Why Do Surrogates Get Paid?

Regardless of your reasons for wanting to become a surrogate, we believe our surrogates should receive surrogate pay for their time and dedication.

Becoming a surrogate mother is a way to change someone’s life. You get to make the dreams of hopeful parents come true by carrying and delivering a child for those who are not able to do so for one reason or another.

It’s hard to think of a more valuable service one person could provide to another. That’s why surrogates get paid — because it is extremely deserved.

If you feel conflicted about wanting to give the gift of parenthood but also wanting to get paid, we’re here to advocate for you to get the surrogate mother pay you deserve.

Surrogates Can Earn Compensation and Change Lives

The decision to become a surrogate is often a carefully considered and deeply emotional one. Many women are drawn to surrogacy by a desire to help others experience the joy of parenthood, driven by an altruistic motivation that comes from the heart. It’s natural for surrogates to also want to receive surrogate pay, as they navigate the surrogacy process alongside their everyday responsibilities.

On one hand, there's the desire to bring happiness to those who can’t have a child on their own, and on the other, there's the practical need for surrogate mother compensation. Just know that regardless of your reason for choosing surrogacy, you’re providing a generous service and deserve to be compensated accordingly.

Surrogacy is an Investment for Everyone

When you decide to become a surrogate, you're committing to a journey that spans several months, often more than a year. During this time, you'll undergo extensive medical evaluations, adhere to a regimen of medications and appointments and carry the baby to term.

You’ll be devoting your emotional and physical energy to this process. Just as the parents invest in the surrogacy process to grow their family, you can invest in helping others achieve their dreams of parenthood while receiving compensation for your time and effort.

Compensation for Time and Effort

Surrogacy is not just a nine-month commitment; it's a process that involves careful preparation, medical procedures and emotional support. Surrogate pay acknowledges the time and effort surrogates invest in this journey. In addition to base pay, it helps cover:

  • Medical Expenses: Surrogates do not bear the financial burden of medical procedures, including in vitro fertilization (IVF) and prenatal care. Surrogate mother compensation ensures that surrogates have access to top-notch medical care throughout the journey.

  • Lost Wages: Taking time off work for medical appointments and recovery after childbirth can result in lost income. Surrogate pay helps offset these financial losses.

  • Travel and Accommodation: In some cases, surrogates may need to travel for medical appointments or to meet with parents. Compensation covers travel expenses, ensuring that surrogates can participate in the surrogacy journey without financial strain.

  • Legal Fees: Both you and the parents will acquire your own surrogacy attorney to help guide you through the surrogacy legal process and ensure your rights are protected.

The Value of Your Contribution to the Surrogacy Process

You play a valuable role in helping individuals and couples fulfill their dreams of parenthood. Your compassion, dedication and willingness to help others should not go unnoticed. Compensation is a way of recognizing the value of your service and ensuring that you are supported

The compensation received by surrogates varies based on factors such as location, experience and the specific surrogacy agency they work with. It's important to note that surrogate pay is not payment for the baby but rather reimbursement and reward for the time, effort and expenses incurred during the surrogacy journey.
