Surrogate Mother Compensation

Surrogate mother compensation varies case to case. Typically a surrogate mother’s fee will range from $35,000 to $40,000 plus expenses, depending on experience. We ask that surrogate mothers realize the more reasonable their requested compensation, the sooner they will be matched. Surrogacy is a very costly process and can cause financial strain on individuals wanting to have a child.

As a gestational surrogate, your prospective parent is responsible for all expenses incurred as a result of the surrogacy cycle. These expenses include the following:

  • All Medical Expenses
  • Surrogate mother Compensation
  • Attorney Fees
  • Travel Expenses: For surrogate mothers who have to travel, these expenses are also provided:
    • Airfare for the surrogate mother and a travelling companion
    • Hotel accommodations (shared room for surrogate and companion)
    • Ground transportation
    • Up to $100 per diem

Many surrogate mothers come to Surrogacy America through word of mouth referrals from our current surrogate mothers. Refer a friend and receive a $100.00 referral fee upon completion of her medical clearance.
