Be a Surrogate in Massachusetts

Surrogacy in Massachusetts


If you live in Massachusetts and you're considering becoming a surrogate mother, you’re in luck. The Bay State is one of the best states in the nation for both surrogates and intended parents.

Circle's Home State

We're nearby! Circle Surrogacy's main office is in downtown Boston. All of our attorneys are admitted to practice law in Massachusetts. Since 1995, we've helped numerous intended parents and surrogates achieve successful surrogacies in Massachusetts.

Favorable Law

Massachusetts statutes don’t directly address surrogacy agreements. But a number of cases from the state's highest court have treated surrogacy favorably. Finalizing arrangements for surrogacy in Massachusetts is typically done by pre-birth order, which allows the surrogate and intended parent complete all necessary paperwork before the birth even occurs. Some intended parents will require a post-birth second-parent or stepparent adoption. In either case, surrogates sign all necessary documents and generally won't ever need to appear in court.

Medical Coverage and Care

Massachusetts has some of the best hospitals in the world, including two of U.S. News & World Report's Top-Ranked Hospitals for Gynecology. Massachusetts also mandates maternity coverage for insurance plans. This means insurance companies have to cover maternity costs regardless of how you became pregnant, even if you are acting as a surrogate. Higher surrogate compensation is typically paid to surrogates who have insurance coverage.

Benefits for Surrogates in Massachusetts

The first payment is the $350 Expedited Screening Bonus. You are eligible to receive $350 if we receive all required paperwork (including previous Prenatal and Delivery records), medical pre-approval AND you and your primary support person complete your Social Work Screening within 3 weeks of submitting your application. In order to receive this bonus, you must match with intended parents in our program. Of note, this amount is deducted from your base fee, but will be deposited shortly after matching, prior to receiving any other surrogacy payments. Then you receive a $500 advance after you complete your medical screening. Please note, these two payments are deducted from your base fee.
