For many people who want to start a family, the dream of having a child is not easily realized. The latest data on infertility available to CDC are from the 2011–2015 National Survey of Family Growth. Almost 7% of married women aged 15–44 years were unable to get pregnant after at least 12 consecutive months of trying to conceive.
Assisted reproductive technology (ART) has been used in the United States since 1981 to help patients become pregnant, most commonly through the transfer of fertilized human eggs into a woman’s uterus.
Who can become intended parents
Heterosexual couples, single parents and the LGBT community can become intended parents through surrogacy and egg donation legally.
Can I become an intended parent if I do not struggle with infertility
Our answer is yes. Actually, a lot of public or business people conceive babies via surrogacy due to their crazy schedules.
Independent journey or Agency
An independent journey sounds like you could save money on agency fees. However, you need to find a surrogate, psychologist, attorney by yourself, assuming something happens during the journey. For instance, the surrogate does not pass medical screening or changes her mind. You may get a big loss and nobody could help you.
Working with an agency, you do not need to worry about those headaches. A professional agency means a professional team to support your entire journey.

Please assure distance would not be a problem.

Covid and Surrogacy
Covid as a pandemic is affecting our daily life a lot. It does hesitate a lot of intended parents to start their journey. In reference to the recent study, there is no evidence showing the pregnant women get covid easier or will pass the disease to the fetus in the uterus. In an analysis of 147 women, only 8 percent had severe disease and 1 percent were in critical condition, according to a report published on Feb. 28 by the World Health Organization. Therefore, starting your journey at this moment is safe as we take full precautions.
The international intended parents should consider travel restrictions. ACRC prepares legal documents for intended parents to make sure they could enter the United States to pick up the babies. Furthermore, we also fly the babies for intended parents from China mainland.
