"Maybe a reason why all the doors are closed, so you could open one that leads you to the perfect road."
— Katy Perry
Catherine Tucker is the Co-Director of New England Surrogacy.
Why she started working in surrogacy
“My own experiences with infertility are what led me to the field. I started off slowly, by venturing into the legal side of things by opening the first assisted reproduction law practice in New Hampshire. I then had the opportunity to rewrite New Hampshire's antiquated surrogacy laws and I jumped at the chance. So with these great new laws in place, the next natural step seemed to be to open a surrogacy agency to help surrogacy participants both (intended parents and surrogates) get the most benefit from these laws. Then Ellen, Jennifer, and I decided to merge our resources together to best be able to provide services for surrogates and intended parents throughout New England."
Why she’s passionate about working in this industry
“I understand what intended parents are going through because I have been there myself. There were people who helped me form my family, and I want to pay it forward by helping others!”
How she’d use her surrogacy compensation
“Home renovations like a finishing the basement, sound like a good idea. Is that too practical of an answer?”
What kind of intended parents she’d want to work with
"Any! I don't see how I could possibly choose with so many deserving intended parents out there.”
