Finding your surrogate match can be an exciting part of your journey to parenthood. Circle works with many surrogate mothers from Washington, as well as most of the surrounding states. Additionally, our new office in the San Francisco area makes it even easier for surrogates and intended parents to connect on the West Coast.
How to Start
Taking the time to think about what's important to you in a gestational carrier and journey will make it easier to find a surrogate on your own (if you're doing an independent journey) or to determine if your surrogacy agency has presented you with a good match.
Circle has an impressive track record for matching surrogates and intended parents - almost all develop strong bonds that last well beyond delivery.
How Circle Can Help
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 us match you with an ideal surrogate.
This profile is filled with information about you, your relationship (if you have partner), 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 us a good sense of who you are as people.
In addition to your profile, there are certain criteria that will be used to match you with your gestational carrier. Intended parent matching criteria include preferences on:
- Level of communication with their surrogate during the journey
- Location of the surrogate mother
- Number of embryos to transfer
- Views on selective reduction and termination
If you are doing an independent surrogacy journey, you can use the points above as guidelines when looking for a suitable match.
