Costs of Surrogacy with a Family Member
There are certain parts of the surrogacy process you will not need to pay for if you have already identified your surrogate. Your surrogacy cost using a family member will decrease the overall amount you will spend on the process. Having an identified surrogate will also help to cut down on the timeline of the process as you won’t have to wait to find your perfect match.
Even though you’ve identified your surrogate, you will still have parts of the process to pay for that is necessary to a positive experience. Things like background checks and screenings are ultimately required to ensure everyone is prepared for the surrogacy process.
What You Don’t Pay For

Understanding Altruistic Surrogacy
Sometimes when working with a family member, you might expect an altruistic surrogacy process. This means that the surrogate would not receive a base compensation, offering their service to you altruistically. It also makes the surrogacy cost of using a family member seem more affordable than finding a surrogate.
While this may feel like a great option to some parents looking to save money in the process, including a small base compensation for your family member may be something to consider.
This can help avoid any issues or animosity throughout the process. The surrogacy cost using a family member can still be significantly lower even if you do offer a small compensation. Talk with your family member about what they might expect financially from the process.
