Medical advances in assisted reproductive technology are leading to exciting new options for parenthood through egg, sperm, and embryo donation, as well as surrogacy. The choices can be overwhelming, and Robin is especially sensitive to the emotional and financial costs of the process. She can discuss with you in detail the pros and cons of adoption versus donation and surrogacy from a legal and practical standpoint.
Cost is a major factor in gestational surrogacy, which averages between $80,000.00 to $150,000.00. The expenses vary, particularly with regard to the medical costs, including whether donor ova are used, the number of IVF cycles needed for the surrogate to become pregnant, and the amount of medical costs not covered by insurance.
Robin can help you build your family by:
- Finding a surrogate, egg, sperm or embryo donor, surrogacy agency, or fertility clinic
- Assisting in screening potential gestational carriers
- Drafting a gestational carrier or donation agreement
- Obtaining legal parentage for you as the intended parent
