Our Journey Protection Guarantee offers Intended Parents:

  • An all-inclusive cost that covers unlimited transfers and any complications that may arise during your journey
  • 100% refund of our agency fee if you have no embryos remaining and do not bring home a baby
  • No surprise costs or invoices

Guaranteed to 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 our Journey Protection Guarantee.

With the Journey Protection Guarantee, Program Intended Parents will receive 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 run out of embryos and do not have a baby, Circle will refund 100% of our agency fee 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.
