A surrogacy Los Angeles consultation helps potential intended parents work their way through their own surrogacy journey, getting personalized information about what the process will be, how everything works, and to better understand the role of the surrogacy agency. Before signing on with any agency, it is important to schedule a surrogacy consultation to see if it is a good fit.
Intended parents will likely have questions about surrogacy in general – but before that, they may feel apprehension about the actual consultation. Let us ease your mind a bit.
Just What Is A Surrogacy Consultation?
A surrogacy consultation is 2-2.5 hour meeting between a surrogacy agency and intended parents. It may also include doctors, administrative team members, lawyers, and even past surrogates and intended parents. This meeting is truly comprehensive and covers many of the major questions. However, it is still common to have questions after this meeting.
There are also informational sessions both in-person and online that you may want to consider if you are just in the starting stages of the process.
How In-depth Are The Questions?
If you have questions that are in-depth, feel free to write them down and get ready to ask them. A surrogacy agency should be an open book and willing to answer – and back up – everything that they say.
As far as answering questions, a surrogacy agency may ask some fairly personal questions to determine if this is a good path for you. Surrogacy should be personalized – the more open and honest you are with the questions, the better your experience will be.
When Should I Schedule A Surrogacy Los Angeles Consultation?
Most people tend to have their initial consultation about 2 years in advance, but the timeline can be shorter. Most people are talking to a few surrogacy agencies and trying to choose the one that makes the most sense for them. However, we encourage building a relationship early.
Remember that an initial consultation is not a commitment to do anything in particular. We know that people are just looking for information. This is a serious undertaking and requires quite a bit of discovery, discussion, and dissection. The initial consultation should be just a stepping stone. You may need time to make your decision, get your financials in order, or talk to other agencies.
Why Should We Do A Consultation?
The benefits of meeting with a surrogacy agency for an initial consultation are that you get information about the process, costs, and the agency itself. You will also get the chance to share your story and allow the people within the agency to get to know you a bit better. This can help with matching you, handling your case, and even as you grow as a family. Most importantly, you will see if the agency is a good fit for you or not. Do you share the same image for your journey? Is the staff friendly? Did you get a good feeling? These may seem simplistic, but you can get the answers to these questions fairly quickly during a surrogacy consultation.
