There’s a lot to learn about surrogacy and we’re here to support you every step of the way. We host casual information sessions throughout the year where you can learn about surrogacy requirements and meet women who’ve worked with Northwest Surrogacy Center.
For our surrogates, we host monthly meetups and yearly parties to offer support, build community and show our gratitude. Surrogacy is a fantastic journey and we’re here to provide whatever level of support you need! For our intended parents, we offer meetups every other month in Seattle, Portland and San Francisco.
Learn more at our casual, drop-in events held throughout Oregon, Colorado, Washington and California! Chat with other women who have been gestational surrogates with NW Surrogacy Center and hear honest, first-hand experiences. These events are always complimentary and family-friendly. Partners are welcome to come and ask questions, too.
Your kids are welcome to play (at no cost!) while you learn about the requirements, process, compensation and more. RSVP not required but always appreciated. Questions about the event? Let us know.
Winter 2019 info sessions will be posted soon!
We work with amazing women and support them throughout their surrogacy and beyond!

These are low-key events where NWSC families can hang out, share stories, build a community, answer questions, swap experiences and probably even network.
These are for families who are working with, or have already completed a surrogacy with, NWSC. Whether you are waiting to be matched with a surrogate or if your children are already school-aged, we’d love to have you attend. This is a great place to meet other families, share your insight, and connect with your local community.
