Lane Fertility Gestational Surrogacy


 


What is Lane Fertility Surrogacy?

  • Lane Fertility Surrogacy is a division of Lane Fertility Institute based in San Francisco, California. 
  • Lane Fertility Surrogacy provides gestational surrogates who are carefully selected women that are eager to provide the gift of life to patients globally. 
  • Our surrogates will undergo an embryo transfer, prenatal care and delivery of your child. 
  • These women have undergone rigorous screening to include psychological testing, medical examination, obstetrical clearance, as well as individual interviews with our team to ensure that they are able to provide this service.

What are reasons to use a gestational surrogate?

The patient(s) that choose to work with our surrogates do so because they are unable to carry their own child for some medical or non-medical reason. 

  • Some women have medical conditions preventing them from carrying a pregnancy
  • Some women have complicated pregnancies that prevent them from carrying another baby
  • Same sex males and single males require a gestational surrogate to carry their child
  • Some parent(s) have lifestyle reasons that prevent them from carrying a pregnancy
  • Some women have advanced in age such that pregnancy is no longer a safe option

What does the service help solve/fix?

Gestational surrogacy allows all of the potential parents in the cases above to experience pregnancy through their surrogate and grow their family.
