Costs

Down the road, you probably won't think about the expenses incurred while going through egg donation or gestational surrogacy to build your family. However, at the beginning, it is common for the cost of treatment to be a barrier at worst or a stress at best. Forward Fertility will always be straight forward regarding costs and an effort is always made to keep them as low as possible, so more people have access to care. The agency fees are listed below and a detailed outline of total estimated costs is available on request. Forward Fertility will not charge a second fee to rematch you, if the first match is not successful. There is no application fee to be considered as a potential client.

You do not pay Forward Fertility until the carrier you are going to match with has: completed a psychological evaluation, your IVF clinic has reviewed her prenatal/delivery/postpartum records, AND you've had an in person meeting with the carrier and her partner (if applicable), facilitated by Christie Olsen, NP at the Forward Fertility office.

COSTS FOR GESTATIONAL SURROGACY

Fees

The agency fee for gestational surrogacy is $19,000.

This fee is broken up in three installments, based on milestones we reach.

Installment 1 ($10,000):  Made AFTER you have met the carrier and her partner (if applicable) IN PERSON at a facilitated meeting at the Forward Fertility office.

Installment 2 ($5,000): Made AFTER the carrier has been medically screened by your IVF clinic provider AND you've completed the legal agreement with the carrier. 

Installment 3 ($4,000): Made at 20 weeks gestation.

Should the carrier you match with not work out, the agency fee includes a re-match at no additional agency fee cost.

The TOTAL cost of conceiving via surrogacy can range from $70,000-100,000, depending on your situation.  A cost overview can be emailed to you by requesting one @ info@forwardfertility.com.
