If you are going to be a first time Surrogate in Atlanta, it can be confusing to understand the pay rate. It is important to work with a trusted agency to ensure that you will get paid a fair rate and that there is money to ensure you are taken care of (and pampered). If you qualify to be a surrogate, you have already gone through at least one healthy pregnancy and given birth, so you will know how much work it takes for you. Some women absolutely love being pregnant whereas others do not. You will need to think about your own experience, the emotional fatigue, the physical toll, and the time it will take you to recover after the pregnancy.
When you apply to become a Surrogate in Georgia, our team looks at your application and personal information to create a compensation rate for you. We will explain why you chose the rate we did so that you know why your rate may be higher or lower. For a first time Surrogate, you can expect to receive between $35,000 to $45,000 in base compensation and benefits. This rate is paid to you at pre-determined milestones.
If you have previously been a Surrogate and you want to repeat your experience (as so many do), you may be able to receive a higher compensation rate. We do this because you have already proven that you are able to remain healthy during surrogacy, you know the procedures you will go through, and you are able to take do some of the required steps by yourself.
For those who are a Surrogate for a second or third time, they tend to be more hands-on in the entire process – from choosing which Intended Parents they work with to some of the medical treatments. Compensation packages for these Surrogates are also personalized, but on average, they can expect to receive $45,000 – $55,000 total in compensation and benefits.
