Surrogacy Costs for Intended Parents

  • Agency Fee
  • $16,000.00
Our agency fees are divided into reasonable payments.
Upon submission of agency agreement ($5,000.00)
Upon completion of embryo transfer ($5,000.00)
Monthly increments ($1,000.00) beginning upon confirmation of fetal heart rate and continuing until the remaining balance ($6,000.00) is paid in full

If your gestational carrier does not become pregnant, we will coordinate additional cycles for free. You only pay our entire agency fee with a successfully completed surrogacy journey.

Our highly-inclusive Agency Fee includes:

Federal, State and Local criminal background checks
Credit check
Lifestyle screening
Medical records review
Psychological testing and evaluation
Legal fees associated with drafting of gestational carrier agreement for Intended Parents
Review by independent legal counsel on behalf of the gestational carrier
Medical insurance review and coordination
Post-delivery support

International Parents:
Please budget for a total agency fee of $18,000.

$6,000 is due upon match, with your remaining payments divided into reasonable monthly fees, but only if pregnancy is achieved.

  • Surrogate Compensation Packages
  • Starting at $40,000

Your gestational carrier will receive a base compensation amount, plus additional monthly allowances, compensation for undergoing procedures, a life insurance policy, maternity clothing, and additional compensation for special circumstances (ex. carrying multiples). Experienced gestational carriers receive approximately $5,000 – $10,000 more in compensation for their surrogacy journey.

  • Clinic Fees
  • $8,000 to $12,000

These are fees paid directly to your clinic of choice. We provide these estimated figures to help you budget. Your clinic financial coordinator will provide you with a detailed cost estimate of all required procedures before your cycle begins.

Cycle Medication Cost: $2,000 – $4,000
Cost of Embryo Transfer Procedure: $6,000 – $8,000

An additional $12,000 should be budgeted for clinic fees if you have not created embryos yet and will need to do an IVF cycle. This does not include the cost of compensating an egg donor. If you opt for genetic testing, many options are available and typically cost $4,000+.

  • Maternity Care Insurance
  • $6,000

Your gestational carrier may already have a medical insurance policy that is surrogacy friendly. If not, we have local insurance plans with low deductibles & cost-sharing, that offer comprehensive maternity care for approximately $450 per month.

  • Legal & Escrow Fees
  • $6,500

Drafting of your gestational carrier agreement is included in our agency fees. Fees associated with legal finalization of your surrogacy journey vary according to your circumstances. We suggest budgeting $5,000 for attorney and court filing fees. We work with SeedTrust as an independent escrow firm. They offer parents a flat-fee of $1,500 for all escrow services – no matter how many transactions are made with your account.

  • Total Cost of Your Surrogacy Journey
  • $76,500 - $80,000
