First of all, surrogacy should not be seen as an easy path to riches. Typically the compensation paid to a surrogate is about what someone would be paid to work a part-time job. Surrogacy compensation should not be considered as a sole source of income; if that is the case, surrogacy is not the “job” for you.
Having said that, the compensation paid to a surrogate may allow her to improve her or her family’s financial position, perhaps go back to school, put a down payment down on a house, or be a stay-at-home mom to her own young children.
A detailed breakdown of our surrogate compensation package will be provided by your surrogate coordinator
Expenses typically reimbursed under a surrogacy agreement include:
- Local travel to medical appointments, screenings, or fertility procedures
- Maternity clothing
- Feeding allowances
- Psychological support
- Pumping breast milk if required
- Required bed rest
- Required time off from work
- Legal fees related to surrogacy
Surrogacy should never be viewed simply as having a baby for money. A surrogate helps another to achieve something he or she has been yearning for: the joy of having a child. It might even change your life! You could help build a family from the ground up and be emotionally and financially rewarded in the process.
