The Gestational Surrogacy using Intended Parent Eggs program is designed for intended parents who have the ability to provide all of the needed biology to create embryos but require the assistance of a gestational surrogate. Circle staff assists you in the selection of an IVF center if you are not already established with a medical team. You are then matched with a gestational surrogate that meets your legal, psychological and emotional needs.
