How Much Surrogate Mothers Make is The Biggest Question We Get
Surrogate compensation is a broad subject with many variations on exactly how much surrogates make.
How much do surrogates make is the big question, but it generally isn’t the biggest factor for a new surrogate in deciding to become one. Veteran surrogates realize there is much more to it than just the pay (Although it is important). It is safe to say that no one considering being a surrogate is simply in it for the money. 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 to the surrogate throughout the pregnancy at various stages. This keeps all parties involved in success throughout.
The average base amount surrogates get paid is between $40,000 to $55,000 based on experience. Other factors in surrogate pay are the number of fetuses being carried, and insurance coverage involved.
In addition to the base amount being paid, the surrogate also can receive $5,000 to $10,000 for expenses and benefits for her care. You will find that these additional benefits are designed to ensure that surrogates (and baby) 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.
