Meet Jen Rachman: Tri-State representative and parent through surrogacy

Hello! I’m Jen Rachman, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Circle’s Outreach Associate. I’m here to be a resource and a support for Intended Parents (IPs) from the Tri-State Area. Getting to play a small part in so many IPs' experiences on their road to parenthood is humbling, so much so, that after my own surrogacy journey I felt compelled to join Circle and help others in my situation.

I was diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer at age 26, at a time when I was focusing on my professional career and moving in with my boyfriend. Beating cancer was difficult but not as tough as accepting my new normal as a menopausal and infertile 20-something.

Several years post-cancer my husband and I began exploring our family building options and decided that surrogacy was the best path for us. Our Circle journey was truly a wonderful, life changing experience and I’m forever grateful for our surrogate and everyone who helped us have our son.

I’m so appreciative that Circle has given me the opportunity to draw on my professional and personal experience to help others understand surrogacy as a family building option. I never could have predicted that this is where I would have ended up - a cancer survivor, a mother through surrogacy, a parent to the most fantastic little boy, and an employee at an agency so dedicated to those striving to become parents.


As you consider parenthood through surrogacy, you may have questions. We’ve been helping parents navigate their journeys for over two decades and have answered almost every question out there! Below is a small sample of questions we have been asked.
What is the cost of surrogacy?
The cost for gestational surrogacy ranges depending upon the program chosen (we have a variety of programs to choose from) and whether a donor is needed. The ranges include: all agency fees, attorneys’ fees, screening and surrogate fees, and insurance costs. They do not include IVF costs. To find out the costs of our various programs, please click here.
What is the matching process?
The matching process is the first stage of your journey and begins with an initial call or Skype with your Program Coordination team to choose an IVF clinic and an egg donor (if needed). The next step will be to find an appropriate match with a gestational surrogate who has completed our comprehensive screening process. The average time frame for completing a match with a donor, clinic and surrogate is between 1-4 months and is based on your preferences and legal matching requirements.
What does the legal process involve before and after the birth?
Circle’s legal team coordinates with local attorneys to ensure you are properly matched with a surrogate in a state where you can accomplish the necessary legal work to finalize your parental rights. Once you are matched, we negotiate contracts on your behalf. Your surrogate and your egg donor (if needed) will have independent counsel. Depending on a variety of factors, your surrogacy legal work may include a pre-birth order, a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity, a judgment of paternity, a custody orders, or an adoption.
