UK Couples Paying £60,000 For Surrogates Despite UK System Of “Reasonable Expenses” Only

UK Couples are paying up to £60,000 for babies born via surrogate mothers despite a ban on commercial surrogacy, a study has found.

The UK's "Altruistic" system means surrogates may be reimbursed only "Reasonable expenses", which experts say should cost families no more than £12,000. A recent survey of 177 sets of parents by the University of Kent showed that the largest group - 30 per cent - paid between £20,000 to 30,000 during the surrogacy process, while 25 per cent paid between £10,000 and £15,000, and 21 per cent paid £15,000 to £20,000. Meanwhile seven per cent paid up to £40,000, and in five cases couples paid up to £60,000.

The law does not set a limit for "Reasonable expenses",  however cash transactions are supposed to be scrutinised by judges when they make parental orders, the process that transfers legal parenthood from the surrogate to the Intended Parents.
The large sums will fuel fears that total surrogacy prices are heading towards US levels, where the profit motive is allowed.
Surrogacy UK is one of a number of organisations campaigning for a change in UK’s 30-year-old law following a six-fold increase in legal applications linked to the process, from 55 in 2007 to 316 in 2016.It wants intended parents to be recognised as the legal parents from the moment of birth, so they can make crucial decisions regarding their child’s healthcare. Currently it takes an average of between six and 12 months for courts to grant parental orders.
The link to the full story is provided below.

At Kiran Fertility Services we understand the financial aspect of the surrogacy process and our Intended Parents are advised of the total cost. We have a affordable Guaranteed take home baby package of 50,000 USD all inclusive.  Our International Patient Co-ordinator for UK and Ireland is based out of London and  guides our parents step by step after their arrival with the baby back to UK with the process of parental order. Our “all inclusive” program attracts more Intended Parents from UK in fact, our next UK baby is due to be born next month via our Surrogacy Program in Mombasa, Kenya.

No Stable Partner, The Reason Behind Women Freezing Eggs: Study

Women tend to freeze their eggs not for career planning or education, but due to the lack of a stable relation according to a new study done by the Yale University in USA.
Lack of a stable relationship could be the reason why young women are increasingly opting to freeze their eggs, contrary to the popular belief of delaying childbearing due to pursuing education or career, says the study.

The findings showed that 85 per cent who chose to freeze their eggs, were without partners, and reflected six different life circumstances - being single, divorced or divorcing, broken up from a relationship, working overseas, single mother by choice or circumstance, and career planning.
Those with partners had circumstances such as a man not ready to have children, in a relationship too new or uncertain, with a partner who refuses to have children, or with a partner with his own multiple partners.

"Most of the women had already pursued and completed their educational and career goals but by their late 30s had been unable to find a lasting reproductive relationship with a stable partner. This is why they turned to egg freezing," said Marcia Inhorn from the Yale University in the US. "The medical literature and media coverage of oocyte cryopreservation - egg freezing - usually suggest that elective egg freezing is being used to defer or delay childbearing among women pursuing education and careers. "Our study suggests that the lack of a stable partner is the primary motivation," Inhorn said.

For the study, presented at the 34th Annual Meeting of ESHRE in Barcelona, the team conducted in-depth interviews with 150 women who had chosen to freeze their eggs at fertility clinics and had completed at least one cycle of oocyte cryopreservation.
"Clinicians must be aware of the role partnership 'troubles' play in the lives of egg freezing patients and make patient-centred care for single women a high priority," Inhorn said.

Across all our facilities at Kiran Infertility Center in India and abroad we have had many women (Single/Married), who decided to take the advantage of the technology of freezing their eggs, so they can fulfill their dreams of motherhood when they are ready.
We offer a very affordable package for oocyte freezing.

Why Ukraine Has Become A Hot-Spot For Child Surrogacy

Kiran Fertility Services has been helping Intended Parents via our Surrogacy Ukraine program for over 2 years. Surrogacy in Ukraine became very popular and Ukraine is called the 'capital of surrogate maternity' as the laws concerning surrogacy are relatively lax in comparison to other countries. The surrogate mother does not have the right to reconsider - that is, to keep the child instead of handing the child over to the Intended Parents. The price of the surrogacy process is also affordable.
"In many European countries surrogacy is allowed only if it does not entail a financial exchange," says Sergey Antonov, a lawyer from IRTSA Ukraine - one of the first firms in Ukraine to offer assisted reproduction services.

One of the laws issued by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine says that surrogacy can only be offered to a married couple which, for one reason or another, has been diagnosed as infertile and incapable of reproducing. 

We were always committed to help anybody to have a baby via our surrogacy program regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation or the fact that someone is or is not legally married and this is why we started with our Surrogacy Program in Kenya: https://surrogacykenya.org/
Surrogacy Kenya helped and is continuing to help many Intended Parents to have babies. It always feels good  to see "OUR" babies grow.
