🎗️ October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month 🎗️

Did you know that 1 in 8 women and 1 in 833 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer? Early detection is our strongest weapon! Remember to self-examine, schedule regular check-ups, and be mindful of your risk factors.

Here are some tips for early detection:

🎗️Perform regular breast self-exams to become familiar with the normal look and feel of your breasts. Look for any changes, such as lumps, dimples, skin changes, or nipple discharge. If you notice any unusual changes, consult a healthcare professional.

🎗️Mammograms are essential for detecting breast cancer in its early stages, often before symptoms appear. Discuss the frequency and timing of mammograms with your healthcare provider.

🎗️Understand your personal risk factors for breast cancer. These may include family history, genetic mutations (such as BRCA1 and BRCA2), age, hormonal factors, and lifestyle choices.

🎗️If you notice any breast changes or experience unusual symptoms, such as persistent pain, lumps, or skin changes, seek prompt medical attention. Early evaluation and diagnosis are essential.

Remember, early detection is your best defense. Share this information with your loved ones to spread awareness and save lives. 💖

Q: Should I only match with the IP’s who have their embryo tested?
🤔 A: There are some situations where testing is less important, for instance, if the embryos were created using young healthy donor eggs and healthy sperm. Also, if the goal is to give the embryos a shot knowing that both IP and Surrogate don’t want to terminate the pregnancy for any reason.

🧬 Testing can rule out a lot of things, but not everything so having tested embryos can also give us a false sense of security that everything will be fine but failed transfers, miscarriage, and complications are still a possibility even with tested embryos.

👣 We sign up to take on such a huge burden for our IPs so doing what you feel most confident with is key. While having tested embryos may bring a sense of comfort, it’s a personal decision and one that you should choose after doing your research and talking to those who are there to help you through your journey.

✨The entire surrogacy process can take anywhere from 15-20+ months. You can expect the time from filling out your application to embryo transfer can take 8+ months. 🩵💜

The amount of travel required during your journey depends on where the IPs fertility clinic is in relation to you.

You will need to travel to their clinic at least two times, for things such as medical screening and embryo transfer. You may be able to attend monitoring appointments at a clinic closer to you, if the IVF doctor allows.

.✈️ None of the parents our agencies work with have clinics internationally (except for a rare view with embryos in Canada) but in most cases, all travel will be domestic

💸 All costs associated with travel will be paid for by the intended parents, including airfare, hotel, ride service, and meals!

Surrogacy is a remarkable journey that transcends boundaries of faith and embraces the values of love, compassion, and selflessness.💕 Many religions support surrogacy as a means to fulfill the deeply cherished desire of parenthood. It’s a testament to the inclusive and accepting nature of faith.

When it comes to surrogacy, it’s important to listen to your heart and your God. Let go of judgment and embrace understanding, empathy, and acceptance. Each individual’s path may be unique, but what remains constant is the power of love and the desire to create families.

So, let your faith guide you and remind you of the profound teachings of compassion and kindness. Celebrate the diversity of families and the miracles that surrogacy brings. Together, let’s support and uplift one another, as we listen to our hearts and our God on this extraordinary journey of love and hope. ❤️🌈

Within your surrogacy journey lies a carefully orchestrated legal process, ensuring a sturdy foundation for the dreams of both intended parents and surrogate. 💫

If you don’t have an attorney on stand by (like most of us) don’t worry, your agency will give you a list of possible attorneys that can help you review your contract for the journey. Furthermore, the attorney will not come at a cost to the surrogate, as this is already taken care of between IPs and agency. 💼

When it comes time to jump into legal clearance make sure you ask questions and have a full understanding of your surrogacy contracts. Your attorney is there to walk you through the entire contract and answer any questions you may have. 🤝

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 can carry a pregnancy...

...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 is not something they see every day.

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

let's meet...

Sunshine & Shelly

They’ve each been surrogates 3 times…

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

Shelly is creative, ambitious, and next-level kind. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Marketing at FIDM by 19, before becoming a mom and has had a thriving career in the fertility space. Her huge heart and advocacy for gay parents led her to become a surrogate for two sets of dads, a couple in Norway and another couple in LA. 

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 Shelly’s example 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. 

Shelly and Sunshine have helped to bring seven babies into the world, completing four families, across three continents, not including their own!

Now they are using their voices to advocate for and support women in realizing their dreams of creating the most beautiful life they can for their families.

We'll connect you with the

right agency

A surrogacy agency is an organization that matches surrogates with hopeful intended parents who want to have a baby. They screen potential surrogates and parents and  guide them through the entire process, including handling the disbursement of funds to you, and providing support until a short while after delivery.

The agency is responsible for communicating between attorneys, doctors, psychologists and other parties to make sure everyone is in the loop at all times. There are so many parties involved in the delicate emotional, legal and financial process and agency oversight is a must. They make sure all medical bills are taken care of by the trust and escrow so that nothing remains on the surrogates shoulders after delivery.

But, not all surrogacy agencies are created equal.

Some agencies have a better understanding of the process, a better network of professionals, and bigger heart for the surrogates and parents they serve.

That’s where we come in.

Our founders have been surrogates 3 times each, and both have worked closely with various agencies throughout their careers. Sunshine & Shelly know what it’s like to be in your position both as novice first time surrogates and with more experience.

Just take a short quiz to see if you qualify, and we can connect you with the most ethical and trusted agencies that best fit what you’re looking for. We’ll also provide additional resources as you go through the process of helping another family’s dream come true, while significantly brightening the future of your own.

And the best part is…

Our help will never cost you a thing.

Meet our founder...
