Why Georgia Is A Great Place To Be A Surrogate

If you live in Georgia and are considering surrogacy, you’re in luck! Georgia has the reputation of being one of the most surrogacy-friendly states in the country, boasts a wide range of family-building resources, and is home to top-notch fertility centers.

Legal, legal, legal!


Georgia is a great location for a surrogacy journey, despite no state law or case law directly addressing surrogacy contracts in Georgia. Courts regularly establish parental rights for intended parents through a pre-birth court order, which declares the intended parents as the legal parents and directs the state of Georgia to create the child’s birth certificate listing both intended parents (or the single parent alone). In Georgia, the court process is typically seamless and everything is handled between the attorneys for the intended parents and for the gestational carrier. Surrogacy Attorney, Melissa Torto, our colleague at ConceiveAbilities, notes that while an in-person hearing is usually not required, this can vary by judge.

Easy access to top-notch care teams


For couples who are turning to surrogacy to help grow their families, Atlanta not only offers renowned hospital care from centers including Emory Healthcare and Piedmont Healthcare, but is also home to the Atlanta Birth Center, a wonderful option for anyone who is looking for a safe and welcoming alternative to hospital birth. As the ninth largest and one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, Atlanta makes access to expert medical care and monitoring throughout your pregnancy readily available. Known for its southern hospitality and attention to family, the city also has a great surrogate sisterhood and network. Atlanta also boasts some of the best-in-class fertility clinics in the country, including:

Reproductive Biology Associates


As you heard from Dr. Shapiro, Reproductive Biology Associates has been a world leader in providing compassionate and efficient fertility treatment since 1983. Over the past 35+ years, RBA has helped couples have more than 35,000 babies and counting while pioneering some of the world’s most advanced technologies and procedures in the treatment of infertility.

Shady Grove Fertility - Atlanta


Shady Grove Fertility has 4 offices in and around the Atlanta area. Recognized nationally and internationally as a Center of Excellence in the field of reproductive medicine, IVF, and infertility, Shady Grove celebrates 85,000 babies born and over 5,000 5-star patient reviews!

CCRM Fertility - Atlanta


CCRM Fertility was founded in 1987 by Dr. William Schoolcraft, and since its inception has achieved international recognition as a global pioneer in fertility science, research and treatment. As a SART Clinic, CCRM is committed to the highest quality standards of care.

Family-building resources abound with Southern hospitality


ConceiveAbilities knows Georgia. We have deep relationships with surrogacy experts in Atlanta and throughout Georgia to help you assemble the best surrogacy support team as possible.

Atlanta is also home to numerous birthing experts, most notably the Atlanta Birth Doula team. Atlanta Birth Doula proudly supports families in the LGBTQ+ community and families that are born through surrogacy and adoption. Providing free consultations to help educate expecting families about the benefits of doulas and how to pick the right one for your surrogacy journey. Did you know that women who work with doulas are 40% less likely to have a c-section? Atlanta Birth Doula is a priceless resource for both surrogates and intended parents in the Georgia area.

Matching with Your Intended Family in Georgia

How do we match you, as a surrogate, with the intended family of your choice? Our proprietary matching process pairs you with the family you were meant to help who has shared values and expectations. Matching Matters has a 97% success rate at first introduction, expediting your journey.

Throughout the screening process, we will have gotten to know you well; toward the end of that process, we will interview you in detail to learn more about your values and expectations for your surrogacy journey. The principles we prioritize in Matching Matters are based on relationship compatibility, medical criteria of the intended parents’ clinic, reproductive choices, legal considerations, and other specifics requested by you as a surrogate, and the intended parents. Our experts take into account all aspects of the surrogacy process to thoroughly vet compatibility.

Unlike some other surrogacy agencies in Georgia who don’t show you parent profiles, we will present you with a curated, carefully vetted profile of potential intended parent matches, so you can learn about the family you choose to help. The result? The right match the first time, helping you move closer to your dream of helping a family build their family.
