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 do a "personality check" to 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 to meet with you on YOUR schedule. We have a few options from which you can choose. These include in-person consultations or video chat consultations.
The process of becoming a parent through surrogacy in North Carolina
The surrogacy process can be complex at times, with many milestones that lead to the final outcome: delivery day!
It's important to understand and prepare for the steps in the surrogacy process, whether you are an intended parent or surrogate mother.
