Words from our surrogates

“To the women out there considering giving the blessing of family to intended parents, it is an honor and privilege to get to know you and help you on your path. I know there is so much to think about when making the leap to become a surrogate, and I was once in your shoes.”

Shoshannah, Hatch’s Surrogacy Match Coordinator and 4x surrogate

“After researching surrogacy, I applied to two programs. After going to the first agency, I didn’t like the environment. It wasn’t open or inviting. I didn’t want to feel like I was doing a job. I wanted it to be more like I'm doing a helpful thing. 

That was the vibe I got from the second, at Hatch. The environment was inviting, with people that I felt like I could relate with and talk to. It was a good, family, fun environment and not a job-related one.

I didn’t expect it to be so close-knit and being able to get on and kind of chitchat together with other surrogates. I didn’t expect any of that. And then also, emotional help is there if needed and I didn’t expect to have that as well. I didn’t need it, but just knowing that it was there was reassuring.”

Zulema, Hatch surrogate

“My overall experience was so wonderful, I was a surrogate for the same family again. I love that Sho and her team came to as many appointments as possible. That’s a personal touch. They're always in contact. Even though I am six weeks delivered from the second child, I still get emails checking in on me. It's super sweet. I feel like they care for me. 

“Sho always has her phone next to her so if you need anything, she’s right there. I delivered very early in the morning and Sho texted me right back after I let her know of my delivery. They’re super responsive and helpful no matter what time of day. They even have surrogate mocktail parties and zoom calls to share experiences. And there’s a Facebook page that only previous or current surrogates are on. We’ll post photos or sticky thoughts on someone’s transfer day. It’s just another way we stay connected and feel supported.”

"It’s the most rewarding, selfless thing that anyone can do. Long before I met my husband, I offered to do surrogacy for a family friend, however she was able to give birth herself. But after my husband and I had our daughter together I looked into it again. I loved being pregnant and would love to do something like that for somebody else.

If anyone is considering being a surrogate, I’d tell them to go for it. Absolutely. I’ve already referred a couple of people to Hatch. There’s not anything I would have changed about my experience."

Britney, Hatch surrogate

Work with the program that established best practices and ethical standards across the field

Unfortunately, there are many small and large agencies out there that cut corners. We've established and stay faithful to very high standards, which are still considered best practices for the field. For instance, we’re extremely thorough in how we screen surrogates to ensure that they’re doing this for the right reasons, and not because they need the money or feel pressured into it. If you’re looking for a hands-on, supportive, rewarding human experience, you’ve come to the right place.

Bring joy into a family’s life through the gift of parenthood

In helping to bring a child into the world, you are bringing the impossible into a family’s life. You’ll be recommended to intended parents who have passed our screening process and who are a good fit for you. We take many factors into consideration in order to create the best possible match. For example, as a surrogate do you want to match with an LGBTQ+ family? Do you want to match with a woman who has a medical condition who otherwise cannot have children? Do you want to match with someone who will keep in touch after the surrogacy? Do you want to help first time parents or carry a sibling? Read about one surrogate's journey, today!

Join a close-knit community that believes having a family is a human right

From Facebook Groups and Zoom Calls to online surrogate mocktail parties, you’ll be joining an organization that supports people regardless of their walk of life. Our intended parents range from heterosexual couples to same-sex partners, single men and women, married or not, and other members of the LGBTQ+ community. We work with celebrities and royalty, as well as with people who have no other options and who need financial support. We work hard to make sure that we maximize the odds of having a family for everyone, regardless of their background.
