The prevailing agency fee for one gestational surrogate is $50,000 payable in 4 installments: deposit, match, medical clearance and legal clearance. Our agency fee includes the matching process, liaison services with your chosen attorney, IVF center and other professionals, surrogate appreciation and support services for a year that include monthly meeting with a mental health professional once legal contract is signed, milestone gifts, unique gifts for most holidays, monthly massage in last trimester, and 3 months of nutritional counseling for surrogate, and prescreening services. Prescreening services include psychological clearance of surrogate and spouse/partner, DMV and background check of surrogate and spouse/partner, and surrogate's pregnancy and delivery records review by a maternal fetal medical professional before a match is finalized. Costs associated with prescreening are included in the agency fee. Once you are matched, your surrogate will be ready for medical screening right away!
We require a $10,000 deposit to be on our wait list. The fee sets the agency fee for one year and is 100% refundable if we do not match you with an ASRM guideline qualified first-time surrogate within the year. (Our current wait time is 6-8 months) The full deposit is applied towards the agency fee once you are matched. You do not pay any additional fees until you are matched with a candidate, meet that surrogate by phone, video chat, or in-person, and everyone decides to work together.
