Surrogacy in India – New Problems Arise

Written by Lauri on January 25, 2010

We at Agency for Surrogacy Solutions, Inc are well aware of what a surrogacy journey costs in the United States. After all, both Kathryn and I are former IPs, and I have started on another surrogacy journey.

There’s been so much talk and press about surrogacy in India and while it sounds good — especially the cost –

What is the process of becoming pregnant via Gestational Surrogacy

Written by Lauri on December 6, 2009
