At Surrogate Parenting Services (SPS) we pride ourselves on the high-quality matches we create and the exceptional support we provide surrogates and intended parents. We are proud to be one of the best surrogacy agencies in California.
We’re passionate about making each client’s experience as comfortable, rewarding, and joyful as possible—and we believe this is why over half of our surrogates choose to do another journey with us. (In fact, we’ve had surrogates do three and even four journeys with us!)
Read on to find out why we’re considered one of the best surrogacy agencies in California and how we support our surrogates through their journey. Also, be sure to check out these reviews from some of our wonderful clients!
We’re with you every step of the way
The health, comfort, and happiness of our clients is paramount to us. From the moment you start your journey with SPS, we’ll be by your side through every step of the process.
You’ll be assigned a case manager who is available to you 24/7. She will educate you on the entire process, attend all fertility appointments and pregnancy milestone appointments with you, and be there through your labor and delivery. (Note that during Covid-19 times, we’ll be “by your side” in whatever way the provider allows—either in person, by phone, or virtually.)
Our surrogates also attend monthly support meetings led by a licensed mental health professional, which not only helps you navigate the emotional ups and downs of the process, but also gives you a sense of community during your journey.
We take our matches seriously
When matching surrogates and intended parents (IPs), some surrogacy agencies give intended parents a database of prospective surrogates to scroll through. But for us, surrogates are far more than a name on a screen.
As a surrogate, you’re looking after a baby for nine months, connecting you to the IP(s) in an incredibly intimate and powerful way. Our goal is to create a bond and trust between surrogates and IPs to make the experience of both parties as fulfilling as possible.
We believe that the matching process should be approached with personal care and extensive experience. Our founder and president, Cristie Montgomery, personally guides the matching process, which is one of the main reasons we have had such a long history of success.
We care about our clients and love what we do
After being a surrogate herself, Cristie Montgomery was motivated to do more to help others have a child of their own. She started SPS in 1990, and since then we’ve helped bring over 800 happy, healthy babies into the world. We’re now considered one of the oldest and most established full-service surrogacy agencies in California.
Our entire team is committed to the highest standards and to making our clients’ experience as positive as possible. All our case managers have been a surrogate with SPS at least once! We have an intimate understanding of this very unique experience—and this helps us provide the type of support and care our surrogates need and deserve.
As a surrogate with SPS, you can rest assured you’ll feel valued, heard, and taken care of at all times.
We offer competitive benefits packages
SPS offers one of the most competitive benefits packages in California. Our packages start at $58,000, and additional compensation and add-ons are possible.
Note that due to Covid-19, our pampering options have changed to ensure the health of the surrogate, her family, and the baby. Please contact us for details.
Here’s what some of our amazing surrogates have said about us:
“My experience was amazing from start to finish! This was my first time as a surrogate and I never felt lost or alone once throughout the entire process. The team at SPS is with you every single step of the way. They are informative and supportive. Cristie matched me with a couple who fit perfectly who are now near and dear to my heart.” – Erin B.
“SPS is truly the best. I recently completed my first journey and I could not have asked for a better experience. It was everything I hoped for and more. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to be a surrogate and to have the outstanding team and support I gained from SPS. Cristie is simply phenomenal. I couldn’t have hand picked a better couple myself. Cristie shows how much she cares and goes above and beyond. She really knows how to make everyone feel so special.” – Alyssa S.
“From the beginning, SPS is supportive all the way. They are everything you want from a surrogacy agency. They match you well with your intended parents based on the type of relationship you want to have with them, and the case managers are with you every step of the way, from med questions, to doctor visits, or just a supportive ear to listen about your day.” – Melissa E.
“When I first started looking for an agency to go with as a surrogate, I interviewed with at least 6 different ones before I decided to go with SPS. And let me tell you I have never been so happy with my decision! Not only did they do an amazing job at matching me with my intended fathers, but they paired me with the most amazing case manager Ashley! She has been there with me every step of the way.” – Heatherlyn A.
“I was a surrogate with this company and I have to say it was a life altering experience. In the BEST way! The process was simple and my case worker was there for me every step of the way with any questions or concerns I was having. I was able to give someone the ultimate gift and made new family members in the process. If I do another surrogacy it would only be with this agency because I feel like they really care about all people involved.” – Michelle D.
