The Surrogacy Center was founded in 2002 in Madison, Wisconsin. It is owned by Lynn Bodi (who speaks French), Carol Gapen and Judith Sperling-Newton (who speaks Spanish), law partners and founders of The Law Center for Children & Families. After years of providing legal services related to surrogacy, the three attorneys became aware of the need for a reputable, safe and professional surrogacy center... a place in Wisconsin where individuals and couples could come and know they were in capable hands.

The Surrogacy Center's clients are individuals and couples, gay and straight, who choose to come to the friendly Midwestern center where they know they will be thoughtfully matched and given personal attention by experienced and caring staff. Past clients have written many glowing reviews, based on the unique combination of professionalism and individual treatment that is offered. The 100+ babies that have been born through the program have changed and will continue to change many lives, both now and for decades to come, yet the staff still knows every surrogate, every Intended Parent, and every baby by name.


ASRM Guideline

The Surrogacy Center Policy

Gestational carriers may be used when a true medical condition precludes the intended parent from carrying a pregnancy or would pose a significant risk to the woman or the fetus.

The indication of medical necessity must be documented in the intended parents’ medical records (includes biological inability to conceive or bear a child, such as single male or same-sex male couple).

No owner, operator, laboratory director, or employee of the practice may serve as a gestational carrier or intended parent in that practice.

As a professional agency, we believe it is important to maintain this separation between our staff and our clients.

Psychosocial education and counseling by a qualified mental health professional is strongly recommended for both gestational carriers and intended parents.

100% of our intended parents and gestational carriers undergo a 3 – 3 ½ hour evaluation with our Clinical Psychologist (includes the PAI test) and there is no separate charge for this.

Both intended parents and gestational carriers should have separate, ongoing legal representation by qualified legal practitioners who are licensed in the relevant state(s) and/or countries.

We require independent legal representation for all parties (intended parents, gestational carrier and husband, and The Surrogacy Center agency) by attorneys licensed in the state where the gestational carrier lives.

Issues related to screening and testing of the fetus during pregnancy should be discussed and documented. Plans for management of complications and/or multifetal gestations should be discussed and agreed upon.

We facilitate discussion of these sensitive, yet critical topics and take detailed notes, which are then incorporated into the Parentage Agreement for review by all parties prior to signing.
