Growing Families, formerly Families Through Surrogacy, was set up by parents via surrogacy to help others on this journey
Everybody’s circumstances are different. You may be a couple with different nationalities. You may have embryos you need to transport. You may have an egg donor but not a surrogate. You may want to bring your egg donor with you, or create your embryos in one country, but complete surrogacy in another. Surrogacy may be something you are planning for two years hence, or it may be your last avenue after repeated failed IVF. Different providers suit different people.
Over the past seven years, we have provided detailed advice to over 600 singles and couples from many nations to help them navigate their journeys to parenthood safely and with confidence.
Surrogacy is a complex area and you deserve to know everything involved. Too often intended parents engage without full awareness of the risks and how to manage them.
Some feedback on providers we are not able to publish online owing to risks of defamation. However we are able to communicate such feedback one-on-one.
Surrogacy laws, destinations, government processes and eligibility continue to change.
Often client reports will include details on surrogacy options in two or more jurisdictions. Only service providers who have demonstrated high levels of service and care are recommended.
This process takes into consideration your nationality, marital status, medical history, risk profile and budget
