THE MATCH: Intended Parents Need You!

For our surrogates in New Jersey, there is no waiting to be matched. A hallmark of our program is the focus we place on matching. Because we are a small, intimate firm we are able to take great care in matching each gestational surrogate with the intended parents. Each surrogate is closely consulted about her individual preferences and whom she would most like to help: intended parents who live in the US or overseas, families that already have a child, same-sex couples or other situations. Each match is a mutual decision and a true partnership.

Get the Support You Need with Our Surrogacy Program

With our surrogacy program, we oversee everything — from your first contact with us through the birth of the child. You can count on getting all the support you need — even before you begin the process.

Hands-on guidance and 25-plus years of experience help ensure a comfortable and coordinated experience. We make sure that our surrogates and our intended parents have all the information, personal support, and care they need.

New Jersey Surrogacy

ARTparenting accepts gestational surrogates from New Jersey.

We work with surrogates and intended parents from the state of New Jersey to form families through our complete surrogacy program.

On May 30, 2018, Governor Phil Murphy signed the Gestational Surrogacy Act, effective immediately. Our founder, Meryl B. Rosenberg, is admitted to the bar in New Jersey and is especially excited about the new law.

This new legislation regulates gestational surrogacy agreements and makes them enforceable while providing protections for all parties involved. It provides for pre-birth orders, allows for payment of reasonable living expenses for the gestational carrier, in addition to medical, legal, and counseling expenses during the pregnancy and the post-partum period. Most important, it protects the children born through gestational carrier arrangements.

Outstanding. Simply outstanding.

I was a Gestational Surrogate with ARTparenting and the experience was one I will cherish my whole life. Meryl and Julie never once let me feel overwhelmed or like I didn’t know what I was getting into. The support and genuine heartfelt guidance though the journey was wonderful and something I didn’t even know I would need. Helping someone grow their family has been a dream of mine for a very long time. ARTparenting made that dream a reality.
