The risk of complications exists, and it should be treated calmly. The SurMom family will make every effort to achieve your cherished goal. We believe in success, and so far, our faith is justified by results!
How to Calculate the Cost of Surrogacy
Since surrogacy requires considerable financial resources, it is important for program participants to understand exactly where the money is going and how these costs are justified. Let’s examine the costs of surrogacy with the SurMom family.
Surrogate Mother’s Fee
This is the main expenditure during the program. Undergoing IVF procedures and then nine months of gestation requires considerable physical and emotional commitment from the donor. Biological parents need to understand that the future child’s health largely depends on the honesty and responsibility of the surrogate mother.
According to generally accepted international standards, surrogate mothers are entitled to monthly compensation for the purchase of food, special clothes for pregnant women, vitamins, and sometimes medicines prescribed by doctors. Also, the surrogate mother’s expenses for a trip to the clinic, supervision by a gynecologist, and childbirth are reimbursed. The total amount of the fee may vary with multiple pregnancies. A separate plan for the payment of a surrogate mother’s services is provided in case an abortion in the first trimester of pregnancy is needed.
The success of the surrogacy program is largely related to the quality of medical services. The SurMom family does not consider it possible or reasonable to save money on the medical component of its program. To achieve the most effective and successful procedures, the best Israeli reproductive specialists, embryologists, obstetricians, and neonatologists are involved.
These specialists ensure quality control in the diagnostic process, ovum donation, IVF, pregnancy monitoring, and childbirth in clinics abroad. Services of reputable specialists in the field of reproductology are not inexpensive, but they are necessary. They help minimize risks and achieve the desired goals faster.
While top medical specialists contribute to the birth of a physically and mentally healthy child, lawyers provide the biological parents with legal rights to their baby. In each country, legislation on surrogacy has its own characteristics. Without special education and knowledge of the language, it is difficult for a foriegn citizen to understand these nuances.
The payment for legal support ensures an accurate contract with the surrogate mother. After childbirth, legal services include the birth certificate of the baby, where the biological parents are recorded. Lawyers help to prevent controversial situations with the surrogate mother. For example, a good lawyer helps avoid the sudden rise of fees during pregnancy or the unexpected desire of the donor to keep the unborn child.
Additional costs are incurred through logistics. This comprises the travel fees of biological parents abroad, including airplane tickets, hotel rooms and transportation costs. This also includes professional support by psychologists during the program. In some cases, the ability to relieve tension and stress through conversations with a specialist plays a great role in successful outcomes.
