Here at Surrogate Parenting Services (SPS), we have been helping families bring their dreams to life for over 30 years, and we are proud to be one of the best surrogacy agencies in California. 

We are passionate about making each client’s experience as comfortable, fulfilling, and joyful as possible. This is reflected in the exceptional support we give our surrogates and intended parents, our personalized matching process, and our compensation packages. 

Over the years, we have found that surrogates who have the most successful and rewarding experiences are primarily inspired by altruistic motivations. That said, there is a financial component to surrogacy in the U.S., and it can provide a significant contribution towards achieving a financial goalsuch as putting a down payment on a new home, starting a college fund, paying off student loans, and more.

SPS offers one of the most competitive benefits packages in California. And we are excited to announce that starting this month, we’re expanding our benefits package! It’s very important to us that each surrogate in our program is taken care of, and these new benefits provide even more support to surrogates on their journey. 

Here’s what you can expect as a surrogate with SPS.

How does SPS determine compensation?

Compensation depends on the surrogate mother’s level of experience and the details of her surrogacy journey. 

In addition to the base fee, the surrogate mother may receive a monthly allowance that covers unaccountable expenses related to the pregnancy. There are additional compensation amounts in the event that she has a multiple pregnancy (twins, etc.), c-section, health insurance that is approved by a third party for coverage of the surrogacy, and more. 

When do surrogates get paid?

Here at SPS, you will receive a signing bonus once contracts are signed and legal clearance is issued. Then, you will begin to receive the monthly uncountable allowance to cover expenses. The base compensation begins after the second heartbeat confirmation. 

Our new compensation package 

As of April 2023, our base compensation will be $65,000 for first-time surrogates, and $75,000 for surrogates who have had at least one or more journeys. 

Our surrogates will also receive $13,000 in guaranteed extras, which includes:

  • A signing bonus
  • Our exclusive pamper package to treat yourself to something special throughout the pregnancy
  • A custom health and wellness program with a physical therapist
  • A maternity clothing allowance
  • A house cleaning allowance once you are pregnant
  • And more
