What does the surrogacy process entail?
Generally, you can break down the surrogacy timeline 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 at all. 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. We attribute this successful and dynamic matching timeline to our comprehensive 3-4-month medical pre-screening. It is our in-house OB supervises who perform the pre-screening process of our Surrogates. Before we present a potential Surrogate candidate to you, she has already gone through a thorough background check. Moreover, our physician team has already screened all of her medical histories. Lastly, she has undergone proper and necessary lab work which then qualifies her to become an eligible candidate through our agency.
*Screening: Once we have a confirmed two-way match (Intended Parents & Surrogate) the Surrogate will then go through the final stages of medical screening 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 then move into the legal phase.
*Legal: All our pricing across the board is flat rate. This includes the Surrogate mothers’ compensation cost as well as legal insurance and the agency fee. All of these surrogacy related procedures come with an already predetermined cost. This makes the contract portion of this process very streamlined. You will have unlimited access to your attorney and your Surrogate’s attorney during the contractual phase as well as the entire journey.
*Conception: Your Surrogate can begin her IVF treatment after completing medical clearance and legal clearance.
*Pregnancy/Delivery: Throughout the pregnancy phase of the journey, you will have weekly detailed updates. Your case manager will be outlining any and all new information regarding your Surrogate and child.”
