If you’ve thought about starting your family via surrogacy, you’ve probably already done a bit of googling and other web-based research.

The internet is a mine of information, of course – but it can be difficult to find exactly what you need. That’s why we‘ve done the work for you by hand-selecting the best resources available. And nothing beats a good book!

There are dozens of excellent tomes out there that can help to shed light on the surrogacy process. Many of these are written by – and for – people just like you. The great thing about a book is that it’s more likely to have been properly researched and edited, unlike some of the information you can find on the internet.

Family Source Consultants CEO, Staci Swiderski, wanted to join the fun and provide some insight on reading materials she finds valuable. Here is her hand-picked list of the best-reviewed books for Intended Parents (and their kids)!

Staci Swiderski, CEO and owner of Family Source Consultants has been involved in the field of reproductive medicine since 2002.
