The National Exchange for Egg Donation and Surrogacy

Infertility no longer needs to be a barrier to having a baby of your own. Today, collaborative reproduction – becoming a parent with the help of egg donation or surrogacy – gives you more options and more hope than ever before.

NEEDS – The National Exchange for Egg Donation and Surrogacy – can help you:

  • Select your ideal egg donor – from the privacy of your home – using our comprehensive online database of pre-screened donors
  • Locate a compassionate, trustworthy surrogate carrier
  • Find the medical, legal, and other resources you need from our extensive community of experienced service providers

Since 1992, hundreds of hopeful parents have turned to NEEDS (formerly NESPA) as their trusted, knowledgeable guide through the emotional, sometimes daunting process of collaborative reproduction. NEEDS is there for you when it takes more than two people to make a baby.
