I have a friend of a friend who is looking to be a surrogate and prefers to help a gay family. Are there agencies that work with surrogates that are more gay friendly? Apparently she has not had a child of her own nor does she intend to which I think most places expect. Does anyone have recommendations for her?

I think most agencies and fertility clinics generally want a surrogate to have a track record of at least one term pregnancy.

I'd suggest searching and matching independently but DEFINITELY GET AN EXPERIENCED SURROGACY LAWYER.

I gave birth to a surrogate baby 3.5 months ago and I learned a lot about the process. I wasn't matched with a gay couple, but if your friend wants any perspective on surrogacy in general, feel free to put her in touch.
