Most intended parents are asked to independently find a surrogate through one of many surrogate agencies. This often means dealing with another set of personnel, managers and attorneys. Once a surrogate candidate is found, she and her partner must still pass medical and psychological screening in order to proceed. A good percentage of surrogates fail to meet medical criteria and are discontinued at this point, requiring the intended parents to start all over again and bear additional costs.
When combined with the personnel of the fertility clinic and for some intended patients an egg donor agency, the process becomes unduly complicated and daunting.
In contrast, Premium Surrogacy provides an integrative approach working solely with Santa Monica Fertility and Dr. John Jain. Through this relationship, Premium Surrogates are all pre-screened so that you can be matched without delay. All surrogates undergo background checks, home study visits, medical clearance by Dr. Jain, and medical clearance by an independent High-Risk Obstetrician and Psychologist. Surrogates are also pre-screened and qualified for health insurance.
This integrative approach continues through fertility treatment into pregnancy and delivery whereby the same team continues to monitor the surrogate and interface with you and the obstetrician in order to provide a seamless and enjoyable pregnancy and birth experience. Throughout the process, you can count on our staff to provide you with professional support and answers and to help you navigate any difficulties. One doctor, one team, one seamless experience.
