Learn more about the compensation and additional benefits Surrogate Mothers receive during the Surrogacy journey. 
Package Pre-screening Payment : $1,500

Surrogates receive $1,500 of their compensation upon passing pre-screening.

Surrogate Base Fee: $63,000 - $110,000 (depending on where the Surrogate lives, and if she’s a first-time Surrogate)

Surrogates receive this payment in 10 increments. The first payment is provided after the positive pregnancy is confirmed, and the last when the Surrogate gives birth.


The following payments are in addition to the Surrogate Base Fee:

Surrogacy Contract Signing: $2,500

This is the remainder of the Surrogate’s bonus following the signing of the Surrogacy Agreement with the Intended Parents.


Medication Start Fee: $1,500

This payment is for the medications Surrogates take to prepare for the embryo transfer.


Maternity Clothes: $800

Prenatal Massage: $300

Surrogates receive these funds in the third trimester if the Surrogate’s medical care provider clears her to receive prenatal massages. The Agency supports the Surrogate in finding a reputable massage therapist.


Monthly Allowance: Sum of $3,000

This monthly allowance is paid in $200 per month installments starting the month the Surrogacy Contract is signed and ending one month after delivery, or upon termination of the contract by either party.


These funds can be used for childcare, cleaning services, or any other Surrogacy related needs.

If a Surrogate is put on bedrest, additional funds can be provided to cover the increased need for support.

Typically, up to $100/per day for childcare, and $100 per week for cleaning, can be provided.
