Surrogacy in the USA
Our Guarantee Plans in the USA offer affordable surrogacy solutions with uncompromising quality. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, heterosexual or gay, our USA Guarantee Plans are suitable for all IP’s. In addition to our four unique Guarantee Plans we also offer a range of ‘pay as you go’ plans. Regardless of which plan you choose we offer comprehensive support throughout the entire surrogacy journey.
All of our surrogates in the USA are American citizens living in different cities. They all undergo a lengthy and rigorous screening process before being accepted in to the program and they must have had at least one healthy baby derived from a successful pregnancy. They are flown to LA for the embryo transfer (to be performed at Western Medical Institute), however during the pregnancy, they live at home with their families and maintain their usual lifestyles. During the first trimester, the pregnancies are monitored by Dr. Kumar from the Western Fertility Institute. After the first trimester, our surrogates are monitored by their personal physicians in their home city. Throughout the pregnancy, the surrogates undergo all the customary pregnancy tests in addition to regularly scheduled blood tests to ensure that they are healthy and the pregnancy is progressing normally and without complications. We recommend that from the time you are matched with your surrogate that you maintain weekly contact vis Skype and/or WhatsApp. This encourages an organic relationship to be formed so when you reach important milestones along the way there is no awkwardness felt by either party. The current waiting time for a surrogate is 1 -3 months, depending on where you are placed on the waiting list.
The Egg Donors:
Tammuz Family offers a wide variety of South-African and American egg donors. All of the Tammuz Family egg donors undergo psychological and medical screening and IP’s are provided with the donor’s genetic profile, medical history, education, employment history, interests/hobbies and family medical history. Photographs are also included in their profiles. Our donors are anonymous; however, some donors will agree to ‘meet’ via “Skype”. Intended Parents can choose either fresh or frozen egg donations from Tammuz Egg Bank, depending on the plan and the program.

The physicians are dedicated, talented, and empathetic to the needs of the patients and are at the top of their field.

Over half of his current patients are from overseas which include Australia, Austria, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, The United Kingdom, etc. Combining meticulous attention to detail, 7-day a week work ethic, the best support staff (nursing & embryology) and the latest in technology, he is able to obtain the highest pregnancy rates achievable today.

California Center for Reproductive Health
The California Center for Reproductive Health (CCRH) prides itself in helping patients from around the world achieve pregnancy. With fantastic assisted reproductive technology (ART) and third-party reproduction success rates, state-of-the-art facilities, and superior liaison services, CCRH has gained vast international appeal as a leading ART Center.
As most ART treatments (egg donation, gestational surrogacy, IVF, gender selection) involve careful monitoring and coordination between multiple parties (egg donation agencies/egg donors, surrogacy agencies/gestational surrogates, the intended parents, pharmacies, legal consultants, outside clinics…), at CCRH we recognize that making your experience as simple and uncomplicated as possible is of paramount importance for a successful outcome. As such, our Center has a dedicated team of professionals assigned to each patient/couple from the beginning to the very end of the process to ensure their experience is a positive one.
Pregnancy monitoring is coordinated by the surrogate with her local physician in her home state. The pregnancy monitoring protocol is very strict, and includes monthly ultrasounds, nuchal translucency, GTT, Anomaly scans etc.
Our plans include managing all legal services for you! From contracts with donors and surrogates to issuing a birth certificate with your names on it, we will coordinate everything for you.
What happens after the birth?
After the birth our experienced legal team will ensure that the relevant name/s will be placed on the birth certificate ASAP. The timing will depend on which state your surrogate lives in. As soon as the birth certificate is issued our legal team will then assist you in applying for a US passport for the baby. Expedited passports can be issued if you can provide the passport office with your airline tickets. Once you have your baby’s passport, he/she can travel back home with you on a tourist visa. It is advised to employ a local attorney for advise on how to gain citizenship for your child in your home country.
HIV+ Intended Parents
Tammuz Family is also proud to lead the surrogacy revolution among couples and individuals who are HIV+. This represents a welcoming change in stereotypes and allows these families to become an inseparable and integral part of the broader community. Advanced fertility technology enables couples and individuals who are living with HIV to undergo IVF and conceive perfectly healthy children. Intended Parents undergo specific tests at our clinic before the ‘sperm washing’ procedure commences. After the testing phase is completed, the sperm washing phase is carried out. Sperm washing is now internationally recognised as being a safe procedure. In May 2017, after reviewing reports on 11,500 assisted conception cycles that used the sperm washing technique, during which no woman or offspring contracted HIV, the US Government’s Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) determined the process was safe enough to endorse.
