Being a Surrogate Mother

ISC is one of the best surrogacy agencies in California and the nation for anyone who wants to become a surrogate! We recognize and appreciate the self-sacrificing and caring attitude it takes in order to become a surrogate mother and help intended parents in the creation of families. In fact, 80% of the ISC staff have been surrogates, too. We want to thank you for considering surrogacy and for taking the time to read the information on this website.

Our surrogates in California and other states who are willing and able to help a family in such a personal way are selfless and unique women who can offer a gift that will truly make a difference in the lives of the intended parents she helps. ISC treats our surrogates with great respect because we sincerely believe they deserve it. Please read our surrogate information and then feel free to contact us should you want to become a surrogate or if you have further questions regarding the surrogacy process.

First, Some Surrogacy Definitions

Gestational surrogacy involves an intended mother (or an egg donor), an intended father (or a sperm donor) and a surrogate. Through in vitro fertilization (IVF), eggs provided by the intended mother (or egg donor) are fertilized with the sperm of the intended father (or sperm donor). The resulting 3-5 day old embryos are then transferred to the surrogate who carries and gives birth to the child/children.

Traditional surrogacy involves a surrogate mother who uses her own eggs and is either artificially inseminated with the semen of the intended father or sperm donor. She then carries and gives birth to the child. (A traditional surrogate may also act as the egg donor: after her own donated eggs are harvested and fertilized, the embryos are transferred back into the surrogate’s uterus. She then carries and gives birth to the child.)

Surrogate mother is a woman who bears a child on behalf of another person or a couple, typically via artificial insemination or in vitro fertilization.

Gestational carrier is a woman who has a fertilized egg from another woman implanted in her womb, so as to bear a child on behalf of the other woman.
