We are looking to go through a surrogacy process for a third time, and unfortunately since our other surrogates are unable to carry again for medical reasons we are looking for someone new.  My question is, since we basically want the same contract but obviously with new information, is there a way of saving a little bit of cost on our end but still ensuring the surrogate gets  her full legal consult/counsel?  Would this be dependent on the lawyer or are we looking at paying for a full contract yet again even though we'd like everything the same??

IVF #1: January 2008; transfer to surrogate, chemical pregnancy
FET #1 (surrogate): June 2008 BFP!
FET #2 (new surrogate): February 2014 BFP
*delivery complications require another new surrogate :'(
FET #3 (another new surrogate): Dec 2016 BFN

FET #4: March 2017 BFN


Guess we're going again...

IVF #2: July 2017; fresh transfer to surrogate, BFN
FET #5 (4th transfer attempt): Oct 2017 BFN

FET #6 (5th transfer attempt): Feb 2018 BFN

You might want to call the lawyer you used and ask. My lawyer offered to draw up another surrogacy contract at no charge in my case. It had only been a short time after my first one was done however.

TTC since I was 28; Started fertility treatments at 35.

Dx: Male factor, Hashimotos, fibroids

April 2011-13 eggs retrieved: all dead except 1 immature egg that was ICSI'd; no embryos to transfer

Switched from Calgary RFP to VFC

IVF#2: November 2012, donor egg cycle- chemical pregnancy

FET#1: Feb 2013- m/c @ 6 weeks
