Surrogacy Agency Location
When you're searching for a surrogacy agency, you'll likely start with the ones that are located near you. Surrogate mothers and intended parents may naturally want to meet with agency staff in person. At CSP, Inc., we have offices on the east and west coast of the United States. For intended parents we offer in person office consultations or video conferencing for your initial consultation. For surrogate moms we offer a variety of support group meetings throughout the U.S. because we understand the importance of talking to other people on the same journey as you.

Does Location Matter?

With modern technology, it's easy to conduct meetings internationally without leaving the comfort of your home. Technically, it doesn't matter where the surrogate mother, intended parents, or surrogate agency are located. In fact, at CSP, we have surrogates all over the United State and intended parents all over the world. More than 50 percent of intended parents are from countries other than the United States, which shows that location doesn't need to hold you back.
Location is only a concern when the laws of a state do not allow for legal surrogacy. Different states have different laws and regulations on how the process is handled. In surrogacy-friendly states, the law permit a woman to engage in a compensated agreement with intended parents. These are the only states that CSP where accepts surrogate mothers.

Support Is Important

If the surrogate mother lives in a surrogacy-friendly state, it doesn't matter where the agency or the intended parents are located. However, surrogates and intended parents may need support throughout their journey. Going through a surrogate pregnancy is not quite the same as a regular pregnancy, and the surrogate mother may have many questions about the different parts of the process. It's important for all parties to have the support they need on this incredibly rewarding journey and through the various professionals that CSP is associated with we provide this kind of needed support system.

Regular Support Meetings

We offer regular group support meetings in many different areas of the country. Currently CSP has Surrogate Mom group support meetings in Encino, California; Corona, California; Fresno, California; Sonoma, California; Denver, Colorado; Las Vegas, Nevada; Annapolis, Maryland and Chicago, Illinois. These meetings are for CSP surrogate mothers and their husbands or partners. They take place on a monthly or quarterly basis and provide an opportunity for you to meet other women who are also sharing this special journey. At these meetings, our surrogate moms have the chance to talk to other surrogates with more or less experience and they are always facilitated by a licensed counselor. Additionally, we invite you to talk to one of our experienced staff members about any part of the surrogacy process that you have questions about.

Shared Experiences

One of the reasons why we encourage you to attend our support meetings is the option to share your experience with others. No matter where you are in the process—matching with intended parents, pregnant, or doing a second surrogacy—sharing your journey with others is an important part of the surrogate process. Even if you have a supportive group of family and friends at home, many surrogate moms create new friendships and bonds with other surrogate moms at group that last a lifetime!

Many of our surrogate mothers return to CSP for a repeat journey. CSP is dedicated to providing every surrogate mom with the support and information they deserve. We believe in nurturing relationships throughout the entire process, and its starts with providing you the support you need.

Availability Matters

To find the right surrogacy agency, location is only secondary. Instead, we think you should have the option to talk to someone when you need them. This includes timely support through phone, chat, or video conference with agency staff members who have the experience to answer any questions you may have about the process. We also think you need in-person support, and that's why we make an effort to set up regular meetings in different areas of the country. If you don't live nearby, we invite you to fly in and spend the night - unless you're too far along in your pregnancy to make the journey.
