intended parents

Welcome to a potential path to parenthood!

A New Beginning has been creating families since 2004. We first established an adoption agency, and we understand how to navigate the unique and sensitive relationships between parents and birth parents and will do the same for intended parents and gestational carriers during their match process and afterwards. Our goal is always to create a journey that is healthy, successful and permanent for all the families involved and especially the children.

 

A New Beginning Surrogacy Agency isn’t just another agency, we’ve spent a significant amount of time researching focus groups, spent time with fertility clinics, specialists and hospitals to identify what works best for the surrogacy situation. We look forward to helping intended parents in the United States as well as globally to match with pre-screen gestational carriers in the United States.

The Surrogacy Journey

Step 1: Agency consultation & program application

Getting to know your agency and it’s professionals is important. You’ll be sharing a very intimate journey with them. First, submit a completed application. It will help answer initial questions and begin the consultation. During the Agency consultation phase, intended parents will meet or have a video call with A New Beginning Surrogacy to discuss the services available, steps in the surrogacy process including the matching with a gestational carrier, legalities, contracts, financial information, insurance and travel if necessary.

The embryo transfer is one of the most exciting parts of your surrogacy journey. After health and life insurance has been established, the IVF cycle can begin and then the embryo transfer.
