You’ve been dreaming of having children of your own for years, right? Infertility has plagued you and your partner, and you’ve tried almost everything. In researching your options, you may have discovered embryo adoption. But how does the cost of embryo adoption compare to your other options?
In vitro fertilization can cost anywhere from $10,000-$18,000 for one cycle and the cost of donor eggs can range from $10,000-$50,000. Adoption usually ranges from $20,000-$50,000, with international adoption being at the top end of the spectrum. On average, embryo adoption costs $12,000-$15,000.
The price of embryo adoption typically includes a home study, agency fees, matching services, legal contract, shipment of embryos to the adopting family’s clinic, and lifetime maintenance of records. On top of that, the adopting mother is able to carry her child to term and deliver it – just as if she had conceived the child naturally. With embryo adoption, adopting families get the best practices of adoption and the gift of experiencing pregnancy, at a lower cost.
