Gestational surrogacy uses an embryo created outside of the surrogate mother’s body, and the embryo is then implanted into the surrogate’s uterus. Using IVF, intended parents can establish a biological relationship to the child by using their own sperm and/or eggs. The eggs are fertilized in an IVF facility outside of the woman’s body, and the embryo is transferred to the gestational carrier’s uterus. Intended parents may also use donor eggs and/or donor sperm to make their embryos.
Every family is unique in how they are created. We offer customizable options that cater to the unique needs of our intended parents and surrogates.
Our team — led by founder and parent through surrogacy, Melissa Brisman — is dedicated to making your dream of building your family a reality with a supportive and caring team. We are advocates for our intended parents and surrogates, and we explore every opportunity to make your surrogacy journey an affordable and enjoyable experience.
We work with intended parents from all types of backgrounds — heterosexual or LGBTQ+ individuals or couples, domestic or international. Regardless of your culture or background, we support all intended parents with equal care and consideration to fulfill their dreams of having a family.
Intended parents are often referred to Reproductive Possibilities because of our outstanding reputation and personal experience with the surrogacy process. Our founder, Melissa Brisman, started her own family through surrogacy, and has been instrumental in the establishment of new reproductive laws and practices throughout the world.
The decision to become a surrogate mother demonstrates a woman’s strength, selflessness and humanity for those who wish to start or grow a family. If approved to become a surrogate mother, our agency will support you through every step of the journey and make sure to match you with intended parents who share your values.
Reproductive Possibilities works exclusively with gestational carriers, which requires the process of IVF. In this process, an egg and sperm are combined outside of the body. The embryo created is then transferred into the surrogate’s uterus, in hopes of achieving a viable pregnancy. The embryos used in this process can be created using the biology of both, one or none of the intended parents, depending on their fertility, sexual orientation and personal preference. With gestational surrogacy, surrogate mothers are not genetically related to the baby.
Our expertise has spanned six continents around the world and has helped many people build their families through surrogacy. Our work in making family dreams come true has led us to be featured in numerous publications and talk shows since our establishment over 20 years ago, such as Good Morning America, The New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Fox News, Anderson Cooper and CBS Live, among many others.
