Why choose ARTparenting?

You have found the place for you with ARTparenting. ARTparenting's founder, Meryl B. Rosenberg, Esq., has worked with hundreds of gestational surrogates since 1993. She personally directs every surrogacy arrangement — including the all-important match. Meryl is well known for her leadership role and dedication to the field of reproductive law. Read about Meryl Rosenberg's work to regulate surrogacy.


A hallmark of our program is the focus we place on the matches between the intended parents and the surrogates. Because we are a small, intimate firm we are able to take great care in doing so. For our surrogates in Texas, there is no waiting to be matched with intended parents who are waiting to build their families. Each potential surrogate is consulted in detail about the intended parents (or parent) she would most like to help. For example, she may prefer those who live in the US or overseas, families that already have a child, same-sex couples or heterosexual, or have other situations. Every match is a mutual decision and a true partnership.


With our surrogacy program, we oversee every detail — from your very first contact through the birth. You can count on getting all the support you need even before you begin.

Hands-on guidance and more than 25 years of experience help ensure our gestational surrogates have 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.

How our surrogacy program works

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

In order to qualify as a gestational surrogate in Texas — you must be:

  • The mother of at least one child

  • Healthy, non-smoker, with a BMI of 32 or lower

  • Financially stable

  • Be willing to undergo medical and psychological evaluations

These are just a few of the requirements for becoming a gestational carrier. Read more about the requirements for becoming a surrogate and find out how the program works.

I am so thankful that when I made the decision to become a surrogate that I found Meryl. She was wonderful from the start and her matching me as a surrogate with intended parents was spot on. We had the best partnership imaginable. I couldn’t have dreamed of having an easier time with my surrogate experience.

Even though we didn’t have any major issues, it was always comforting to know that Meryl was available, day or night, if I needed her for anything.

I would (and have) recommend ARTparenting to anyone considering it, either surrogate or parent.
