~Installment #1 - Earned upon retaining the support and services of Supportive Conceptions and their surrogate database.
The retainer fee is paid to utilize our initial services relating to your surrogate journey. This will cover advertising, interviewing, approving, and screening your surrogate mother. Completion of a background check for the surrogate and her husband, if applicable, as well as the in-home visit and interview is included in this initial fee. The retainer fee also covers the costs of background checks for IP's, and home visits as applicable.
~Installment #2 - Earned upon matching with your surrogate.
A match is considered official and payment is due after all parties have spoken and express a desire to move forward together, and your potential surrogate’s medical records have been approved by your IVF clinic.
~Installment #3 - Earned once your surrogate has passed her medical and psychological screenings.
~Installment #4 - Earned once the contract with your surrogate has been signed.
The matching fee is reduced if intended parents independently select a surrogate, but desire to have Supportive Conceptions provide administrative, contractual and all additional support services.
