Surrogacy FAQ’s

Surrogates

Do I have to live in Texas to work with your Agency?

No! The laws used in your Gestational Surrogacy Arrangement are the laws of the state that the Surrogate resides in. Surrogates can live in any state that is Surrogacy friendly, if you’re not sure please email us to ask!

Intended Parents, we will match you in a surrogate-friendly state, depending on your needs for the birth certificate. We work with clients from all around the world, including the UK, Italy, France, Scotland, Ireland, Belgium, Portugal, Spain, the U.A.E., China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, and every state in the United States.

What is my base compensation? What Expenses are reimbursed?

For a New Surrogate, Base compensation is set at $35,000 for a surrogate with Insurance. Without Insurance, you would receive $30,000 and the Parents would pay for a policy for you.

If you are an experienced surrogate, we invite you to specify your own compensation in your profile. Experienced Surrogates typically get $38,000-$45,000 with Insurance for a second time repeat, and more if you have been a surrogate twice or more times before. We are happy to suggest a compensation within the range of current norms.

 

In addition, all of your expenses are paid.

Do you issue 1099 tax forms to your surrogates?

  1. Please ask your tax preparer for tax advice but you will not receive a 1099.

I’ve had my tubes tied, can I still be a surrogate?

Yes! Having your tubes tied does not prevent you from being a surrogate.

Can I pick my OB or midwife? Can I pick my delivery hospital?

Yes. You can keep your usual midwife or hospital. Your delivery preferences are noted in your profile, and we will match according to your preferences. You will also complete a birth plan so we can make sure your Intended Parents understand your wishes.

The only time you might have to be flexible is if there are complications in your pregnancy that require an OB/GYN or hospital delivery for your safety and that of the babies.
