The total cost of a surrogacy arrangement includes numbers of factors such as agency fees, Surrogate compensation, medical expenses, fertility clinic fees and legal fees. However, there are more parameters that also affect the surrogacy costs like country, state, special medical condition etc. Hence, depending on these variables, total expenses incurred in surrogacy differs greatly. It is always best to consult a surrogacy expert to get a better understanding about different factors that can impact the surrogacy costs.
Due to the variability in Surrogate compensation and other state-specific factors, surrogacy in the US can cost anywhere between $120,000 to $160,000.
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.
Having a Surrogate mother can be a viable option in cases such as:
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.
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.

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.
