Many agencies set a “one size fits all” base compensation rate for every surrogate. At FCS, we believe that, along with our guidance, each woman must determine what compensation they are comfortable with. Base compensation is also affected by the surrogate’s insurance program coverage and if the intended parent(s) will be required to purchase a policy to cover the pregnancy.
- Average gestational surrogate base compensation is $22,000-$30,000 for first time surrogates
- Average gestational surrogate base compensation for second-time surrogates is $28,000-$32,000
- Many factors contribute to a gestational surrogate’s total compensation such as:
- Maternity clothes
- Lost wages
- Travel expenses
- Mental health support
- Multiples pregnancy, and more
