About Us


Attorney Robert Nichols began matching intended parents with egg donors and gestational carriers in 1999 as part of his legal practice of Robert Nichols, Esq., P.C. In an effort to better serve our intended parents, egg donors, and gestational carriers, we separated our services into two separate entities - The Center for Surrogacy & Egg Donation, Inc., which performs all of the egg donor and gestational carrier matching and coordination services; and the law firm of Nichols & DeLisle, P.C., which provides legal services to clients seeking to become parents through egg donation and/or surrogacy. Our program has grown steadily through our staff's hard work and dedication to helping our clients become parents through egg donation and/or surrogacy.

The Center for Surrogacy & Egg Donation, Inc. (and its predecessor, Robert Nichols, Esq., P.C.) has helped over 1000 clients in their efforts to become parents through egg donation and/or surrogacy. Our staff looks forward to helping you on your journey to parenthood.
