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 is the cost.

What choices are out there?

Many choose 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.

Embryo adoption allows adoptive families to give birth to their adopted child and on average it costs $12,000-$15,000. The frozen embryo transfer 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:

  • Adoption home study
  • Agency or program fees
  • Matching services
  • Legal contract
  • Shipment of the embryos to a fertility clinic (if applicable)

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.
