Choosing the surrogacy agency that meets the expectations of couples can be a difficult decision, especially since it is rarely common practice. In addition to that, in most cases, the couple does not have close relatives or friends who have lived such an experience.
It is not a cause for concern if we understand that each couple is different and needs an agency that adapts to them, not the other way around. Therefore, it is important to know what you are looking for in an agency and under what conditions the contract must be carried out, these will depend mainly on the knowledge we have about the managed surrogacy center. Therefore, asking all the pertinent questions to the specialists before and during the process reduces possible mishaps in the future, each agency handles the information differently and many times it is not known what the patients think. For this reason, it is recommended that in the first visits all doubts are noted and then clarified in that or in the next sessions.
There are certain aspects that every couple must take into account when choosing the center that best suits their needs, including:
Not all surrogacy agencies have the same goal
Knowing the cause that motivates them is important to coincide with a specialized center in that area. For example: there are agencies specialized only in surrogacy for same-sex couples (homosexual couples) or only in heterosexual couples.
Celagem is a comprehensive agency, that is, it has all the elements to become parents. We have our own fertility clinics, a Surrogacy Agency, a Foundation for surrogate mothers, among others.
The economic contribution of the pregnant woman
There are agencies that only work with pregnant women that are offered altruistically, another is where the pregnant woman requires or requests a financial contribution to help the couple, on the other hand there are also agencies that provide both applicants for their choice. In addition, pregnant women must have contracts where they are supported and assisted by the agency that processes both parties.
Knowing the economic balance (or its approximate) is an important point to rule out some surrogacy agencies, this does not mean that the lower cost agencies have less benefits. And the highest costs are based on each section of the contract that leads to surrogacy. And many times it includes the legal proceedings of the new family member.
It is important to verify that the chosen surrogacy agency handles the entire legal process of the baby, especially if the partner or intended father is from abroad. That will save you a lot of time. If not, it is a fundamental commitment that you carry out all the procedures on your own.
Many centers have social networks or contact numbers at their disposal to establish the first communications, in this way communication is more accessible if the couple is abroad. That first contact is of the utmost importance. Empathizing with the center, where the couple feels comfortable and willing to continue the process, can make a difference.
With the prior knowledge, the couple is fully prepared to choose the correct surrogacy center. So, taking into account that all the above points are available in the agency, we present five reasons to choose Celagem as your surrogacy agency.
At Celagem we have a wide range of opportunities for future parents to live the experience from the moment they contact the agency until the arrival of the new relative.
