At Circle Surrogacy, we help intended parents from all over the world realize their dreams of having a family with our step-by-step guidance and support.
All prospective intended parents – whether you’re a couple or a single individual, LGBTQ+, domestic or international – begin with a complimentary consultation that lasts approximately 2-3 hours. This helps us tailor information to meet your specific needs.
Circle Surrogacy & Egg Donation offers complimentary consultations for intended parents in Norway where you'll meet with an attorney and a process consultant. During the consultation, you’ll learn about the process of matching with a gestational carrier and/or egg donor, legal implications, insurance, surrogacy costs and financing, and much more.
If you wish to proceed with Circle after your complimentary consultation, you'll sign an Agreement for Services. Once the Agreement is executed, you'll be assigned a Journey Support Team, who will guide you through every phase of the process.
The matching process begins with an initial call or Skype with your Journey Support Team to choose an IVF clinic and an egg donor (if needed). The next step is to find an appropriate match with a gestational surrogate who's completed our comprehensive screening process.
Once the surrogate has completed the screening process and has been accepted into our program, our matching and legal teams determine possible matching options based on a variety of factors, including: the state she lives in, whether she has insurance, and the matching preferences from both intended parents and surrogates.
We will send the redacted profile of the intended parents (with no identifying information) to the surrogate. If she expresses interest, we will send her profile to the intended parents, similarly leaving out all identifying information. Once the surrogate and the prospective parents express a mutual interest, we will put them in touch by telephone, Skype or email so they can begin to get to know each other.
After communicating with each other, the surrogate and the prospective parents meet in person at their mutual convenience: at the surrogate’s home, the intended parents’ home, or some place in between. If the surrogate has children and/or a partner or spouse, the intended parents meet them as well.
An IVF physician medically screens them after a match is made. If for any reason the surrogate doesn’t pass the medical screening (which is rare), Circle Surrogacy presents a new match free of charge.
During the 6th-7th week of pregnancy you'll experience the excitement of baby's first heartbeat(s)! During this exciting time your Program Coordinator will be the primary support person for you and your surrogate. He/she will also be working to ensure that you, your surrogate, the hospital, and others are prepared to welcome your child into the world and that you’re immediately acknowledged as the parent(s) of the child from the moment of birth.
The most anticipated stage of the journey that may feel like an end, but is simply a new beginning for you. We work out all the legalities, while you snuggle and love your new baby. We have a an in-house legal department that has decades of experience in helping intended parents and their baby, or babies, return home safely with parentage rights.
Well, I guess we have all kinds of feelings. All of them positive. It has been very emotional. It is a major milestone in our lives and we feel both excited, joyful and relieved. We are so grateful for what Circle and the team have helped us to achieve. Fantastic!!! The boys are beautiful. Very similar but not identical. Douglas is a little bit bigger than Ian but both of them are of good size. Ian was first out so I guess he is the big brother. – Patrik
Thank you for helping us to be parents to this wonderful little boy! It has been a wonderful journey! We love you all! You have, with your skills, professionalism, and kind hearts, made this the best journey any parent can have while waiting for their child! - Anne and Magne
We have a daughter. Because of all of you, we have a family. You’ve guided us to our dream and we are forever grateful. You have warmed our hearts, warmed our souls, and with your lovely blanket gift, warmed our precious baby girl, Pearl Anne. Thank you, with love. - Brian and Matt
We were in good hands with you.Thank you so much for your help on this journey. Our son is awesome. Top on our list of thanks is our surrogate, followed not far behind by you and the rest of the Circle team that helped make this happen. I had both kids on my lap the other day just hanging out and experienced a new kind of 'happy' - down to the core happy. - Greg
