    1. My husband and I need a surrogate in order to have a baby. I got my uterus removed when I was 20 due to cervical cancer. Looking for some recommendations. Thank you so much.

      • Hello Icecream,

        I’m so sorry to hear that. I assume you both are US residents. There are numerous fertility clinics which offer surrogacy treatments. Which one you’ll choose depend on various factors such as cost, location and legal situation of your federal state.

        Therefore, I recommend you fill out our Fertility Report. This report includes a list with clinics in your area that provide surrogacy treatments as well as a cost estimate so you’ll get an idea what your treatment will cost.

        wish you all the best!
