How much do surrogates make in Florida?
When you become a Florida surrogate, of course, you are assisting a couple or an individual to achieve something so many people dream about, and that is having a child. But we also understand that as a surrogate, you are making a considerable personal sacrifice and are consenting to demands on your time as well as undergoing medical procedures. With pregnancy, there are physical as well as emotional changes, and we believe that you should be fairly compensated.
As a surrogate in Florida, you can expect to make at least $50,000.
In addition to the basic pay, a variety of factors will govern exactly how much surrogates get paid. Because each surrogacy experience is different, this can influence the final amount of the compensation package. Circumstances such as a surrogate carrying more than one baby or who have more than one embryo transfer will affect the amount.
You’ll be pleased to know that surrogates receive a maternity clothing allowance plus travel and childcare reimbursement, as well as lost wages reimbursement if that should become necessary.
Complete information on all of these factors about how much do surrogates make in Florida can be found on our surrogate pay and benefits page here.

The Best Surrogate Agency in Florida
We can say, without any hesitation whatsoever, that we are absolutely the best surrogate agency in Florida. We offer the highest level of support, a compensation package that is competitive and fair, and we provide clear communication and transparency in our services for our Florida surrogates and the intended parents.
We don’t just claim to be the best, we back this up with facts:
- When you become a surrogate with us, no expenses come out of your pocket, ever. All of your screening, medical, insurance, legal, loss of wages, and travel expenses are completely and fully paid.
- Our Florida surrogates are offered a sign-on bonus to compensate you for undergoing medical screening. We will compensate you again once you are medically cleared and qualified as a surrogate.
- The majority of other surrogacy agencies work with multiple physicians and clinics. In Florida, we work with only one fertility specialist, Dr Selick, and her team at Santa Monica Fertility Miami. Dr. Selick has over 25 years of experience and is highly respected by her colleagues and patients alike. By working with Dr. Selick, you can be screened and immediately qualified and matched with one of Santa Monica Fertility’s intended parents.
- We will also work with the OB/Gyn of your choosing near your home throughout the duration of your surrogacy experience.
- You will never be without support. As one of our Florida surrogates, you will have access by phone to our expert surrogacy team 24 hours a day, every day.
But you don’t have to take our word for it! Here’s what A. had to say about her surrogate experience with us:
“I can not express enough how truly incredible this agency is. As a first-time surrogate, it was incredibly overwhelming starting out, and I had spoken with several agencies. But Premium really stood out to me, as the advisor I spoke with made my decision to move forward with them so easy. You can tell their advisors really truly care and the majority have been surrogates themselves so it’s a very personal and understanding experience. I would 110% recommend Premium if you are considering surrogacy!! I would use them over and over again and would refer them personally without hesitation. This journey so far has been everything I dreamt of and more thanks to this incredible team of people!”
Or C’s experience with us:
“I researched many clinics to become a Surrogate and I fell in love with this agency. Dr. Jain answers all your questions and helps you out with any issues. The nurses are very nice and explain everything in detail. It’s great when you can call and they can give answers to questions that may even come up later in the process. Julie, Lanesha, Gaby, and Patricia are just some of the lovely ladies that walk you through everything. I even had some issues with the shots but the nurses walked me through and made sure I had every available resource. I am now pregnant with twins and can’t wait to do it again.”
