Finding a Surrogate in Florida

A gestational carrier, or surrogate, is a woman who agrees to carry a pregnancy for the intended parents. Since opening our doors in 2003, Fertility Source Companies has helped more than 4,500 IPs in the United States and internationally to accomplish healthy, successful childbirths.

Surrogacy Laws in Florida

Surrogacy is legal in the state of Florida, however, according to the law, to establish parentage before birth, the intended parents must be married with at least one parent sharing a genetic relationship with the child. All intended parents who fall outside of this category must complete post-birth adoptions to establish their parental rights.

Florida Surrogate Costs & Fees

In Florida, as with most states, you’ll generally be responsible for paying within the range of $100,000 to $125,000 for total surrogacy costs. This amount covers the $50,000 base surrogacy fee — along with the initial $28,000 agency fee — distributed in monthly installments, beginning with the fetal heartbeat’s confirmation. Intended parents must make these payments as long as the surrogate is pregnant, and the remaining balance is due within 7 days of delivery. In addition, IPs must reimburse the surrogate for any living expenses, including a $350 monthly allowance, an embryo transfer fee, a maternity clothing fee, and other miscellaneous charges.

How Surrogates Are Screened in Florida

Our intended parents’ safety and security are crucial to Fertility Source Companies. We require all Florida surrogate candidates to pass extensive screenings to assess physical and mental health. They’ll also have background checks and psychological evaluations conducted by mental health professionals. Our staff registered nurse (RN) will review candidates’ past pregnancies to identify any complications. Besides evaluating health status, these screenings demonstrate that candidates can complete the entire surrogacy process.

Surrogate Requirements in Florida

We value the health of our surrogates, as they are part of the Fertility Source Companies family. Ensuring their continued optimal well-being also improves the likelihood of successful pregnancy outcomes. We require all Florida candidates to pass strict and thorough surrogate requirements. Based on industry-wide standards, these guidelines are meant to protect surrogates, the children they carry, and the intended parents. Among them are:

  • Being 21-43 years old
  • Having experienced one healthy pregnancy, but no more than five past live births or three Cesarean (C-section) births
  • Being a United States citizen or having the legal right to work in the U.S.
  • Not requiring federal or state assistance
  • Being a non-smoker and not using drugs
  • Possessing sufficient physical and mental health, including a superlative medical history and passing screenings
  • Having a stable home environment
  • Having reliable transportation 
  • Passing a criminal background evaluation

The Surrogacy Process

To qualify as a surrogate with Fertility Source Companies, the first step is applying. You’ll need to provide medical records and have background checks and mental and physical health screenings. Should everything check out, you’ll be accepted into our candidate database. At this point, you’re registered, and you can be matched with potential IPs, via an online meeting. Once a positive match is made, the following steps must be completed. 

  • You’ll have a full physical exam, performed by a fertility specialist chosen by the intended parents.
  • You’ll sign a surrogacy agreement with an attorney.
  • You’ll need to self-inject yourself with a series of hormonal medications to prepare for pregnancy; typically, one daily injection, for about 12 days.
  • You’ll go through the embryo transfer procedure.
  • You’ll submit to having several ultrasounds and blood tests to confirm pregnancy. 
  • You’ll meet with your local obstetrician (OB) for regular pregnancy visits and delivery.

We realize that surrogates and IPs may, understandably, be confused or overwhelmed by the surrogacy process, at least in the beginning. Our team is available to assist you at every step, and many staff members were themselves surrogates. They’re always ready to comfort you with essential, next-level support. We encourage you to find out more about the surrogacy process.

Surrogacy Pay & Compensation in Florida

In Florida, gestational surrogates generally earn about $50,000, encompassing base pay, and all incurred expenses. This payment will be allotted in eight monthly payments, disbursed as long as the surrogate is pregnant, with the balance due within seven days of delivery.
