Intended parents often have the need for both a gestational surrogate and an egg donor. In the Gestational Surrogacy with Egg Donation (GSED) program, Circle Surrogacy staff coordinates a surrogacy journey that allows you to work with the IVF clinic of your choice. If you are not already connected with an IVF clinic, Circle staff can make recommendations and provide you with personal introductions. Once established with an IVF clinic, Circle staff helps you to select an egg donor from our network of egg donor agencies and clinics. Once you have selected an egg donor, you are matched with a gestational surrogate that meets your legal, psychological and emotional needs.
