Costs of Surrogacy in Mexico

Exploring your options for starting or expanding your family can be a daunting task, especially when considering surrogacy. However, Mexico is becoming a more popular choice due to its competitive cost structure and robust healthcare infrastructure. In this article, we explore the programs and costs of surrogacy in Mexico.

General Costs Associated with All Surrogacy Programs

Regardless of the specific program chosen, there are several expenses that are generally associated with any surrogacy journey in Mexico. These encompass surrogate compensation, embryo transfer costs, surrogate insurance, and pregnancy care.

Surrogate Compensation
In Mexico, the compensation for the surrogate mother typically averages around $20,000 USD, and the total compensation is spread out across the pregnancy.

Surrogate Insurance
Surrogate insurance is a necessary safety net that protects both the surrogate and the intended parents. The cost of such insurance in Mexico can range between $5,000 to $6,500.

Embryo Transfer Costs
The cost of the embryo transfer procedures is usually around $6,000 depending on the agency you choose. It’s always recommended to plan financially for three transfers to be on the safe side. Not every embryo transfer results in a pregnancy and there are many factors that can contribute to the success of a transfer.

Pregnancy Care
Quality prenatal and postnatal care is essential to ensure the health of both the surrogate and the baby. In Mexico, the costs associated with pregnancy care are generally covered in the surrogacy package but can be around $5,000 to $15,000 if paid separately.

Delivery Costs
Delivery costs vary widely and depend on the agency, the hospital, pregnancy complications, and delivery type. The choice of a natural or cesarean birth can also have an effect on the overall costs. A natural delivery can range from $2,000 to $6,000 while a cesarean delivery will be higher. These costs usually cover prenatal care, the delivery itself, and postnatal care. However, it’s important to note that additional expenses may arise if there are any unforeseen complications or if the newborn requires additional medical attention. Despite these variables, the cost of childbirth in Mexico remains substantially more affordable compared to many other countries, which makes it an attractive destination for international parents seeking surrogacy options.

Understanding these general costs is crucial as they form the foundation of the overall expense in your surrogacy journey in Mexico. The following sections will delve into more specific costs associated with each program: the Shipped Embryo Surrogacy Program, Surrogacy Program with the Intended Mother’s Eggs, and Surrogacy Program Using an Egg Donor.

The Cost of Shipping Embryos to Mexico

One option is to create embryos in your home country and then ship them to a clinic in Mexico, we call this a “Shipped Embryo Program.” The primary advantage of this approach lies in convenience, especially if the intended mother or egg donor lives in the US.

However, the costs associated with this choice can mount up quickly. The process of shipping embryos to Mexico can cost around $7,000, depending on the original location of the embryos. Furthermore, the cost of an IVF cycle in the USA typically ranges between $15,000 to $20,000. For this reason, shipped embryo programs are generally more expensive than programs where the in vitro fertilization process takes place in Mexico.

The Cost of Creating Embryos

An alternative to shipping embryos is to create them at a clinic in Mexico. This option allows for better quality control and potentially higher success rates, as the clinic handling your embryos will also conduct the embryo transfer. Program types that include creating embryos in Mexico are both Surrogacy Programs Using and Egg Donor and Surrogacy Programs Using the Intended Mothers Eggs.

The total cost of the egg retrieval, sperm freezing, and fertilization procedures in Mexico totals around $11,500. An additional fee applies if you opt for PGT-A testing, which offers benefits like gender/sex selection. These are the average costs for each procedure.

Sperm Freezing/Storage: $500
Egg Retrieval: $8,000
In Vitro Fertilization: $3,000

Egg Donor Costs

This cost is only associated with Surrogacy Programs Using an Egg Donor. In Mexico, the cost associated with an egg donor can vary considerably, but it typically falls within the range of $6,000 to $10,000. This figure usually covers the legal fees and psychological screening of the donor. It’s important to note that costs can fluctuate depending on the agency and the specific circumstances of the donor. Some clinics may offer ‘shared cycle’ options where the cost is less, but the intended parents may receive fewer eggs. As with all aspects of surrogacy, these costs should be understood fully and factored into the overall budget from the outset.
