Surrogates defined.

Our surrogates are among the top 1% of our applicants, and we’re proud of our industry-leading compensation package. Our surrogates use words such as life changing, fulfilling and purposeful to describe their experience with our program.

Surrogates are women, who are already mothers, and understand what it takes to carry and care for a pregnancy. Over 50% of Growing Generations surrogates return to do additional surrogacies because being a surrogate ranks within the top 3 accomplishments of their lives.

While money isn’t the sole motivation for Growing Generations surrogates, the compensation for being a surrogate helps them to achieve things that might not have been possible otherwise. We are proud to be part of the difference our surrogates make.

Be a Surrogate

What is a Surrogate?

sur·ro·gate

/ˈsərəɡətˈ/

A surrogate is a woman, who carries a child for individuals and couples (“Intended Parents”) that cannot carry a baby of their own.

While there are many criteria to be a surrogate, the basic qualifications to become a surrogate are having had at least one healthy pregnancy, being physically/mentally healthy, financially stable, and able to commit to the timeframe of the process (approximately 18 to 24 months from application to delivery).

Gestational surrogates (also known as gestational carriers or “GC’s”) are surrogates that are not related to the child(ren) they carry, rather an embryo belonging to the intended parents is implanted inside the gestational carrier via IVF.

Egg Donors defined.

Our egg donors are creative, intelligent and charismatic women who are drawn to making a difference in the world. One way they accomplish this is by helping couple or individual have a child. We have coordinated thousands of egg donation cycles and have enjoyed watching these young women make such a big impact so early in their lives.

Growing Generations egg donors are among the top 1% of donors in the industry. We look not just for women that are healthy, educated and driven, we also look for women committed to putting in the work and effort it takes to become an egg donor.

We seek out egg donors from all over the country and the world, searching far and wide for the best and most committed egg donors we can find.

What is an Egg Donor?

egg do·nor

/ˈāg dō-nər\ˈ/

An egg donor is woman who donates her eggs (also referred to as ova or ovum) for others (“intended parents”) to use to achieve a pregnancy of their own. An egg donor can be someone known by the intended parents, such as a family member or friend (“known donor”. Or an egg donor can be previously unknown to the intended parents (“unknown donor”), as is often the case in commercial egg donation.

Commercial egg donation is where a donor is represented by a specialized agency (“egg donor agency”) and intended parents select the egg donor from the egg donor agency’s database. In general, the egg donor and intended parents sign a contract together stipulating the rights and responsibilities of each party.

In commercial egg donation, egg donors are typically between the ages of 21 and 30 years of age during their peak fertility years. They receive compensation and can generally do up to 6 egg donation cycles if they choose to do so.

Surrogacy defined.

Our surrogates are among the top 1% of our applicants, and we’re proud of our industry-leading compensation package. Our surrogates use words such as life changing, fulfilling, and purposeful to describe their experience with our program.

Surrogates are women, who have had uncomplicated, healthy pregnancies and deliveries of their own, and understand what it takes to carry and care for a pregnancy. Over 50% of Growing Generations surrogates return to do additional surrogacies because being a surrogate ranks within the top 3 accomplishments of their lives.

While money isn’t the sole motivation for Growing Generations surrogates, the compensation for being a surrogate helps them to achieve things that might not have been possible otherwise. We are proud to be part of the difference our surrogates make.

Find a Surrogate

What is Surrogacy?

sur·ro·ga·cy

/ˈsərəɡəsēˈ/

Surrogacy is a process where a woman (“surrogate” or “gestational carrier”) carries and delivers a baby for someone else (“intended parent”). Most cases utilize gestational surrogacy and assisted reproduction to achieve this result.

Gestational surrogacy means the surrogate is not biologically related to the child(ren) she carries. The surrogate is impregnated through in vitro fertilization (“IVF”) with the embryo(s) created from the sperm and/or eggs of the intended parents. This medical process is collectively referred to as assisted reproduction technology (“ART), or third party reproduction when involving a surrogate and/or donor.

From Real Families

Hear from real families as they discuss the surrogacy process and their personal experiences with Growing Generations. Building families and creating cherished legacies are our core values.

Egg Donation defined.

We provide a hands-on approach to the egg donation process. From egg donor selection to medical screening to the egg retrieval, and finally wrapping up your case, we are with you the entire way.

As with our surrogates, we take fewer than 1% of all egg donor applicants. We provide photos of the egg donor, ranging from childhood to adulthood, along with videos and five pages of profile information on the donor.

Unique to Growing Generations, we do fertility testing on all of our donors and offer a full refund of our agency fee if your chosen egg donor never begins her cycle medication.

We have donors from across the country and the world, including a special program made up of professional fashion models. If you cannot find what you are looking for, we even offer a service to go out and find the perfect donor for you.

What is an Egg Donation?

egg do·na·tion

/ˈāg dō-ˈnā-shənˈ/

Egg donation is the process by which a woman (“Egg Donor”) donates her eggs for use by individuals or couples (“intended parents”) to achieve a pregnancy of their own.

The egg donor’s eggs are retrieved by means of a medical procedure known as transvaginal aspiration, whereby the eggs are gently suctioned with a catheter from the donor’s follicles.

In commercial egg donation, generally all of the eggs retrieved will go to the intended parent whose fertility physician will fertilize those eggs with sperm belonging to the intended parents.

After the embryos have matured and tested (if applicable), in general 1 or 2 embryos will be implanted into the intended parent or the intended Parent’s
