Surrogacy

Surrogacy

If gestational surrogacy is the best choice for starting your family, RBA can assist as you travel that path. We’re dedicated to helping families have babies through state-of-the art technology and comprehensive fertility planning.

At RBA, we understand how emotionally, financially and physically taxing starting a family through surrogacy can be. We bring medical precision and human compassion to our work with couples and singles. We are involved in every step, donor egg and sperm, in vitro fertilization (IVF), and embryo transfer to the carrier.

What is surrogacy?

Gestational surrogacy involves partnering with a surrogate mother who – as a gestational carrier – is in no way biologically or genetically related to the child she is carrying. She is the provider of a nurturing environment in which the baby can grow throughout the gestational period. In other words, a traditional surrogate donates her own egg for the pregnancy, while a gestational surrogate does not.

When should you use a surrogate mother?

You might consider gestational surrogacy if:

  • A female partner cannot carry the pregnancy because her uterus has been removed due to cervical or uterine cancer, fibroids or endometriosis
  • A female partner has an intact uterus but cannot carry the pregnancy due to physical or emotional factors such as severe diabetes, depression or other
  • You’re a single male, or a gay couple utilizing a donor egg

Our role in your surrogacy

RBA works with you and your chosen surrogate mother to ensure a smooth, step by step process: from the time you select your surrogate, and throughout your gestational surrogacy experience. We are proud to partner with some of the top surrogacy agencies in the state to make egg and sperm harvesting, IVF and embryo implantation a success.
