Why are the compensation numbers so different from what’s advertised?

Why are the compensation numbers so different from what’s advertised?

You are a very important part of a life-changing process, and it is important that you are fully compensated for your effort and expenses in this remarkable role. Surrogate compensation varies based on first time or experienced surrogate fee, singleton versus multiple pregnancy, the location of the surrogate, her employment status, does the surrogate have insurance that covers surrogate pregnancies, and if the surrogate has kids, will childcare be an issue later? Among a few factors…

Agencies are competing to attract the most qualified surrogate mothers to their programs to help the intended parents they serve.

Unfortunately, this has led to a trend in advertising higher than average compensation that first time surrogates won’t actually qualify for.

Rather than comparing agencies by the numbers, we encourage you to consider the more important factors that make an agency the right or wrong fit for your journey.

The compensation offered between various agencies is ultimately similar, regardless of what is advertised and is based on the same factors outlined above.
