Surrogacy in the USA

Surrogacy laws in the United States of America vary widely from state to state.

It’s important to consider this before pursuing surrogacy in the USA. Connecticut, California, Delaware, Maine, Nevada, New Hampshire and the capital, Washington D.C all have favorable legislation and do not restrict or limit surrogacy to traditional family models.

This means that these states are a popular destination for parents such as single parents, unmarried couples, same-sex couples and couples using a double donor, who are restricted by the legislation in Ukraine or other surrogacy-friendly countries.

The program offers a unique approach to surrogacy in the USA, offering IPs the possibility to use their already formed embryos of there own, carry out a new IVF cycle with there own materials, or use either egg, sperm or double donors to form their future family.

Surrogacy USA is a great opportunity but a quite expensive one. Examples of some of the costs are high compensation for the surrogate, travels and stays in the USA, insurance and uncovered and unexpected fees. Before starting the process you need to consider strongly all these factors.

If you are limited in your finances and are not ready to pay more then 100 000$ for the surrogacy journey, a program in the Czech Republic or a surrogacy program in Mexico might be the best alternative instead of surrogacy in the USA.

Surrogacy USA: Contract

Sign the contract with the surrogate

Once the surrogate has been selected, you will need to sign a contract with her to formalize the process.
There is no need to travel to the US at this stage – the contract can be signed in front of a notary public in the U.S embassy of your own country. However, you are welcome to travel to the US to meet your surrogate in person, if you wish.

Biomaterial

In order to participate in any surrogacy arrangement using your own bio-material, you will need to undergo preliminary testing. This can be done in your own country. If you need to deposit material or carry out an IVF process, this will be done at our facilities in Mexico or in the USA. If you opt for the donor program, you will need to choose your donor at this stage.
