Surrogacy process USA

Our US surrogacy management service helps support you through the process of US surrogacy from start to finish, drawing together all the professionals and elements you will need to deal with as UK intended parents, and making sure your journey is safe, legal and responsibly managed.

Planning review

If you decide to work with us after your surrogacy options review, we will talk through the next steps in more detail (face to face if we have not already done so).  This will involve discussing the kind of US agency you want to work with and your fertility treatment needs, helping you to put together a comprehensive budget, and answering any questions you have about the overall process.

step 2

Legal advice

We are committed to a safe and legal process and recommend that you seek legal advice in the UK at this stage, if you have not already done so.  If you wish to see a solicitor from Natalie Gamble Associates we can arrange this for you, although there is no obligation and you can work with any lawyer you choose.

US introductions

We will take full profile information from you and help you choose the right US agency and attorney to work with. To help you, we have handpicked a selection of the best professionals in various surrogacy-friendly states, whose service and experience with UK couples is proven.  We will help you liaise with them and provide them with the information about you that they need.

step 3
step 4

Supporting your match

Once your US agency has helped you match with a surrogate (and an egg donor if necessary), you will have a conference call with your surrogate. You may want to organise a trip to the US to meet face to face, and we can help arrange this before you sign your US surrogacy contract with the help of your attorney.  We will also put you in touch with an insurance broker to ensure that you have US health insurance coverage for your surrogate and child. 

Conception and pregnancy support

We will help you arrange your fertility treatment, working with the best clinics in the UK and the USA to coordinate treatment which works logistically. During the pregnancy we will check in with you regularly and be on hand to help with any concerns no matter how big or small. There is a lot to pull together, and we will make sure that each step of the process is dealt with at the right time.

step 5
step 6

Creating a family

We will help you to plan for a birth in another country, both practically and emotionally, to ensure that all goes as smoothly as possible. We will help you with your travel and accommodation arrangements and support you while you are in the USA.  We will also put you in touch with the professionals you need to help you deal with the immigration processes properly so that you can bring your baby home as quickly as possible, and we will provide you with any information you need to support your legal applications in the UK.

The end of the beginning

We bow out at this stage in terms of our professional service but we always love to stay in touch with the families we help create.
