Meet with Circle Surrogacy in Stockholm and talk surrogacy!
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 for intended parents living in the Sweden.
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 in Sweden 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.
How much does surrogacy cost in the USA?
At Circle Surrogacy, we offer two exclusive fixed price program options: our Fixed Cost program and our Journey Protection Guarantee program. Both options have fixed costs that do not change during your journey, so you can plan for costs with no surprises. Circle is the only agency that offers these types of programs. Our Fixed Cost Program and Journey Protection Guarantee are designed to help as many Intended Parents as possible bring home a baby while reducing variable costs.
Fixed Cost Program Surrogacy only: $128,750 Surrogacy plus egg donation: $149,750 (both prices exclude IVF)
Our Fixed Cost Program provides intended parents the security of paying one fixed price a single transfer journey, reducing unexpected expenses and uncertainty of variable costs.
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.
Circle's costs include all agency fees, attorneys’ fees, screening and surrogate fees, and insurance costs. They do not include IVF costs.
3 reasons International Parents should choose a U.S. surrogacy agency for international surrogacy
1. Your child is a U.S. citizen.
Any child born in the United States is a U.S. citizen. Your baby will receive a U.S. birth certificate and is entitled to a U.S. passport for travel purposes (you can usually get one in 24-72 hours from application). Your surrogacy lawyers will do the legal work to establish your parentage (either via a Pre-Birth Order, post-birth order or possibly through a second parent adoption). You will be the sole legal and physical parents under American law. By establishing the rights of parentage in the United States, you can travel home safely and securely. Some countries – such as Spain, Sweden and Germany (amongst others) – accept the U.S Declaration of Parentage. Conversely, a child born with an agency in the Ukraine, for example, is not considered a Ukrainian citizen. This can be challenging because you will need to establish citizenship and/or parentage under your home country prior to leaving the Ukraine, making it difficult to get travel papers or a passport to return to your home country. Your child cannot fly home without a passport.
2. Surrogates are fully screened and get the best medical care.
Agencies such as Circle follow strict guidelines and screening protocols for women who are interested in becoming surrogates. Women must complete a lengthy application, undergo medical and psychological testing, and identify a primary support person for her journey. In fact, Circle only accepts 1-2% of the women who begin the surrogate application into our program.
All of Circle’s surrogates live in the United States, have strong support systems and are financially stable. They have access to the most-advanced medical care, and the world’s top hospitals. Plus, Circle’s surrogacy program is built on a relationship model: surrogates and their intended parents develop a relationship throughout the process. They meet each other and agree to be matched priorto any documents being signed. Their relationship then develops over time, as Circle encourages weekly communication.
Comparatively, women who live internationally and become surrogates for international agencies may get moved away from their homes while they are pregnant, so that they could be closer to a hospital. They are separated from their families, which can be emotionally stressful. The medical care they receive, while cheaper, may not live up the standards of medical care women in the United States receive. It is not uncommon for intended parents to not have much of a relationship with the woman who is carrying their baby; communication can be difficult, and oftentimes the parents aren’t as emotionally part of the journey as they would be in the US.
3. Financial security.
In the U.S., when you embark on a surrogacy journey with most agencies, your money is safe. Circle is a well-established, secure company. The money you send to the agency is secure, held in an IOLTA account (Interest on Lawyer Trust Account). IOLTA accounts are kept only at regulated and approved financial institutions.
