FAQ’s for Intended Parents pursuing Surrogacy
*How much does a surrogate cost?
The average cost of gestational surrogacy ranges between $150,000 and $300,000 and is impacted by four main factors: number of attempts to achieve pregnancy, surrogate compensation and expenses, singleton or twin pregnancy, and optional or additional services. If you would like to review a detailed estimated fee schedule with all associated cost, please contact us for assistance.
*Is there a wait to be matched with a surrogate?
Yes, you will need to wait to be matched with a surrogate, and that wait time is influenced by two main factors: demand for surrogacy and your personal preferences for the surrogate.
*How are surrogates screened?
*How long is the surrogacy process?
The surrogacy process can take anywhere from one and a half to two years for most intended parents. The surrogacy timeline can be broken down into five stages: search, screening, legal, conception, and, finally, pregnancy/delivery.
FAQ’s for Intended Parents pursuing Egg Donation
*How much will it cost to work with an egg donor?
The cost to cycle an egg donor depends on several factors including whether you select a first time or experienced egg donor, where the donor resides in relation to your IVF clinic, agency fees, medical screening and cycle fees, and the donor’s compensation. If you would like to review a detailed estimated fee schedule with all associated cost, please contact us for assistance.
*Is the egg donor’s compensation negotiable?
No, the compensation offered to the egg donors in our program is non-negotiable. First time donors in our program receive $10,000 in compensation, returning donors receive a minimum of $12,000. Some donors may be eligible for higher compensation ranging from $15,000 and more.
*What is outside monitoring?
When a donor does not live in the area where your IVF doctor is located, she will need outside monitoring. This usually consists of ultrasounds and lab work the donor can have done near her home.
*Is the donor open to meeting the intended parent?
If you are interested in meeting one of our egg donors, please contact our team. We will ask the donor if they are open to meeting you. If you and the donor decide to meet on video, that meeting will be facilitated by a member of PMI staff.
*Are your donors willing to travel?
Yes, most of our egg donors are willing to travel.
