We’re a time-tested agency who goes the extra mile to make sure you have all your needs met. When you work with us, you’re supported from start to finish.
No! The Intended Parents fund a trust account that pays everything directly related to your surrogacy journey including all fees and costs related to the cycle. If you require specific testing (or retesting) directly related to your own health outside of the normal Surrogate screening process in order to clear you to proceed with a surrogacy cycle, you may be responsible for those costs.
CAN I BE A SURROGATE IF MY TUBES ARE TIED?
Yes you can be a Surrogate if your tubes are tied!
HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO VISIT THE FERTILITY CLINIC?
You will need to complete 6 to 8 doctor appointments. The visits occur during the early morning to avoid time conflicts with work or school. We will do everything to accommodate the process to your schedule and dates of unavailability. We require that you take the entire day off on the day of the retrieval.
HOW MUCH WILL I BE COMPENSATED?
Surrogate compensation plus additional benefits range from $45,000.00 to $95,000.00 depending upon experience and the budget of the Intended Parent(s) you select as your match.
WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF SURROGACY?
Similar risks to being pregnant with and giving birth to your own children but it is best to speak with an OB.
This will depend entirely on you and the Intended Parent(s). Some Surrogates maintain a very close relationship, while others have no contact after the birth. It is important to communicate your expectations to our agency and the Intended Parents during your interviews and prior to being matched.
