You have found the place for you with ARTparenting. If you’d like to learn more about becoming a surrogate and live in Maryland, or if you’re an intended parent looking for more information about surrogacy — we’re here to answer your questions.
Our location in Potomac, Maryland makes it easy for our Maryland surrogates to visit us in person — although meeting in the office is optional, we do encourage you to stop by.
Meryl B. Rosenberg, Esq., the founder of ARTparenting, has worked with hundreds of gestational surrogates and parents since 1993, many from Maryland. At ARTparenting, we handle every detail, from initial contact through the birth of the child.
For our surrogates in Maryland, there is no waiting to be matched. To make sure everyone feels comfortable with the entire process, we carefully consult with each surrogate and intended parent from the start to determine their priorities and preferences — and then make the best match possible. A core feature of our program is the focus we place on the matching process; each match is a mutual decision and a true partnership.
We understand one of the many decisions that go into becoming a gestational surrogate may be financial. The amount of any payments or ancillary expenses is based on multiple factors, including whether you are a repeat surrogate, the cost of health insurance as well as other required expenses. Please review our compensation matrix for details.

Hands-on guidance and a personal approach ensure every gestational surrogate gets the information, support, and care she needs throughout the surrogacy process.
How our surrogacy program works
A gestational surrogate carries a child conceived through IVF using an egg from a donor or the intended mother. This means the child will not be genetically related to the gestational surrogate.
Basic requirements for becoming a gestational surrogate:
Has the desire to help others form a family
Must be between the ages of 21 and 44
Given birth to at least one child
Please review additional requirements.
