Choosing a Surrogate Program

At Extraordinary Conceptions, we help countless families make their family-building dreams come true through our nationally-recognized surrogate mother service. Here, intended parents receive unwavering support, as well as all the resources they need to successfully choose a surrogate mother and bring new life into the world. While this journey is exciting, it is a life-changing one, and it can be fairly involved. This, while wonderful, can also be overwhelming for all involved. It’s critical to look for an agency that can support your needs and help you navigate this process best. Here at Extraordinary Conceptions, we have all the experience, reputation, and credentials necessary to provide you with a rewarding experience.

Choosing Surrogate Parenting Services

Choosing the right surrogate parenting services is no small decision, and we recommend that you take your time in doing so. Aside from researching every potential agency, we also recommend that intended parents take time to think about what they want from their service. For instance, some families might prefer to work with an agency where staff members speak their native tongue. For others, it might be important to choose an agency that offers additional services to their intended parents, surrogates, and donors, like onsite insurance & travel specialists, access to LMFTs who specialize in fertility and family therapy and top notch reproductive attorneys. Many intended parents also look for an agency that treats their surrogates and donors with respect. For instance, Extraordinary Conceptions offers surrogates a much larger and comprehensive life insurance policy than other agencies.

How to Choose a Surrogacy Agency

Yes, it can feel overwhelming to choose a surrogate program, but once you know the key factors to look for, it will be much more straightforward.  We recommend you consider the following when choosing your surrogate program or agency:

  • Qualifications
    Qualifications are non-negotiables! Be sure that your potential agency has all the proper credentials before you proceed with them. When you speak with a potential agency, ask lots of questions. Be sure to inquire if they have a surrogacy agency license and comply with FDA and ASRM guidelines.

  • Experience
    There are many fertility agencies out there, but only some of them have the experience you need to feel comfortable in your surrogacy journey. We recommend that you work with experienced surrogate parenting services. Even a few years in the field will make an enormous difference.

    Some parents also choose to work with an agency that has lived experience with infertility themselves, as they understand how complex the experience can be and how much it means.

  • Value
    It can be expensive to work with a surrogate, and agencies work hard to ensure their parents get the most for their money. Be sure to research what different agencies include with their fees— you will find that your dollar goes much further with certain companies. We recommend that you work with an agency that offers proper surrogate screening and psychological care as a part of their package— this type of care is worth the cost.

  • Reputation
    When choosing surrogate services, it’s crucial to do plenty of research on your potential agency. This can mean everything from reading testimonials and reviews to speaking with your doctor or other families who have used surrogates in the past. The more you know about your potential agency, the better equipped you are to make a decision.

Why Work with Extraordinary Conceptions?

At Extraordinary Conceptions, we understand how complex infertility can be—we’ve experienced it ourselves. Nearly two decades ago, after years of unsuccessful attempts at conception, our founders, Mario and Stephanie Caballero, worked with a surrogate to bring their now-adult twins to the world. Inspired by this journey and determined to help other families find success, they created Extraordinary Conceptions in 2005. Since then, we’ve been helping families make their dreams come true with surrogacy and egg donation. In the years since we’ve opened our doors, we’ve seen countless “miracle babies” grow up into happy and healthy young adults. We’d love to add your family to our list of success stories.

With us, parents can rest assured that they are working with an agency that understands their needs and experience. This understanding and empathy have formed the way we run our agency; we know what an enormous undertaking this journey can be, and we want to make it easy for parents. That’s why we provide access to as many services as you’ll need, from insurance specialists, travel coordinators and family therapists to recommendations for third-party IVF doctors and attorneys. We’ve also taken care to employ a multilingual staff to work with parents from all over the globe.

We are also pleased to offer our intended parents our exclusive S.A.F.E and Stress-Free Programs. The former stands for Single Agency Fee Experience and allows parents to use their fee for multiple surrogacy cycles, in some cases, if necessary to achieve positive results. The latter allows for parents only to pay a partial fee upfront. These programs are only available with Extraordinary Conceptions.

If you are ready to begin your surrogacy journey with us, you can register to become an Intended Parent today. We are also happy to answer any of your questions or address any concerns you might have. Simply give us a call. We are honored to be a part of your journey!
