When a woman makes the decision to become a surrogate mother, she is often fueled by a deep sense of duty and fulfillment from bringing joy to another family. She chooses to aid another in their journey to parenthood because she wants to enrich the lives of those around her and provide the gift of life. However, due to the invasive and time-consuming nature of pregnancy and birth, a surrogate mother requires monetary compensation, provided by the intended parents of the child she will be carrying.
The Cost of Surrogacy in Oregon
On average, a surrogate mother in Oregon will make up to $50,000 per surrogacy experience, including health insurance and legal fees.
There are several factors that determine the true cost for each unique surrogacy, ranging from the use of an egg donor to the individual surrogate’s expenses. Should an unexpected medical condition arise, the surrogate would require the intended parents to cover the costs of any additional doctor’s visits or procedures.
There are many options available to those who are interested in building their family with a surrogate mother. Arranging a payment plan or borrowing from a lender is often necessary for those looking to grow their family through surrogacy. There are even grants that may aid you in covering the costs.
