How much do surrogates get compensated?

Surrogate Compensation

Base Consideration

Surrogate Mothers are extraordinary women. Surrogate mothers provide a gift of a lifetime. The gratification you'll experience and feel is life changing. Our team will work with you to ensure that your effort is recognized through the generous compensation package our intended parents provide. Fees listed below do adjust depending upon the circumstances of the legal agreement between the intended parent(s) and surrogate mother. The fees listed below are offered as a general guideline to the intended parent and their surrogate mother when drafting a legal contract between parties.

Surrogates receive paid compensation depending on factors including the type of pregnancy and the number of previous pregnancies (surrogate mother experience).
