A surrogate mother is a gestational carrier who is willing to help a couple ("intended parents") whose female partner is unable to carry a pregnancy for medical reasons. A surrogate mother may also help a same-sex couple who needs a giving person to help them carry their baby. The surrogate mother is not the biological mother of the baby she carries. We limit our number of surrogacy cases to a minimum so each one of our surrogate mothers can have the maximum amount of support, time, and attention from our staff.

Surrogate mother's compensation is typically $36,800 and up for first time surrogates. Experienced surrogates' compensation will be higher. The compensation is provided at different stages of the pregnancy.

We provide an exceptional high level of personal service to both the intended parents and surrogates. If you have an existing surrogate, or need a surrogate, we provide coordinating services from coordinating psychological screening, medical screening, legal services, and support services throughout the surrogate's pregnancy. We also provide in-person translating services for intended parents who only speak Spanish or Mandarin.

Please note:
Options in Conception provides Matching and Coordinating Services. We do not act as medical, legal, or psychological professionals. All necessary professional services are referred to independent reputable professionals experienced in Third Party Reproduction specialty. Any information provided are based on our general knowledge and experience in the field. We do not provide traditional surrogacy service, which means the surrogate mother is also the biological mother of the baby.
