HOW MUCH DOES SURROGACY COST?

SURROGACY COSTS

INVESTING IN YOUR FUTURE & YOUR FAMILY

We offer three programs to suit the various needs of our clients: Legacy, Legacy+ and Heritage. For each program you can choose whether you want a fixed or variable pricing option. Both options are designed to provide you with an exceptional customer experience, high level of care, and concierge services tailored to your unique needs.

When evaluating the actual costs of our surrogacy processes, the average total costs for each program range as follows:

Legacy: $193,000 to $230,000+

Legacy+: $262,000 to $300,000+

 Heritage: $460,000 to $500,000+

GROWING GENERATIONS SECURE PROGRAM

Every successful surrogacy process contains the same elements: a great surrogate, a pregnancy, and a baby. Each case, however, will have variations that influence the total costs. Your final budget will be shaped by the surrogate’s location, her compensation package and wages, the number of attempts it takes to get pregnant, as well as several other potential expenses that cannot be predicted ahead of time.

 

To help you control costs from the very beginning of your process, we developed the Growing Generations Secure Program, or GG Secure. With GG Secure, a fixed-pricing alternative, you pay one amount, and we cover the actual expenses below from the beginning of your process to the moment your baby is released from the hospital:

 

  • Surrogate’s base compensation and expenses such as lost wages, home help, and childcare.

  • Legal expenses, including paternity legal work.

  • Non-medical expenses related to surrogate re-matches, miscarriages, and additional embryo transfer attempts.

  • Payment of our service fees.

  • Surrogate related insurance expenses.

In our Secure Program, your additional surrogacy process expenses are limited to:

 

  • IVF medical expenses: medical screening, medications, and any other medical services performed by your IVF clinic.

  • Twins: we will collect an additional $40,000 to cover the additional compensation and expenses for your surrogate upon confirmation of a twin pregnancy.

  • Breast milk: we can assist in negotiating a compensation and expense allotment to your surrogate for her providing you breast milk.

  • Newborn expenses: for clients without US health coverage.

  • Selection of a surrogate with compensation that exceeds the base compensation of $62,000.

  • Elective Procedures.

  • Your personal expenses along the way (i.e. travel to the delivery).

We have offered variable pricing programs for years, and they still provide you with the same quality of service Growing Generations is known for. The variable pricing program could be your best option if there is the possibility you need to discontinue your process early, or if you just prefer to pay actual expenses.

In the variable pricing program, you will receive funding requests based on actual and estimated expenses to complete your process. Along the way, you will refresh your account whenever expenses exceed what has been collected. The only expenses that will be fixed are insurance for your surrogate and our service fees, though many legal professionals offer fixed-price options too. 

VARIABLE PROGRAMS

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO CREATE EMBRYOS?

If you do not already have embryos created, you will also need to factor in the expenses of creating embryos using your own or donated eggs. Families using their own eggs should expect to spend $26,000-$35,000. If you will be pursuing surrogacy with donor eggs, you can expect costs to range from $50,000-$80,000.

WHY ARE THE COST RANGES SO LARGE

The largest ranges have to do with how much your gestational surrogate receives in compensation, the state in which they live, and which Growing Generations program you select. 

WHY CHOOSE THE GROWING GENERATIONS SURROGACY PROGRAM?

One of our Growing Generations finance team experts will gladly work with you to review cost estimates you have received from other sources and offer advice and guidance. We can also create a tailor-made budget that fits your desires for the surrogacy process, as well as for different cost scenarios. Growing Generations is dedicated to helping you start your family through surrogacy with a clear understanding of costs.

The Growing Generations surrogacy program helps hundreds of people each year become parents. Our goal is to prepare you for the journey that lies ahead. Knowing and understanding surrogacy costs and creating a budget at the beginning of your process can help reduce stress and delays. We have been providing surrogacy services for more than 25 years and have an expert understanding of the financial process.
