Become a Surrogate

Help Realize Dreams

Being a Surrogate with SDSC

As a surrogate, you give the most extraordinary gift. When you help someone else build a family, you become an integral part of realizing a dream that is otherwise beyond their reach. We hope it will be one of the most fulfilling adventures of your life.

So what’s it like to be a surrogate? Every surrogate pregnancy experience is unique, but most surrogates report joy in sharing their pregnancy with the intended parents. Additionally, they express happiness and fulfillment in helping their intended parents’ dream become a reality.

Why do women decide to become surrogates? Every surrogate has her own answer to this question and they are extremely varied! For some, it’s because they know someone affected by infertility. For others, it’s because they feel strongly about helping a same-sex couple build a family. But one reason we hear over and over again is a strong desire to help intended parents drop the “intended” and become actual parents.

Whether you are just considering becoming a surrogate or you and your family have already decided to start a surrogacy journey, San Diego Surrogacy Center is here to be your advocate, resource and guide through the process.
