What is independent surrogacy?
Gestational surrogacy is a boon for childless families battling infertility and the LGBTQ community where having a biological child is otherwise not possible. However, the towering costs associated with surrogacy are daunting, to say the least. Especially, when hiring the services of a surrogacy consultancy, the agency fee is an additional cost for the logistical support you receive.
No doubt, the role of a surrogacy agency is integral to the surrogacy process in terms of providing a seamless and stress-free experience. However, the hefty price tag that this third party reproduction service comes with gets most people balking.
Independent surrogacy is an alternative pursued by many intended parents. By definition, the independent or private surrogacy journey is one where intended parents enter into a contract with a suitable gestational carrier without the assistance of a surrogacy agency.
Why opt for independent surrogacy?
The primary motive behind seeking independent surrogacy is the obvious lower cost. However, there are multiple other ways intended parents could benefit from the indie surrogacy route:
The total cost for an independent surrogacy journey is typically between $70,000 ~ $80,000, which is significantly lower than working with an agency.
Patriot Conceptions will offer medical and background screening of your surrogate candidate, to make sure they're ASRM guideline complied.
Independent surrogacy gives the intended parents considerable flexibility in terms of handling the process. Instead of being spoon-fed and dictated, independent surrogacy allows the intended parents a reasonable amount of liberty in many aspects of the process.
You also don't need to hire a surrogacy agency if a close friend or relative has volunteered to be your surrogate out of courtesy or goodwill.
More control and responsibility
The increased control and responsibility that private surrogacy offers is preferred by a lot of intended parents and surrogates alike. Since surrogacy is an extremely important and high-impact decision, this aspect of independent surrogacy gives the parties involved more freedom to navigate the journey as per their unique preferences.
