Frequently Asked Questions
Can I find my future Surrogate Mother myself?
You can find an appropriate Surrogate Mother yourself, should it be a relative or an acquaintance. Your future Surrogate Mother should meet medical and age requirements.
What is the maximum age limit for Intended Parents?
Current Russian legalization does not provide any age restrictions for Intended Parents commissioning a surrogacy program.
How long do I have to stay in Russia?
You do not have to stay in Russia for the whole period of surrogacy program. Normally, you can come only twice: before the start of medical stage of the program to pass medicals tests and deliver your biological material, and shortly before the birth to go through legal procedures and fetch your baby home. It is also legal to import frozen embryos to the Russian Federation, conceived in any other country around the world. If you are not interested in egg donation services, you can start hormonal stimulation in your home country and come to our partner fertility clinic only for egg retrieval.
How is the Surrogate Compensation calculated?
The compensation of the Surrogate Mother depends on her age, residence and surrogacy experience. The highest-payed age group is between 20 and 30 years. Moreover, if the Surrogate Mother had a successful surrogacy experience, she is likely to demand a greater compensation.
