Here at Surrogate Parenting Services, the health, comfort, and happiness of our surrogates is paramount to us. From the moment you start your journey with SPS, we’ll be by your side through every step of the process. (Learn how to become a surrogate with SPS here.)

One of the most important ways we support our surrogates is through a generous compensation package, which is one of the most competitive packages in California. 

Earlier this year, we expanded our benefits package. As of July 1, 2023, our base compensation is $65,000 for first-time surrogates, and $75,000 for surrogates who have had at least one or more journeys. 

Our new package also includes a custom health and wellness program with a physical therapist. Learn more about the SPS Wellness Package below!

The SPS Wellness Package

We strive to make every surrogate’s journey as healthy and rewarding as possible. And our SPS Wellness Package helps ensure our surrogates are supported both during their journey and postpartum.  

Here’s what the package includes:

  • Monthly video calls during pregnancy through 12 weeks postpartum 
  • Customized and evidenced-based programs for pelvic floor and full body mobility and strength that are safe during pregnancy 
  • Access to the Vibrant Coast PT app for custom workout straight to your phone
  • Birth preparation education
  • Education and exercise to help prevent prolapse and diastasis recti
  • Education on how to safely return to activity postpartum

Dr. Jessica Chellsen Supporting Surrogates with the SPS Wellness PackageThe program is run by Dr. Jessica Chellsen, PT, DPT, CSCS. Jessica is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, and she specializes in pelvic floor rehabilitation and working with pregnant and postpartum women of all fitness levels. 

Jessica is based in San Luis Obispo, CA and she owns Vibrant Coast Physical Therapy and Wellness, where she offers in-person treatment and telehealth services. 

During the monthly video calls, Jessica answers questions surrogates may have about pregnancy and body changes, offers guidance on any adjustments they can make to address pain, discusses safety with exercise during pregnancy and postpartum, teaches surrogates about pelvic floor health, and assists with birth preparation and healing postpartum. 

All the workouts she creates are customized to the surrogate’s fitness level and tailored in length to what they can accommodate in their lifestyle.

We’re thrilled to be able to offer the SPS Wellness Program to our surrogates. For more information about the program or how to become a surrogate mother, please contact us!
