Most surrogate mothers share with us that they did not apply to be a surrogate
for the money. While the compensation helps support their emotional, physical and mental dedication to the surrogacy journey, surrogates carry a baby for intended parents because they truly want to help others.
As a surrogate, you have the opportunity to earn between $50,000 and $60,000
in payments and benefits. Surrogate mothers are paid a base fee of between $30,000-$40,000, plus additional compensation and benefits for milestones along their journey.
How much you will make as a surrogate will depend on a few criteria: the state you live in, if you have insurance, and if you're an experienced gestational carrier.
In Florida, surrogate mothers are compensated a base fee of $40,000. Florida is a "high-demand state" for surrogates, due to its favorable location to airports and clinics.Calculate your surrogate pay
