Cost Overview

How much do surrogates get?

No two babies are the same, nor is how they came to be!  That is why we customize all our financial packages to your family.  The best surrogacy agency won’t break the bank and will help you find the perfect surrogate mother to match with.  Our transparency with how much surrogates get paid and all other surrogacy costs comes from over a decade of building families.

Surrogate compensation is a great motivator for any woman who wants to become a surrogate.  However, we look for more.  Our surrogates are experienced surrogate mothers who share our dedication and passion to helping others complete their family.  Each candidate is carefully and extensively interviewed to ensure they are healthy and fit, and are actually nice people.  And of course, all our surrogates are mothers themselves with good family values.
