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.
