From the minute you sign with a surrogacy agency, how long will it take until you have a baby in your arms?
You've been waiting a long time to become a gay dad. You've done your research, and decided that surrogacy is the best fit for you. You're excited to get started, and even more excited at the prospect of the arrival of your little one.
But exactly how long is it going to take from the minute you sign on, until you have your baby in your arms?
On average, a surrogacy journey – from start to finish – can average between 16-21 months.
And while that sounds like a long time, remember that 9 months of that is your surrogate's pregnancy!
To help you better understand how long a surrogacy journey takes to complete, it's helpful to understand the different milestones along the way. Below is a general surrogacy process timeline from Circle Surrogacy. Remember, every surrogacy journey is unique, so the exact timing of your journey may be different than these estimates.
