About Us

The IARC Difference

Thank you for contacting the International Assisted Reproduction Center (IARC). We are located in Maple Grove, Minnesota, U.S.A., but our assisted reproduction programs span the globe. We realize you are coming to us after a long struggle with fertility problems, and, despite the heroic efforts of many, you continue to search for a child. Our staff believes in every parent wanting to experience the fulfillment, joy, and challenge of parenthood should be given the opportunity to do so. We would like to help you achieve that goal. We are committed to providing personalized, informative, and organized service to all our clients.

Caring Experienced Staff; Full Service and Assistance Every Step of the Way

Our caring staff members will coordinate all aspects of your surrogacy and/or ovum donation program, including the educational, legal, medical psychological, financial and insurance issues. We have multilingual staff available who can communicate with you in English, Spanish, French, Italian and German. We provide experienced, informative, organized and personalized service throughout every step of your program.

We are unique among surrogacy programs in so many ways. Our extremely personalized programs include on-staff personnel who take care of everything for you. Our staff will answer all of your questions about legal requirements, contracts, insurance, fertility options and procedures. Our supportive staff is always available to discuss your fertility options and to make sure you have all the information you need to make the decisions that are best for you and your family.

Compassionate Services, Excellent Success Rates

IARC and its predecessors have helped bring families and infants together for almost 25 years, and we look forward to working with you.

Our compassionate and experienced staff includes and/or associates with professionals knowledgable in all of the fields relevant to our ovum donation and surrogacy programs, including law, medicine, psychology, insurance and administration. At IARC, we will answer all your questions and coordinate all aspects of your surrogacy and/or ovum donation program.

You have many fertility options available through our agency using the assistance of an ovum donor and/or surrogate. In addition, advanced fertility procedures such as blastocyst transfer, intra-venous immunoglobin therapy, assisted hatching, and intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) are all available through your selected medical clinic, if required. We have outstanding success rates in our programs when using our ovum donors and/or surrogates.

Our director, Steve Snyder, takes great joy in helping to create families. He is also very involved in the area of assisted reproduction, having been a key part of drafting proposed legislation in Minnesota to regulate the arena of fertility help. Steve has actively lobbied at the capitol for fertility rights, and he is a frequent national presenter on assisted reproduction topics. He also devotes time to infertility issues as the advocacy director and a member of the board of directors of RESOLVE of Minnesota, a non-profit organization dedicated to infertility education, support and advocacy.

At IARC, we work with our programs involving ovum donors, sperm donors, gestational and traditional surrogates. Feel free to read our information on fertility helper selection and the program costs and payment options.
