Things Intended Fathers Should Know about Surrogacy

When it comes to surrogacy, you will often hear everyone involved in the process discussing important things the surrogate and intended mother need to know, but rarely are intended fathers afforded the same recognition. Today, intended fathers will often be very interested in knowing what they should expect, but they are sometimes given very little attention. 

With that in mind, we hope to provide intended fathers all over the country with the information they need to know surrounding their surrogacy arrangement. There are countless things you will need to know as an intended father, but if you are interested in learning more about how you can be genetically related to your baby and how much the entire surrogacy process is going to cost, read on. 

You Could Be Biologically Related to Your Baby-to-Be

There are many different reasons why individuals and families choose surrogacy, but many parents-to-be are under the impression that choosing surrogacy means you won’t be biologically related to your baby. 

While this can be true, particularly for those who have struggled with infertility, if an intended father has viable, high-quality sperm, he can often be genetically related to his baby in both traditional and gestational surrogacy plans. 

Intended Parents Have Certain Financial Responsibilities

It is also quite common for intended fathers to be concerned with the costs associated with a surrogacy arrangement. 

There are many different financial responsibilities you can expect to take on when you choose surrogacy, including the costs of prenatal care, labor, and delivery for your surrogate mother; her base compensation rate, if applicable; any travel costs; the costs of helping the surrogate mother to become pregnant; and more. 

You can learn more about the expected costs you should prepare for when you come in for your initial meeting with a member of our team at Baby Steps Surrogacy Center, Inc.
