How much does surrogacy cost?
Creating a budget for surrogacy is very difficult as there are so many different factors to consider, and every situation is unique. Costs are dependent on surrogate compensation, health insurance, lost wages, travel, and potential complications. However, we know that having a budget or an accurate estimate of costs is important to financially plan your surrogacy journey. We created the Family Choice Surrogacy Expense Calculator to help you get a better idea of what you can expect.
The relationship between Intended Parent and Surrogate is a journey that requires trust, cooperation, and a mutual desire to make good
decisions along the way. These elements are created and supported best through thorough education about the surrogacy process.
To that end, Family Choice Surrogacy introduces our proprietary Surrogate certification program Foundations of Surrogacy. This comprehensive
surrogate training track consists of seven modules, including quizzes to verify knowledge transfer.

“Family Choice Surrogacy won me over from the consultation. I felt that they cared about me and my journey and would do everything they could to help see me through to the end: fatherhood. This is exactly what happened. Never once did I feel like I was simply a number or appointment or name on an invoice.”
–Ryan, Intended Parent
“Family Choice Surrogacy is an agency that lives up to its name. Both Leah and Kristie always made sure to stay in contact during my journey at least once every other week (my choice for every other week) just to see how I was doing. I would highly recommend and absolutely do another journey.”
The Best Agency Ever: Family Choice Surrogacy. They didn’t try to oversell me on anything and were helpful, kind, professional & informative. After my very first call I knew that they were the ones I wanted to help guide me through the process. I didn’t want to just be a number on a list with a big agency. I wanted a personal relationship. This is exactly what I received.
I had an amazing experience as a surrogate with Family Choice. Communication is top notch and I was always impressed by their quick responses and ability to keep track of everything. You can tell that they truly value and respect their surrogates and want to ensure that anyone that signs on with them is educated and prepared for what is to come as much as possible.
I really had all the support and all my questions were answered even though I’ve asked some of them more than twice we have 2 beautiful healthy baby boys and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you Leah!
–Vestina, Intended Parent
FCS was absolutely awesome to work with! They helped us at every step along the process, and coached us as this was our first time through the surrogacy process. Leah and Kristie are incredibly knowledgeable and go out of their way to help intended parents. They truly care about helping others, and this makes all the difference!
–Tim, Intended Parent
Leah and Kristie both were with me every step of the way as a surrogate! Any questions or concerns I had were answered promptly even if they came up in the middle of the night I was first priority it seemed next morning. Very friendly and professional. Would recommend this agency to anyone.
