How We Help The Process

FINANCIAL

At Star Surrogacy, we understand that surrogacy programs come with a variety of costs that are sometimes difficult for intended parents to understand. Texas Surrogacy Agencies usually cost in total between $15,000 to $40,000. While this may seem like a lot to some parents, working with a reputable agency like Star Surrogacy ensures that the services and guidance we provide for intended parents are the best that agencies can offer. We make it a priority to limit agency costs as much as possible, offering you affordable options while still giving you the star treatment you deserve.

HEALTH

Monitoring and maintaining the health of your surrogate and future child with proper pre-screening and regular doctor checkups are keys to a successful surrogacy journey. Our nine-step surrogate process helps us to match you with ideal candidates based on your needs. We make sure that all of our surrogates are healthy, thoroughly screened, and have the resources and support systems necessary to fulfill a healthy nine-month pregnancy and successful labor.

LEGAL

As an elite surrogacy agency, we are closely connected with reputable attorneys who work to ensure you and your future family are protected by the law throughout the surrogacy process. These legal experts are committed to you and the success of your family by protecting you from those who may try to take advantage of less experienced intended parents. By working with Star Surrogacy, we can assist you in drafting contracts and agreements between you and your future surrogate as well as sustain legal practices between all parties.
