Are you a parent (of any nationality and sexual identity) through surrogacy in the US?

Are you a surrogate working in the US to help such parents have a family?

Are you an egg donor in such an arrangement

Are you an agency or clinic practitioner coordinating it?

My name is Marcin Smietana and I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Berkeley (Department of Gender and Women’s Studies), working with my faculty advisor, Professor Charis Thompson. In partnership with Professor Sarah Franklin from the University of Cambridge, UK (Reproductive Sociology Research Group), we are carrying out a study of surrogacy. 

If you are in one of the above categories and you are in the surrogacy process in the US (initial arrangements, pregnancy, or postpartum) or you have completed it, we would like to invite you to take part in this study.

For further information about the participation in the study please see Participation
