Complete surrogacy solutions for discerning private individuals
IMA ART starts searching for surrogate candidates after there is a viable embryo. There are two trips for surrogacy and all steps are carefully managed by IMA ART:
Surrogacy can be an emotionally demanding journey. We work hard to make the process as smooth and comfortable as possible for high-net-worth individuals.
The best surrogacy agency, with solutions for the LGBTQIA+ community, heterosexual couples, and individuals. Delivered through meticulous IMA ART attention to detail and interpersonal care.
From finding a surrogate to introducing world-class reproductive medical care, we at IMA ART Fertility are the best agency for luxury surrogacy solutions. We organize the entire surrogacy process, walking you through every step of the way so you can focus on your journey to parenthood.
In the State of California, surrogacy is an option for LGBTQIA+ couples and singles looking to build their families. The laws in most countries around the world prohibit the LGBTQIA+ community and singles from creating happy families. IMA ART Fertility welcomes everyone to Beverly Hills to begin their journey to parenthood. We are here to help you conceive. We create heirs.
A “surrogate mother” is a woman who carries and delivers a child on behalf of intended parents. We specialize in gestational surrogacy, where a fertilized egg either from one or both of the intended parents — or sperm and egg donors — is implanted in the surrogate’s uterus and carried to delivery. Unlike traditional surrogacy, in gestational surrogacy the surrogate is not biologically related to the child.
Egg donor & surrogate solutions
While female infertility is on the rise, the need for egg donors extends to gay couples, single men and heterosexual couples. There are two options for egg donation: the use of frozen eggs, which are stored for future use, or the use of fresh eggs for immediate use. In either case, for gay couples the eggs are fertilized with sperm cells from one member of the couple or from a donor.
IMA ART Fertility follows the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) recommendations for practices utilizing gestational carriers and has constructed an extensive network of specialists at the forefront of surrogacy work.
At IMA ART Fertility we bridge dreams and reality, providing you with avenues of hope and the assurance of an excellent interpersonal experience on your unique journey.
We are committed to fulfilling your dream of a family — the gift of life
Once we’ve confirmed the health and viability of your chosen eggs and sperm, IMA ART Fertility begins the search for the best candidate to carry your child. Intended parents typically make two trips to our Los Angeles County home office, and all steps are carefully managed by IMA ART:
Medical pre-screening, and FDA and carrier screening.
Eggs and sperm are retrieved during the first 14-day trip to beautiful Beverly Hills.
Embryos frozen under cryopreservation at the fertility clinic.
After viable embryo(s) are confirmed approximately two to three weeks after PGT, IMA ART Fertility starts searching for surrogates that match the clients’ criteria.
We will conduct a background check and extensive screening of surrogates’ criminal record, financial situation, and physical aptitude including her medical history, as well as social factors, before presenting her to clients.
After being matched, the surrogate candidate will need to pass further tests by our Fertility Specialist and Clinical Psychologist to determine her medical and psychological suitability to be a surrogate.
Once confirmed, both the gestational surrogate and the client (intended parents) will engage attorneys to draft a Surrogate Agreement. The surrogate will use insurance provided through our network to ensure it covers all needs related to surrogacy.
IMA ART Fertility will arrange for an insurance provider to explain the detailed terms of the insurance policy and the underwriting process.
Next, the contract will be executed by both parties. The surrogate starts by taking IVF medications and undergoes frozen embryo transfer at an IVF clinic in our prestigious network.
Once pregnancy is confirmed, clients and attorneys evaluate the need for newborn insurance and pay a premium when the fetus heartbeat is confirmed.
During the pregnancy, the surrogate is monitored by her OBGYN and Clinical Psychologist.
At around 28 weeks of pregnancy, IMA ART Fertility works with our Reproductive Law attorney to obtain the Parental Court Order.
At 36 weeks pregnant, clients will travel to luxurious Beverly Hills to pick up the newborn baby and go back to their home city or country as a family. (This trip may be four to five weeks.)
Where is surrogacy legal?
We work exclusively with surrogate candidates who reside in surrogate-friendly states.
The vast majority of U.S. states legally protect the rights of parents seeking surrogacy. They do this through statutes and case law regarding family building. This ensures an easy transition when your child is born. IMA ART Fertility will not engage a surrogate in a state where the parents rights are not fully protected and legal issues could arise.
Matching you with the perfect surrogate
Our surrogates are educated, sincere, motivated, and excited to help create families. Surrogates are thoroughly vetted and examined to ensure a safe, stable lifestyle, good health, and a successful pregnancy and birth history. Parents may expect approximately 15 to 24 months from the initial application to the arrival of their baby.

Finding a Surrogate
The IMA ART matching team takes the necessary amount of time to assess our surrogate applicants to ensure we provide you with a wide array of high-quality surrogates to consider. For this reason, wait times for a match may be six months.
Our surrogacy candidates undergo extensive interviews about their lifestyle and support systems. We ask about their medical history, current medical conditions, support system, education, views on the surrogacy journey, and whether they have successfully carried a pregnancy to term in the past.
We ask potential surrogates important questions, including whether they are willing to terminate a pregnancy due to genetic abnormalities or selective reduction. Their answers to these questions are critical to an effective matching process.
