Our Intended Parent Programs & Pricing

An all-inclusive cost with no surprises
At Alcea, our focus is family building first. We do not require any binding exclusivity agreement or non-refundable fee to match. Our agency fee payment schedule is designed to accommodate a feasible budget instead of large lump sums. Alcea is committed to helping you navigate and find assistance with the cost of surrogacy. We offer discounts for frontline workers, medical professionals, teachers, social workers, and cancer survivors. We also know that unforeseen financial circumstances can happen for intended parents, but rest assured our fee schedule will work with you so that you can take home your baby without worry.

Fee is variable based on the surrogate’s location and whether they have surrogate friendly insurance. Experienced surrogates charge significantly more.

Some surrogates have medical coverage. If yours does not, or if the carrier’s medical insurance is inadequate, you will provide medical insurance for prenatal care, delivery, and postpartum care and a one-year life insurance policy. Please note that these are estimates and may vary depending on the types of policies purchased. Because Alcea has such a meticulous upfront screening and matching process, most of the contract details have already been discussed – just another way our experience is decidedly different in maintaining cost for our intended parents
Alcea Surrogacy includes the drafting of the Agency Agreement in its agency fee; each party will retain independent legal counsel to review and discuss the agency contract if desired. When it comes time to draft your surrogacy contract, you can count on our third partner reproduction attorney to be your partner and advocate in the process.
As the intended parent, you are responsible for the legal costs incurred for both the gestational surrogacy agreement and the pre-birth order process, but your surrogate’s legal fees are covered within your agency expense. The carrier is provided with independent legal counsel to review and edit the contract to their satisfaction.
