Understanding surrogacy costs as a gay dad-to-be.

One of the first questions Circle Surrogacy gets from LGBTQ+ intended parents is, "How much does surrogacy cost?" The surrogacy program you choose, and your preferences for your surrogate, egg donor and journey can affect your overall surrogacy costs.

 Breaking down surrogacy and egg donation costs.

Breaking down surrogacy and egg donation costs.

Surrogacy and egg donation costs can be broken down into four categories:

• Professional fees
• Surrogate and egg donor fees and expenses
• Insurance expenses
• IVF expenses

Circle Surrogacy offers surrogacy programs that provide fixed costs for all professional fees, surrogate and egg donor fees and insurance expenses. While IVF expenses are variable, Circle Surrogacy works with many clinics who may offer a similar fixed cost option for IVF services.

What do surrogacy costs cover?

Professional fees.

Professional fees cover the following during your surrogacy journey:
• Screening & Matching of your surrogate and egg donor (including rematches)
• Coordination of your journey with a dedicated team consisting of a Program Manager & Coordinator, Attorney & Accountant
• Social Worker support
• Trust Account management
• Legal Work

What does the agency fee cover?

Surrogate & egg donor fees.

Circle will include an estimate of fees paid to surrogates and egg donors, as well as third party costs.
• Surrogate & egg donor reimbursements
• Travel expenses
• Local monitoring expenses
• Legal expenses for surrogate & egg donor contracts, and for intended parents' parentage rights
• Contingencies: fees and expenses that you cannot plan for, such as bedrest, c-sections, etc.
