We understand...

every surrogate is unique.

The journey of surrogacy is an amazing, life-changing experience.

Moms get to help another family get started while bringing herself the opportunity do the things she’s always dreamed of for her own family.

Your ability to bring tiny humans into the world is not something just any woman can do.

And if you could do it again for a couple in need, you could make a life-changing amount of money.

Whether it allows you a little extra time to stay home while the kids are still little, take a family vacation that otherwise would never fit the budget, put the kids in private school, buy a home, or upgrade your existing home, the compensation can benefit your entire family. It’s truly a unique experience very few moms can be a part of.

It’s our goal to connect amazing moms with the right surrogacy agencies to create the most magical journey imaginable.

We believe with all our hearts that surrogacy is family, sisterhood, strength. Surrogacy is… Love.

"There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others."

-Mandy Hale

A smooth journey requires the

right professionals

A good surrogacy agency matches surrogates with hopeful people who want to have a baby. They thoroughly screen potential surrogates and parents and  guide them through the entire process, including timely disbursement of funds to the surrogate, and providing support until a short while after delivery.

But, not all surrogacy agencies are created equal.

There are so many parties involved in the delicate emotional, legal and financial process and agency oversight is a must.

The right agency will make sure all medical bills are taken care of by the trust and escrow so that nothing remains on the surrogate’s shoulders after delivery.

The agency you choose will be responsible for communicating between attorneys, doctors, psychologists and others to make sure everyone is in the loop at all times so you don’t have to balance all the details.

Many fly-by-night agencies, more focused on collecting their fees than they are on helping people, are competing for the same pool of potential surrogates.

Women who fall for their alluring ads and false promises of high compensation can end up having to fend for themselves after matching.

That's where we come in.

Our founders have been surrogates 2 and 3 times each, and have worked closely with dozens of agencies throughout their careers.

Sunshine & Casey know what it’s like to be in your position both as novice first time surrogates and with more experience. 

A referral from us SAVES you dozens of HOURS and potential heartache.

Our short quiz will make sure you meet the deal-breaker requirements for any reputable agency, and it will also tell us which agencies you will qualify for and which ones you won’t.

While the basic guidelines are the same across the board, every agency is looking for certain types of candidates to match with their intended parents, and some have stricter BMI or Lifestyle requirements than others.

Your time is valuable and so are YOU!

And the best part is..

...our help will never cost you a thing.

"However motherhood comes to you, it's a miracle."

So... what's it like to

be a surrogate?

Sunshine details her first surrogacy experience…

We're looking for unicorns like you...

You may not realize it, but your body’s ability to create a healthy baby AND bring it into the world isn’t just amazing — it’s rare.

You may not have felt special as you struggled to see your feet and you stopped fitting into your bras, but we promise: you really are so, so freaking special.

And we need moms just like you to bring joy to a family in the making and to your family as well.

Sunshine details her first surrogacy experience…

If you grow babies...

There are couples who need you.

So many people struggle with infertility and carrying healthy babies to term. For some, carrying a baby comes easily, but for many, the tireless effort to achieve pregnancy results in deep heartache and suffering.

Whether it’s because their bodies don’t allow them to conceive, they continually miscarry, or they’re gay or single fathers who just can’t do it on their own… the battle to create a family can be hard fought and devastating.

Pregnancy can be hard, but for a lot of people, it’s downright impossible.

You need to know, mama:

That’s why surrogacy agencies are so crazy about talking to you: your ability to make tiny humans with ease is not something they see every day.

And if you could do it again for a couple in need, you could make a life-changing amount of money.

Meet our founder...

Sunshine Hanson

She’s been a surrogate three times…

…and she’s going to walk you through the initial process to make sure your journey is a success. 

Sunshine is fiercely independent, pragmatic and resourceful. As a teen mom, she earned her Bachelor’s degree in English Education from CSULB and went on to teach High School English, empowering students who needed to feel seen and heard by teaching them the art of written expression.

It was the example of a friend that inspired Sunshine to go out on a limb and try something as “crazy” as surrogacy and it absolutely changed her life for the better.

Sunshine has helped to bring four babies into the world, completing two families, across two continents, not including her own!

Now she is using her passion and experience to advocate for and support women in realizing their dreams of creating the most beautiful life they can for their families.

"They say it takes a village to raise a child. Sometimes it takes a village to have a child.

Self-Care Reminders for Surrogates or Surrogates-To-Be ✨

→ Taking care of yourself can (and should!) come be prioritized, especially if you`re someone who`s always taking care of others.

→ One of the best things you can teach your children is how to show up for themselves by modeling how you love, advocate, and show up for yourself.

→ You`ll have bad days (and that`s okay!)

→ Putting your needs first doesn`t make you selfish, it makes you HUMAN.

There`s a misconception around surrogacy and children, specifically that they won`t understand what`s happening or won`t feel comfortable with their parent becoming a surrogate. While surrogacy can be confusing, the misconception that children are not capable of understanding and accepting is just not true!⁣

As Myka so perfectly shares in this clip, children are understanding, compassionate, and far smarter than we think! ⁣

If you`re nervous about talking to your child(ren) about surrogacy, the most important thing to do is be honest & open the conversation early. ⁣

Chances are, your kids will be on board. . . and excited for how they can be involved in the journey, too!⁣

If someone tells you to go on an independent surrogacy journey. . . run!

But seriously, an independent surrogacy journey is not something I would choose to do. Why? Because there’s something to be said for working with a reputable agency and advocacy team that has your back every step of the way! While an independent journey can be great. . . there are just so many things that can go wrong!

When you’re working with a reputable agency, they will protect BOTH sides—the surrogate and the Intended Parents—and they will handle the paperwork, tough conversations, difficult questions, and everything else you may face. Your agency will also make sure that everything is 100% legal (which, let’s be honest, is SUPER important when you’re bringing a life into the world!)

Here’s the TLDR: While an independent surrogacy journey is an available option, as a surrogate, you are doing so much already! And to give yourself so much extra work and stress just doesn’t seem right.

PS: Surrogacy Is. . . ❤️ only works with agencies (and reputable ones!). Unfortunately, we don’t provide advocacy for independent journeys, so it’s another downside of going independent.

Questions? As a three-time surro, I’d love to answer them.
