So You Are Considering Surrogacy

Victoria Ferrara


It can be one of the most overwhelming moments of your life to even begin considering having a child through surrogacy. There are a myriad of emotions, practical concerns, and questions that are daunting and nerve-racking. Because of this, it is important to break down the issues and speak to medical and legal professionals to inform yourself on each issue. Competent professionals will be able to help you organize and synthesize all of the information you will receive on issues involving finances, medical decisions, and legal assistance.

  • Finances. This is one of the first factors you should consider. To properly accomplish having a child through surrogacy in the United States, you must be prepared for costs and expenses that range from approximately $75,0000 to $150,000. The determining factors include whether you are using an egg donor or have embryos already, insurance costs, and surrogate compensation.
  • Medical issues. All medical matters must be placed in the hands of a competent fertility physician, IVF clinic, and staff. You will obtain information and make decisions regarding the creation of your embryos, egg donation, and medical calendars. 
  • Legal assistance. As far as the legal issues go, your lawyer must be a specialist in assisted reproduction technology law. This is who will help you with the very important gestational surrogacy contract. The contract will cover the surrogate's obligations to take medication, follow all legal and medical instructions, maintain a safe and sound pregnancy, authorize you to know and participate in all medical treatment for the pregnancy and birth, and respect you and acknowledge you as the parent(s). 

If you have a competent team managing and supervising the surrogate arrangement, and your surrogate has been properly screened, you can be assured that you will have a good relationship with your surrogate, one of mutual respect and caring, with everyone involved helping to bring a beautiful and healthy baby into your arms.
