Finding your surrogate match is an exciting time in your journey to parenthood. Circle works with many surrogate mothers from Texas, as well as most of the surrounding states. Additionally, we have a strong representation in the south and mid-west, making it even easier for surrogates and intended parents to connect.
It’s hard to imagine what it will be like finding the right woman to carry your baby(ies). In many cases, intended parents aren’t quite sure what they should look for in a gestational carrier.
The first steps in finding a surrogate mother match are to determine what you’re looking for in a surrogate, your relationship with your surrogate, and your expectations for your journey.
Thinking about what’s important to you in your gestational carrier and journey will make it easier to find a surrogate on your own (if you’re making an independent journey) or to determine if your surrogacy agency has presented you with a good match.
We’ll help find your surrogate mother match.
You’ll be asked to fill out an intended parent profile that not only allows us to get to know you better but also helps our Matching Team find your surrogate match.
This profile is filled with information about you, your relationship (if you are coupled), your family, your hobbies, your plans for parenthood, and what brought you to surrogacy. We’ll ask that you also share photos of yourself, your loved ones, and anything else that gives a good sense of who you are as people.
In addition to your profile, there are specific criteria on which you will be matched with your gestational carrier. Intended parent matching criteria includes your preferences on:
- How much communication you want to have with your surrogate during the journey
- How far away your surrogate mother lives
- How many embryos you want to transfer
- Whether you’re ok with selective reduction and termination, if necessary
If you are doing an independent surrogacy journey, the above guidelines can be useful to consider when looking for a suitable match.
