The Surrogacy Process at Chicago IVF

Posted on May 18th, 2017

One of the ways couples can start their own family when there are reproductive issues is through surrogacy. Understandably, this is not an easy decision to make, and it can be quite emotionally challenging as well as one that can be costly. The Chicago IVG Gestational Carrier Program was designed to ensure you, the Intended Parents, are provided with as much information as possible so you can make the best decision on how to proceed in your goal of starting a family. Start your process at an advanced fertility center of Chicago known for achieving results and providing all-inclusive services to its clients.

Our Process

Our Gestational Carrier Program starts with program identification. We want you to explore all of your available reproductive options, like in vitro fertilization and others, and research various gestational carrier and surrogacy programs out there to make sure you find the best one for your needs. From there, we will provide you with detailed resources regarding potential financial obligations so you understand exactly how much the entire process can cost. Our goal was to design the program with all possible costs so there are no surprises in the end.

In addition to that, we will provide you with information about locating the right surrogate. There are a few options you can go with, including word-of-mouth or family members, egg donors and gestational surrogates in our database, or through the help of agencies that specialize in the recruitment of egg donors and gestational carriers. There is no best option here, but we can offer as much information as possible to help in your decision-making.

Finally, we will provide you with services and information on the matching process, legal issues, and insurance coverage. You may need professional assistance for various things, including interpersonal considerations, legal happenings, insurance questions, and more. We will work with you to make the complex process of surrogacy as clear and simple as possible.
