About Alternative Reproductive Resources (ARR):*

Since 1992 Alternative Reproductive Resources (ARR) has been pleased to help many same-sex couples build their family. As gay couples increasingly explore their options, we work hard to ease couples into the world of egg donation and gestational surrogacy. As one of the first egg donor and gestational surrogacy agencies, we consider it our responsibility and honor to set and live by the high standards you expect – in terms of ethics, principles and performance. Coming together to help create families, we ensure the best interests of intended parents, egg donors and gestational surrogates are met. We are personal and hands-on, advocating for you, encouraging you and celebrating your successes. We are privileged to stay by your side until your journey is completed. Our approach differentiates ARR globally, ensuring an unparalleled experience for everyone traveling alternative paths to parenthood.

Agency reviews and comments

Response
The staff was extremely helpful and accomodating, even when I was getting a little crazy during the pregnancy. They helped us find our egg donor and our amazing surrogate and held our hand the entire way. They were hnestly amazing. I would highly recommend them to any couple, same-sex or otherwise.
