"Solving infertility is my passion."
Dr. Sunday has been in the infertility world for a long time - 23 years to be exact! As an embryologist and lab director of several fertility programs, she was able to be a part of 1000s of new families through infertility testing, inseminations (IUI), and in vitro fertilization (IVF). As the founder of The Surrogacy Consultant, she has added even more successes through surrogacy.
Dr. Sunday is also expanding her own family. Not only is she the mother of 3 wonderful children (and pretty much any animal that appears on her doorstep), she also recently became engaged to Mr. Dr. Sunday, a great package deal which comes with bonus kids and grandkids!
"I knew it was a perfect match when he told me I could have as many chickens as I wanted."
Now that's true love.
When Dr. Sunday is not building families, she can be found at the local college teaching classes, working in community activism, serving as past President of a nonprofit that is tackling rural food insecurity, and starting a women's shelter. On weekends, you may find her feeding her menagerie of farm animals, working in her garden, or digging up dinosaur bones.
Dr. Sunday Crider started her infertility profession after finishing a PhD in Cell Biology and Biochemistry from Texas Tech University. She worked Embryologist at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas, as well as New England Medical Center in Boston, before coming back home to Texas to build two IVF programs as Laboratory Director. She has also served as off-site Director for New Directions Fertility Center in Phoenix and Cryobank America in Dallas.
Leaving the clinical environment in 2013, Dr. Crider began consulting in the surrogacy field as Chief Scientific Liaison, Case Manager, and co-owner of a surrogacy firm. Recognizing the need to offer a more personalized approach, she launched The Surrogacy Consultant in 2019. Between her IVF and Surrogacy years, she's been a part of building thousands of families.
Ethics in the surrogacy community are one of Dr. Sunday's top priorities. She is a member of the Society for Ethics in Egg Donation and Surrogacy (SEEDS), where she has acted as Vice=President since 2021. During that time, she served on the Standards Committee, drafting and implementing guidelines and standards for Surrogacy and Egg Donation.
