For everyone - when you came back for baby pickup, did you do a different type of visa? I have a tourist visa now and was just wondering if you switched to a medical visa instead.
For US citizens - what kind of costs did you have for getting the paperwork done after the birth? Basically, other than any NICU or hospital costs, what did you have coming out of pocket for the "red tape" part of the process between birth and home?
For everyone - I've been reading about people giving their surrogates things after the birth in addition to the money that comes as the fee. I hadn't thought about that because the money is such a large amount. What kinds of things have you done? Is it more than simple gift basket kind of things?
Thanks in advance for your time in responding.
