What is “flat-rate pay”, and why is it better?

Unlike line-item compensation programs, flat-rate pay programs is straightforward and less time-consuming especially no need to deal with all the paperwork.

Here’s how:

  • On average, surrogates will be paid $1,000-$5,000 more per journey with a flat-rate model than they would be through a line-item package.
  • Line item-based benefit packages are cumbersome and time consuming requiring you keeping track and submitting receipts and paperwork for reimbursement. We want you to have more time on things you love, so we simply got rid of it.
Are there any additional incentives if I choose Magic Journeys?

Yes! You can earn up to $4,000 in incentives before you’re even pregnant. Ask your admission specialist how you can earn the following:

  • Up to $1,000 screening incentive
  • Up to $1,500 contract signing incentive
  • Up to $1,500 medication start incentive
What does surrogacy pay for services like childcare, housekeeping, and bed rest?

Yes. Most agencies that use Flat-Rate Models don’t cover services like childcare and bed rest, but Magic Journeys does! We value our surrogates, and recognize their effort throughout the journey. So, we not only pay you more, but we also cover services caused by the pregnancy such as childcare, housekeeping, and bed rest.

How much does surrogacy pay for maternity clothes?

Magic Journeys offers $1,000 allowance for surrogate mothers to purchase maternity clothing. We’d love to see our surrogate mothers enjoy their fashion and look fabulous during pregnancy.

How much do surrogates get paid for monthly expenses?

Besides the pay at each milestone, Magic Journeys surrogate mothers receive extra $500/month starting when you pass the psychological screening all the way to the delivery. Yes, that is right. We pay you more up front, and we pay you extra to cover living expenses. All because we truly care about you, and want the best for you.

How much does being a surrogate mother pay in the event of complications?

Another reason to choose Magic Journeys. We understand the concern about the unpredictable future, that’s why we offer great medical insurance during the pregnancy which will take care of most of the complications if any of them occurs. We just want you to be happy and stress-free during your pregnancy!
