Cost of Surrogacy

Advocates for Surrogacy strives to offer Intended Parents a variety of options from full service programs to individualized concierge services.  We offer cost of surrogacy saving initiatives for those on a tighter budget.  The following table outlines various options and provides a general summary of costs and fees.  It is important to note that each situation is different and this information is presented as a general guide.  Many factors can affect the final cost of surrogacy such as the particular surrogate candidate’s compensation, the state where the surrogate resides, IVF clinic costs and other factors such as insurance.  During the matching phase with surrogate candidates, we provide detailed analysis of the costs involved based on the particular state the surrogate lives in,  legal costs for securing parental rights in a particular state, insurance costs if the surrogate candidate is not insured, financial considerations particular to a surrogate and IVF clinic costs.
