Surrogate mother pay can vary, but in general, average surrogate pay can be between $50,000-$60,000. This estimated surrogacy pay includes a surrogate's base fee – which can be between $30,000-$40,000 – as well as the additional compensation and benefits she receives throughout the journey.
A surrogate mother's base fee is determined by a few factors:
1. The state she lives in
2. Whether or not she has health insurance
3. If she's an experienced gestational carrier
Once a base fee is established, a surrogate will then receive compensation and payments both before she's pregnant, as well as throughout the pregnancy.
