How much does a surrogate make?

We offer a generous compensation package of up to $55,000, depending on your location and whether you have been a surrogate in the past. We aim to provide one of the best surrogate compensation packages in the industry.

How does surrogate compensation work?

Typically, $43,000 is the amount paid for a first time surrogate. Additional fees are paid for every additional child born past one, C-Section delivery, etc. All of this will be explained in detail during your consultation and interview with us.

Surrogates with a positive surrogacy experience receive higher compensation. i.e. $45,000 to $55,000. THESE ARE ESTIMATES. Please use this as a guideline.

What expenses are covered as a surrogate?

As a Surrogate, there are many benefits and expenses you are eligible for across various categories related to the surrogacy journey. No surrogate should incur expenses as a result of being a part of our program.  Here’s a breakdown of how we have our surrogates covered:

Medical and Psychological Expenses

Intended parents pay for all surrogate medical and psychological screening costs, medications, and medical expenses related to the embryo(s) implantation and the pregnancy.

Legal Fees

As a surrogate, you will enter into a legal agreement with the intended parents prior to starting any medications. All surrogates complete a legal consultation prior to signing their contract, so they have a full understanding of the legal process.


If you have health insurance that does not have surrogacy exclusions, that is great news for our intended parents and your base compensation will be higher. The intended parents will be responsible for all copays and deductibles related to the pregnancy. If you do not have insurance that will cover the pregnancy, the intended parents will purchase a plan that will cover this expense. The intended parents will also purchase a one-year life insurance policy on your behalf.

If you have any questions that have not been answered on the website, we encourage you to call us anytime.
