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. At Circle, we're available for a consultation on YOUR schedule.

Although we prefer to meet in person with intended parents for our consultations, everyone’s health and safety is our primary focus; therefore, we are following the U.S. government's guidelines of social distancing. For the near future, we are offering free complimentary consultations with our team over Skype or Zoom (mornings, afternoons, evenings, and weekends) for intended parents living in Australia.

Reserve your spot to meet with us from the following days and times:

January 1 - January 31: Mornings and Afternoon time slots available every day

  • January 20, 2021 - Evening
  • January 25, 2021 - Evening

Our private consultations are free, and allow us to hear your story and what brought you to surrogacy. We'll also discuss an overview of our program and agency protocols, matching with a surrogate mother, surrogacy costs, insurance and much more. You'll meet with an Assisted Reproductive Technology Law attorney and one of our Parent Process Consultants. You'll also have the opportunity to ask any questions in a private setting.

To request a consultation, please fill out the registration form below. If these time frames above don't work for your schedule, please select "Times frames listed don't work for me. I need help accommodating my schedule" on the form and we'll be happy to accommodate your schedule.

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 through surrogacy in the USA. 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.

Why international parents come to experience surrogacy in the United States.

International parents, especially parents from the Australia and New Zealand, prefer the United States due to its favorable legal, societal and medical conditions, and 46 of 50 U.S. states permit commercial surrogacy. For over two decades, we've worked with intended parents from over 73 countries, including the Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Singapore, United Kingdom, Norway, and Ireland to name a few.

5 things that set Circle apart from other surrogacy agencies.

For intended parents comparing surrogacy agencies, here are 5 things that set Circle Surrogacy apart from other agencies.

1. We're a full-service agency.
Being "full-service" means we have all parties associated with a surrogacy journey – social workers, case managers, accountants and lawyers – right at Circle Surrogacy. Having all of these services in-house and available to parents eliminates the need to go outside of the agency for services.

2. We have personal experience.
40% of Circle Surrogacy's staff are experienced parents, surrogates or egg donors through the program, as well as parents through IVF and adoption.

3. We encourage relationships between parents, surrogates and egg donors.
By forming a strong relationship, intended parents have the opportunity to get to know the wonderful surrogate who’s selflessly devoting her time, body and energy to make their dream a reality. Many surrogates and intended parents truly feel like a family by the end of the process and we genuinely believe fostering this relationship is the best way to bring a baby into the world. If parents require an egg donor, we always recommend known egg donation (though ultimately it's up to the parents and donor).

4. We practice a high-quality process for screening our surrogates and donors.
Circle Surrogacy only accepts a very small percentage of candidates who apply. All prospective surrogate and egg donor candidates must undergo a rigorous screening process which includes:
• An in-depth interview with licensed social workers
• A psychological exam (egg donor candidates complete the exam after being chosen by the intended parents)
• Criminal and financial background checks
• Medical records reviewed by a consulting physician.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires infectious disease screenings, which are completed once parents have been matched and are ready to begin their journey.

5. We offer a Fixed Price surrogacy program to help control costs.
We are always looking for ways to help make surrogacy more affordable for our intended parents. Our Fixed Cost Program provides Intended Parents the security of paying one fixed price for a single transfer journey and our Journey Protection Guarantee offers Intended Parents unlimited transfers for a fixed price, plus the Circle Promise: we’ll refund 100% of our agency fee plus unused third party funds if you do not bring home a baby.
