What are the benefits to being a surrogate?

The main benefit to being a surrogate mother is knowing that you are helping to change someone’s life by helping build their family through gestational surrogacy. The surrogacy experience and relationships developed during the surrogacy journey will be a part of your life forever, helping to shape those around you. In addition, many women use the compensation they have earned to start college funds for their own children or provide additional financial stability for their own families.

How much do surrogates earn?

A first-time surrogate can expect to earn a base compensation of $55,000. Surrogates are also paid a monthly allowance in addition to compensation for miscellaneous expenses. Compensation is higher in the event of unexpected situations or major complications during pregnancy like a multiples pregnancy or a c-section. Experienced surrogates can expect a higher base compensation. Family Makers works with each individual surrogate to tailor a compensation package that you are comfortable with.

What is the surrogacy process?

Your surrogacy journey starts with the completion of your quiz. After your quiz is received, a Case Manager will be in touch with a personal note within 24 hours (often much less!) to discuss the next steps in our agency screening process.

The agency screening process will involve collecting and reviewing your medical records, criminal background checks, and a video consult by a surrogacy professional. Your insurance will also be reviewed to see if it is usable for surrogacy, if it is not usable Family Makers will obtain insurance for you. Your dedicated Case Manager will take the time to get to know you on a personal level as well to be sure you are matched with Intended Parents that are similar in personality and that you have things in common with.

After you are matched with one of our Intended Parents, you will have your psychological consults and medical screening at the parent’s IVF clinic. Once you have been cleared medically, you will enter the legal phase of your journey. During this time, both the surrogate and Intended Parents have their own legal representation to finalize a legal surrogacy contract, the cost of both attorneys is covered by the Intended Parents.

When legal clearance is received, the IVF clinic is notified that you are ready to start cycling and preparing for embryo transfer. Once the pregnancy is confirmed with a fetal heartbeat, you will be released to your OBGYN for the remainder of the pregnancy & delivery, this is also when your base compensation payments will start.

A typical surrogacy journey is approximately 18 months from the time you complete your application process to delivery.
