We share surrogate profiles with clients as we find them and can sometimes find that "perfect" candidate within just a couple of days! A complete search will take about 1 -2 weeks and we are typically able to present a total of about 3-8 profiles, depending on search criteria. We limit the number of clients we assist at any given time to be sure we are able to give the necessary time and attention to each one of our clients. Contact us to find out our current availability for your surrogate search today!
You give me the surrogate profiles... then what?
Once your ideal candidate is identified, your consultant will collaborate with you and the agency to assist you in setting up a match meeting (dependent on the agency's policies) to make sure everyone feels comfortable moving forward with the match.
Why are your fees less than other search services?
That is easy - Because we want to save you money. Surrogacy already costs a fortune. Finding your surrogate candidate shouldn't have to. We are obsessed with keeping our expenses down to the bare minimum, which allows us to pass the savings along to our clients.
How is Family Match Consulting different from a surrogate agency?
Our goal is to find you the perfect surrogate that is just the right fit for you, not try to match you with a surrogate already in our program. We have access to approximately 75 surrogate agencies and over 500 available surrogates! We cast the largest net possible to find you the very best surrogate.
What is your experience?
Our founder Stephanie Levich founded and ran one of the top egg donor and surrogate agencies in the country. She has helped thousands of people become parents through both egg donation and surrogacy by guiding them through the egg donor and surrogate selection process. As an adult adoptee, and also a mom through IVF, she has a unique blend of both personal and professional experience that she brings to each one of our clients. While we have support staff that helps with various administration functions, Stephanie is the main point of contact for every single client we work with.
What if the surrogate I select does not work out?
Each agency has a different policy. Though rare, some agencies will refund the fees you paid in full. Others will refund a portion, while some do not offer a refund but will try and find you another surrogate within their agency.
If my first surrogate does not work out, will Family Match Consulting assist me with another search?
Certainly! If additional searches are needed, we are happy to conduct them with a 50% discount.
What if I don't select a surrogate you present to me?
Though extremely rare, this is possible as we cannot guarantee that you will ultimately be comfortable with any of the surrogate candidates we present. We are happy to conduct additional searches for 50% off. Will I receive a refund if I do not select one of the surrogates you present or the surrogate I select doesn't work out?
Family Match Consulting passionately devotes our time and resources to each search we conduct for our clients. Therefore, our fees are non-refundable.
What will the total cost be for the surrogacy process?
This varies case by case but our experienced consultants can review all anticipated fees with you so you have a good idea of what to expect. To help give you a general idea, we find that the "all in" amount which includes every single aspect of the surrogacy will typically range from approximately $100,000 - $150,000.
Do you work with international clients?
Absolutely! We have helped countless international clients become parents through surrogacy. We will walk you through the surrogacy process and surrogate selection process, step by step.
Confidentiality is extremely important to me. Is my information private?
Absolutely. Confidentiality is something we take very seriously. We will never share your information until you give us permission to make the introduction to the surrogate agency you ultimately end up working with. For clients who require an extra level of anonymity, our Fertility Vault program was created to accommodate you so that your information does not need to be shared with your surrogacy agency, and you get the extra level of care and discretion that is needed. Contact our office for more information. All inquires are handled with the strictest of confidence.
