Love Makes a Family

Love Makes a Family

Surrogacy is a journey that requires careful planning, research, and emotional readiness. For intended parents considering surrogacy in New Zealand or abroad, there are many legal, practical, and emotional factors. By understanding the match-making process, legal and practical considerations in Canada and the US, emotional readiness and resilience, the screening and preparation of egg donors, and the best practices for surrogate matching, intended parents can make informed decisions and embark on their surrogacy journey with confidence.

New Zealand has a growing community of altruistic surrogates. They are willing to help intended parents achieve their dreams of parenthood.

Surrogacy is an emotionally challenging journey. To help intended parents on this journey we recommend professional counselling. Professional counseling is essential to help with the emotionally rollercoaster – to prepare and assist with resillience on their family building journey.
