All prospective parents—whether you are a couple or a single individual, LGBTQ+,domestic or international—begin with a free consultation that lasts approximately 2-3 hours. After you request a consultation, we’ll ask you to fill out a basic parenting questionnaire, whether you’re interested in surrogacy and/or egg donation. This will assist us in tailoring information to meet your specific needs, since everyone’s situation is different. If you decide to join our program, this form will also be helpful during the matching process when connecting you with your surrogate and/or donor. All information provided in this parenting questionnaire is kept strictly private and confidential.

What a Consultation Covers

During consultations, prospective parents typically meet with a process consultant and an attorney to review our programs and our agency protocols. The consultation team addresses the process of matching with an egg donor and/or a surrogate, legal implications, insurance, surrogacy costs, and financing (where applicable). We give plenty of time at the end of the consultation for any questions that you might have or review any areas that may still be unclear to you. We will also ask that you share your story with our team. We like to hear why you want children and how you came to surrogacy, what your support system looks like, whether friends or family know you’re interested in surrogacy, how you will prepare for your child once your surrogate becomes pregnant, etc. This is a very important part of the consultation.

We Are Here For You

We hope that the consultation helps you understand the process and what is involved. We understand that this can be an overwhelming process. We also understand that there are many questions and emotions involved. After all, it is one of the biggest decisions that you will make in your life! Many of our staff members at Circle are parents through surrogacy and/or egg donation. We are happy to share our experiences with you so you hear firsthand what others go through to help answer any questions you might have.

Proceeding with Circle Surrogacy after your Consultation

After your consultation, if you would like to proceed with Circle, you will sign an Agreement for Services and send in the appropriate funds. Once the agreement is signed and funds have arrived, you will be assigned a Program Coordination Team, who will guide you through each phase of your journey.
