Using a Third Party to Carry
Using a third party to carry your child makes it possible for an intended parent who does not have the ability to successfully carry a pregnancy to full term to have a genetically-related child. An intended third party carrier does need to go through medical and psychological testing.
It is mandatory that there is a legal contract between your carrier and intended parents that outlines all aspects of the arrangement so that there are clear expectations of all parties prior to proceeding.
Mid Iowa Fertility can assist in making recommendations to attorneys who specialize in these contracts. All attorneys’ fees are the expense of the intended parents.
Please know Mid Iowa Fertility will not proceed with a third party carrier until a legal contract has been executed. This is to protect all parties and the practice should there be any disputes.
The cycle will be coordinated once the contract is signed by all parties.
Please call 515-222-3060, ext. 111 or ext. 112, for more information about this process.
