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 have a few options from which you can choose to meet with our team:

  • In-person consultations. You can schedule a consult in-person with our Parent Outreach Team.

How much does surrogacy cost?

Surrogacy costs vary for each individual journey, and depend on a few factors: whether or not you require an egg donor, your location to your clinic and surrogate (and/or egg donor), and the type of program you choose.

Intended parents can expect to pay, depending on what program is chosen, a range of $110,00 -$125,000 for gestational surrogacy and $130,000-$145,000 for gestational surrogacy with egg donation. These surrogacy costs do not include IVF fees.
