How are Intended Parents and Surrogates Matched?

One of the most exciting parts of the surrogacy process is the matching of intended parents and their surrogate. At Circle Surrogacy, the perfect match depends on a few key factors. And once that match is in place, we encourage the development of strong relationships between all parties. After all, you’re about to embark on one of life’s most monumental journeys!

At Circle, our Matching Team – which includes lawyers – will work to find the best possible match for all parties. Unlike other agencies, intended parents and surrogates do not see multiple profiles from which they can choose. Instead, matches are hand-selected based on preferences of both parties, plus additional criteria.

Surrogate matching criteria includes her preferences on:

• Level of communication during the journey
• Location of the intended parents (in the U.S. or international)
• Number of embryos to transfer
• Views on selective reduction and termination

Intended Parent matching criteria includes their preferences on:

Surrogate MatchOur matching team focuses on 3 factors when determining a good match between intended parents and surrogates.

1. Appropriate Legal Fit.

2. Personality Fit and Surrogacy Expectations.

3. Expectations Surrounding Termination and Selective Reduction.

Our matching team has been matching surrogates and intended parents for over 20 years. Because we take into consideration 3 criteria, we present a perfect match almost every time. We carefully screen each individual surrogate to create the best matches possible. To learn more about our screening process, check out How Surrogates are Screened for Surrogacy.
