Overview of Surrogacy Costs

Excluding the costs of IVF on the part of the intended parents, the average, best-case scenario surrogacy journey costs $72,510.  Best-case scenario means that the first transfer resulted in a live birth and that the surrogate has medical insurance that covers her surrogacy pregnancy.

The items that I will discuss further in this lesson include legal fees, surrogate compensation and health insurance. These are all terms that can get a bit complicated.

As for fees related to progesterone-in-oil shots, embryo transfer, starting medication fees– these are usually all part of a standardized contract. There should not be too much discretion on average in your contract.
