About VSN

We Are Vermont Surrogacy Network

Vermont Surrogacy Network provides families throughout Vermont, New England, and the world with an ethical, affordable, and supportive environment in which intended parents and gestational carriers are matched and guided through the process of surrogacy.

VSN dedicates its efforts to serving intended parents and gestational carriers with diligence and compassion, ensuring all parties understand the complex process of gestational surrogacy.

VSN offers a naturally supportive environment by keeping surrogacy personal with video conferencing, in-person interviews, and consultations. Both intended parents and gestational carriers are carefully screened to give families the greatest chance of achieving a successful match. Vermont Surrogacy Network is invested in ongoing surrogacy support from our first conversation to post-delivery.

Your dreams are our priority.

Kurt M. Hughes

Kurt M. Hughes has been involved with adoption and assisted fertility family-building since 1995. As part of his law practice with Tarnelli & Hughes, he is a fellow of the Academy of Adoption and Assisted Reproduction Attorneys, an invitation-only organization of highly qualified adoption and assisted fertility lawyers. He has provided legal services for hundreds of adoptions and assisted fertility arrangements, including gestational surrogacy, and egg and sperm donation contracts. He helped write the Vermont Parentage Act of 2018, which provides legal security to families participating in assisted fertility and gestational surrogacy arrangements. Kurt has long seen the need for a local matching organization dedicated to the needs of New England and New York intended parents who wish to build their families through gestational surrogacy, as well as the needs of Vermont women who wish to become gestational surrogates to help others achieve the dream of parenthood. He is very excited to be a partner with Jes Stumpf in the Vermont Surrogacy Network, the first and only surrogacy matching organization based in Vermont and run by Vermonters. Kurt is a resident of Hinesburg, Vermont.
