What is the Cost of a Surrogacy Journey?

Surrogacy has become an option for couples who are unable or unwilling to carry a pregnancy themselves. But with this option comes the responsibility of finding a surrogate and the cost of the associated surrogacy journey. But before you begin the journey of finding a surrogate, it is important to understand what a surrogacy journey is and the different surrogacy expenses that come with the process, as well as the epxected legal and medical expenses.

The Average Cost of a Surrogate

With All Families Surrogacy, a first-time gestational surrogate earns $40,000 in base compensation (in all surrogacy-friendly states). While an experienced gestational surrogate earns $45,000 in base compensation (in all surrogacy-friendly states). At All Families Surrogacy, we believe surrogacy should be accessible to all, and our main goal is to make surrogacy affordable for Intended Parents.

 

What do surrogacy fees include?

As such, our surrogacy agency fees are below those of most agencies today and we have different affordable surrogacy options to choose from, depending on the level of support wanted:

 

Option 1: Full-Service Program

By far our most popular program, the Full-Service program gives you and your gestational surrogate the most comprehensive care and support for your surrogacy journey:

Other factors that affect the total cost of surrogate

Apart from the average cost of surrogacy, there are several other factors affecting the total cost of surrogacy. These include medical costs, legal fees, agency fees, travel and lodging expenses during medical visits and screenings, as well as compensation for the surrogate’s lost wages during pregnancy.

Furthermore, in egg donation, if a donor egg is required to achieve pregnancy then additional costs will be incurred. It is important to consider all these extra costs when calculating the overall cost of a surrogacy journey. In addition to financial considerations, it is also important to support all those involved emotionally throughout this process. This may involve regular meetings with psychologists and counselors to make sure everyone involved in the process feels comfortable and supported.

 

How can I lower my surrogacy costs?

One of the best ways to lower surrogacy costs is to research different options and take advantage of available discounts. For example, there are certain programs that provide free or discounted services for those who qualify. It is important to remember that the cost of surrogacy can vary greatly depending on where you live, so researching local providers and their services can help you find the most affordable option for your situation.

As you may have already learned from your research, there are many surrogacy agencies out there. Many offer basically the same services at similar fees. So how do you tell them apart and choose the right one for you? As with most things in life, we at All Families Surrogacy believe that when it’s the right fit, things just “click”.

 

Surrogacy is an effective way to achieve your parenting dreams

Everyone wants to be a parent, but not everyone has the opportunity to have a child of their own. Some people choose surrogacy as their best option for becoming parents. All Families Surrogacy is the best choice for many families and we have helped hundreds of intended parents achieve their parenting dreams.
