A Surrogate’s average compensation package ranges from $24,000 up to $35,000, depending upon her previous Surrogate experience. This includes compensation for procedures, expense reimbursements or lost wages. While it may sound like a lot, this is not “easy money”. All Surrogates go through a screening process so that the sacrifices and risks are well understood. There are medications involved, along with injections, IVF procedures, a greater chance for conceiving multiples, hormonal changes, stress, physical wear and tear, a significant time commitment, and other sacrifices made by both her and her family.
The primary benefit in being a surrogate is to help someone start a family. This has to come from a deeply caring part of her nature; and, the real reward is much more than the financial aspect.
