Finding the Right Match
Being a Surrogate means different things to different women. You may wish to establish a close and lasting relationship with the parents and the child, or you may just be happy to see a baby coming to the world.
During our matching process, we allow you to select the parents you would like to work with and set your expectations. Contracts are signed only after both sides agree on the specific conditions for the relationship.
Surrogate Mother Compensation
As a Babytree Surrogate, you are eligible to receive a base compensation of $35,000 to $60,000 depending on your location, experience, and how many embryos you are willing to carry. Other out-of-pocket expenses will be reimbursed or covered and include, but not limited to, all needed travels, childcare expenses, medical insurance, required medications and other bonus.
What About No Termination Clauses?
We understand and respect your desire to stand by your belief. Some of our surrogates will not have an abortion under any circumstances. We are happy to pair you with parents that share your belief and will be supportive in the most difficult times. Please be aware that the majority of parents seeking a surrogate wish to make this kind of decision regarding their child on their own, so matching no-termination parents can take more time, over 180 days in some instances.
The Gestational Surrogacy
A Gestational surrogate will carry a baby that is not biologically related to her. The embryo may be a result of successful IVF using the sperm and eggs from the potential parents or donors. At Babytree Surrogacy, you have the choice to decide which kind of services you are willing to offer to the parents.
