A gestational surrogate is a woman who becomes pregnant using an embryo created by the process of in vitro fertilization (IVF). In this case, it is possible to achieve pregnancy using the mother’s eggs and the father’s sperm. Yet, one can also use donor eggs or donor sperm. The fertility specialist implants one or more of these embryos the Surrogate. The surrogate will carry the child or children to term. There will be no genetic relation between the child and Surrogate mother.
There are several reasons why a woman would choose to become a Surrogate mother for someone else. Some Surrogates have seen a friend or family member experience issues with infertility. Thus, they are eager to help a couple or individuals become parents. Others may feel that their family is complete but love being pregnant. They may feel that helping prospective parents is their greater calling.
Yes. Once you get a match with a Surrogate, we will draft an agreement. We will negotiate it on your behalf with your Surrogate’s independent attorney. These contracts cover everything from the medical procedure to your Surrogate’s reimbursement costs during the whole Surrogacy process. It will also clearly mention the amount of contact you would like to have with the Surrogate during the process. There are two separate attorneys in the process. One will represent you, the Intended Parents while the other represents the Surrogate. This avoids any conflict of interest.
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.
If you do not live in the United States, you will need to travel to the U.S. at least 2 times. The initial trip will include an introductory meeting with the Surrogate. On the same visit, we conduct your medical screening and the creation of the embryos at the IVF clinic. The following will be for the actual delivery of your child.
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.”
