We have tied-up with the leading IVF clinic in India that provide couples with the option of starting a family through ART and Surrogacy. We specialize in providing support right from the time one decides that surrogacy might be an option for them up until the time the much desired baby leaves the country.
- We have been in operation for more than 7 years and have helped more than 500+ couples achieve their dream of becoming parents! We have worked with couples from Australia, South Korea, US, Israel, UK, Spain, Canada & NZ.
- The founders of this company are former IP’s themselves and thus genuinely understand the financial and emotional stress, besides the legal and ethical complexities involved in perusing surrogacy.
- Our experienced India based staff will coordinate and ensure that during the entire process you are kept well informed and ensure smooth communication between the parents, surrogate and the clinic.
- Costs are one thing that we are very conscious of and we have done everything possible to keep them within reasonable limits without compromising on Surrogate’s care. We here at ‘Become Parents’ we will never charge you exorbitantly as some other agencies. All the costs are explained to you up-front in our easy to read contract.
When we started looking for Surrogacy agencies around the world, a US based agency quoted US$15,000 as their retainer fee!!! Most of this money was going to the lawyers and 55% of it towards the administrative costs.
This is the reason we have decided to keep our costs to an absolute minimum,and that is our promise to you! You will be amazed at the low all inclusive fees we charge for our services.
