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.

Surrogacy & Surrogate Mothers

The surrogacy process allows an individual to have a child through the IVF process and have another woman carry the embryo to term for them. The choice to use Surrogacy to have children is a personal one and solely up to the potential parent. Some choose to utilize Surrogacy for medical reasons, while others choose Surrogacy because they cannot leave their job for months at a time to have a child. No matter what the reason, it is solely at their discretion. The IVF process allows an embryo to be created by doctors, through the combination of an Egg and Sperm and then implanted into the Surrogate Mother for gestation. Surrogacy allows an individual to have a child that is genetically related to them, as their genetic material (either sperm or egg) is being used to create the embryo.

In the United States, California, Colorado, Nevada, 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.

Depending on where you live, Surrogacy can be difficult, costly, or not even allowed. Finding a reputable Surrogacy Agency with experience and expertise in Social Surrogacy is of the utmost importance. We understand that one’s residency and citizenship status can have an effect on their ability to use Surrogacy to have children while being single. That is why we make sure to protect the parties and their private information from any issues that may come up during the surrogacy process by finding clinics in locations that are single parent surrogacy friendly.
