To be able to help intended parents to deal with egg donation or/and surrogacy packages, Parents Life created an IVF calculator. The aim of an IVF calculator was to decipher and harmonize the divergent cost structures involved in the entire egg donation or/and surrogacy and create a generic budget with expected cost estimates.
While Parents Life does not publicize each procedure’s cost sheet, the broad spectrum of information can be used to produce a generic budget.
The all-round listing of all cost components in standardized groups is the first of its kind and offers intended parents a definitive listing of possible costs. While many others do not offer clear estimates of all possible surrogacy cost components, Parents Life filled the omissions with data from own experience with intended parents that have undergone their services.
The budget consists of two parts: one has all the non-medical costs associated with a surrogate i.e. agency and legal costs, compensation and expenses. Another one has the egg donation and IVF costs i.e. donor matching, legal charges, compensation and expenses; and medical screening of all parties, IVF treatment, lab charges, medications, monitoring and other associated costs.
