Jessica & Aaron Rushley started IVF in 2015 when she was diagnosed with CAH, an adrenal condition that causes too much testosterone and makes her ovaries appear poly-cystic. After 2 IVF retrievals and 4 negative embryo transfers they started their surrogacy journey in June 2016. They live in Perrysburg, OH and spent $35,000 on their journey. After one successful double embryo transfer their daughter was born in May 2017.
Sara & Zach live in Indiana, and Sara was diagnosed with MRKH (absence of uterus) as a teenager. They decided Surrogacy would be the way to have children once they were married.

With the help of an amazing foundation, and carrier they were able to spend around $30,000 on their journey.

Our journey is what sparked this website! Our out of pocket costs were $25,000 including IVF. Here's how we did it!
As I always tell everyone, being informed is your best chance at being able to afford surrogacy. I am a researcher by nature, if research and details aren't your thing it will be difficult to save money while having a beautiful journey without incident. (not impossible! just more difficult.)
Our expense total was: $34,584.16
We received $10,000 in the forms of a grant and donations, so our actual out of pocket expenses were $24,584.16.
