Welcome to The Surrogate Scoop!

surrogate scoop, woman scooping ice cream

If you’re new to our Surrogate Scoop, we started this journey as a fun way to interact with real surrogates and ask any questions about surrogacy; from the serious to the silly. It’s also a great way to see what happens in the daily lives of EC employees. We have experienced surrogates, IVF nurses, attorneys and more to help answer any question that you may have.

Some of the questions we have been asked are:

“What was the weirdest food craving that you had during your surrogacy?”

“How big did your feet get?!”

“Was your surrogacy pregnancy different from your personal pregnancies?”

Please feel free to stop by and say “Hi” or submit any questions you may have to us at Surrogacyadvocate@extraconceptions.com.

Make sure you check out our Surrogacy FAQs for some of the most commonly asked questions too!

Our Facebook link below will give you access to all of our Surrogate Scoop videos.

"We are a married couple living in Southern California and have been struggling with infertility for three years. We started IVF treatments and have completed 4 full cycles that have not
resulted in a pregnancy. We are hoping to conceive through egg donation. We are a well established, loving couple.
I am half Korean and would love to find someone who shares my heritage and who can help us. We have been searching for a donor for one year. Having been through several IVF cycles, we fully recognize that donating one’s eggs is not a small favor to ask. It is an extraordinarily selfless contribution. We would be very grateful if you could consider helping us start our own journey. We truly believe this is our time." In addition to the basic requirements listed on our website, this couple is looking for:
1. Ideally seeking someone with 50% Korean heritage, as one of the intended parents is half #Korean and half Norwegian, so it would be special to be matched with a donor who has a similar ethnic background.
2. Prefer someone under the age of 30.
3. Healthy and will avoid alcohol, smoking, drugs, and caffeine before and during the cycle.
4. Looking for a donor who has the knowledge of their family history.

If you would like more infornation on how you can help this couple and details on compensation, please email analu@extraconceptions.com or register online - link in bio.

For many single men, the idea of starting a family through egg donation and surrogacy is becoming more and more common. It’s estimated that over 2 million men in the U.S. alone are single dads which is approximately 17% of the single parent population. Just because a man is single, doesn’t mean that he can’t become a father. This is also true for gay men. Thanks to assisted reproductive technologies, single men and/or gay men can become parents through the use of an egg donor and a gestational surrogate.
