Your opportunity to be a parent is too important to entrust to just any agency. No one knows more about facilitating a successful surrogacy process than CSP. We've been doing this longer than anyone else, so we have more expertise and insight into every aspect of the journey.
We’ve been helping intended parents start and grow their families for four decades, making us the oldest surrogacy agency in operation in the world. We were also the first to help a gay couple welcome a baby over 30 years ago, and continue to serve the LGBTQ community in their surrogacy journeys.
One-of-a-kind matching process
Our screening and matching process is one-of-a-kind and benefits both parents and surrogates. CSP always has a large pool of waiting parents from all over the world, so not only do surrogates have a choice when it comes to selecting intended parents, but the process will go smoother and faster. Parents can rest assured knowing we always are in the process of screening surrogates and selecting only those who meet all of our high criteria.
A team of committed experts
CSP has a large team of surrogacy experts who have been with us for decades, providing incredible support to both surrogates and parents. Cumulatively, we’ve seen it all, and have successfully navigated all the potential bumps that can emerge from this kind of journey. We work and partner with experienced professionals in multiple fields, including counselors, attorneys, and fertility specialists.
Supporting surrogates. Always.
Those who are interested in becoming surrogates have many options, from the tiniest agency to a larger surrogacy program. The resources provided by our well-established agency are numerous, and provide security and peace of mind for all surrogates.
CSP is happy to work with intended parents and surrogates remotely when travel or office visits aren’t possible. Our online system provides 24/7 access to every detail of each case, so that our team, surrogates, and parents can immediately access all the information they need, whenever and wherever they need it.
Each surrogacy journey with CSP begins with a free consultation. We proudly offer a complete review and provide guidance on what to expect with your surrogacy journey.
An online application helps CSP identify the unique needs of all intended parents and surrogates to help guide and assist with initiating the journey to parenthood. Once you have selected CSP, your case manager works with you to create an online profile to allow you to track your progress, manage the required needs, and match with potential surrogates or parents. Intended parents can review the complete medical history for each surrogate, and both parents and surrogates are provided an online portal allowing individual progress tracking.
We provide our parents with peace of mind as they come to truly understand the degree to which our surrogates are screened. At any given time our agency has between 40-60 gestational surrogates undergoing the screening process, which includes psychological screening, medical record review, and a background check. Each surrogate and intended parent will first meet and get to know each other to ensure the match meets the needs of everyone involved.
Our surrogacy agency works with leading fertility doctors, attorneys, psychologists, and psychotherapists. We utilize the expertise of every kind of professional you’ll need on your journey.
Throughout pregnancy and through delivery, many financial considerations must be evaluated. Our financial team ensures transparency throughout the process. Legal contracts, expected financial responsibilities, and trust administration are all overseen and supported by the team at CSP. From beginning to end, a CSP case manager guides, advocates, organizes, and manages all aspects of the surrogacy process, ensuring each intended parent and surrogate receive the highest level of care and attention.
People often pursue private surrogacy because the cost seems lower than that of a professional agency. Private surrogacy may include an arrangement with a stranger who has offered their services as a surrogate through a website. The surrogate might also be a relative or friend.
Even if the surrogate is a trusted friend or family member, there are specific legal, financial, and emotional parameters to meet. Contracts must provide legal protection for everyone in the surrogacy arrangement. Even so, private surrogacy arrangements offer few safety nets. Private or independent surrogacy often lacks the emotional, legal, and medical support that a full-service agency can provide.
We recommend you take advantage of our free consultation to discuss the option of private surrogacy with an experienced CSP case manager. We know the surrogacy world inside and out, and can provide valuable insight about the pros and cons of all options available to you.
An agency should provide a complete and comprehensive explanation of the entire process of surrogacy, as well as how the agency functions from the beginning all the way to post-delivery.
The CSP Promise: CSP case managers are with you from the initial consultation and assist at every part of the process.
An agency should allow you to review their policies and the steps in the surrogacy process, as well as other pertinent information.
The CSP Promise: The CSP website offers detailed information about every aspect of the surrogacy progress. We will provide you with any information you requested.
An agency should provide you with clear, complete, and transparent financials for a surrogacy journey. Notations of “cost to be determined” or “not evaluated” make it impossible to accurately compare costs across agencies.
The CSP Promise: CSP initially provides a transparent and complete financial estimate, and then we work with a financial coordinator to create your specific cost sheet.
When a successful surrogacy agency is still in business after many years, it’s likely because they do things the right way.
The CSP Promise: CSP was the first surrogacy agency, and for more than 40 years it has abided by its mission to create families for all kinds of parents.
Any legitimate agency should provide testimonials from the parents and surrogates they’ve worked with.
The CSP Promise: Many CSP clients come to us through referrals from previous clients. Some of our clients have returned, requesting that we help them with additional pregnancies to grow their families.
An agency should have experienced leaders on staff and access to professionals in the legal and medical fields.
The CSP Promise: Our parents and surrogates trust us with a great deal of personal and sensitive information. CSP is proud of its professional and ethical standards.
