Information for Intended Parents
An intended parent is a patient who has a medical indication to use a gestational surrogate (or “carrier”) to carry a pregnancy, achieved either with their own eggs or with those of an egg donor.
Information for Gestational Carriers
Choosing to become a gestational carrier (also known as surrogacy) for another family is truly a selfless endeavor. You will be bringing the gift of a child into a family that is unable to do so on their own. We do not recruit Gestational Carriers here at IVF New Jersey, but we can refer you to a list of reputable agencies to help you begin the process.
Information for Single and Gay (LGBT) Patients
Every year, thousands of singles and gay and lesbian couples attempt fertility treatment in order to start a family. This process can require complex reproductive procedures and the involvement of multiple third-party agents like surrogacy agencies, donor egg agencies and sperm banks, and reproductive attorneys. At IVF New Jersey, we’ve streamlined the process to bring all the pieces together in order to make your journey toward building a family as easy and successful as possible.
