Our Surrogacy Program in Massachusetts

At Fertility Source Companies, we provide intended parents (IPs) and gestational surrogates throughout Massachusetts with outstanding opportunities for a rewarding surrogacy journey. We provide IPs with unlimited access to our user-friendly online database, allowing you to view potential surrogate profiles and form connections with the ideal candidate, quickly and efficiently. We proudly serve Boston, Worcester, Springfield, Nantucket, and beyond.

Finding a Surrogate in Massachusetts

A gestational carrier, also known as a surrogate, is someone who agrees to carry a pregnancy for an individual or couple, the intended parents (IPs). In our history, Fertility Source Companies has worked with more than 4,500 U.S. and international IPs to locate amazing surrogates and grow their families.

Surrogacy Laws in Massachusetts

Massachusetts is a surrogacy-friendly state, with no specific laws or regulations in place. As such, the courts generally have a favorable attitude toward surrogacy arrangements and legal proceedings. As long as surrogacy contracts are created by attorneys with reproductive law experience, they’re considered valid and enforceable. These attorneys establish the rights, responsibilities, compensation, contact expectations, and birth plans between IPs and gestational surrogates.

Surrogate Costs & Fees in Massachusetts

In Massachusetts, the total cost of surrogacy generally ranges from $100,000 to $125,000. This amount includes an initial agency fee of $28,000, paid in installments, and a base surrogacy fee of $50,000. Beyond these payments, the surrogate is reimbursed for living expenses by the IPs. These include a monthly allowance of $350, an embryo transfer fee, a maternity clothing fee, and other miscellaneous expenses. You can find out more details about the breakdown of surrogacy costs and fees.

How Surrogates Are Screened in Massachusetts

At Fertility Source Companies, Massachusetts surrogate candidates must undergo stringent screenings, ensuring prospective surrogates are qualified to complete each of the journey’s steps. To evaluate physical and mental health, multiple screenings are involved. Among these are medical tests, including a sexually transmitted disease (STD) screening, drug and Hepatitis tests, and a pelvic exam. A background check and psychological evaluation, as performed by mental health professionals, are also conducted. Our staff registered nurse (RN) also reviews past pregnancies to determine no complications were present.

Surrogacy FAQs for Intended Parents

What is the purpose of an IP profile, and how does it help potential gestational surrogates?

The IP profile serves as a helpful synopsis of you as a prospective parent. Gestational surrogates can access the IP profile, which includes such information as your family description, the type of parenting style you plan on practicing, an overview of your interests and values, and photos of you and your family members.

Should IPs work with a surrogacy attorney?

Yes. While states like Massachusetts may have a friendly attitude regarding surrogacy, the specific arrangements and legal processes are very complex. Working with an attorney means that you’re provided with expert advice on all of the surrogacy journey’s legal aspects, including accelerating the surrogacy contract to reduce any legal risks.

Will IPs receive any financial assistance from Fertility Source Companies?

Yes. At Fertility Source Companies, we have various financing options available designed to help minimize the financial stress associated with your surrogacy journey.

  • Signing a surrogacy agreement with an attorney
  • Self-injecting yourself with a series of hormonal medications to prepare for pregnancy
  • Undergoing the embryo transfer procedure
  • Submitting to multiple ultrasounds and blood tests to confirm pregnancy

Surrogacy Pay & Compensation in Massachusetts

Please be aware that compensation begins once the fetal heart rate is identified and is disbursed over time in installments.
