We will determine what level compensation you qualify for based on experience and other factors. We know that timely payments are essential for you, your family, and for the healthy development of the growing baby, so payments are directly deposited in accordance to your legal contract.
Absolutely. Our Surrogates are allowed to work with their regular OB after they have been released from their fertility center’s care. However, we are flexible and some Intended Parents may request an alternate OB based on location, hospital facility’s quality of care, or for legal purposes having to do with establishing parental rights. Our services are tailored to your individual needs.
Yes. Your Fallopian Tubes are not needed. With In Vitro Fertilization, the fertilized embryo(s) is transferred directly into your uterus.
Gestational Surrogacy is the most common and is where a couple (the Intended Parents) use their own eggs and sperm to create embryos through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Donor eggs or sperm may also be used. One or more of the embryos is then transferred into the Gestational Surrogate (also referred to as the Gestational Carrier) who then carries the child or children to full term. The surrogate will have no genetic relationship to the baby. This is the surrogacy that New Beginnings provides.
Traditional Surrogacy performed through artificial insemination, utilizing the surrogate’s own eggs, thus giving the surrogate a genetic connection to the child or children they are carrying for the Intended Parents.
New Beginnings does not perform Traditional Surrogacy.
You will deliver the baby in your home state and the hospital of your choice.
There are many factors affect the overall time of the process. Typically matching takes 1-3 months. New Beginnings frequently matches surrogates with Intended Parents within 10-15 days after medical record approval. Medical screening, including a psychological evaluation and legal consultations takes less than a month. The embryo transfer cycle is usually done within 1-2 months after the contract has been finalized. Finally, there are the long awaited 9 months of pregnancy.
All expenses are paid by the Intended Parents. The Intended Parents will be responsible for all costs and expenses associated with your surrogate pregnancy. Please take a look at our Surrogate Compensation page for a list of compensation that you may receive.
