In some instances, intended parents come to us and have a family member or friend – or have found a match through surrogacy communities – who will be their gestational surrogate. You may hear this referred to as independent surrogacy or private surrogacy.
Some intended parents will pursue surrogacy without an agency, however even if you have found a surrogate on your own, you may still desire to have an agency manage your surrogacy journey (vs doing an independent journey). There are a few different levels of support available with this program, speak with us

For parents that choose to do and independent surrogacy journey (also called an "indy journey" or "indy surrogacy"), they will not only find their own surrogate, but also manage all aspects of the journey themselves (legal, local monitoring, accounting, etc). Our Surrogacy with Your Own Surrogate Program allows intended parents the freedom of finding their own surrogate match (and saving those funds) with the option to have professional support. When pursuing an independent journey, you may find that your clinic requires some level of support from a surrogacy agency – and that's where Circle can help.
