All Families Surrogacy

Gestational surrogacy isn't just a business to us ~ it's also personal.

Carey Flamer-Powell

Founder & Director

Carey Flamer-Powell is the Director and Founder of All Families Surrogacy, LLC. Carey is an experienced gestational carrier, having delivered a healthy baby boy for a wonderful lesbian couple. Carey's passion for surrogacy began even before she became a gestational carrier; when she and her wife, Michele, conceived their daughter through third-party reproduction. Carey founded AFS with the intention of making surrogacy accessible to all families.
Carey is proud to serve as a Co-Founder and Co-President of the Oregon Surrogacy Professionals Association (OSPA) and the LGBT Advisor for Parents Via Egg Donation (PVED). She is as an active member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and serves as the Chairperson of the Grievance Committee for the Society for Ethics in Egg Donation and Surrogacy (SEEDS). Carey studied at Brigham Young University Hawaii and Utah Valley State and has enjoyed a professional career for the last 20+ years, focused on business ownership, legal operations, administrative management, and public relations.

Always keen to further her professional development, Carey has been accepted to Harvard Business School, taking dynamic, executive level online courses that contribute to her successful leadership of AFS. When she's not overseeing the amazing work being done at AFS, Carey enjoys spending time with her wife and young daughter, exploring and adventuring through the gorgeous Pacific Northwest.

She and her husband enjoy hosting game nights, trying new stinky cheeses with Portland's beer and cider brews, and taking their family on local adventures. When Cat isn't busy with work or family, she can almost always be found in her kitchen whipping up something fun with flour and sugar.
