During our surrogacy journey, our embryo split resulting in twins! Our Surrogate was originally going to visit her previous OB who had delivered her children. However, due to the distance from where she lived to the hospital, she needed to see a doctor at a closer location. Through their vast network, Physician’s Surrogacy was able to find a practicing OB closer to the hospital and ensured that they had the capacity to handle a high-risk case. They also made sure that the hospital had the proper level NICU. It was all worked out so quickly and our Surrogate was able to be seen by the new OB the same week!

How to find a Surrogate?

The best way to find a Surrogate Mother is to go through a reputable surrogacy agency, such as Physician’s Surrogacy. It is crucial you have surrogacy professionals carry out the process so your journey remains safe and seamless.

Some ask a family member, and others pursue independent journeys, but both scenarios lack safeguards for yourself and your Surrogate. Moreover, an agency ensures you have legal support from the surrogacy contract to parentage, which you may be missing otherwise.

What is a Gestational Surrogate?

A Gestational Surrogate or a Gestational Carrier is a woman who becomes pregnant using an embryo created by the process of in vitro fertilization (IVF). The Surrogate may achieve pregnancy using the mother’s eggs and the father’s sperm. Gestational surrogacy also offers the option to use donor eggs or donor sperm. There will be no genetic relationship to the Surrogate. 

What is surrogacy?

In surrogacy, the (Surrogate Mother) carries and delivers a baby for another woman, couple, or individual person (the Intended Parent). In gestational surrogacy, the gestational carrier does not have a biological relation to the child, due to the Surrogate Mother’s eggs not being used in the process. Instead, the embryo is created by using the intended father’s sperm or donor sperm and the intended mother’s eggs or donor eggs.

Who can become a parent with our surrogacy program?

Anyone can. Physician’s Surrogacy wants to help you build your family regardless of martial status, sexual orientation or gender identity. The U.S. states that our Surrogates come from all have very favorable legislation and don’t restrict surrogacy to only traditional family models. That means that unlike a lot of other countries that offer surrogacy programs e.g. the Ukraine, anyone can become a parent with us in California. Other countries don’t permit single parents, unmarried couples, homosexual couples or intended parent(s) who need a double donor to become a parent through surrogacy due to legislation. This is why the U.S. is such a popular place for surrogacy journeys from parents around the world.

Who is a Surrogate mother?

A Surrogate is a woman who carries and delivers a baby for another individual/couple who is otherwise unable to have a baby or carry a pregnancy. In traditional surrogacy, the Surrogate gets artificially inseminated with the father’s sperm/donor sperm. A traditional Surrogate is the baby’s biological mother as her eggs were used to create the embryo. This practice is antiquated and has been replaced with gestational surrogacy.
A gestational Surrogate or gestational carrier does not have genetic connections with the baby as intended mother’s eggs/donor eggs are used to create the embryo. Physician’s Surrogacy only offers gestational surrogacy.

Who requires a Surrogate mother?

Having a Surrogate mother can be a viable option in cases such as:

  • Inability to conceive because of uterine irregularities
  • History of multiple failed IVF cycles without a known cause
  • Delayed parenthood due to career or other life circumstances.
  • Due to circumstances, unable to carry a pregnancy and have a biological child.
  • Underlying medical condition that could cause great risk to yourself or your baby during pregnancy
  • Same-sex male couples or single fathers

Surrogacy Timeline | During Surrogacy | Physician Surrogacy

Contact Occurs During The Journey – Physician’s Surrogacy

The amount of contact between the Intended Parents and the Surrogate varies case by case. Both parties shall determine & agree upon the contract during the matching process. Some cultures are a little more closed off than others; however, the relationship and communication develop as the journey progresses.

How long does it take until I find a Surrogate?

It depends on the agency you choose to work with. Most agencies have a 6-18 month waiting list to match with a surrogate. Some also require you to sign a contract and pay agency fees for them to begin the process of matching. Physician’s Surrogacy offers complimentary matching, and you can match with your Surrogate as quickly as a week. On average, the typical timeline is two weeks.

International Intended Parents-How many times do I have to come to the U.S. during the process?

If you do not live in the United States, you will need to travel to the U.S. at least once. This trip is for the delivery of your child. Another time would be to create your embryos at an U.S. clinic. If you prefer creating the embryos without having to travel, you can choose to either have your embryo transported or send your eggs/sperm to the U.S. clinic. Should you choose to come to the U.S. for the embryo creation the trip will include an introductory meeting with the Surrogate. On the same visit, we conduct your medical screening and then the creation of the embryos at the IVF clinic.

What does the surrogacy process entail?

Generally, you can break down the surrogacy process into six stages: Consultation, Matching, Screening, Legal, Conception, and Pregnancy/Delivery

*Consultation: The entire process begins with a complimentary surrogacy consultation with our experienced team which requires no cost. In this meeting, you’ll have an opportunity to share your story with us and why you’ve chosen surrogacy to grow your family. We will explain our process and program offerings and answer any questions you might have.

*Matching: Our average matching timeline is one week. This successful and dynamic matching timeline is attributed to our comprehensive 3-4-month medical pre-screening. Our in-house OB’s supervise the pre-screening process of our Surrogates. Before we present a potential Surrogate candidate, she has undergone a thorough background check. Moreover, our physician team has already screened all of her pregnancy histories. Lastly, she has undergone proper and necessary lab work, qualifying her to become an eligible candidate through our agency.

*Screening: Once we have a confirmed two-way match (Intended Parents & Surrogate), the Surrogate will go through the final stages of medical and psychological screening. The whole process takes place through the IVF clinic which the Intended Parents have chosen. Once the Surrogate has been cleared, we move into the legal phase.

*Legal: The legal contract phase is typically two to four weeks. Your attorney drafts the agreement and works with your Surrogate’s attorney to establish the terms of all aspects of the journey, including parental rights and obligations of both parties. Later there will be a second legal stage to establish parentage. You will have unlimited access to your attorney and your Surrogate’s attorney during the contractual phase and the entire journey.

Our flat rate cost structure includes:
The Surrogate mothers’ compensation cost.
Legal representation for both sides.
Medical expenses.
Insurance.
The agency fee.
Almost all of these surrogacy-related procedures come with predetermined costs.

*Conception: Your Surrogate can begin her IVF treatment after receiving medical, psychological, and legal clearance.

*Pregnancy/Delivery: Throughout the pregnancy phase of the journey, you will have detailed weekly updates. Your case manager will weekly updates with all new information regarding your Surrogate and child.

As a physician-managed surrogacy agency we ensure that our Surrogates are medically prescreened before even being presented to you. The IVF clinic you work with also plays a vital role. Your fertility clinic can help you determine your best chances of achieving a successful pregnancy. Not only that, but also the clinic will perform it under your specific circumstances. Besides, most surrogacy professionals will perform multiple embryo transfers. It continues until achieving a healthy pregnancy. This makes the overall surrogacy success rate very high.

How are finances handled?| Intended Parents | Physician Surrogacy

All funds related to your surrogacy (including medical expenses for the Surrogate) will be held in a trust account. An experienced escrow company will manage the account.
