How Much Does Surrogacy Cost?

Intended parents often wonder how much does surrogacy costs. Surrogacy can be quite expensive and the total cost can vary depending on several factors. Firstly, the country where the surrogacy takes place can affect the cost. For example, some countries have lower costs than others. Secondly, the type of surrogacy used (traditional or gestational) can also affect the cost. Lastly, the agency or clinic used and the personal circumstances of the intended parents can play a role.

In the United States, the average cost of surrogacy is around $100,000 to $150,000 and includes the surrogate's payment, medical bills, legal fees, and agency fees. However, in other countries like Mexico, the costs are typically lower. Nevertheless, the quality of care and legal protections for intended parents may vary.

Aside from the direct costs of surrogacy, there are other expenses to consider like travel costs, lost wages, and childcare expenses. Overall, surrogacy is a complex process that requires a significant investment of time, money, and emotion. Before deciding to go for surrogacy, intended parents should carefully consider their financial situation and personal circumstances.

What services are included in the average cost for surrogacy?

Since intended parents differ, there's no one-size-fits-all surrogacy solution. At World Center of Baby, we customize our surrogacy programs to align with most intended parents' needs, finances, and preferences. Intended parents can add or exclude options, but safety guarantees, personal guidance, and achieving family-building dreams remain constant.

Typically, surrogacy at World Center of Baby covers four broad services: medical expenses, surrogate compensation, lawyer advisement, and other costs. As expected, medical expenses comprise 40% of the total cost of surrogacy. Following closely is the surrogate compensation at 35%. Legal fees account for 20%, while the remaining 5% of the cost goes to miscellaneous expenses. 

Diagram Surrogacy Cost
Medical Expenses (45%)
The largest portion of the program cost goes towards covering medical expenses associated with the surrogacy process. This includes prenatal care, fertility treatments, prenatal testing, labor and delivery costs, as well as any additional medical procedures or interventions required during the pregnancy.
Surrogate Compensation 35%
This portion of the program cost covers the financial compensation provided to the surrogate mother for her time, effort, and the physical demands of carrying and delivering a baby on behalf of intended parents.
Lawyer Advicement 20%
Surrogacy involves complex legal considerations, and this portion of the program cost covers the fees for legal services and advice provided by experienced surrogacy lawyers. These legal professionals help navigate the legal aspects of surrogacy agreements, parental rights, and other related matters to ensure a smooth and legally sound process for all parties involved.
Other Costs (5%)
This category encompasses various miscellaneous expenses that may arise throughout the surrogacy journey. These can include administrative fees, travel expenses, insurance costs, and other miscellaneous expenses that may not fall under the categories of surrogate compensation, medical expenses, or legal fees.
