Gestational Carrier Compensation & Expenses

At CSED, Inc., we do not believe that every gestational carrier match is the same. Therefore, we understand that gestational carriers' base fees (the amount of money a women is paid to be a gestational carrier for intended parents) can vary. We also understand that some carriers will need to be reimbursed for certain expenses and other carriers will not. Accordingly, we will review your requested base fee and expenses with you to be sure that they are reasonable and fair to both you and the intended parents.

While gestational carrier’s fee and expenses will vary, they generally fall within the ranges set out below. If you are an experienced carrier, i.e., someone who has successfully been a gestational carrier in the past, we encourage you to contact us to discuss your requested fee and expenses.
