SENSIBLE Successes


Low-cost “Assisted Surrogacy” only from SENSIBLE

Assisted Surrogacy is a hybrid between an Independent journey and a full Agency program, with all the services but lower costs.

Assisted Surrogacy has no agency or agency fees. Instead, independent specialists perform all of the agency services for a fraction of what agencies charge. These freelance vendors often save tens-of-thousands in the total cost of your journey.

    Assisted Surrogacy services include:

  • Finding your qualified surrogate mother
  • Shepherding her through full medical and psychological evaluation
  • Managing your surrogate’s legal clearance and contract negotiations
  • Arranging for the surrogate’s total compensation and benefits package
  • Complete oversight of the surrogate and pregnancy until you are home with your baby
  • Working with Intended Parents to remove uncertainties and improve the likelihood of a successful pregnancy

SENSIBLE’s exclusive Assisted Surrogacy program is perfect for parents who can’t perform all the surrogacy tasks themselves, but who also want to avoid working with an agency. Our network of independent service providers can do all the work of a full agency for no agency fee. Parents don’t need to lift a finger.

SENSIBLE’s Consulting Services

Our consultants can be your low-cost Sherpa throughout your journey, guiding your every step. We can make an Independent program a realistic and successful option.

We offer our detailed expertise to help you manage every part of your Independent surrogacy journey. An experienced SENSIBLE consultant can guide Intended Parents through their own Independent Surrogacy journey. Our consultant provides step-by-step instructions on every aspect pf the process. We will accompany the parents throughout their journey — giving instruction, providing unique insights, and resolving any obstacle or unforeseen difficulty.

The SENSIBLE service can further reduce costs over a traditional agency program by referring parents to lower cost service providers. Agencies typically have exclusive commitments to clinics, vendors, and legal resources. SENSIBLE is 100% independent, and we’re free to refer clients to the most affordable and successful options in the U.S. or worldwide.

If you already have an agency or clinic, SENSIBLE can act as a 100% independent consultant to advise and guide you through the many details and decisions of your surrogacy journey. We can give you the attention and insights that your agent or clinic may not be able to provide.

SENSIBLE International Surrogacy Programs

Since 2012, SENSIBLE has built relationships with the very best programs worldwide. We bring these best-of-the-best programs to our clients as the most secure, low-cost solutions.

SENSIBLE only offers programs in countries with supportive legal frameworks, friendly cultural attitudes, and advanced health-care systems. If you have a program with us, you can be assured of a successful result and an easy path home with your newborn baby.

Surrogacy in Ukraine:

For married couples, Ukraine is now the most affordable, legally secure and stable option for surrogacy worldwide. The country has the strongest legal framework of any country (more than so-called “surrogacy friendly” U.S. destinations like California or Nevada). Costs in Ukraine are also reasonable, and a fraction of U.S. programs.

Surrogacy in Colombia:

The best and most affordable options for LGBT families is now in Bogota, Colombia. The little-known country is an increasingly popular option. The medical services in Bogota are rated higher than in the United States or Canada, cost of surrogacy is low. The country also has a very progressive record on gay rights, including marriage and adoption rights..

Other International Destinations:

Check out our list of popular destinations for a reliable and honest assessment of the risks and opportunities. Even in countries where we don’t sponsor programs, we offer insights, consulting services or (in some cases) advisories to intended parents.

Our Guiding Principle

SENSIBLE is 100% independent and NOT financially tied to any particular clinic or service provider. We don’t receive any kickbacks or commissions from clinics or other vendors, and we don’t add any markup on the procedures or services you buy. Our success is not measured in money, but in happy endings.

Our Ethical Approach:

SENSIBLE believes that the best surrogacy journey involves a Loving Couple working in a personal relationship with a Surrogate Mother to form a new family. We encourage parents to be personally involved in their surrogacy journey, and to share this amazing experience with their Surrogate.

This revolutionary approach makes the surrogacy process smoother and more rewarding, while dramatically reducing the cost of surrogacy.

We can coordinate your entire journey for you, working with our superior IVF clinics, egg donation agencies, and other services. We can also guide you through your own journey to help you save money and reach your dreams.

However you choose, we make starting your new family easy and affordable.

We have low-cost programs in the United States, Ukraine, and Colombia. Our Independent Surrogacy services are unique and can help defray the cost of surrogacy in the United States.

A Letter from our Founder…


Bill HoughtonWelcome! My name is Bill Houghton, the founder of SENSIBLE Surrogacy. I know first-hand the value of surrogacy – because I’ve been through it too!

My husband and I spent years struggling with adoption agencies, fertility treatments, and consultants that only seemed interested in our money. Like you, we researched all the possible options, documented the success rates, and compared the costs. We’ve gone through the process that you are now going through.

I personally have gone through the process twice, and I have two beautiful boys that attest to the success of surrogacy as a convenient and ethical way to build a family.

SENSIBLE works with any parent considering IVF and surrogacy. My personal goal is to answer any question you may have about surrogacy programs worldwide, and to help you understand the process fully. My promise has always been to perform that service free of charge – because I understand the value of surrogacy for childless couples.

If you think surrogacy is a good option for you, we have negotiated the most successful and affordable programs available worldwide. We can guide you through your own journey, or we can serve as your coordinator and manage every step on your behalf. Since 2011, I have built relationships with clinics worldwide, and a network of first-class service providers including lawyers, translators, notaries, travel agents, and more. We are all committed to helping couples like you conceive your new family in safe and affordable programs worldwide.

I know the entire process can seem daunting… but our job is to make things as easy as possible. I invite you to contact us by email or using the form on this website. We are here to help.

Thanks and warm regards,
— Bill Houghton
