A central feature of our surrogacy program is the care we take in the matches between the intended parents and the surrogates. We closely consult with each surrogate to learn about her preferences for whom she would most like to help. Every match is a partnership and a mutual decision built on trust. We make sure our surrogates are fully supported from the match through the birth of the child.
Our founder, Meryl B. Rosenberg, Esq., has been matching and guiding hundreds of surrogates and intended parents since 1993. She understands how deeply personal and life-changing the surrogacy process is for the gestational carriers and intended parents alike. Integrity, expertise, and caring are ARTparenting’s hallmarks. Meryl is admitted to the bar in the District of Columbia. And an added bonus for DC surrogates is we are located in the area!
The amount of compensation may be an important consideration when choosing whether to become a surrogate. The amount of any payments or reimbursements will be based on multiple factors. For more information, please review the Fees and Expenses for Gestational Surrogates. If you'd like to contact us with specific questions, we'll be happy to discuss the financial details and how to get started as a gestational surrogate in DC.
These are some of the basic requirements for becoming a surrogate in DC:
• 21 to 43 years old
• given birth to a child of your own
• financially stable
• healthy with a body mass index (BMI) 32 or less
A gestational surrogate is also known as a gestational carrier. She carries a child conceived through in-vitro fertilization (IVF) using the eggs from an egg donor or the intended mother. The child will not be genetically related to the gestational surrogate who is never actually considered the legal mother.
Becoming a surrogate requires a uniquely capable and nurturing woman — someone who is keenly aware that raising a child is one life’s greatest joys. The desire to share that joy with another family is what motivates our surrogates and is what inspires our work at ARTparenting. For help with your decision, see “Becoming a Surrogate: Is it Right for Me?” and get a closer look by reading personal stories from our surrogates.
