LEGAL STATUS OF SURROGATE PARTNER THERAPY
While there are currently no federal or state laws prohibiting surrogate partner therapy, the profession exists in a legal gray area. There are generally no laws regulating this profession, and no state or federal licensing available.
Because there is no governmental licensing or regulation of surrogate partner therapy, any properly trained and certified surrogate will follow the guidelines and ethical code of the International Professional Surrogates Association (IPSA). Nicole Ananda was trained and certified by Dr. Susan Kaye, co-founder of the Institute for Mind Body Therapy. Nicole's practice follows the guidelines and codes of IPSA.
