The surrogate screening process is an important step in determining the strongest, healthiest and most successful surrogate mothers to be matched with intended parents.
Circle Surrogacy facilitates a full screening of their surrogates prior to matching with intended parents. This means that each and every surrogate that is ready to match has been fully vetted in our 3-step screening process. We do this because our intended parents' security – and the safety of their future baby – is our number one priority.
Circle Surrogacy's best-in-class surrogate screening process means that intended parents will be matched with a surrogate only when we've determined she is not only a good surrogate mother candidate for surrogacy, but a surrogate mother candidate who meets Circle Surrogacy's highest standards.
This thorough screening process can result in a little bit of a waiting time for matching with a surrogate for parents, but we believe a best-in-class surrogate is worth the wait.
What is the impact on intended parents if an agency doesn't fully screen surrogates?
When an agency does not fully screen a surrogate before she is matched with intended parents, it can cause stress and uncertainty for the parents. For example, intended parents could have spent time getting to know their surrogate and forming an emotional connection, only to learn later that she did not pass the psychological evaluation and is not a good candidate to be a surrogate. Then they are back to square one with matching.
