How much does a surrogate make?

Becoming a surrogate is an opportunity to change someone’s life while also helping to secure your own family’s dreams. Whether it’s saving for a home, starting a college fund for your kids, saving for retirement, or taking that dream family vacation, the financial compensation from surrogacy is designed to thank you for your time, effort, and incredible generosity by helping you achieve your personal goals. On top of that, the knowledge that you helped someone start or grow their family is truly priceless.

Surrogacy compensation depends on many different factors, including experience, location, and the specific needs of the pregnancy. We determine compensation on a case-by-case basis, as each surrogacy is unique. We aim to provide one of the best surrogate compensation packages in the industry. In most cases, compensation ranges from $45,000-$65,000. In addition to this compensation, remember that you will never have to pay any out-of-pocket costs to be a surrogate.

How does surrogate compensation work?

Typically, first-time surrogates receive $45,000. Surrogates receive additional fees for qualifying events (ex. carrying multiple children, c-section delivery, etc.). We are happy to provide additional details during your consultation and interview.

Surrogates with a positive previous surrogacy experience receive higher compensation, often between $50,000 to $65,000. It’s important to note these numbers are estimates to use as a guideline; each surrogacy is a unique experience, and compensation is determined based on a number of factors.

What expenses are covered as a surrogate?

As a surrogate, you are eligible for many benefits and expenses across various categories related to the surrogacy journey. No surrogate will ever incur expenses as a result of being a part of our program. Here’s a breakdown of how we have our surrogates covered:

Medical and Psychological Expenses
Intended parents pay for all of the surrogate’s medical and psychological screening costs, medications, and medical expenses related to the implantation of the embryo(s), pregnancy, and delivery.

Legal Fees
As a surrogate, you will enter into a legal agreement with the intended parents prior to starting any medications. All surrogates complete a legal consultation prior to signing their contract, so they have a full understanding of the legal process. The intended parents pay for all legal costs.

If you have health insurance that does not exclude surrogate pregnancies, that is great news for our intended parents! Surrogates with surrogate-friendly health insurance receive a higher base compensation. The intended parents are responsible for all copays and deductibles related to the pregnancy. If you do not have insurance that will cover the pregnancy, the intended parents will purchase a plan to cover this expense. The intended parents will also purchase a term life insurance policy on your behalf.

“Surrogacy is a very dedicated and rewarding journey for everyone involved. Jennifer and her team made the process much, much easier. They are very kind, welcoming and professional. They work very hard to make sure everything is lined up when its needed. If there ever was an issue that needed to be addressed; she was on top of it immediately. She even came with me to one of my appointments, so I didn’t have to go alone. I have made very good friends with the intended parents along the way. I have chosen to do surrogacy again with the Eggceptional Fertility to help another family that is in need. I would highly recommend this group of ladies to anyone and everyone who is interested. I could not have done it without them.”

Tiffani S.

“Jennifer and her team are some of the most amazing people I’ve ever had the joy to work with and know! They are always incredibly kind, very accommodating, and proactive if there’s an issue to address. However, with Eggceptional Fertility, problems rarely, if ever, arise. I’ve chosen to do multiple donor cycles with Eggceptional Fertility, and I could not be happier to have such a wonderful group facilitate such vital procedures. There is nothing more fulfilling than helping loving couples achieve their dreams. Whether you are a donor like myself or an intended parent, you are in terrific hands!”

Tithi A.

“I’ve had such an amazing time working through this donation. I couldn’t imagine working with anyone besides the Eggceptional Fertility. Everything was handled so quickly, and I felt taken care of. I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into me and the intended parents.”

Ashleigh H.

“After learning more about donating my eggs and finishing my first cycle, I can honestly say that I am very grateful for my experience with Eggceptional Fertility. As a full time student, I appreciate how accommodating they were to my time and schedule. I attribute the success of my donation to the personal relationships I made with the Eggceptional Fertility They genuine cared for my well being and I cannot thank them enough for their kindness from start to finish.”


“My husband and I are very happy with our experience with Eggceptional Fertility. We were devastated when we learned that I suffer from a condition called Premature Aging of the Eggs and that the chances of me conceiving were almost nonexistent. Jennifer and her staff made our experience comfortable and stress free. We can’t begin to express our gratitude to Jennifer and her staff for making our dreams a reality. We are thrilled to say we are expecting our twins December.”
