LGBT Surrogacy

LGBT

The staff of 3 Sisters Surrogacy have years of infertility and 3rd party reproduction experience. From the initial consultation to birth, we guide our clients in selecting a surrogate, choosing an egg donor, attorney referrals, and fertility clinic recommendations. Our industry connections include insurance specialists that can navigate the review of health care policies to determine if additional coverage is necessary, as well as counselors and doulas to ensure that pregnancy and the birth are wonderful experiences for everyone involved.

Surrogacy

Traditional Surrogacy - Traditional surrogacy is when a woman, also acting as egg donor, is inseminated with the sperm of an intended father. The surrogate mother is also biologically related to the child. In Texas, this type of surrogacy contract is not legally protected by the Texas Family Code; due to the potential legal risks, 3 Sisters Surrogacy does not provide matching for traditional surrogacy.

Gestational Surrogacy - Gestational surrogacy utilizes the eggs from the intended mother or an egg donor and the sperm from the intended father or a sperm donor. The embryo that is created from in vitro fertilization is then replaced into the uterus of the gestational surrogate. There is no genetic connection between the surrogate and the baby. Texas is considered a surrogacy-friendly state, with the Texas Family Code supporting this type of arrangement.

Legal

We work with a number of attorneys throughout Texas that are familiar in writing surrogacy contracts for same-sex couples and single parents. Currently, the laws do not allow both parents of a same-sex couple to be on the baby's birth certificate. Prior to birth, one parent will be selected as the parent of record, and after birth there will be a second parent adoption. We will be happy to provide you with a list of attorneys to get you started on your journey.

We have partnered with one of the top egg donation agencies in the country to provide exceptional egg donors for our families.
