One of the things that make Extraordinary Conceptions stand tall above the rest is the commitment and focus on the care and support of their surrogates. Surrogacy is a highly unique experience that is incredibly rewarding, yet can be challenging at times, and it’s EC’s main priority to ensure that every surrogate receives the best care possible throughout their journey.
So what makes Extraordinary Conceptions so different, you ask? They offer an exclusive service to EC surrogates called Virtual Monthly Meet-ups! The meet-up occurs once a month amongst small groups of surrogates through video conference. The group is aimed to support the surrogates throughout their journey beginning at Transfer and continuing up to 2 months after delivery.
Marriage and family therapist intern, Alison Chrun says, “Surrogacy isn’t for the weak. It takes an incredible amount of patience and understanding. Every surrogate here at Extraordinary Conceptions is offered a chance to receive support within these groups, but also be of support to others. There are 2nd and 3rd time surrogates who are able to offer first hand experiences in order to emotionally and mentally support her fellow surrogates. Our service is a large reason Intended Parents choose to work alongside our agency. The greatest gift the surrogates give to the IPs is a child, and the greatest gift we here at Extraordinary Conceptions can give back is a stable and caring support system for both surrogates and intended parents. Every surrogate is unique and special here at Extraordinary Conceptions and I’m so honored to get to work with them every day.”
Not only does the group meet once a month, the surrogate also gains access into a Secret Facebook group with the members of their specific meet-up. This allows them to continue discussion, ask questions and give feedback outside of the monthly meetings. Alison facilitates each group and monitors all Facebook groups in order to create the safest and most positive environment possible for each of the surrogates.
And if that wasn’t awesome enough, here’s the cherry on top; every surrogate that attends the monthly meet-up, gets entered into a drawing at the end of the month for a $100 Amazon Gift Card. The next drawing is December 1st! So, if you’re a surrogate at Extraordinary Conceptions and haven’t signed up yet, email Alison at Alison@extraconceptions.com and book your slot!
