Support Local Businesses

After operating for nearly 13 years, we know all the joys and challenges it takes to run a successful business in Hawaii.  At Hawaii Surrogacy Center, supporting other small businesses in our community is one of our core values, especially during this particularly difficult time.  From gifting to B2B services, we are proud to patronize the following local businesses: 

Kaimade Milk Cookies was founded by a local mom from Kauai. They sell amazing cookie mixes that help nursing mothers boost their milk supply. We love these cookies not only our surrogates who are pumping, but also for some of our intended moms that are giving breastfeeding a go!  They have lots of delicious flavors, so be sure to check them out @kaimade and let them know Hawaii Surrogacy Center sent you! 

Decadent Oatmeal Double Chocolate Chip Milk Cookies

Honolulu Baby Co. was founded by local mom Giselle. We absolutely adore their keiki apparel and prints.  New parents will often find Giselle’s outfits in new baby gift bags from our agency.  Keep up to date with Honolulu Baby Co. items on instagram @hnlbabyco

If you ever need cookies for a party or a corporate event, check out Posh Favors! Jolie, a local baker from Honolulu, is also a mama and makes the most delicious and gorgeous sugar cookies.  Look at the beautiful cookies she made with our logo!  Find her on instagram @poshfavors.

We can’t forget about our favorite hangout spot – Keiki and the Pineapple!  This unique kid friendly coffee shop is located in Kaka’ako!  There’s an indoor and outdoor area for your kids to safely play while you sit back and relax with a refreshing iced coffee!  You can book little events for your friends and family (we have surrogate meet ups here).  Due to COVID restrictions, they are currently only open for takeout, but follow them on instagram for their latest updates @keikiandthepineapple.

There are so many other local businesses that we love supporting such as Heaven on Earth (@heavenonearthhi), where we get massages for our surrogates and Squeeze Play Hawaii (@squeezeplayhi), who made our custom screen printed shirts. 

Whatever the occasion may be, we are committed to supporting local businesses and encourage you to do the same!
