Surrogates, Egg Donors & Intended Parents Are Our Top Priority.

Great Beginnings Surrogacy and Egg Donation Services (GBSEDS) is a surrogacy and egg donation agency based in La Jolla, California. We opened our doors more than 20 years ago as Cori’s Egg Donor and Surrogacy Services, Inc. This quickly became one of the most successful agencies in California. As a California psychologist, I was eager to bring my 20 years’ experience providing direct service to families by building a strong support system for intended parents and surrogates working to grow new families. I was lucky enough to becoming a egg donor and surrogate coordinator with Cori’s in 2011. I quickly fell in love with this amazing work and with the high standards and excellent reputation Cori’s represented in our industry. When Cori retired in 2014, I expanded my role to agency owner. Feedback from clients spurred us to adapt our services to focus exclusively on the growing need for exceptional surrogacy services. So changing our name to Great Beginnings Surrogacy Services was the next logical step. A few years later, we again responded to client needs and restored our all-in-one third-party reproductive services business model by reopening our Egg Donation Services. You may reach out to me at any time via email ( or call me at 858-732-4277 (GBSS).

Our Focus Is You.

GBSEDS Surrogates and Intended Parents (IPs) are our top priority. We provide domestic and international Intended Parent support and enhance their experience with agency partners with whom we’ve developed close collaborations over the years. 

Our partners assist us in making each aspect of the gestational surrogacy process move forward in a smooth and professional manner. We work primarily with California surrogates. Averaging 30-50 journeys a year, we provide personalized care to our IPs and surrogates. 

We provide support as our surrogates complete screenings at the beginning of the surrogacy process, attend appointments at the fertility center with the fertility specialist and then transition to the care of an obstetrician (OB). We provide many other support services to our surrogates and Intended Parents according to their individual needs.
