The Mission

Shedding light on a very controversial and taboo aspect of childbirth with the desire to educate, inform and break through the negative stigmas associated with Surrogacy.

With Infertility on the rise, millions of women each year seek alternative methods to having children including IVF, Adoption and Surrogacy.

Surrogacy has been the black sheep of the alternative conception family. Surrogates are often portrayed as desperate women out for money or poor and abused slaves, held captive for their wombs by rich, elitists buying babies because they can.

About The Documentary

Our film and Initiative will humanize the Surrogacy process and the people who participate in it.

It's time to share the positive side of Surrogacy

Why do parents choose surrogacy over adoption and why do women become surrogates?

Why is it that this increasingly popular form of childbirth receives almost no attention from health scientists, research and policymakers, other than to typically focus on the negative aspects of it.

What is surrogacy and what is the process?

Why are so many people against Surrogacy?

The market is ripe for a documentary which explores the rise of surrogacy with integrity and honesty, without the sensationalism, but with the true heart and the emotional impact this journey has on the people who embark upon it. Facing the controversy head on, the politics, dealing with the facts and the humanness in a compelling film that desires to open the hearts and minds of the detractors and offer hope to the millions of Men and Women who simply desire to raise a child.

"Being negative about surrogacy is the new Hollywood hype. However, everyone is forgetting that there are children born through surrogacy and this negativity is impacting their lives. Some children are teased at school, some teachers view surrogacy as a negative field, and some children are forced to stand up and declare that the unique way they were conceived and born is normal for them. It is all of our responsibility to make sure that surrogacy is seen in a positive light because this is a gift we can give our children." Karen Synesiou- Director/CFO, Center for Surrogate Parenting, Inc

"We embarked on this journey because we were true believers that some babies come from the stomach and others from the heart. To us surrogacy provided the possibility of having our own flesh and blood child. And not in our wildest dreams could we have imagined that a child could bring so much love into our hearts. Our biggest fear is that we brought this beautiful soul into a world that may not accept him or worst yet judges him for being different. It's therefore our duty to show the world the endless possibilities and beauty that surrogacy could bring to deserving parents. Its ok to be different and maybe one day surrogacy can be the new normal." - Christy Amireh, Mother of Grayson, Born through Surrogacy in 2015
