What is a surrogate advocate?

We take being surrogate advocates very seriously. Being a surrogate advocate isn’t a gimmick. It’s not a side-hustle. It’s everything. You are everything to us.

A surrogate advocate is a person or group who’s sole purpose is to advocate for brave, amazing moms who decide to become surrogates.

Why do I need a surrogate advocate?

While most agencies say they “advocate” for the surrogate, do they really? In our experience, it’s mostly talk. 

But if you think about it, it’s just human nature. Most agencies are intended parent focused, because that’s the ultimate client they’re designed to serve. And that’s okay! The purpose of a surrogacy agency is to help intended parents achieve their dream of having a baby, and we think that’s an absolutely noble purpose. 

But far too often, the surrogate’s interests can come second to intended parents, so a true surrogate advocate helps balance that equation.

Are all surrogate advocates the same?

No, we don’t think so. If someone truly advocates for surrogates, the interests and experience of the surrogate will be their singular focus. Their organization should be structured in such a way where their sole motivation is to advocate for the surrogate. 

A true surrogate advocacy group should not be owned by a surrogacy agency or umbrella company that owns surrogacy agencies. 

Why is it important who owns a surrogate advocacy group?

Most surrogacy agencies have long lists of intended parents waiting to be matched with their perfect surrogate. If an advocacy group is owned by an agency, it would be difficult for them to truly encourage any surrogate who enters their process to consider all of her options when they really want her to work with their agency—regardless of whether that’s the best fit for her

By remaining independent, we don’t have any motivations to show a surrogate candidate one agency over another. We simply allow every surrogate to have options and make fully informed decisions on what’s best for her!

We believe all journeys should be

surrogate focused.

We know the ultimate reason for surrogacy is to fulfill a dream of placing a happy, healthy baby into the arms of hopeful intended parents. 

But a surrogacy journey doesn’t just fulfill the dreams of intended parents… it also fulfills the dreams of a surrogate and her family, too.

There’s room for more than one dream to come true, and our philosophy is that a surrogacy journey that puts the surrogate as the top priority will produce a better outcome—for everyone.

Surrogates who feel respected, honored, and valued in the process have an easier time understanding and meeting the expectations of all parties involved in the journey, including the IP’s, the IVF center, and the agency. 

Our partner agencies should always adhere to the following basic standards:

Allow the surrogate to set matching expectations, and honors her wishes with respect to matching.

Benefit package is thoughtful, considerate, and fair to the surrogate.

Communicate early and often, keeping the surrogate in the loop throughout the journey, including the screening process.

Ensure 3rd party escrow account (not in-house) is fully funded prior to start of medications, and at all times throughout the journey.

Ownership is clear and transparent.

Allow the surrogate to set matching expectations, and honors her wishes with respect to matching.

(it’s also super important to know, we’re not trying to create Divas here, just helping surrogates be considered fairly ❤️)
