We'll always be here to answer your question- and that starts now.

NewGen Families does not require you to be vaccinated for Covid-19 at this time. However, not being vaccinated will result in longer wait times for a possible match, as most clinics and Intended Parents are requesting and requiring that Surrogates be fully vaccinated.
As a NewGen Surrogate, you will be matched with a Case Manager who will guide, nurture, and advise you on this incredible journey.
NewGen Families follow ASRM (American Society for Reproductive Medicine) guidelines to ensure that Intended Parents are working with a Surrogate who has minimal to low risks during their pregnancy. This is a very expensive process for our Intended Parents. Therefore, we want to limit any additional costs that may occur during a surrogacy pregnancy.
Navigating a surrogacy journey without using an agency can be risky. By using an agency, you are working with experts (experienced Surrogates) who work with a Dream Team to make your journey as smooth as possible.

Our expert insurance brokers will purchase a Surrogacy friendly policy for you if you do not already have one

Surrogacy is an arrangement, often supported by a legal agreement, whereby a woman agrees to delivery/labour on behalf of another couple or person, who will become the child’s parent(s) after birth.

The 14th Amendment states that “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States…”. This means that once you have collected your birth certificates from Vital Records, you can then apply for your child’s passport with the US Department Of State.

If there are no complications, parents and their babies are usually discharged from the hospital within 72 hours after the birth. The next step is to book a time with Vital Records to collect copies of your child’s birth certificate. Once you have a copy of your child’s birth certificate, you can apply for a US passport. For international IPs, this is when your home attorney should trigger the next steps in acquiring local citizenship and a passport.

The number of times you travel to the USA is entirely up to you. The only requirement is that you come to the US to collect your baby. Some IPs travel to the US to deposit their sperm while others chose to ship their sperm from their home country. Some IPs will choose to travel for the 10-week scan or 20-week scan, whilst other IPs only travel for the birth. This is a personal decision, and we are happy to guide and support you with your choice. 

At NewGen, we are proud to assist and guide our HIV+ Intended Parents safely and securely as they realise their dreams of becoming parents. Parenthood is achievable for HIV+ individuals and our experienced case management and medical teams have made this possible for many rainbow families. To discuss the process and learn about the options available to HIV+ Intended Parents, book a complimentary consultation to discover the options.

Yes. Upon being matched with a surrogate and an egg donor, your Independent ART Attorney will act on your behalf and negotiate with their attorneys and subsequently draft an agreement. The agreement covers topics such as financial compensation to the surrogate/donor, medical and psychological screening requirements and the relinquishment of all legal rights to your child.

NewGen will always match you with a surrogate in a state where you can accomplish all the necessary legal work in order to ensure that you are granted your parental rights. Once you are matched with a surrogate, we introduce a specialised experienced Independent ART Attorney who will negotiate contracts on your behalf. They will draft and negotiate the terms of a Gestational Carrier Agreement with your Surrogate’s independent attorney and will also work with you to obtain Pre-birth orders, custody orders, judgements and acknowledgements of paternity and adoption should they be required.

This all depends on whether the donor has opted to be a known donor. During your initial consultation with us, we talk in depth about the egg donor selection process and will support you in finding the right donor to assist you. 

All of the donors in our US program are genetically screened. The sperm provider, whether it is the Intended Father or a Sperm Donor, will also undergo genetic screening. Your treating doctor will assess the results of both screening tests before a match is confirmed.

Selecting an Egg Donor is one of the most important decisions that you will make as an Intended Parent. The decision involves both individual preferences and important medical decisions. Your Newgen case manager will help you access our extensive donor database and ensure that you find a donor that is medically suitable and meets your preferences.

Any remaining embryos will continue to be stored at your IVF Clinic until you are ready to add to your family. Newgen will be ready to help you grow your family when you are.

Your child will be born in the state where your surrogate resides.

Yes, you will need a specialist US attorney to represent you throughout your entire journey. Your NewGen Case Manager will introduce you to a highly experienced ART Attorney to assist you with the legal aspects of your journey. If you are an International Intended Parent, we strongly advise you to engage with an attorney in your own country to clarify the rules of your home country and to ensure a smooth return process. Before your embryo transfer milestone, you will also need to update your will.

Yes. Our team has navigated many surrogacy journeys for single Intended Parents. In the past year, the industry has witnessed a huge surge in single IPs becoming parents via surrogacy.

The process begins with a complimentary consultation with one of our case managers, where we learn more about your family building goals and discuss how we can help you achieve them. When you are ready to move forward, you enter a formal agreement with NewGen Families and the process begins. Your dedicated case manager will support you from the first consultation to the day you bring your baby home.

The relationship between a Surrogate and the Intended Parents is beautiful and unique. At Newgen families, we aim to create matches between surrogates and Intended Parents with similar communication styles and expected communication levels. In doing so, we encourage at least one weekly contact with your surrogate. It is our hope that over time your relationship will blossom.
