Frequently Asked Questions for Surrogates
General and Contacts
How much do surrogates make?
Surrogate compensation varies depending on your insurance, whether you've been a surrogate before, and the terms outline in your Carrier Agreement. For more information, see this page: How Much Do Surrogates Get Paid?
What is the difference between gestational surrogacy and traditional surrogacy?
Gestational Surrogacy is the process by which a fertilized embryo is implanted in a gestational carrier, who will carry the resulting child/children to term, but bears no genetic relationship to them. These are the types of arrangements that Circle Surrogacy facilitates. By contrast, traditional surrogates are both genetic and gestational mothers, and undergo artificial insemination and relinquish custody of the resulting child/children upon birth.
