Most of our post-surrogacy services involve counseling and guidance to navigate the parameters of the relationship between the intended parents, surrogate, and child. There is no right answer but discovering what is best for each individual circumstance takes much consideration. We are here to help you discover the best arrangement which may mean in some instances, the intended parents and surrogate may agree to part ways permanently.

This decision does not have to be made at the outset of the surrogacy journey, but we are here to help guide you as you consider the best option for your family.
