the new OB the same week!

My surrogate was medically cleared and completely healthy when we started our journey

My surrogate was medically cleared and completely healthy when we started our journey, but during a routine check-up, her OB noticed she had an elevated AFP level during the second trimester. Naturally, we all got really scared andimagined the worst-case scenario. Luckily, a physician from Physician’s Surrogacy was able to coordinate a meeting with a Perinatologist, GYN Oncologist and the OB to devise a plan to ensure that both the surrogate and baby were safe. I am happy to say our surrogate’s amino fluid tested normal and we have a healthy baby!

Our surrogate journey was relatively easy until she had unexpected bleeding and pre-term contractions.

A physician stepped in and did a peer-to-peer with her managing OB and they both decided on the proper protocol in order to ensure a safe journey and delivery. Our surrogate was put on bed rest and she had our full support along with her surrogate support manager, case manager and the entire Physician’s Surrogacy team! Without our agency being physician managed, I don’t know what our outcome would have been! I am so happy our surrogate was healthy and safe and so was our baby boy!

What You Need to Know About Surrogacy.

  • Before Surrogacy
  • During Surrogacy
  • After Delivery

Who can become a parent with our surrogacy program?

Anyone can. Physician's Surrogacy wants to help you build your family regardless of martial status, sexual orientation or gender identity. The U.S. states that our Surrogates come from all have very favorable legislation and don't restrict surrogacy to only traditional family models. That means that unlike a lot of other countries that offer surrogacy programs e.g. the Ukraine, anyone can become a parent with us in California. Other countries don't permit single parents, unmarried couples, homosexual couples or intended parent(s) who need a double donor to become a parent through surrogacy due to legislation. This is why the U.S. is such a popular place for surrogacy journeys from parents around the world.

Can I start the process without an embryo?

Yes you can! When consulting with us we can discuss your options where it is best for you to have your embryos created. We partner with the best fertility clinics in the U.S. and can create an embryo here at one of our partner clinics.

How can I find a Surrogate? Where do your Surrogates come from?

Here at Physician’s Surrogacy, we receive applications from women in seven different states across the nation. After undergoing our extensive prescreening process, our experienced team compiles a group of candidates who are not only qualified to be a Surrogate, but also ready, able, and excited to be a part of our program. This allows us to match you with the perfect Surrogate who most closely aligns with your clinic’s criteria, your criteria, and her personal preferences as well, making it the perfect match.

How much does it cost to have a Surrogate?

There’s no exact answer to this question of Surrogate price, as the overall cost depends on several factors. Therefore, Intended Parents need to have a good understanding of the different services required during the surrogacy process, to fully understand the total cost of surrogacy. At Physician’s Surrogacy, we pride ourselves on our transparency with our services and pricing. Immediately after your complimentary consultation, you are provided with a price quotation based on your circumstances and preferences.

What is a Gestational Surrogate?

A gestational surrogate is a woman who becomes pregnant using an embryo created by the process of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Pregnancy may be achieved using the mother’s eggs and the father’s sperm. Donor eggs or donor sperm can also be used. One or more of these embryos is implanted in a Surrogate who carries the child or children to term. There will be no genetic relation between the child and Surrogate mother.

Why would a woman choose to become a Gestational Surrogate?

There are several reasons why a woman would choose to become a Surrogate mother for someone else. Some Surrogates have seen a friend or family member experience issues with infertility and are eager to help a couple or individuals become parents. Others may feel that their family is complete, but love being pregnant and feel that helping prospective parents is their greater calling.

Will there be contracts with my Surrogate?

Yes. Once you are matched with a Surrogate, we will draft an agreement and negotiate it on your behalf with your Surrogate’s independent attorney. These contracts cover everything from the medical procedure to your Surrogate’s reimbursements to the amount of contact you would like to have with the Surrogate during the process. There are two separate attorneys, one to represent you, the Intended Parents, and the other that represents the Surrogate, to avoid any conflict of interest.
