    Does your program work with single parents and gay couples?
    Yes. Cori's believes that everyone has the right to be a parent, regardless of their age, marital status or sexual orientation.
     
    How are the Surrogates paid?
    This depends on how the contract is written. Prior to the start of medications, the Intended Parents set-up a fully funded Trust Account with their attorney and/or an escrow company. This account will be used to pay the Surrogate according to the contract guidelines.
     
    How do I secure an egg donor?
    Cori’s focus has shifted to surrogacy only. However, for Intended Parents whose fertility journey includes the need for an egg donor, we are here to help you. We have been fortunate to work with some excellent egg donor agencies (and a few we would not recommend) and would be happy to share our knowledge with you.
     
    How does Cori's take what can seem like an overwhelming process and make it simple?
    • Simple Legal: We’ll coordinate the legal process and find the best attorneys for you for the best rates possible. We will simplify what could be a complex legal process by negotiating between parties before contract drafting. • Simple Process: We streamline the process for each individual journey and handle all financial aspects so you can avoid sticky financial and legal issues. We realize that every surrogacy and egg donation is unique. We will discuss your needs, concerns, and expectations in the beginning to insure your journey is a pleasant one. • Simple Support: We are dedicated to producing a positive outcome and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All of our clients are provided with our direct number. Please feel free to call, day or night, with any questions, concerns, or even if you just need someone to lean on. In the event that we leave town or take a vacation during your journey, we will provide you with alternate contact information. • Simple Fee: We charge one of the lowest fees in the industry among programs with similar experience and success. We’ll provide you full service without having to pay for it. Please visit our Services and Fees page to review our pricing.
     
    How long does it take to find a suitable Surrogate?
    The matching process must be one that’s mutual for everyone involved. This may be as short as a few days or as long as several months. We feel it best to keep a realistic approach to the matching process. Don’t set your expectations so high that you don’t allow for someone that could be the right match for you to slip by. It’s also important to keep in mind that our economy remains in a state of flux. So, while many are still seeking surrogacy to create a child, there are fewer resources available in terms of financing and other assistance to Intended Parents going through this process.

    What is Cori's screening process for Surrogate applicants?
    Surrogate candidates initially apply with our company either on-line or contact us by phone to receive a Surrogate application and program information. A series of basic questions are asked to ensure the Surrogate candidate meets the general criteria. Once this has been met, the Surrogate proceeds to an extensive application and list of program requirements that she must complete and/or obtain in order to be considered for our program. An in-person interview is conducted with both the surrogate and her partner/spouse. We obtain your previous birth records from your OBGYN and require that a current physical exam and/or pap smear also be completed either by your own OBGYN or primary care physician or one of our choosing. A background investigation and psychological screening will also be completed prior to your profile being made available to any Intended Parents. Once matched, you will be sent to the Intended Parents’ fertility specialist for an in-depth physical exam, testing for both infectious disease screening (including your partner/spouse), drug screening and any other testing deemed necessary by the physician to determine your suitability and ability to conceive and safely carry a child. Any additional psychological or medical testing/screening can be performed at the request of the Intended Parents or the fertility specialist.
     
    What services do you provide?
    We match Intended Parents with the right surrogate mother for them. Using the details you submit in your profile and from discussions we have with you, we locate a surrogate mother who has the same views as you do. There are some very specific aspects of surrogacy which need to be agreed upon before we even tell you about a prospective surrogate mother. For example, if you want three embryos to be transferred at the time of transfer, there is no point in matching you with a surrogate mother who will only agree to having one embryo transferred. Our services include: 1. Coordinating the testing of the surrogate mother and her spouse. 2. Coordinating the background and psychological evaluations. 3. Coordinating the contract process between you and your surrogate mother. 4. Coordinating with the fertility centers, attorneys, psychologists, obstetricians and hospitals.
     
    Where do your Surrogates come from?
    Though we have Surrogates who reside all over the United States, most live in the Southern California area. Many call in response to advertisement in the local newspapers, ads ran in other local publications, and the Internet. Happily, some are referred to us by personal friends who have gone through our agency!
