Family Makers Surrogacy Announces Surrogate Screening Program

New surrogate screening program will support independent surrogacy matches

"We believe that it is important for ethical gestational surrogacy to be affordable for anyone interested in building their family with a gestational carrier." said Ashlee Hammonds, Agency Director.

    ATLANTA, GA, October 14, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Family Makers Surrogacy, a full-service surrogacy agency, announced a new surrogate screening program to support families who choose to find their surrogate independently, rather than through the support of a surrogacy agency.

Family Makers has supported intended parents and gestational carriers in the Atlanta area and across the country for more than seven years. With unprecedented wait times for matching, many Intended Parents are choosing to search for potential surrogates on social media, matching websites and through friends and family. The new gestational carrier screening program will allow intended parents seeking a surrogate on their own to have the guidance and support of an agency when they have chosen an independent journey[SC1] saving them time and money.

"We believe that it is important for ethical gestational surrogacy to be affordable for anyone interested in building their family with a gestational carrier," said Ashlee Hammonds, Agency Director. "We see a great opportunity to support family building through gestational surrogacy to intended parents who have chosen an independent surrogate, while providing all parties the reassurance that agency screening can provide."

Intended Parents who choose the Gestational Carrier Screening Program are provided the support and guidance of a Family Makers' Case Manager during the screening process. The gestational carrier will complete Family Makers Surrogacy's extensive surrogate screening including a comprehensive application, interviews, background checks, insurance verification, medical record review and virtual home tour. Intended Parents can also choose to extend support through the first trimester of their journey, if they feel they or their Surrogate need support after screening.

Intended Parents who are interested in the Surrogate Screening Program, or any of Family Makers Full-Service Support programs, may complete a new parent consultation form. All consultations are completed with our agency director, Ashlee Hammonds at no cost to the Intended Parents.

Founded by former Intended Parents, Family Makers Surrogacy understands gestational surrogacy comes with many decisions. Family Makers strives to go beyond their role as a responsible business by connecting with our clients on a very personal level.

Family Makers understands the importance of offering transparent, affordable, and straightforward fees, as well as realistic timelines, continuous support, and thoughtful gestational carrier matching. Family Makers offers a variety of affordable programs to meet the needs of those we work with, rather than following a cookie-cutter approach.

Family Makers Surrogacy assists Intended Parents throughout the United States during their surrogacy journey and is a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), and Society of Ethics in Egg Donation and Surrogacy (SEEDS).
