Details

What is Gestational Surrogacy?

This is a kind of surrogacy in which the gestational carrier (also known as the surrogate) is not genetically linked to the child she’s carrying in her womb. The embryo used is created using the eggs and sperm of the intended parents or donors.
The physician then cultures this embryo in the lab and transfers it into the surrogate mother, who will carry the pregnancy to term. Once the baby is born, the surrogate will relinquish him or her to the intended parents, who will take over the parenting responsibilities.

ADVANTAGE

Why Consider Gestational Surrogacy

For intended parents, the main benefit is that it results in the birth of the baby they so much desired. But the advantages go beyond that. Gestational surrogacy also helps:

Women who are unable to carry a pregnancy due to uterine abnormality, repeated IVF failures, delayed parenthood etc.

Intended parents who want to avoid transferring a genetic disease to their offspring

Heterosexual couples who are finding it difficult to become pregnant

LGBTQ+ people who want to have a genetically related baby

Legal

Is Gestational Surrogacy Legal in Colorado?

photo-1562564055-71e051d33c19
Yes. Currently, there is no statute prohibiting surrogacy in Colorado, which means that the practice is allowed there. Besides, the state courts often favor intended parents looking to build their families through gestational surrogacy in Colorado.

It is very easy to establish the parentage of a baby born through surrogacy in Colorado. Intended parents can obtain both pre-birth and post-birth orders declaring them the legal parents of the child. 

In most cases, the surrogate mother does not even need to appear in court. She only needs to sign an acknowledgment of parentage to transfer the parental rights to the intended parents.
The legal team at Physician’s Surrogacy is well versed in reproductive and surrogacy laws and will make sure you understand the legal framework governing surrogacy contracts right from the start.

Cost

Surrogacy Cost in Colorado

Since each surrogacy journey is different and surrogacy costs vary based on many factors, it is best to schedule a consultation with Physician’s Surrogacy to get all the details before getting started.

Right Surrogate

Finding a Surrogate Mother

One of the most critical steps in the surrogacy process is finding your ideal surrogate match. Whether you are looking for a surrogate on your own (independent surrogacy) or with the help of an agency, it is important to take time to determine what you want in a surrogate. Knowing what you are looking for in a gestational carrier will help your surrogacy agency to find the best match for you.

Below are some criteria to consider when looking for a surrogate mother in Colorado:
01

Is she a good legal fit?

Each state in the US has its own laws concerning surrogacy, and surrogacy requirements and regulations vary from one country to another. Hence, our legal team makes sure the surrogacy laws in the surrogate mother’s home state are in line with those of the intended parent’s home country/state.

02

Do the surrogate’s personality and expectations match with yours?

Intended parents and surrogates will have phone calls or physical meetings with the Physician’s Surrogacy team to determine their personality regarding surrogacy. We also consider both parties’ expectations and hopes for the surrogacy journey, including the number of embryos to transfer and the kind of communication they prefer.

03

Do you have the same views on pregnancy termination and selective reduction?

It is important that both parties have the same opinion regarding pregnancy termination and selective reduction. At Physician’s Surrogacy, we make sure to match intended parents with a surrogate that has the same views as them in case there’s a need to selectively reduce or terminate the surrogacy pregnancy.

Why Us

Benefits of Pursuing Surrogacy in Colorado With Us

Accelerated Timeline

With the largest surrogacy program in the US, our hopeful parents don’t have to wait a long time before beginning their journey. Our comprehensive service model also enables us to lower the average time of a surrogacy journey by 200% or even more.

Strict Surrogate Screening and Selection

Our selection standards are way stricter than the standards put out by the FDA. Before intended parents pay for the surrogate’s medical screening and travel expenses, potential surrogates are required to undergo preliminary diagnostic screening to make sure they are physically ready and committed to the process.

This often includes basic medical screening, a background check, psychological evaluation, and a medical records review by a qualified OB physician.

Physician Monitored Pregnancy

One of our doctors will monitor the surrogate mother and baby through reports and interaction with their obstetrician and IVF expert. We will then send comprehensive reports to the intended parents, who can talk to our in-house doctor directly if they have any concerns.

Clear Legal Guidelines

Both the surrogates and intended parents will have a lawyer who will represent them during contract negotiation to prevent conflicts of interest. Besides, the surrogacy contract will contain clear terms and guidelines for both the intended parents and surrogate mother.

Our independent legal counsel will also help establish the baby’s parentage and have your name included in the birth certificate.

Dedicated Personal Support

Since each party’s needs may be different, we provide intended parents and surrogates with 4 distinct support teams, who will work together to ensure a favorable outcome for everyone involved. Intended Parents and Surrogates will both have dedicated case managers to personally support them through every step of the way.

FINANCES

Financing Surrogacy Journey

Using personal savings can be a great option since you’re not adding debt. We recommend setting up a special account for your journey similar to how you would for college, a new home, or a vacation.
Using your 401k can be a quick and easy way to secure funds for your surrogacy journey. If you decide to go this route, make sure to factor in tax consequences and rules when making withdrawals. You can have a look at past jobs and see if there is money in a 401(k) plan that you have not “rolled over.” It is also a good idea to speak with your HR representative before considering this option.
There is an increasing number of employers who cover all or some costs of the surrogacy journey. If your employer doesn’t cover surrogacy, they may have benefits for your surrogate’s IVF. Reach out to your HR representative if your employer is one of them.

There are many organizations that want to help you build your family through surrogacy by helping to finance your journey. These organizations provide non-repayable grants for those who meet their qualifications. Below are some organizations listed, that ease the financial burden:

  • Pay it Forward Fertility Grants
  • Baby Quest Foundation
  • Tinina Q. Cade Foundation Family Building Grant
  • Family Formation Charitable Trust (AARTA)
  • Journey to Parenthood Grant

Some Intended Parents choose to make their surrogacy payments through a credit card. You can request either a personal line of credit from your bank or an increased limit on your credit cards.
This a great option if you have equity in your home or other properties. Your property secures the loan, making the interest rates more reasonable.
Many of your close friends and family would love to see you become a parent. Often parents or grandparents want to help but don’t know the best way to support you. This may be an opportunity to ask for financial support.
