ConceiveAbilities has over two decades of experience in bringing together deserving intended parents with compassionate surrogate mothers. If you are interested in family building through surrogacy, we invite you to meet our team of professionals in New York City, Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, Yonkers, New Rochelle, Westchester County, and surrounding areas. We offer an unparalleled level of attention and care to surrogate mothers and intended parents throughout their entire surrogacy journey.
At this time, surrogacy agreements are not legal in New York State – although many organizations are currently advocating for this to change. In order for intended parents who live in New York to use surrogacy to build their families, they will need to work with a surrogate mother who lives in a state where surrogacy is allowed (such as Connecticut or Pennsylvania).
Two-state surrogacy arrangements require special coordination of the surrogacy process, as the surrogate mother is required to live in a different state than the intended parents. ConceiveAbilities makes this process easier by coordinating and managing surrogacy contracts with intended parents and their surrogate carrier. We also work with future parents and their chosen surrogate to create an overall experience that meets the goals and expectations of each party, including arrangements for communication, travel, and more.
The total cost of a surrogacy agreement is dependent on surrogate reimbursement (medical co-pays, medications, maternity clothing, travel expenses, etc.), agency fees, and legal fees. We encourage those interested in surrogacy to learn more about agency and surrogacy fees during their decision-making process.
Whether you are an intended parent or a surrogate applicant, the process for getting started is easy, secure & confidential. Go ahead and take the first step with ConceiveAbilities.
While it’s an exciting and often very successful means to modern family building, surrogacy is not without many questions from both the intended parents and the surrogate herself. Once the idea of cost has been absorbed by intended parents, they soon realize they must also ask another pressing question – is surrogacy legal in all 50 states? More specifically, is surrogacy legal in my state?
Gestational surrogacy is a wonderful opportunity for parents who are unable to have children of their own. It involves the generously donated services of a surrogate mother, who undertakes the physical risks and personal inconvenience of bearing a child to term. This child is grown from an embryo created with donated genetic material, often from the intended parents themselves. The surrogate is not genetically related to the child she bears – a factor which is directly implicit in the practice of
