Our New York City Surrogacy Program

Our surrogacy program in New York City offers many specific advantages for both intended parents and surrogates. We want each and every person who contacts us to feel welcome. Whether you a same-sex couple, single, married, etc., we tailor your family building goals and surrogacy journey to be as special and unique as you are. We truly strive for the highest level of attentive care.

New York City Surrogacy Laws

New York is not known as a surrogacy-friendly state. They do not recognize surrogacy contracts and surrogacy law in New York is overall not very supportive. They typically do not grant pre-birth orders, and any form of compensated surrogacy arrangements or any surrogacy arrangement is not encouraged or supported. However, we can advise you on this as there are options. Please contact us so we can walk through this together.

While New York does not currently have favorable laws for compensated surrogacy, Conceiveabilities has been helping New York intended parents build their family through surrogacy for years with a customized legal approach that allows them to proceed safely through the surrogacy journey. It's only a matter of time before the pending legislation to make New York surrogacy friendly for compensated arrangements is passed!

Surrogacy Costs

Surrogacy costs and health insurance are on the top of the list of concerns when we first meet with intended parents. Questions like, “Do insurance plans cover infertility?” or “What financing options are available?” are very common and we’re here to help guide you through this process.

ConceiveAbilities makes every effort to address these concerns. We secure your finances by holding your funds in a separate insured escrow account. The escrow account protects your funds and is used to pay all your surrogate’s expenses, including agency fees. The account is in your name and you can view it online any time, just like your other bank accounts. This information will be presented along with your surrogate’s profile. Ultimately, your surrogacy contract will itemize and include all anticipated financial responsibilities.

Please remember however that there are many variables to every pregnancy, including where your surrogate is located, if you use donor eggs, and/or if the pregnancy includes multiples. There can be unexpected surrogacy costs along the way and you should factor that into your budget. The total cost of an average surrogacy journey: $131,500.

The Process of Surrogacy

The surrogacy process can be complicated. Our years of experience makes each step, from finding a surrogate, to working with fertility clinics, to the legal processes, to assisting with the surrogacy contract and all that is required in between as seamless as possible. The surrogacy process can take time but will be here every step of the way to navigate the complexities.

An average surrogacy journey with ConceiveAbilities is 15 months. We begin with a ConceiveAbilities consultation where you’ll learn about the steps of surrogacy and our proprietary Matching Matters® process. Our process allows us to clearly define what type of surrogacy arrangement best suits you, from communication style, to lifestyle choices. We then get to work on matching you with your ideal surrogate. Once you are matched, you meet your dedicated match manager, who becomes your point person for the remainder of your journey with us. This person guides you through your surrogates medical workup, the legal phase, embryo transfer, and ultimately, throughout pregnancy and delivery. They communicate seamlessly with you, your surrogate and the clinic, are there for support and questions and coordinate all of the details, both big and small, to offer peace of mind during this entire process.
