The GG Value
Client service is our number one priority.
At Growing Generations, we make it safer, easier and more enjoyable for individuals and couples, surrogates, donors and professionals to grow families through assisted reproduction.
Our program has been 100% successful for our clients in all the key areas that matter the most: legal, insurance, and surrogate matching.
In addition, we have an infrastructure that allows us to provide ongoing innovation, expertise, and support. Let’s take a look at how we help you to become a parent through surrogacy.
Your surrogate will be fully screened and cleared before you fund for your journey. If your surrogate does not pass her screening, you will not be financially responsible for any of it. The screenings include:
- Full medical evaluation and testing (including drug and nicotine tests)
- Psychological testing and evaluation
- Criminal background history
- Insurance approval
- Phone and in-person interviews
Insurance is a complex issue, and, if not handled correctly, it can result in enormous financial exposure to clients and surrogates. This is why GG employs a multi-pronged approach to insurance which has resulted in 100% coverage in all of our surrogacy maternity cases to date.
For international clients who do not have insurance for the care of their newborn, there are insurance and payment options available to minimize financial risks.
Protecting our clients during the surrogacy process and ensuring that they are named the parents of their child is the primary goal of our legal team, and one they have delivered 100% of the time. The attorneys that GG refers its clients to provide a full-service approach that will assist you with all legal needs related to surrogacy, parental orders, birth certificates, family planning documents, and passports for international clients.
While we are committed to providing the highest level of human interaction, we are also committed to providing technology to make the process the most efficient for our clients.
