SETTING STANDARDS

The Society for Ethics for Egg Donation and Surrogacy (SEEDS) is a nonprofit group created for all U.S. agencies to have a voice in defining a set of ethical standards for egg donation and surrogacy programs. We are working to self regulate and offer the best ethical standards for all parties including our clients, clinics, donors, surrogates and others in our industry.

CANCELLED

SEEDS SPRING CONFERENCE

As announced earlier, the CDC has recommended that organizers cancel or postpone events with 50 or more people throughout the United States. This applies to our SEEDS Spring conference and therefore we will not be holding the conference this April.

Due to this unfortunate circumstance, we will be issuing refunds in full.


MEMBERSHIP

Join other U.S. Egg Donation and Surrogacy Agencies to participate in defining the ethical standards for our industry!
