Special assistance for citizens of Europe, Asia, South America, Mexico, Canada, and other regions where the practice of egg donation and surrogacy is very limited.
Europeans and citizens from other parts of the world often do not have access to third party reproduction (egg donation and surrogacy) at home, and may choose to take advantage of these technologies in the United States, where they will also find the highest quality medical care.
NAFG welcomes inquiries from around the world. We help couples and individuals navigate these complicated arrangements from start to finish, according to their individual needs. These include:
- Providing a wide selection of healthy, educated egg donor candidates to choose from
- Providing a responsible and caring gestational carrier (surrogate)
- Coordinating appointments and travel for all parties involved
- Legal contract / Immigration referrals
- Many other details that keep the process moving along smoothly.
If you have been advised by your doctor to seek an egg donor and/or surrogate but live outside the United States, please contact us for an appointment with our program director. We can discuss your situation by phone, video conference, or any means you prefer.
Finding an IVF Clinic
NAFG has excellent relationships with some of the finest IVF (in vitro fertilization) clinics on the east coast of the United States. We can make recommendations based on your special requirements and communicate with the doctors and nurses ahead of time, avoiding a long wait for a medical consultation.
Finding an Egg Donor
Our international clients have the same free access to our egg donor database as our domestic clients. It is easy to send us the codes of your candidates of interest and we will respond with more information. Please see our Conceiving with Donor Egg and Egg Donation FAQs pages for more information on how our egg donation program works.
Finding a Gestational Carrier (Surrogate)
Surrogacy is an especially delicate arrangement with intended parents outside the United States, as they often do not have as much in-person contact with their carrier throughout the pregnancy. NAFG will work to find you a gestational carrier open to working with intended parents who live far away, and make sure all her needs are met throughout her pregnancy. Please take a look at our How Surrogacy Works and our Surrogacy FAQs pages.
You may make your own bookings or let us handle your hotel, air and ground transportation for you.
Legal Matters (Contracts) / Immigration
NAFG does not provide any specific legal advice or legal services. Our egg donation and surrogacy program director, however, is an established assisted reproduction lawyer and we can recommend the right US-based counsel (and work together with him/her) to handle legal matters throughout the engagement. It is also very important to consult with counsel in your own country regarding any reentry and registration issues that may occur based upon the conduct that is contemplated.
