The tri-state area provides top-rated fertility clinics and premier local surrogacy agencies such as Reproductive Possibilities (located right in NJ!) to help intended parents become parents safely and easily, close to home.
If you're considering surrogacy and you live in Connecticut, New Jersey or New York, you have amazing resources local to you.
Best-in-class IVF clinics. The tristate area is home to many top-rated fertility clinics, including RMA NJ, New England Fertility, The New York Fertility Center, Generation Next Fertility and more. Intended parents can work with a clinic close to home.
Local surrogate mothers. Connecticut and New Jersey (and now NY!) are surrogate friendly states, as well as the states surrounding the tristate area. This means that intended parents can be matched with a gestational carrier who lives within driving distance, which can help build your bond and reduces travel costs.
Local surrogacy agency. Reproductive Possibilities is located in Montvale, NJ - easy to access from CT, NY and NJ. You'll meet with Melissa Brisman, RP's founder and parent through surrogacy, who is a leader in surrogacy and reproductive law.
Melissa Brisman, the founder of Reproductive Possibilities, was her own first surrogacy client. She has personal experience as an intended parent – understanding all that goes into a surrogacy journey – from choosing a fertility clinic to having the right agency and legal support.
Because of her strong ties to the local community and tristate area, Melissa has developed strong partnerships with many clinics in CT, NJ and NY; many of these clinics will recommend patients seeking surrogacy reach out and speak to Melissa about their journey to parenthood.
At Reproductive Possibilities, intended parents have the option of choosing the type of support they desire – from full journey management to more of an ad hoc basis.
RP will work with you to personalize your surrogacy journey, partner with your local clinic, and keep costs down by keeping your journey close to home.
This is an estimated total expense for a successful IVF pregnancy with Reproductive Possibilities. Because every journey is unique, the expenses associated with each intended parent will vary.
This total cost does not include medical costs for the IVF procedure and pregnancy, which will be paid directly to the intended parents' clinic. In some instances, the intended parents' insurance policies may cover these expenses.
For a more detailed cost estimate, please call our office at 201.505.0078.
Matching with a gestational carrier – or surrogate mother – is one of the most exciting times in your journey.
The timeline for a successful match with a surrogate can vary, depending on your personal preferences. For example, if you live in Connecticut, New Jersey or New York and you'd like to work with a local surrogate, the surrogate's location may affect how long it takes to find a match. Some areas, including the northeast, are desirable for gestational carriers.
Finding the right match is an important first step, as we want you to feel comfortable and confident moving forward. Once we find a surrogate that matches the criteria you shared with the RP team, we will share their profile for you to review. The surrogate profile consists of the potential surrogate’s application, photos of her and her family and additional information about her to help intended parents get to know her and what brought her to surrogacy. Within a couple of days, you can decide to move forward with that surrogate or continue searching.
If you choose to move forward, we will schedule a time to introduce all parties — either on the phone or through video chat — to determine a good fit. A member of the Reproductive Possibilities team will also be on this call and will help guide the conversation, asking questions to help everyone to get to know each other better.
After the initial meeting, both parties will let Reproductive Possibilities know if they would like to move forward. If all parties agree, the surrogate will be officially matched with you.
