Giving Tree Surrogacy & Egg Donation is a full-service agency working with intended parents wanting to have children, but need a bit of assistance from phenomenal women like yourself. Many times, these parents are overcoming fertility challenges and need the assistance of a surrogate to safely create their family. In other cases, there are LGBTQ+ couples who require extra help to realize their dreams of parenthood. People requiring help from surrogates include heterosexual couples with infertility challenges, single men and women, and gay couples. As a surrogate, you play an incredible role in changing the lives of these families.

Surrogates are women between the ages of 21 - 38 who have had at least one healthy full-term pregnancy. These phenomenal women will go through an 18-month journey that includes psychological and medical screenings, legal process, injectable hormone medication, and an embryo transfer procedure. Surrogates receive a generous compensation for their time and effort.

Why become a surrogate?

Many of the people seeking the assistance of a surrogate are experiencing infertility, same-sex couples, and others who cannot biologically have a child of their own. For these couples, surrogates are one of the few opportunities for them to have a child and grow their family.

By becoming a surrogate, you are giving one of the greatest gifts one can give. You will be a part of something bigger than you, changing lives forever, including your own.
