Frequently Asked Questions

Surrogacy is a process where a woman (surrogate) carries and delivers a child for another person or couple (intended parents). The key steps include:

  • Matching: Intended parents and a surrogate agree to a partnership, often facilitated by an agency.
  • Legal Agreements: Contracts are drawn up outlining rights and responsibilities, handled by specialized attorneys.
  • Medical Procedures: In gestational surrogacy, an embryo created via IVF (using the intended parents’ or donors’ egg and sperm) is implanted in the surrogate. In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate’s egg is used.
  • Pregnancy and Birth: The surrogate carries the pregnancy and the intended parents typically are involved throughout.
  • Post-Birth: After birth, the child is legally placed with the intended parents.

Surrogacy laws vary by region, so it’s crucial to consult legal and medical professionals. This process involves significant emotional and ethical considerations for all parties involved.

The cost of surrogacy typically ranges from about $90,000 to over $150,000 in the United States, varying based on factors such as surrogacy type (gestational or traditional), agency fees, surrogate compensation, medical and insurance expenses, legal fees, and other pregnancy-related costs. Gestational surrogacy often costs more due to in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments. It’s crucial for intended parents to thoroughly plan for these expenses.

Becoming a surrogate involves several steps, and the requirements can vary depending on the agency and location. Here’s a general guide:

  • Research: Understand the process, responsibilities, and legal aspects of surrogacy. Research agencies or methods to become a surrogate.
  • Meet the Requirements: Common requirements include age limits (usually 21-40 years), having given birth to at least one healthy child, being in good physical and mental health, and leading a stable lifestyle.
  • Application: Complete an application through a surrogacy agency or a fertility clinic. This typically includes medical history, lifestyle information, and reasons for wanting to be a surrogate.
  • Screening: Undergo thorough medical and psychological screenings to ensure suitability for surrogacy.
  • Legal Representation: Obtain independent legal counsel to understand and negotiate the surrogacy agreement.
  • Matching with Intended Parents: Agencies usually help in matching surrogates with intended parents. This process involves mutual agreement and compatibility.
  • Medical Procedures: If gestational surrogacy is involved, undergo fertility treatments and embryo transfer.
  • Pregnancy and Delivery: Carry and deliver the baby for the intended parents.
  • Post-Delivery: Complete any legal processes to establish the intended parents’ legal rights and conclude the surrogacy arrangement.

It’s crucial for potential surrogates to consider the emotional, physical, and legal implications of surrogacy and to seek support and guidance throughout the process.

A surrogacy agency plays a pivotal role in facilitating the surrogacy process. Its responsibilities include:

  • Screening: Conducts thorough screenings of potential surrogates and intended parents, including medical, psychological, and background checks.
  • Matching: Helps match surrogates with intended parents based on compatibility, preferences, and legal requirements.
  • Coordination of Services: Manages the coordination of medical procedures, legal services, and counseling needs.

The length of the surrogacy process can vary significantly based on various factors, but here’s a general timeline:

  • Initial Steps (Several Weeks to Months):

Research, decision-making, and choosing a surrogacy agency or independent route.

Completing applications, screenings, and approvals for both surrogates and intended parents.

  • Matching Process (1-6 Months):

Finding and matching a surrogate with intended parents. This duration can vary based on specific preferences and compatibility.

  • Legal and Medical Preparations (1-3 Months):

Drafting and signing legal contracts.

Medical screenings, fertility treatments, and preparation for embryo transfer in the case of gestational surrogacy.

  • Embryo Transfer and Conception Attempt (1-2 Months):

The process of embryo transfer in gestational surrogacy. Sometimes multiple attempts are needed for a successful pregnancy.

  • Pregnancy (9 Months):

The duration of a typical pregnancy.

  • Post-Birth Legal Processes (Variable):

Establishing the parental rights of the intended parents, which can vary depending on local laws.

Overall, the entire surrogacy journey typically takes about 15 to 18 months from start to finish, but it can be shorter or longer depending on individual circumstances, legal factors, and the success of medical procedures.

Yes, surrogates are typically compensated for their role in the surrogacy process. The amount of compensation can vary widely based on several factors:

  • Base Compensation: Surrogates usually receive a base compensation, which can vary depending on their location, experience, and the agency or arrangement. In the United States, this can range from about $30,000 to $50,000 or more.
  • Additional Expenses: On top of the base compensation, surrogates are often reimbursed for related expenses, such as medical costs, maternity clothing, travel expenses, and potentially lost wages.
  • Type of Surrogacy: Compensation might differ between gestational and traditional surrogacy, with gestational surrogates often receiving higher compensation due to the additional medical procedures involved.
  • Agency vs. Independent Arrangements: Compensation can also vary depending on whether the surrogate works through an agency or enters into an independent arrangement with the intended parents.
  • Experience: Experienced surrogates who have successfully completed previous surrogacies may receive higher compensation.

It’s important to note that surrogacy laws, including aspects related to compensation, vary by country and even by region within countries. Legal advice is typically recommended to ensure that compensation arrangements are fair and legally compliant.

The success rate of surrogacy can vary based on several factors, but it’s generally considered to be quite high, especially when compared to other fertility treatments. Key factors influencing success rates include:

  • Quality of the Embryo: Success rates are higher with high-quality embryos. Factors like age and health of the egg and sperm donors play a significant role.
  • Surrogate’s Health: A surrogate’s reproductive history and overall health are crucial. A healthy surrogate with a proven track record of successful pregnancies usually increases the likelihood of success.
  • Fertility Clinic and Medical Technology: The expertise of the fertility clinic and the technology used for in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer can significantly impact success rates.
  • Age Factor: The age of the egg donor (in gestational surrogacy) is a critical factor. Younger eggs generally lead to higher success rates.

Typical success rates for surrogacy ranged from 60% to 75% per embryo transfer, with some clinics reporting even higher rates. However, it’s important to note that it may take more than one attempt for a successful pregnancy, and success rates can vary widely from one clinic to another. Intended parents should consult with fertility specialists to get a clearer picture based on their specific circumstances.

During the surrogacy process, surrogates receive various types of support to ensure their physical, emotional, and legal well-being:

Medical Support:

  • Comprehensive medical care throughout the pregnancy, including regular check-ups, prenatal care, and delivery.
  • Access to specialists if any complications arise.

Emotional and Psychological Support:

  • Counseling services to help manage the emotional aspects of surrogacy.
  • Support groups or networks of other surrogates for shared experiences and advice.

  • Legal assistance in case of any disputes or complications.

Agency Support (if applicable):

  • Ongoing guidance and assistance from the surrogacy agency, including coordination of appointments and facilitation of communication with the intended parents.
  • Mediation in case of any misunderstandings or disagreements.

Social Support:

  • Encouragement to maintain a healthy support network with family and friends.
  • Activities or gatherings organized by the agency or support groups.

Post-Delivery Support:

  • Postpartum care, including medical and emotional support.
  • Assistance with any legal procedures required after the birth.

The nature and extent of support can vary depending on the agency or arrangement, but the goal is always to provide a comprehensive support system to address all aspects of the surrogate’s journey.
