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.

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 a 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.

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.

What does the surrogacy process entail?

The surrogacy timeline can be broken down into six stages: Consultation, Matching, Screening, Legal, Conception, and Pregnancy/Delivery.

*Consultation: The entire process begins with a complimentary consultation with our experienced team. 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 have. 

*Matching:  Our average matching timeline is one week. We attribute this successful and dynamic matching time lime to our comprehensive 3-4-month medical pre-screening of our Surrogates done through OB supervision. Before you are presented with a potential Surrogate candidate, she has already gone through a thorough background check, all of her medical history has been screened by our physician team, and 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 through the IVF clinic chosen by the Intended Parents. Once the Surrogate has been cleared, we then move into the legal phase.

*Legal: Since all our pricing across the board is a flat rate, the surrogate’s compensation as well as legal insurance and the agency fee, have already been predetermined. 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. 

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

*Conception:  Your Surrogate can begin her IVF treatment once medical clearance and legal clearance are completed.

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