We understand that surrogacy is a costly journey and our mission is to try and make surrogacy as simple, transparent and affordable as possible, without any unforeseen surprises. We have designed unique surrogacy programs for you. We can further customize these to cater to your needs and preferences.
Los Angeles-based Surrogacy
Los Angeles Surrogacy has been working with HRC Fertility for many years with great success. We have a close relationship with Dr. Michael Feinman at HRC Fertility who provides IVF and embryo transfers to our surrogates. HRC Fertility is world-renowned infertility research center. Their team of doctors are responsible for creating families for thousands of people. We ensure your surrogate is properly screened according to the American Society of Reproductive Medicine guidelines.
If you are comfortable working with your own clinic or doctor in California, we will be more than happy to coordinate and work with them.
Once you are ready to move forward, we will screen and prepare your surrogate for her embryo transfer. If you require an egg donor, we can introduce you to some donor agencies that we work with. If you already have embryos at another clinic, we can help facilitate shipments and transfers.
Los Angeles Surrogacy Cross-border Surrogacy Program
For over five years, Mexico was the leader in international surrogacy until surrogacy was banned in 2015. Thousands of babies were born through surrogacy programs in Mexico and the clinics were achieving excellent success rates. Having experienced this, we have taken the success of the Mexico-based fertility program and incorporated it into our cross-border program.This program caters to individuals, couples and intended parents wanting to start a family but are on a more limited budget. We have partnered with Fertility Center Cancun to offer the options of having the in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedure, egg retrieval and/or the embryo transfer done in Mexico by an experienced team of fertility doctors. Fertility Center Cancun also has a library of beautiful egg donors that you can select from.
To facilitate this, we will prepare your surrogate at HRC Fertility and then fly her to Mexico for the embryo transfer. After the transfer, she will be on bedrest for a few days and then return to the United States to carry out the pregnancy. Our US-based OB-GYN physicians will manage her pre-natal consults up to delivery of the baby.
