Surrogate compensation is a broad subject with many variations on exactly how much surrogates make. I think that it is safe to say that no one considering being a surrogate is simply in it for the money. While the compensation is good, it is a 24 hour a day job. So, the hourly compensation wouldn’t calculate to be very substantial. But the overall pay and rewards are exciting!
Surrogate compensation is a base amount paid in installments throughout the pregnancy. The average base amount is between $25,000 to $35,000 based on experience, number of fetuses being carried, and insurance coverage.
In addition to the base amount, the surrogate also receives allowances and benefits for her care. You will find that these additional benefits are designed to ensure that surrogates are well taken care of, comfortable and as worry-free as possible.
Ultimately, every surrogate pregnancy is different; but, we make sure that you are fairly compensated for the incredibly important and honorable role you have on someone’s journey to parenthood. Frankly, true compensation is incalculable.
