Frequently Asked Surrogacy Questions

Surrogacy helps those who are unable to have children become parents. Gestational surrogacy is a method of assisted reproduction where intended parents work with a gestational surrogate who will carry and care for their baby(ies) until birth. Intended parents use surrogacy to start or grow their families when they can’t do so on their own. It’s a process that requires medical and legal expertise, as well as a strong support process throughout the journey.

Through IVF, embryos are created in a lab at a fertility clinic. Sometimes the intended parents use their own genetic material. Sometimes, an egg donor is required. At the fertility clinic, 1-2 embryos are implanted into a gestational carrier, who carries the baby(ies) to term.
 

While it’s relatively simple to understand ‘What is Surrogacy?”, understanding the process is a bit more involved. The surrogacy process can be complex, and working with an experienced agency like Adoption and Surrogacy Choices helps navigate the milestones and provides support when you need it most.

A general overview of the surrogacy process looks like this:

  • Apply as a surrogate or as an intended parent
  • Meet all requirements (surrogates) and complete initial consultation (intended parents)
  • Surrogate and parent matching
  • Medical screenings, surrogate medications, and embryo transfer
  • Confirmation of pregnancy
  • Delivery day and beyond

Surrogate mother pay depends on a few factors: where she lives, if she has insurance, and whether or not she’s a first time carrier. On average, surrogate mothers are paid a base fee of $30k-$40k, plus additional compensation and benefits.

If you live in the U.S. you can estimate surrogacy costs around $108K-$156K for a journey, exclusive of IVF costs. The actual journey costs depend on the services intended parents need, your insurance and the details of your specific journey. Each journey is unique – there is no “one cost fits all”.

The monetary benefits of becoming a surrogate mother are significant, but the indescribable sense of fulfillment our surrogates get from helping intended families bring a child into the world cannot be found doing anything else.

Surrogate pay depends on a few factors: where the surrogate lives, whether or not she has insurance, and if she’s an experienced gestational carrier.

Surrogates can earn up to $60k in pay and benefits.

The length of the process depends on several factors. We typically tell intended parents that they should plan on a year and a half from the time they sign on with our agency until they have a child, although it can be quicker or longer depending on the legal requirements involved and the course of the IVF treatment.
