You’ve come to the right place. We’re here to help!
We want our surrogates to know and understand the compensation from the beginning. Therefore, transparency is our priority, with no hidden loopholes or additional requirements thrown in along the way.
We offer a generous base compensation up to $60,000, with additional benefits and bonuses. As part of our campaign for Surrogacy Awareness month, sign-up and complete our application process in March and receive an additional $2,000 sign-on bonus when you get approved!

Join a community of empowering women that believe in giving the gift of parenthood.
We will spend some time getting to know you and making sure we have answered all your questions. Then, we will have a few questions of our own.
We will gather information through questionnaires, an interview, and your medical history, including your pregnancy and delivery records.
Also, at this time, we will want to know what your preferences are for matching with intended parents.
You will undergo some basic laboratory testing and a psychological assessment. We also will review your medical insurance to determine which, if any, aspects of the surrogacy are covered. To prevent unforeseen expenses for you, we may need to change or expand your health insurance coverage.
Once we know you well, you will take the helm to choose potential intended parents. First, we will provide you with a few profiles of intended parents, based on your preferences from Step One, to select. You will be paired with the intended parents when all parties are on board.
You will begin building your connection with your intended parents during your Match Meeting. We will introduce you to each other so you can start building your relationship.
Then, the fertility clinic will review all of your medical records plus your lab results from Step One so that you can obtain medical clearance for surrogacy. You will need to travel to the fertility clinic for your medical evaluation. The trip typically takes one to two days, depending on proximity.
To make sure you know and understand all of your rights as a surrogate, you will meet with an experienced surrogacy attorney in your area, referred to you by Fairfax Surrogacy. The Gestational Carrier Agreement will cover the legal aspects of your journey as a surrogate, and the attorney will represent your interests as you read and understand the contract.
It is time to prepare your body to carry its precious cargo. First, you will start the fertility clinic’s medication protocol to prepare for the embryo transfer and pregnancy and begin lab work and ultrasounds for that process. Then, you will make a two- to three-day trip to the intended parents’ clinic for the embryo transfer. The follow-up to confirm and monitor the pregnancy may occur either at a local clinic or at the intended parents’ clinic. It depends on what all parties have decided.
Your prenatal checkups will take place with your provider. Your case manager will work with you closely to support you and provide any resources you need. If you haven’t been already, this is the time to lean on family for support and potentially join the virtual surrogacy support group. Everyone aims for the surrogate to be healthy, happy, and calm as we anticipate the new arrival.
All of the hopes and dreams have pointed toward this special moment. Finally, the baby arrives, and you will be witness to the magic of your intended parents holding their baby for the first time. While this will be the end of the journey, it is only the beginning in so many more ways.
