Meet with Circle Surrogacy virtually!

When researching surrogacy agencies, an important step is to consult with the agencies you're considering. It's a great way to share your story, get your questions answered and see if the agency team is a good fit for your journey. Consultations are designed to educate intended parents on the surrogacy process, surrogacy costs, and how to find and match with a surrogate mother.

Although we prefer to meet in-person with intended parents for our consultations, everyone’s health and safety is our primary focus. Instead of in-person meetings in the near future, we are offering free complimentary consultations with our team over Skype or Zoom.


Circle Surrogacy will be holding virtual private surrogacy consultations for intended parents during the following times of day:

  • Morning hours - Fridays
  • Afternoon hours - Monday and Wednesdays
  • Evening hours - Tuesdays and Thursdays
  • Weekend - Saturday's


Our complimentary private virtual surrogacy consultations entail:

  • Meeting with an Assisted Reproductive Technology Law attorney
  • Meeting with a process consultant
  • Overview of our program and agency protocols, surrogacy costs, insurance, and much more
  • Opportunity to ask any questions in a private setting

Schedule a Consultation

How do I know if I'm ready for a surrogacy agency consultation?

Our complimentary consultations are for those who are emotionally and financially ready to begin a surrogacy journey within the next 12 months. We'll use this time to not only discuss the surrogacy process with Circle, but also talk about your story and what brought you to surrogacy.

A consultation is not a commitment, it's a way for you to learn more about becoming a parent. If you're not ready for a full consultation, but would like to obtain more information you can schedule a 15-minute chat with a member of our team.
