    I got to know through this article that the cost of surrogacy differs widely from place to place. You can get a cheap treatment and the same treatment is costly at another place.

    Before the start of treatment, you should be clear of what is included in the cost and what is not. Some hospitals don't give the transparent idea and then ask for more money afterward.

    According to this article, the cost of surrogacy is least in Chennai. Glad to know that as I am a resident of Chennai. I would suggest my relatives who live in another state to come to Chennai for their treatment of surrogacy.

    Surrogacy cost is definitely much higher than IVF. Is there any surety of becoming a parent by surrogacy? I feel it's all the matter of decision you make with a little bit of luck.
