Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada works with singles, couples, and families who need the help of a surrogate – gestational carrier – to create their family.

You will be able to choose the professionals -IVF clinic, health provider, or fertility specialist- you want to be involved with your gestational surrogacy process. We will act as a liaison between you, the gestational carrier, and these professionals. Coupled with our vast surrogacy network and experience, we will help coordinate and manage these relationships through your surrogacy journey.
Surrogacy Services for Intended Parents:
- Matching: we maintain a database of potential gestational carriers and egg donors who meet our specific minimum standards. Those qualifications are compiled into an extensive list. The gestational carriers are asked to submit a comprehensive profile of themselves with photos. Their identity will remain anonymous until a match has been made. If you, as the intended parent, have any specific requirements for your gestational carrier, we will do our best to locate an appropriate match for you.
- Screening: our agency recommends that all gestational carriers go through a full physical, psychological, and social screening, along with a criminal background and credit check. These screening procedures ensure that the overall surrogacy journey will be safe, healthy, and successful to all involved parties.
- Home Visit(s): when feasible, Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Reno conducts a home study on a gestational carrier. Our highly-trained staff glean as much information as is necessary to better get to know the gestational carrier herself. We believe everything learned is invaluable to the surrogacy process.
- Escrow Management: Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada will set up an account with a third-party company to hold and distribute funds throughout the life of the surrogacy contract. As an intended parent, you will be asked to place funds into the trust account to cover any and all costs including, but not limited to, screenings and the legal fees needed to retain an attorney for the gestational carrier. The exact balance due will be determined by the legal contract between you and the gestational carrier.
- Legal Representation: to ensure the utmost safety and protection for all parties involved, it is vital that you and your gestational carrier have competent legal representation to come to an agreement throughout the surrogacy process. As an agency, we will make sure you have expert representation for a smooth and stable journey.
- Medical Coordination: we will coordinate with the hospital, clinics and medical professionals working with you and the gestational carrier on your behalf to minimize the risk of stress and miscommunication during the birth of the child.
- Insurance Coverage: in most cases, a gestational carrier’s personal medical insurance will not cover the surrogacy process. Thus, we will make sure that you have the most appropriate and cost-effective medical coverage to protect your financial well-being.
Frequently Asked Surrogacy Questions for Intended Parents:
What is the difference between gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy?
There are two types of surrogacy: gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy. In a typical gestational surrogacy arrangement, intended parents create embryos through in vitro fertilization. One or more of these embryos is implanted in a surrogate (sometimes known as a gestational carrier), who carries the child or children to term, but has no genetic relationship to them. Gestational surrogacies make up the vast majority of modern surrogacy arrangements.
By contrast, traditional surrogates typically become pregnant through artificial insemination, and have a genetic connection to the child or children they carry for their intended parents. At Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada, we only provide gestational surrogacy services.
What is the surrogacy process?
While it’s relatively simple to understand ‘What is Surrogacy?”, understanding the process is a bit more involved. The surrogacy process can be complex, and working with an experienced agency like Adoption and Surrogacy Choices of Nevada helps navigate the milestones and provides support when you need it most.
A general overview of the surrogacy process looks like this:
• Apply as an intended parent (or surrogate)
• Complete initial consultation (intended parents) and meet all requirements (surrogates)
• Parent and Surrogate Matching
• Medical screenings, surrogate medications, and embryo transfer
• Confirmation of pregnancy
• Delivery day and beyond

How do I become an intended parent?
The monetary benefits of becoming a surrogate mother are significant, but the indescribable sense of fulfillment our surrogates get from helping intended families bring a child into the world cannot be found doing anything else.
Surrogate pay depends on a few factors: where the surrogate lives, whether or not she has insurance, and if she’s an experienced gestational carrier.
Surrogates can earn up to $60k in pay and benefits.
Why choose surrogacy to grow your family?
Surrogacy allows couples and individuals from a variety of backgrounds, ages, and sexual orientations to build their families.
Intended parents who use surrogacy include:
- Heterosexual couples who have struggled with infertility
- Intended mothers who are unable to carry a child
- Intended parents who have a genetic defect or health condition they don’t want to pass onto the child
- Same sex intended parents who want to have a genetic link to their baby
Each surrogacy journey is unique!
How much do surrogate mothers cost?
Surrogate mother pay depends on a few factors: where she lives, if she has insurance, and whether or not she’s a first time carrier. On average, surrogate mothers are paid a base fee of $30k-$40k, plus additional compensation and benefits.
If you live in the U.S. you can estimate surrogacy costs around $108K-$156K for a journey, exclusive of IVF costs. The actual journey costs depend on the services intended parents need, your insurance and the details of your specific journey. Each journey is unique – there is no “one cost fits all”.
