Surrogacy

We’re pleased to offer you surrogacy benefits through WINFertility to help grow your family.

The experts at WINFertility are here to support you with a variety of resources, including:

  • Nurse and behavioral health consultations for you and your partner (if applicable)
  • WINFertility Nurse Care Managers for education on what your surrogate is experiencing

Support in Selecting Your Surrogate

Choosing the right surrogate is a process, and WINFertility’s experienced team assists in referring you to the perfect partners. Their surrogacy administration includes referrals to pre-screened surrogates, legal counsel specializing in third-party reproduction, social workers and counselors, and pregnancy-monitoring support.

Note that due to IRS regulations, surrogacy benefits through WINFertility are considered taxable income.
