  • Healthy weight (BMI 32 or less)

Why choose ARTparenting?

Over 25 years of experience, integrity, and hands-on guidance mean that every surrogate has all the information, support, and care she needs throughout the process. Meryl B. Rosenberg, Esq., the founder of ARTparenting, has worked with hundreds of gestational surrogates including many from Ohio. At ARTparenting, we carefully handle all the details, from your first meeting through the birth. Meryl is known for her leadership and dedication to the field of reproductive law. Read about her work to improve the regulation of surrogacy in order to provide the best protections for all parties involved and to ensure legal recognition of the child’s intended parent.

For our surrogates in Ohio, there is no waiting to be matched. We carefully interview each surrogate about who she would like to work with — whether she prefers to help local or overseas intended parents, those who are single or married, same-sex couples, families that already have a child, or other preferences. A hallmark of our program is the focus we place on the matches between the parents and the gestational surrogates.

The whole process of surrogacy can be very overwhelming and scary, especially the first time, not knowing what to expect.

But with Meryl and her team I am proud to say it was a wonderful, painless and enjoyable process that created many beautiful memories!
