Praveena Nallainathan, JD, MSW


Praveena Nallainathan is a corporate immigration attorney who serves as the co-head of the Immigration and Nationality practice of Proskauer Rose LLP, headquartered in New York City. Praveena values the opportunity to share her surrogacy story and perspective to give hope to other singles and couples who are striving to become parents. Her fertility journey began in 2008 when her daughter, Ayanna, was still born. Subsequently, Praveena (married at the time) endured years of unsuccessful IVF attempts and surgeries. She learned from her doctors that while she was unable to carry a pregnancy to term, she had viable, healthy eggs. Praveena decided that gestational surrogacy was the right option as she sought to become a mother. In 2015, she was matched with a gestational carrier in Minnesota. Praveena’s daughter, Priya, was born on January 4, 2016. Praveena and Priya live in New Jersey.
