Welcome To SEAM
Our Mission is to Bring the Joy of Parenthood to as Many Families as We Possibly Can
We believe that every person who wants to be a parent should be able to be a parent.
And surrogacy can be a long frustrating, emotionally challenging process. There are many moving pieces, and financial management can be one of the toughest aspects to deal with alone.
That’s why we provide escrow account management services for third-party reproduction agreements. Because you have more important things to worry about than reviewing expenses and approving payments.
MEET THE TEAM
Each and every member of our team has served as a surrogate and is deeply passionate about third-party reproduction. We know the happiness our children bring us, and we want to help you capture that same joy, too.
Dominique Side, Director
A former surrogate, Dominique saw SEAM as her chance to help hundreds of people create the families they wanted — way more than she could through surrogacy alone. As Director (aka “the big boss”) you might not see her much on a daily basis, but she’s always happy to step in and lend a helping hand, especially when the surrogacy process becomes overwhelming.
Between her 4 children and 7 companies, Dominique doesn’t get much time off, but when she does you can find her traveling around the world or relaxing in a spa…preferably at the same time.
Christi Allen, Account Specialist
A master of processing requests, validating documents, and interpreting contracts, Christi has had SEAM manage her escrow account for three of her five surrogacy journeys and loved the process, so she joined our team. In addition to striving to make the financial side of surrogacy as easy as possible, Christi is a certified paralegal, currently studying to achieve a bachelor’s degree in accounting.
When she’s not at work, you can find Christi crafting, playing trumpet and french horn in her community band, and shuttling her 4 teenagers between football, cheer, lacrosse, band, and school.
Beth Watson, New Accounts Specialist & Office Manager
Beth’s smiling face is the first one you’ll “see” at SEAM. She runs our office and makes sure you have all of the information you’ll need and complete clarity about what is to come. She loves being able to make a difference in people’s lives every day, even if it’s something as small as answering the phone. Beth has been involved with surrogacy since 2009 and has served as a gestational surrogate three times.
When the world permits, you can find Beth out walking, swimming, or taking road trips to Six Flags with her husband, two teen sons, and their labradoodle, Toby. (The cat prefers to stay at home.)
We strive to always do the right thing by you and your surrogate. We disburse payments every business day, and are a neutral third party who balances the needs of all.
We offer 24/7 account access online and document every transaction. You should and will know what’s going on with your money at all times.
We’ve been intimately involved with third-party reproduction before and understand how challenging it can be. Our account managers are here to help whenever you need us, even if it’s just for a supportive ear.
Let Us Help You Bring Your Family Home
We know all the ins and outs, the ups and downs, the victories and the heartbreaks of this process. And we’ll be right there beside you the whole way.
