Bringing a baby into your family through surrogacy is one of the greatest joys you can experience. Not only will you be having the baby you've dreamed of, but you'll also form a bond with your surrogate mother – and her family– that is like no other. Surrogacy is a safe way to have the family you desire, and Intended parents from Massachusetts have been using surrogacy as a means to grow their families for decades.

Having an understanding of surrogacy laws, the surrogacy process and surrogacy costs will help you make an informed decision to grow your family.

First steps to parenthood through surrogacy

If you live in Massachusetts and you're considering surrogacy, here are a few things to consider as you make your decision.

1. Do your research about surrogacy.

It's important to do your research to ensure that surrogacy is right for you. Surrogacy requires a great deal of trust and honesty from intended parents, surrogates and egg donors – as well as their surrogacy agency.

2. Agency or independent?

When you've decided that surrogacy is how you would like to grow your family, you can either work with an agency, or do an independent surrogacy journey. Understanding the pros and cons of both will help you make your decision.

FAQ's


As you consider parenthood, you may have questions along the way. Don't worry. With 20+ years of experience, we've helped intended parents navigate surrogacy and their journeys to parenthood, and have answered almost every question out there!
What is the cost of surrogacy?
The cost for gestational surrogacy ranges depending upon the program chosen (we have a variety of programs to choose from) and whether a donor is needed. The ranges include: all agency fees, attorneys’ fees, screening and surrogate fees, and insurance costs. They do not include IVF costs. To find out the costs of our various programs, please click here.
How does the matching process work?

Once we have accepted a surrogate applicant into our program, our PC, surrogate and legal teams determine possible matching options based on a variety of factors, including: the state she lives in, whether she has insurance, and the matching preferences from both intended parents and surrogates.

We will send the redacted profile of the intended parents (with no identifying information) to the surrogate. If she expresses interest, we will send her profile to the intended parents, similarly leaving out all identifying information. Once the surrogate and the prospective parents express a mutual interest, we will put them in touch by telephone, Skype or email so they can begin to get to know each other.

After communicating with each other, the surrogate and the prospective parents meet in person at their mutual convenience: at the surrogate’s home, the intended parents’ home, or some place in between. If the surrogate has children and/or a partner or spouse, the intended parents meet them as well.

An IVF physician medically screens them after a match is made. If for any reason the surrogate doesn’t pass the medical screening (which is rare), Circle Surrogacy presents a new match free of charge.

What does the legal process involve before and after the birth?
Circle’s legal team coordinates with local attorneys to ensure you are properly matched with a surrogate in a state where you can accomplish the necessary legal work to finalize your parental rights. Once you are matched, we negotiate contracts on your behalf. Your surrogate and your egg donor (if needed) will have independent counsel. Depending on a variety of factors, your surrogacy legal work may include a pre-birth order, a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity, a judgment of paternity, a custody orders, or an adoption.
