Compensated surrogacy, also known as commercial surrogacy, is when a surrogate gets compensation (also known as base pay). Typically, first-time surrogates receive $50,000-$90,000. Repeat surrogates can often receive more — up to $110,000.
Altruistic surrogacy is when a surrogate mother decides not to take base compensation for their time. Surrogates sometimes choose this type of surrogacy because the intended parents are close friends or family members.
Surrogate professionals advise surrogates to take some base compensation – even if it’s smaller than the typical amount – to ensure they are compensated for their time and energy.

Surrogates never have to pay for their surrogacy- and pregnancy-related expenses. This is because the intended parents cover all surrogate fees. These fees include:
Intended parents should plan to spend anywhere from $60,000 to $150,000.
