Amy Stewart Kaplan, President/Founder of West Coast Surrogacy, began her career in reproductive medicine in 1990, and has since devoted her life to the field.
Amy has worked in various roles in the field throughout her career, including Practice Manager for a Southern California IVF center. Reproductive medicine has played a significant role in Amy’s personal life as well. After having her son Tyler, she required the assistance of a reproductive endocrinologist to become pregnant again with her daughter Mia.
In 1990, Amy donated her eggs for two couples, resulting in the births of three children. While one of the donations remains private, the other family has welcomed Amy and her family into their lives, resulting in a special relationship that continues today. It would be 15 years later that Amy would realize a longtime desire to become a surrogate mother. Amy calls the experience of carrying twins as a surrogate “life altering” and an event that “had a profound impact on who (she is) today.” Her participation as a gestational surrogate gives her a unique insight into the surrogate mother process that is appreciated by carriers and intended parents alike.
West Coast Surrogacy was founded in 2007 and has helped hundreds of families from around the world.
