Price

Determination of the cost of the surrogate motherhood program is a difficult task, because each case is deeply individual, and the cost of the program depends on the set of services that will be required for successful implementation of the program. A typical procedure for childbirth by the surrogate motherhood program in our company will cost from 54,000 USD to 65,000 USD depending on the situation. This amount includes payment for all of our services within the standard program of surrogate motherhood, all payments to a surrogate mother in case of normal course of pregnancy and childbirth, expenses of IVF clinic per 1 transfer, cost of medical care to expectant mothers and delivery care in uncomplicated pregnancy and delivery.

However it is necessary to take into account the possibility of the factors that may significantly increase the total cost: the may include expenses for a multiple pregnancy (twins or triplets), cost of medical services depending on the selected health facilities, complications during pregnancy or during labor, need for donor egg cell or several cycles of IVF and etc.

Often we are facing situations when such uncertainty scares customers who would like to understand their overall expenses for the program even before starting the surrogacy program. Taking into account this concern and trying to meet their wishes, we have developed a number of surrogacy programs with a fixed-price contract. This allows to minimize the financial risks of the client - after paying the contract, the customer is no longer worried about the unexpected expenses that may occur (and most often occur) while conducting the program - we take these unexpected expenses and, accordingly, the financial risks. All contracts of this type include a set of services necessary for the child's birth. At present, most of our customers choose exactly those contracts. More information on the contracts with a fixed price of the surrogate motherhood program can be obtained at our agency.
