Surrogacy Costs: Journey Protection Guarantee Program

Our Journey Protection Guarantee Program offers parents something other agencies can't: fixed costs for their surrogacy journey – no matter what happens – plus a refund of 100% of our agency expenses and unused third party funds if they are not successful in having a baby with us.

Journey Protection Guarantee Program Surrogacy Costs

Our Journey Protection Guarantee takes our Fixed Cost Surrogacy Program and provides one fixed price for unlimited embryo transfers and any complications, plus the Circle Promise: we'll refund 100% of our agency fee and any unused third party funds if Intended Parents do not bring home a baby.

Journey Protection Guarantee for Surrogacy: $137,250
(plus IVF costs)

Journey Protection Guarantee for Surrogacy & Egg Donation: $158,250
(plus IVF costs)

The Journey Protection Program helps keep surrogacy costs affordable.

The Journey Protection Guarantee offers parents the most security and confidence for their surrogacy journey. Surrogacy costs can be expensive, and if intended parents hit a roadblock during their journey – a failed transfer or a miscarriage – they will be covered financially under the Journey Protection Guarantee.

With the Journey Protection Guarantee, Intended Parents will receive all of the benefits of the Fixed Cost Program – fixed prices on all Professional Fees, Gestational Carrier (surrogate) and Egg Donor Fees and Insurance Expenses – plus they will not incur any additional fees throughout their journey no matter how many transfers or complications arise.

The Journey Protection Guarantee Program also includes the Circle Promise: if you do not have success after 5 embryo transfers, Circle will refund 100% of our agency fee and any unused third party funds to you.

When Intended Parents know how much their surrogacy is going to cost prior to beginning their journey, they can have peace of mind financially, and focus on what's important: having a baby.

Our goal is to help as many intended parents as possible bring home a baby. Our surrogacy programs are designed to make that happen with as little uncertainty for parents as possible.

What are surrogacy costs for International Intended Parents?

Circle Surrogacy is one of the few – if not the only – surrogacy agency who does not have higher surrogacy costs for international intended parents.
