The process of becoming a parent through surrogacy in Ohio
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. The first step of course is deciding if you want to undergo your surrogacy journey independently, or with the help of a surrogacy agency. With over two decades of experience, Circle Surrogacy and Egg Donation recommends working with an agency to ensure you have the proper support to ensure you have as smooth and safe of a journey as possible.
