Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is always improving, and the processes and laws surrounding surrogacy are always evolving — so it’s beneficial for intended parents and surrogates to keep up with the latest ART and surrogacy news.
American Surrogacy and the surrogacy attorneys that we partner with are passionate about this family-building path, so we stay on top of the latest information and developments in surrogacy. And, because surrogacy is part of the larger field of assisted reproduction and is only one type of ART, our professionals also keep up with the latest advancements in other forms of family-building. By staying informed on the field as a whole, you can better understand how surrogacy is affected by breakthroughs and changes in medicine, technology, legislature, social attitudes and more.
All of this can directly affect your surrogacy process, and as your guide through the surrogacy journey, American Surrogacy is here to help you stay a step ahead.
