Costs For Your Surrogate

The cost of surrogacy can vary significantly, and a typical journey can range from $150,000 to over $250,000 depending on various factors such as the particulars for creating embryos, the specific agency or clinic you choose, legal fees, medical expenses, and compensation for the surrogate herself. Here’s an exemplary breakdown of the common costs involved:

If you’re going through a surrogacy agency, there will typically be fees associated with their services. This can include screening services,  matching you with a Surrogate, coordinating medical procedures, and providing support throughout the process. 

Typical ranges:  $25,000 – $75,000

 Surrogacy involves complex legal agreements to protect the rights of the intended parents and the surrogate involved. Legal fees can vary depending on the complexity of the agreements and the jurisdiction in which you’re operating.

This includes the costs of fertility treatments, In-Vitro Fertilization procedures, prenatal care for the surrogate, and delivery expenses. These costs can vary widely depending on the specific medical needs of the intended parents and the surrogate and for that reason it’s very difficult to provide an estimate.

Surrogates are typically compensated for their time, effort, and the risks associated with carrying a pregnancy. Compensation can vary based on factors such as location, the Surrogate’s experience, and any additional expenses she may incur during the pregnancy.

Typical ranges: $65,000 – $100,000+

Many surrogacy arrangements include counseling or therapy for both the intended parents and the Surrogate to help navigate the emotional complexities of the process.

Typical Ranges:  Actual rates based on meeting packages range from $2,000 to $3,000.

 If you or the Surrogate need to travel for medical procedures, you’ll need to factor in the costs of transportation, lodging, and other travel-related expenses.

Typical Ranges: Based on actual costs

Ensuring that the Surrogate has adequate health insurance coverage for the pregnancy and delivery is an important consideration. In some cases, Intended Parents may need to purchase additional insurance or cover medical expenses out of pocket.

Typical Ranges: Based on healthcare insurance policies and actual out of pocket medical expenses.
