What are the advantages of surrogacy vs donor child?

Surrogacy vs donor: Surrogacy means that you and your partner provide the egg and the sperm, but someone else becomes pregnant and delivers. You have to have the legal papers in order because you have to adopt.

In the later you are preg. ...Read more

What are the advantages/disadvantages to surrogacy or egg donation?

Numerous for both: Egg donors and surrogates used for different reasons. Egg donors for women w/poor eggs: advantage is success, disadvantage is someone else's eggs (and costs). Surrogate used when woman cannot be pregnant herself. Advantage: baby vs no baby; disadvantage: other woman involved and costs. Both topics too broad to answer well here. Great options when used appropriately. Costs are relative but high. ...Read more

Surrogacy medical fees and legal fees are how much?

Broad range: Surrogacy is expensive and ranges from $40k - $100k or more. Price shopping is worthwhile but hard to pinpoint because surrogates all have custom made contracts with intended parents. I believe the key to success is the legal contract, so make sure of attny who helps. Get everything spelled out and make sure it is complete. Laws vary between states - use state where baby will be born. Best wishes. ...Read more

I had protected sex with my husband on 3/7/19 and had a FET transfer for surrogacy on 3/11/19. Is there a chance baby could be ours even on meds?

I had protected sex with my husband on 3/7/19 and had a FET transfer for surrogacy on 3/11/19. Is there a chance baby could be ours even on meds?

Embryo transfer ?'s: Embryo transfer for surrogacy , if the embryo implants in the surrogate womb will be of the parentage of the sperm and egg, regardless of the surrogate. The chance of pregnancy even with "protection" always "could" result in pregnancy, so if parentage is questionable, genetic studies can prove the true parentage of the fetus/infant. ...Read more

Surrogacy vs carry yourself after egg donation. Which makes more sense for older single woman?

Yourself: You should carry yourself unless you cannot. Surrogacy is used when the woman cannot carry a baby as pregnancy itself is risky. We are protective of surrogates and while pregnancy is risky, it is alright for you to take the risk for your own baby. Surrogacy is also expensive with low prices of about $40k just for the surrogacy. Brief answer but hopefully you understand the point. Best wishes. ...Read more

Loads: Surrogacy is a choice that is well thought out and coordinated. It involves trust, commitment, and usually compensation that is mutually agreed upon.

Surrogacy. Rich couple looking for surrogate in poor rural places. Does anyone have an opinion on it?

Poor idea: Surrogacy is used just for women who cannot carry their own baby. Surrogacy is not for rich women's convenience. Surrogacy is costly, so wealth helps to afford a surrogate. I have met many surrogates and they are women who genuinely want to help and they go through extensive screening, medical and psychological. Surrogates make a big commitment, so poor women may not be a good choice. Complicated. ...Read more
