LEGAL STATUS OF SURROGATE PARTNER THERAPY
There are no federal or state laws addressing or prohibiting surrogate partner therapy, and there are currently no governmental organizations regulating this profession. State or federal licensing is not yet available for SPT practitioners.
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 Surrogate Partner Collective (SPC) and 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 SPC & IPSA.
