Finding your surrogate match is an exciting time in your journey to parenthood. Circle works with many surrogate mothers from Florida, as well as most of the surrounding states. Additionally, Circle's main office is in Boston, and we have a strong representation on the East Coast, making it even easier for surrogates and intended parents to connect.
Determining what you're looking for in a gestational carrier and the relationship you prefer with your surrogate, in addition to honestly assessing your expectations for your journey, are all important as you begin your search for a surrogate match. Thinking about these factors in advance will make finding a surrogate easier on your own (if you are making an independent journey) or help you decide if your surrogacy agency has recommended a good match.
If you are using an agency, expressing your views honestly about these issues is important because your Program Coordination team uses these answers, your geographic location, and your views on termination to find you the best match.
We ask intended parents to fill out a profile that helps us get to know them better and find appropriate surrogate matches.
The information we ask for in the profile includes your:
- Relationship (if you have a partner)
- Hobbies and activities
- Plans for parenthood
- Reasons for pursuing surrogacy
We also ask for photos of yourself and your loved ones, in addition to photos that provide a sense of who you are as people.
In addition to your profile, there are certain criteria on which you will be matched with your gestational carrier.
Intended parent matching criteria include preferences on:
- Level of communication with your surrogate during the journey
- Location of the surrogate mother
- Number of embryos to transfer
- Views on selective reduction and termination
You can also use these guidelines if you plan on pursuing your surrogacy journey independently.
