Why choose ARTparenting?

ARTparenting’s founder, Meryl B. Rosenberg, Esq., has worked with hundreds of gestational surrogates and intended parents since 1993. She has an outstanding reputation in the reproductive community and volunteers her time to further the development of assisted-reproduction law.

Integrity, personal attention, and hands-on guidance are our hallmarks. Every surrogate is closely consulted about who she would like to help — whether she prefers to work with intended parents who live locally or overseas, families that already have a child, same-sex couples, and other situations. For our surrogates in Maine, there is no waiting to be matched. Each match is a mutual decision and a true partnership.

You have found the place for you with ARTparenting. Read our blogs posts and interviews with some of ARTparenting’s surrogates.

Find out if you qualify

A gestational surrogate carries a child conceived through in-vitro fertilization (IVF) using the egg from the intended mother or an egg donor, and the sperm from the intended father or a sperm donor. The child will not be not genetically related to the gestational surrogate.

A few of the basic requirements for becoming a surrogate:

  • 21 to 44 years old

  • Given birth to a child of your own

  • Enjoy being pregnant

  • Financially stable

  • Body mass index (BMI) 32 or less (check here)

Your decision to become a surrogate

The decision to become a gestational surrogate can be complex. Our blog post, “Making the Decision: Is it Right for Me?” may help. Becoming a surrogate requires a level of commitment that only a few exceptional women will be able to meet. We know that raising children is one of life’s ultimate joys — a willingness to share that joy with others is admirable. At ARTparenting, we feel so fortunate to be able to bring surrogates and intended parents together to help form families.

I have known Meryl for about 10 years and am on my fourth surrogacy with her. She listens when you have to vent and is easily accessible. If you have questions or concerns regarding contracts, intended parents, facilities, etc. she is very knowledgeable.

She actually makes the whole situation, especially the delivery, easy to deal with because she has everything in place prior to the birth. I would recommend anyone who is interested in surrogacy to Meryl.
