We take pride in helping you create your family.
VIVO Surrogacy was born from the desire to help intended parents find their ideal surrogate, while nurturing surrogates through pregnancy. Juggling the ins-and-outs of surrogacy can be challenging, but we make finding the right agency easy.
We devote ourselves to making such personal family matters, like surrogacy, simpler. By vetting applicants, interviewing parents and surrogates, completing surrogate medical pre-screening, and coordinating services we demystify the process. When we connect surrogates and parents, our goal is to ensure the highest chance of a healthy, successful pregnancy.
Serving as a surrogate is an amazing gift to intended parents. With diligent attention, care and support, we are honored to facilitate surrogates on their journey of giving to parents embarking on their path to parenthood.

Sharon Moayeri, MD, MPH, MS
Dr. Sharon Moayeri has been a practicing Fertility Specialist in California since 2004. Her expertise spans all aspects of infertility including, Third Party Reproduction - surrogacy and egg donation. As her private practice grew, she had more and more demand for surrogacy, but had patients feeling frustrated with the lack of available qualified surrogates. This prompted her to fill-the-need she saw within her own Practice and bore her idea to offer the same level of care to others - VIVO Surrogacy emerged.
Dr. M strives to provide parents the best opportunity to pursue their family dreams, while ensuring the safety of surrogates during their pregnancy. By anticipating, planning, and discussing with parents and surrogates their options, we limit risks and optimize the outcome of a healthy baby.

Serving all Families
Gestational surrogacy is a fertility treatment where a woman carries a baby not biologically related to her. The pregnancy results from in vitro fertilization using the intended parent's, or donor's, egg and sperm to create embryos that are transferred into the surrogate's womb - correctly called a "gestational carrier."
Reasons for surrogacy may include: mother's medical illness, absent or abnormal uterus, repeat miscarriages, failed IVF, single parents, or same-sex male couples.
We are grateful to surrogates who choose this journey of giving to help parent's fulfill their dream path to parenthood.
At VIVO Surrogacy, we pride ourselves on cultivating an inclusive environment for LGBTQIA+ individuals to expand their family. We believe that everyone should have equal access to the best available resources and services.
We can guide you whether you are in a same-sex male relationship, single, or a couple interested in reciprocal-IVF. By having connections to all your needed resources, such as egg or sperm donor, we provide solutions for creating your ideal family.
We look forward to serving all families and assisting you in your path to parenthood.
Access to surrogacy is variable in the United States with even more limited availability for parents living abroad. Fortunately, VIVO Surrogacy is located in Southern California (a surrogate-friendly state) with access to the best medical and non-medical resources, including nearby airports, hotels, and destination locales.
We understand the needs of traveling parents who want to ensure the highest quality surrogacy to fulfill their family dreams.
Whether you are meeting us from across the United States, England, Australia, China, or India we look forward to guiding you on your path to parenthood.
