You are making an important decision. Whether you're here because you want to have a child or because you want to be a surrogate and help someone else start a family, you've come to the right place.

Near and Far

We are committed to helping families grow around the world. The Surrogacy Center works with families in our home states of Minnesota and Wisconsin, as well as families from New York, California, and any state in between.  People from as far away as Paris and Tokyo and Frederiksberg have also chosen to begin their journey as parents in the midwest.  We are happy to arrange language interpreters as needed by our clients.

Gay and Straight

Families come in many different forms. We want to help the dream of parenthood through surrogacy become a reality for all individuals and couples who seek it.  We recognize that every surrogacy journey is unique and we respect our clients' individual differences.

Safe, Legal and Professional

The Surrogacy Center was established in 2002 by three of the attorneys of The Law Center for Children and Families who wished to establish a safe, legal, and professional arena for surrogacy arrangements.  We are proud to serve you with a combination of professionalism and commitment to responsive service and support. We personally meet with all of our Intended Parents and Gestational Carriers, and we love to stay in touch with the families we help to create.

**Announcing our new Minnesota Office and our new Executive Director**


Exciting things are happening at The Surrogacy Center, and we want to share some important news with you! Due to the continued growth in our organization and an ever increasing demand for the important services we provide, we felt it was time to expand our services into a new area, while still retaining an office in our hometown of Madison, WI. Therefore, as of June 1, 2017, we have opened a new office in the Twin Cities!

We are thrilled to announce that our new location will adeptly accommodate our growing program and will help to serve an even larger group of clients in the midwest and beyond. The new office, located a short distance from both St. Paul and Minneapolis and a 1/2 hour from the Minneapolis International Airport, will help us reach out to an even wider base of communities interested in surrogacy services. There are so many positive attributes to having a location in the Twin Cities, including but not limited to the convenience of a large metro area, an international airport to serve clients across the country and overseas, a large and thriving GLBTQ community, and a number of top-notch assisted reproduction clinics. We cannot wait to begin!

We have just hired our new Executive Director, Clare Sorman, who is enthusiastic to start reaching out to existing and potential clients in order to introduce herself and get started with assisting you in reaching your dream of building a family through surrogacy. As a consummate "people person," Clare has almost 20 years of experience working in client service and non-profit organizations, where above all she values the creation of positive client relationships that result in the best possible outcomes for all parties involved. She will work hard to find the perfect match between intended parents and gestational carriers and will commit to your situation with the utmost standard of care and professionalism. Clare is happy to be working with Carol Gapen and Judy Sperling-Newton, who created The Surrogacy Center in 2002 and have between them decades of experience in assisted reproduction law.

If you or anyone you know is considering surrogacy as an option for building a family, or if you are interested in serving as a gestational carrier, please do not hesitate to contact us.
