Exploring the surrogacy consultation process
Welcome to the world of surrogacy! You will start your CSP surrogacy consultation process by meeting with our expert team, including an independent surrogacy attorney and a psychologist specializing in surrogacy. Bring all of your questions and ideas to your initial consultation, which will cover a wide range of topics.
- CSP’s surrogacy programs
- Desired surrogate traits
- Surrogate contact
- Legal aspects of surrogacy
- Financial considerations
- Abortion and selective reduction
CSP offers parents multiple consultation options to meet with our staff
CSP understands that for some parents, the expense of international travel will prohibitively increase the costs associated with surrogacy. To make international surrogacy more affordable, we offer Skype options for our surrogacy consultation process.
Full Skype Consultation
You can still experience a full consultation with CSP from the comfort of your own home. We do our best to ensure we bring our agency information to you completely via Skype. We request that we first speak or exchange emails with you to help us understand your situation. Please note that due to time differences involved in international surrogacy, your Skype consultation may have to occur over a two-day time period.
Mini Skype Consultation
During this 30-60 minute meeting, we can provide you with an overview of our program, and we invite you to share your questions and concerns with us.
CSP Office Consultations
We do believe that meeting face-to-face at our office allows all of us to get a better understanding of one another and permits a smoother flow of information. We encourage you to visit our office.
Full Office Consultation (Recommended)
Full office consultations allow us to dive deeper into the CSP surrogacy process. This will involve our experts from the medical, legal, psychological and administrative fields. We would like the opportunity to explain these areas to you in depth, so that you get a more complete idea of what you are considering.
Mini Office Consultation
During our mini office surrogacy consultation process, you will get the opportunity to view our facility and meet our surrogacy experts face-to-face. We will provide you with a high-level overview of our programs and will answer any questions you have about the process.
Staying in contact during the surrogacy consultation process
Intended parents stay in contact with the surrogate at least once every two weeks throughout the pregnancy. Our goal is to involve our intended parents as much as possible in the pregnancy. Most intended parents will attend at least two doctor’s visits, if possible, or speak to the surrogate’s physician on the phone. This is your child, and we believe you have the right to have all your medical questions answered.
The process of establishing parental rights begins in the second trimester.
Intended parents are present at the birth of their child. Typically, a baby will remain in the hospital for one day after birth. Once the baby is given a medical clearance, the parents will leave the hospital with their baby. The attorney helps the parents get the birth certificate and passport, if needed for international surrogacy.
