Announcing the arrival of Surrogacy International, Inc. - The first surrogacy agency to come to California’s Central Coast

– Local attorneys and co-founders, Robert Walmsley and Marlea Jarrette, are proud to announce the arrival of Surrogacy International, Inc. (SI, Inc.) - The first surrogacy agency of its kind to come to California’s Central Coast.


Local attorneys and co-founders, Robert Walmsley and Marlea Jarrette, are proud to announce the arrival of Surrogacy International, Inc. (SI, Inc.) - The first surrogacy agency of its kind to come to California’s Central Coast. Specializing in Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART), including surrogate parenting and egg donation, SI, Inc. is passionate about building families and is committed to connecting the very special women in our own community with deserving infertile families from around the world. SI, Inc. is a truly unique company, providing its clients not only with high-quality legal expertise, but also with the comforts and convenience of a local surrogacy agency.

In 1993, lawyer and co-founder Robert Walmsley litigated and tried Johnson v. Calvert, one of the first cases establishing surrogacy law in California. His commitment and experience continues to define surrogacy today. With nearly 40 years of combined legal experience and a commitment building families, it is SI, Inc.’s mission, says Robert, is “to provide every client with the legal assurances and personal support needed to begin building families with certainty and confidence.”

California is considered a surrogacy-friendly state and the recent California Assembly Bill 1217 has continued to improve the laws and regulations, making surrogacy arrangements even more definitive. Despite these laws and progressions, however, little is known about the surrogacy options and benefits available right here on the Central Coast. “Everyone talks about the terms IVF and test tube babies,” says Robert, “but no one seems to understand the benefits of surrogacy in our very own community.” As parents and having personally experienced the challenges of infertility, Robert and Marlea, genuinely believe that parenthood is a gift like none other. “It is a choice of incredible responsibility and tremendous pride that everyone should be able to experience.”

Surrogacy International, Inc. represents three different groups, intended parents, surrogates and egg donors. Intended parents are those infertile individuals and couples who are ready to begin their own family trees through assisted reproductive technologies. SI, Inc. has the experience and expertise to represent these deserving families both locally and internationally. These families, however, are only one piece of this incredible parenting journey. As an agency, SI, Inc. strives to find and connect these parents with very special local women interested in becoming surrogates and egg donors. Surrogates and egg donors indeed receive significant financial compensation, but it is perhaps the satisfaction of having fulfilled a lifetime dream and helping create a new family that is immeasurable.

Surrogacy International, Inc. is currently accepting applications from intended parents, surrogates and egg donors. SI, Inc. strives to keep their databases full of diverse women and is always in search of unique personalities and physical traits. The initial application, found on the website, takes only a few minutes and may be your next step to parenthood or even financial independence. You are encouraged to learn more about your fertility options and benefits, risks and benefits by visiting the website, www.surrogacyinternationalinc.com, Facebook page, or attending SI, Inc.’s next surrogacy conference.

As always Surrogacy International, Inc.’s staff is available to candidly answer any of your questions or concerns. We are open Monday through Friday 8:30 am-5:00 pm. “Whether you are starting your own family or looking to help another family begin, we are honored and humbled to begin this journey with you,” says Marlea, parent and co-founder of Surrogacy International, Inc.

About Surrogacy International, Inc.: After decades of experience, lawyers Robert Walmsley and Marlea Jarrette decided to open Jarrette & Walmsley, LLP, a law office focused on their fields of expertise, family law and family development. After much success and positive support, Marlea and Robert wanted to expand their efforts and truly assist their clients through the entire process of assisted reproduction. Thus Surrogacy International, Inc. was born, uniquely combining the benefits of a full service surrogacy agency with the high-quality legal counsel its clients deserve.
