We were founded by a gay man who aspired to have his own family, and the strategic programs and partnerships we have in place are designed to make surrogacy for gay parents possible.Become a parent
Circle Surrogacy's accomplished legal team helps confirm that your parental rights are affirmed and safeguarded. Whether you obtain a second-parent adoption, judgment of paternity/maternity or custody orders, we're here to help you become a parent and find solutions that protect your family.
What's included in our program:
All prospective intended parents – whether you’re a couple or a single individual, LGBTQ+, domestic or international – begin with a complimentary consultation that lasts approximately 2-3 hours. This helps us tailor information to meet your specific needs.
If you wish to proceed with Circle Surrogacy after your complimentary consultation, you'll sign an Agreement for Services. Once the Agreement is executed, you'll be assigned a Journey Support Team, who will guide you through every phase of the process, whether your journey entails surrogacy for gay men or gay women.
The matching process begins with an initial call or Skype with your Journey Support Team to choose an IVF clinic and an egg donor (if needed). The next step is to find an appropriate match with a gestational surrogate who's completed our comprehensive screening process.
Since our inception over 20 years ago, we've been partnering with various LGBTQ+ organizations, including the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center, Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD), Family Equality Council, Men Having Babies, Inc. and The Association des Familles Homoparentales.See All Organizations
