How Much Do Surrogates Make?If you're exploring the path of surrogacy, you might be surprised at how much a surrogate makes. A first-time surrogate in most states, for example, will make a minimum of $38,000 for a successful pregnancy that carries and delivers a healthy baby. However several other states like California, Nevada, Illinois and Maryland a surrogate will receive $42,000 for a first time successful surrogacy. for That fee doesn't include compensation for lost wages or other expenses to accommodate the surrogate's changing body during the pregnancy.For intended parents, this can be a stressful situation. However, when you think about it, two things are true about surrogacy. First, the joy of bringing a new baby, a new life, into the home of the intended parents outweighs the financial aspects. Especially for those who have been trying to start a family and have not succeeded. Second, the surrogate not only needs to take care of herself during the pregnancy, but she also needs to take care of the baby growing inside of her.
