How Much Does Embryo Adoption Cost?


For families considering their options when it comes to infertility, it is natural to have some worries. One of the biggest hurdles facing many families: the cost.

What choices are out there? Many choose in vitro fertilization (IVF), an option that combines a man’s sperm and a woman’s egg outside the womb to create embryos. The average cost is $10,000-$18,000 per cycle.

Others see donor eggs as the way to go, but with a wide cost spectrum to acquire donor eggs ranging from $10,000-$50,000 it might not be affordable.

Did you know there is a new choice out there, less expensive than the others?

Embryo adoption allows adoptive families to give birth to their adopted child and, here’s the advantage… on average it costs $12,000-$15,000. The frozen embryo transfer portion of the cost may range from $4,000 - $8,000.

This makes embryo adoption one of the least expensive forms of adoption available.

What’s included in embryo adoption:
• The home study
• Agency fees
• Matching services
• Legal contract
• Shipment of the embryos to the clinic of your choice
• Lifetime maintenance of your records

This means you receive the best practices of adoption, the chance of achieving a pregnancy, legal security, freedom from worry about your records and, if all goes according to plan, an adopted child.
