  1. Hello,

    I am Dr. Sharvari Karandikar, Assistant Professor at the College of Social Work, Ohio State University, USA. I am contacting you because my colleague Dr. Lindsay Gezinski and I are interested in conducting research with couples that have used transnational surrogacy services. We are specifically studying your motivations and experiences of international surrogacy. We would also like to learn about your perceptions of the surrogate mothers. The interviews will take 30-40 minutes and will be conducted via Skype or telephone. We will give you a $10 amazon gift card as reimbursement for participating in the study.
    This research will help us develop empirical knowledge base on experiences, problems and difficulties of international gestational surrogacy. This information is not available to social scientists and there is a big gap in the literature on this topic. This research will also help us advocate for rights of parents and surrogates involved in the process, in doing so we hope to be instrumental in informing social work practices and policies on the issue.

    Your experience is very important, so we hope you will consider participating in this study. Please let us know if you are interested. You can email us your decision to participate at

    Thank you.
