The Yfa difference

The MATCHMAKINg

PROCESS

YFA is a boutique agency, and it’s important to us to maintain that small “family” feel. For that reason we don’t sign parents up to an endless waitlist, and instead, we only bring on the Intended Parents we feel we could match reasonably quickly with our currently available surrogates. The matchmaking process is very important to us so we take the time to match people organically depending on their viewpoints, location and specific desires. We know your journey has had enough disappointment, so don’t want to waste your time or money on someone who is not the right fit!

02.

Unique Perks and benefits

 

We believe happy and healthy surrogates grow happy and healthy babies, so we offer special program perks such as our comprehensive Health & Wellness Package tailored to maximize the success of your baby’s gestation. The package includes a consult with a prenatal dietitian, doula support, and extra perks such as maternity massages or chiropractic care. Studies have shown that doula support can reduce labor 25% and the need for a cesarean section by 50%. The happiness and comfort of our surrogates is extremely important to us.

FIRST-HAND EXPERIENCE AND GENUINE CARE

Our founder Megan Edgecumbe has walked in the shoes of many of our intended parents, and doesn’t take any chances when it comes to screening efficiently for the best possible surrogates. Her own experience with infertility has given her expert knowledge and a network of top doctors on the East and West Coasts who she relies on for the latest medical tests and breakthroughs in the world of third-party reproduction. We know how long and painful the journey can be, and we do EVERYTHING possible to make your surrogacy journey a breath of fresh air.
