California Legal Advantages

International patients will find California to be a favorable legal environment for their surrogacy experience. California is a “Surrogate Friendly” state and issues pre-birth orders through the courts placing the name of the Intended Parents on the birth certificate. The pre-birth orders allow for all parental rights to be secured prior to birth for both parents’ names, regardless of gender on their baby’s birth certificate. It allows you to travel back home sooner with no delay on the birth certificate issuance and facilitating a post-birth order if required.

American Surrogate Mothers

American surrogate mothers are considered the most highly-qualified in the world and foreign intended parents can feel confident about their choice in a CACRM surrogate mother.

CACRM’s physician-directed surrogacy program thoroughly screens and evaluates all surrogate applicants before matching them with prospective parents. Our surrogates must have an independent source of income and a support network to assist them through pregnancy and delivery. Through many conversations and interviews, we learn their motivations for helping intended parents have a baby. We connect our extensively-evaluated gestational carriers with intended parents who have compatible viewpoints and communication approaches.

We Cater To Your Needs

Communication with you, your surrogate, and CACRM will be seamless, even if you are several time zones away. We have international coordinators who are fluent in different languages, including Spanish, French, Italian, German, and Chinese. We have found that consistent, reliant communication is the key to a successful and productive relationship, and we make sure we consider your preferences and requests.
