Begin by exploring our website to find out how our surrogacy program works – including the financial considerations. Or, if you'd like to contact us, we will be happy to answer any of your questions about Virginia surrogacy.
ARTparenting's founder, Meryl B. Rosenberg, Esq., has worked with hundreds of gestational surrogates* and intended parents since 1993. At ARTparenting we handle every detail, from your first contact with us through the birth of the child. We make sure our surrogates are kept informed, cared for, and comfortable with the entire surrogacy process.
Integrity, personal attention, and hands-on guidance are our hallmarks. Meryl has 20 years of experience and success helping families grow and a well-established reputation in the field of reproductive law. She personally meets with every surrogate and every client to ensure that each surrogate mother receives all the support she needs. Read what others have said about ARTparenting.

Our surrogates are consulted about who they would like to work with — whether they prefer intended parents who are local or overseas, single or married, same-sex couples, families that already have a child, or another preference. Every match is a mutual decision and a true partnership.
ART stands for Assisted Reproductive Technologies. Parenting alludes to the intended parents we help, and to the exceptional women, our gestational surrogates, who help make the dream of building a family come true.
The decision to become a surrogate mother is a life-changing choice. It requires a level of commitment that only a generous, capable and nurturing individual will be able to meet. We know that raising children is one of the ultimate joys in life. A willingness to share that joy with others is truly admirable, and is what inspires ARTparenting to bring surrogates and intended parents together.
A gestational surrogate (also known as a gestational carrier or a surrogate mother) carries a child conceived through in-vitro fertilization (IVF). This means the child will not be genetically related to the surrogate.
These are some of the basic requirements for becoming a surrogate mother in Virginia:
• 21 to 42 years old.
• the mother of one or more children.
• enjoy being pregnant.
• healthy with a body mass index (BMI) less than 34.
An important factor in your decision to become a surrogate may be financial. In order to qualify you must be financially stable to minimize the burden on you and your family. The amount of any ancillary expenses is based on multiple circumstances. For more information, please review in general Fees and Expenses for Gestational Carriers or contact us directly for details.
We are grateful for your interest. If you would like to learn more about participating in our Virginia surrogacy program, we would like to hear from you. To find out you qualify, please fill out our simple Surrogate Inquiry Form or call toll-free: 888-855-BABY.
