Surrogacy for Gay MEN


GROWING FAMILIES educate and support family building journey with donors and surrogates. We also advise about the Egg donation and Surrogacy for Gay Men. Believing all you read on social media has its risks; as does relying solely on the experiences of past parents when costs, quality and alternatives are in constant flux. 

Growing Families concierge and education program accepts gay couples from any country looking at surrogacy and/or egg donation to build a family. Over more than a decade, we have supported many hundreds of gay couples who have engaged in surrogacy in more than ten countries globally. The options and logistics have changed markedly in recent years, not least due to the impact of Covid-19. Such set-backs mean our guidance and expertise is ever more frequently sought.

We can

  • advise on the complete range of issues which you may encounter
  • help you select a pathway & providers that best suit your needs
  • guide your journey, help solve your dilemmas and ensure your journey stays on track


For gay couples, there are excellent surrogacy programs in the USA and Canada (and many poorer ones), as well as mixed quality programs in at least six other countries.

Too many couples say to us after a difficult family building  journey “I wish we had known about your service before we went ahead”.

We provide comprehensive information on your options; eligibility requirements; and considerations in regard to egg donor & surrogate availability; programs which accept gay couples; and in which jursidictions both dads will be on the birth certificate.

We can steer you to programs to suit a range of  budgets; we will help you understand the differences between anonymous and known donors and the implications for your family. We can explain what level of contact you can expect with your surrogate;  risks and how to control them

Our guidance can provide  you with agency satisfaction ratings, IVF success rates by clinic, the differences between guarantee and pay-as-you-go packages; the wait times for surrogate matching; the differences between commercial and altruistic programs, timelines for IVF and egg donors, hidden costs, insurance options amid a host of other important issues.
