Being a Surrogate for a Friend or Family Member

Being a surrogate for someone you know is a unique opportunity that involves carrying a child for someone you have a personal relationship with. This type of surrogacy journey can be emotional for everyone involved and is driven by a close personal bond between the intended parents and the surrogate.


As an Intended Parent, Where Do I Begin the Process if a Friend or Family Member Will Be My Surrogate?

If you have found your own surrogate with a friend or family member, working with a surrogacy agency will help verify that the process is legally and medically sound and will ensure support and direction along the journey. At All Families Surrogacy we offer a program for intended parents that have found their own surrogate.


Can a Friend or Family Member Be A Surrogate?

Asking a friend or family member to be your surrogate is possible. To ensure the procedure is conducted properly and ethically, it is advised to seek advice from legal and medical experts. It is essential to remember that your friends or family member will need to meet the general requirements for a gestational surrogate, as well as pass all the necessary screening.


Who chooses surrogacy to become a parent?

People or couples may choose surrogacy to become parents for various reasons, including infertility, medical issues that make carrying a pregnancy difficult, same-sex couples or people, and genetic concerns. Surrogacy allows intended parents to maintain a biological link to their child while enjoying the benefits of becoming parents. The decision to pursue surrogacy is personal and varies from person to person based on their particular circumstances and desires, and we support everyone’s right to choose surrogacy for their family.
