We've been helping Parents grow their families since 1999. As a trusted and experienced agency, we provide you with comprehensive solutions and unwavering support to guide you through every step of your journey. We believe that your choice to grow your family with Surrogacy is yours, whether or not you have found the right partner to spend your life with.
How it Works:
Can a person have a baby without a partner?
Yes! Many states in the U.S. allow a single person to be listed as the sole parent on a child's birth certificate. This allows a single person to use Surrogacy to have a child that is genetically related to them without the need of a partner or a marriage license. At Conceptual Options, we reserve no judgement for people choosing to grow their family with Surrogacy and Egg Donation. Whether you have a partner or not, we can help you throughout the process.
Which States allow single parent Surrogacy?
In the United States, California. Colorado, Oregon, Georgia, Montana, and South Dakota all allow a sole parent to be listed on a child's birth certificate. Arizona and Illinois also allow a single parent to be listed on a child's birth certificate, but only if the child is genetically related to them. This is a non-issue with Surrogacy if the potential parent will be providing either the sperm or egg for the child.
For Single Men:
Men looking to have a child through Surrogacy will not only need a Surrogate but also an Egg Donor to provide the other side of the genetic material necessary to have a child. The donated egg will be combined with the Father's sperm to create an embryo. This mebryo will then be transferred into a Surrogate Mother for her to carry the child to term. At Conceptual Options, our Egg Donor Database and fantastic case managers make it easy for a potential parent to find their ideal Egg Donor and Surrogate Mother.

For Single Women:
Single Women looking to have a child through Surrogacy will need to connect with a Sperm Donor and a Surrogate. The Sperm Donor will provide the other half of the genetic material used to make the child. The donated sperm will be implanted in the mother's egg and then transferred into the Surrogate Mother for her to carry the child to term. Our expert team will be happy to find and connect you with a Sperm Donor and a Surrogate Mother to help make your dream of having a child a reality.

The 6 Steps of Single Parent Surrogacy:
Schedule your No-Cost Consultation
By scheduling a consultation with one of our experienced client relation team members, you have the ability to ask questions, discuss options and determine the best path to creating your family. Or you can access our egg donor database by filling out our Intended Parents Application.
Select your Surrogate Mother, Egg Donor, and Sperm Donor
Finding a surrogate, egg donor, or sperm donor may seem like a daunting task; however, the experienced staff of Conceptual Options is here to familiarize you with the surrogacy and donation process and help you select the surrogate mother and/or egg donor and sperm donor that best fits your needs. Every surrogacy and donation cycle is different for each family, and working with Conceptual Options will help you navigate your journey to parenthood.
Start Medical Screenings and Paperwork
Now that you have selected your Surrogate Mother, Egg Donor, or Sperm Donor, the time has come for the complete medical screening of your surrogate and/or egg donor and sperm donor. Also, at the same time, the legal contracts will be drafted and finalized by the attorneys.
IVF Medical Cycle Starts
Upon completion of all medical screening and legal contracts, the IVF cycle will start with the IVF doctor syncing everyone’s cycles together. Once this is done, medications will start for the Intended Mother, Surrogate Mother, and/or Egg Donor. Within several weeks the egg retrieval will occur, and the embryo transfer will take place within 3-5 days following the egg retrieval from the Intended Mother and/or egg donor.
The Day of the Pregnancy Test Arrives – Positive Pregnancy Vibes!
Positive Pregnancy Vibes! This the day you have been waiting for – the day you discover if you or your surrogate is pregnant and on the path to creating your family.
