*These values are our best estimate of the compensation you will receive during your surrogacy journey. We do not guarantee that these numbers are definite since prices are subject to change and might not be within our control. It is also possible that you will negotiate the compensation considered herein directly with your matched intended parents through the direct legal contracting phase.

**Gestational surrogate might already have insurance, but it is possible she does not have any maternity coverage. Intended parents will be required to purchase a supplemental insurance policy that is approved by The Stork's Nest. Additional back up plans are available when there is uncertainty as to whether the insurer will pay. These prices can range from $1,500 to $60,000.

***IVF charges are not considered in this fee worksheet and will vary with each fertility clinic. Gestational Surrogate will not be required to pay for any medical procedures associated with the gestational surrogacy arrangement. Intended parents will be responsible for any medical costs.
