Transparency From The Start

Northwest Surrogacy Center, LLC knows that creating a family can be financially stressful. We work hard to minimize your surrogacy costs, and we do not have any hidden fees. We strive for transparency about the costs for our intended families.

Two Financial Options

NWSC offers families two options for paying for their surrogacy. Both options will provide the same high level of service to our intended parents and surrogates including competitive match times, individualized support from our team, and all the benefits of working with a large, full-service agency.

The first option is our Essential Program. This program provides a fixed agency fee, but the overall costs vary based on your surrogate’s individual expenses and the medical circumstances that occur throughout the pregnancy.

The second option is our Guarantee Program which gives families the peace of mind of a predictable cost for their surrogacy journey. It provides additional financial protection and assurances over our Essential Program. This option includes a refund of your agency fees and unspent surrogate base compensation if you have at least one embryo transfer and do not have a baby.
