I was wondering if you girls could give me some info on surrogancy. My husband and I are currently trying to adopt and had a failed placement last year that was devastating. I have thought some about looking into surragancy and was wondering how much cost is involved since we already have so much invested in the whole adoption process but getting very frustrated with it. So how does the whole process work as far as getting matched up with a surragate and getting an embroy because in our situation we would have to have embryo's as well. Any info someone could give me would be greatly appreciated.
I am also a parent via surrogacy and can give you a run down on anything you want.
Getting matched can be either through an Agency or seeking someone indy. An agency will cost anywhere from $6,500-$30,000. I can give you the lowdown on lower cost full service quality agency also run by intended parents.
The legal will cost $2500-$4,000 for contracts
For a birth order that places you directly onto the Birth certificate (depending on the state) $0-$4,000
The surrogate costs including compensation AND costs of pregnancy $20,000-$40,000 on average
IVF- Average $20,000 including screening for surrogate and medications.
You mention you need embryos. Does that mean you need to create them with your and your husbands genetic material or do you need donors also?
If you ever need any info, I have been in the surrogacy world for 6 years now. I need to get my butt posting some good information, just have to find some free time! Maybe tomorrow I can sneak on here for a good hour and get some good information up.
