How Much Do Surrogates Get Compensated?

Surrogates usually receive a base compensation amount as well as other compensation and benefits throughout the process.

At 3 Sisters Surrogacy, YOU decide your base compensation.

Compensation packages usually start around $40k, and go up depending on experience, insurance, location, and other variables such as multiples, travel, bed rest, etc. The exact amount of base compensation you will receive as a surrogate is determined on an individual basis and depends on a number of factors:

  • Intended parents’ budget
  • Previous surrogacy experience
  • Number of previous pregnancies
  • The overall success of surrogacy
  • Health insurance coverage
  • Compensation varies by state

Benefits and Compensation

In addition to your base compensation as a surrogate, there are special benefits you will receive in the time before you are pregnant. Below are a few examples of common pre-pregnancy benefits:

  • Travel expenses for doctors’ appointments
  • Relevant medical expenses not covered by your own health insurance (including co-pays)
  • Fees for screenings, cycle medications, and embryo transfer (varies by agency)
  • Childcare costs
  • Lost income (from time off for surrogacy obligations)

Once pregnancy has been confirmed, you’ll begin to receive additional compensation. Availability and amounts may vary depending on agency policies, but the following are examples of commonly offered benefits:

  • Continuing travel, medical, and childcare assistance
  • Monthly allowance, typically around $150-200 a month (unless agency uses flat-rate)
  • Money for maternity clothes
  • Legal and social work support
  • Counseling, support groups
  • Coverage for additional invasive procedures
  • C-sections
  • Amniocentesis

Other benefits that may or may not be offered by a given surrogacy agency include the following:

  • Termination fee (if necessary)
  • Canceled cycle fee
  • Compensation for breast milk
  • Coverage for damage to reproductive organs
  • Coverage for bed rest (as ordered by a doctor)
  • Additional insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Complications insurance
  • Coverage for post-delivery recovery expenses

All medical bills should be covered primarily by your health insurance, but any other medical expenses directly related to your pregnancy will be covered by the intended parents (including insurance co-pays).

It’s an amazing adventure and our goal has always been to be the “Sister” you need to talk to, to count on to be there for you, and to hold your hand on this path.

Frequently Asked Questions

A surrogate mother is a woman who agrees to carry a baby to term for the purpose of giving that child to a set of intended parents. Surrogate mothers are commonly used by couples who suffer from infertility (or otherwise choose not to conceive on their own) to have and raise genetically related children.

There are many reasons for being a surrogate mother, so it depends on the individual. The common thread all surrogates share is a desire to help couples have the biological children they dream of.

In traditional surrogacy, the egg is provided by the surrogate, making the baby the surrogate mother’s biological offspring. In gestational surrogacy, the egg is donated by the intended mother, and the embryo is implanted in the surrogate by In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).

A gestational carrier is a woman who becomes pregnant with the genetic offspring of the intended parents in gestational surrogacy. A traditional surrogate pregnancy is the carrying of an embryo formed by impregnating the surrogate with the intended father’s sperm.

Yes! Having your tubes “tied” only affects your body’s ability to release eggs for insemination, not your body’s ability to take up an embryo in the womb. Because 3 Sisters Surrogacy only employs gestational carriers and not traditional surrogates, there is no need for you to provide an egg.

Possibly, but it depends. You will, of course, be asked to complete a medical exam that includes a pap smear, vaginal ultrasound, hysteroscopy, and blood testing for infectious disease as part of the application process to be a gestational surrogate. Any spouse or partner(s) will also be required to undergo this blood testing.
