What We Do
Whether you struggle with infertility or you are in a life partnership, many of us dream of creating our own families. Through Assisted Reproductive Technology, many are given that opportunity. Assisted Reproductive Technology refers to “methods causing pregnancy through means other than sexual intercourse.” Some examples include egg donation, sperm donation and in vitro fertilization. Often times, it is necessary to involve a surrogate carrier for gestation. Surrogacy is typically made by agreement or contract between a woman who agrees to carry a child (whether with her own egg or a donor egg) for another person or couple who are considered the intended parents. Surrogacy is typically formalized with an agreement or contract. While some states prohibit surrogates (and agreements relating to surrogates), North Carolina currently permits surrogacy as there are no laws prohibiting it.
