A trust account is held by an attorney to pay all the legal, medical, and other expenses that arise from the surrogacy agreement. This eliminates the need for the Intended Parent/s and Gestational Carrier to discuss finances, and allows everyone to enjoy the entire experience. The surrogate mother is never left with any unpaid bills related to her pregnancy and expenses.
Anticipated expenses for the Gestational Carrier program are approximately $70,000. This includes: application, coordination fee, Gestational Carrier screening and support, medical history, Psychological Testing and Evaluation for Gestational Carrier and husband or significant other and counseling. Intended Parent/s initial evaluation and counseling, and Psychological Testing and Evaluation. Legal fees for Gestational Carrier, life insurance, maternity clothes, and the Gestational Carrier allowance to accomplish pregnancy, embryo transfer and monthly allowance during the pregnancy.
Health insurance expenses are NOT included in the estimate. If the Gestational Carrier needs health insurance S.E.E.D.S. will assist to secure it.
Please note that some of these costs will be higher if a multiple pregnancy results. The anticipated total is approximate and may vary due to each case's specific circumstances.
Medical expenses and reproductive medicine costs are NOT included.
