We are proud to be a part of making the joys of parenthood possible for any and all people, regardless of orientation. Additionally, one of our co-owners, Brooke Kimbrough is a proud surrogate to an LGBTQ+ family. At Roots Surrogacy, you will find compassionate and knowledgeable support specific to the needs of LGBTQ+ intended parents. We are proud to provide you with a network of fertility clinics and match you with gay-friendly surrogates and egg donors.
A journey you won't walk alone. When you choose Roots Surrogacy, you are entering into a partnership that is built on mutual trust and respect. We will be there to provide support, compassion, accessibility and understanding throughout your journey.
Creating joy. Just as not all stories are penned with the same ink, not all families are created in the same way. We are committed to personalizing this journey based on the needs and wants of your family, resulting in the birth of your new baby and a future of hope.
Education and support. Making informed decisions throughout the process is critical. We start your journey with a 2-3 hour consultation that explains the intricacies of surrogacy and follow up with a weekly email that updates and informs you about your journey. You also have 24-hour access to one of our owners. From attorney referrals to parenting classes in your neighborhood, we are here to serve as an educator, advocate and resource to support you in every way possible.
