A Gestational Carrier is a woman who agrees to carry a child for someone else. The GC is not genetically related to the child. The IPs will have an IVF cycle providing their own eggs and sperm (or donor egg or donor sperm) in order to create viable embryos to transfer to the gestational carrier.
I don’t even know where to begin! Simply, it has been an amazing experience to work with Family Formers. Teresa and Leila are angels that guided me through this unbelievable and wonderful journey in which they help me to make somebody’s dream come true. As a surrogate, I was able to give the biggest gift that you can give to someone, their baby. There is not bigger reward than to see the smile on the face of the parents when they get to see their baby for the first time. For me, the experience as a surrogate was amazing and even more amazing and rewarding feeling to know that I acted as a bridge between God and earth in bringing that wonderful gift of life to the family that I worked with.
Teresa and Leila, I greatly appreciate the job that you do, keep up with the good work of making dreams come true.
God bless you!
Surrogacy has always been something that weighed on my mind. I always felt like I wanted to do it and as soon as I got in touch with Teresa, I knew that was the journey I wanted to pursue. Family Formers makes you feel like a part of an amazing family. Teresa and Leila were always a text or phone call away and next to me every step of the way.
Surrogacy has truly been such a mind-blowing experience and will always have a special place in my heart forever.
Dear Teresa and Leila,
I want to thank you both for giving me an amazing opportunity to become a surrogate. My experience as a surrogate was more than I can ever imagine. When I was pregnant the baby’s parents and I developed an incredible bond. After getting to know the parents even more I knew that they wanted this more than anything in the world. After an amazing birth experience, I have friends asking me “Kayla, how could you just let the baby go?” Or, “Doesn’t it bother you that she is not yours and you won’t see her anymore?” My answer is, “She is not mine. She has two wonderful parents that waited a long time for her. It doesn’t bother me that I don’t see her because I know she’s extremely loved and taken care of by her family”. My goal when I became a surrogate was to make someone else’s life for the better. It wasn’t about money, it was about blessing another family with a miracle baby. I couldn’t be happier for my IP’s and their little girl. None of this was possible if it wasn’t for you and Leila.
If anything, you two are the angels. You guys have made many people parents.
With extra love,
A decade ago, Family Formers was created because of our own personal challenges with IVF clinics, egg donor agencies, and surrogacy companies.
In defining what our company’s mission and goals were to be, it was clear: WE HAD TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Family Formers will be there every step of the way to ensure that the Gestational Carriers are taken care of throughout the entire journey.
We take pride in delivering positive experiences for each of our families. Family Formers is the leading premier surrogacy and egg donation agency in the Southeastern United States. Our firm is recognized as having one of the highest success rates in our industry.
You can count of us to feel informed, cared for, and comfortable from our very first zoom call, throughout the process and long after labor. We are always accessible and are here to answer all of your questions.
Most GCs I speak to about surrogacy, say that they would like to be one because they love to be pregnant and have completed their families. Other ones just want to help another family have their children
For me, these reasons are true, but my story goes a little deeper. When I was 17 years old, my OBGYN told me he didn’t think I’d be able to have children. Without any valid reason or testing, this was a random thought that he blurted out to me during a visit. At a young age, for a moment, I was on the shoes of many of the couples GC’s help build their families. How can I not be able to have children?
