Intended parents exploring surrogacy to grow their families and women considering becoming surrogate mothers can use this guide to gather information about embarking on an exciting, life-changing journey. Circle Surrogacy is one of the most experienced surrogacy agencies in the U.S., having supported intended parents and surrogate mothers for more than 27 years. We can help people considering surrogacy in Cheyenne, Casper, Laramie, or any other Wyoming community navigate the process, whether as intended parents or surrogates.
Wyoming surrogacy law neither permits nor prohibits gestational surrogacy contracts, which effectively means you can pursue surrogacy in the state. Partnering with an experienced surrogacy agency is the best way to grow your family through surrogacy in Wyoming.
Couples and individuals from a variety of backgrounds, ages, and sexual orientations use surrogacy to build their families with each unique journey.
Intended parents in Wyoming we work with may be:
• Heterosexual couples who have struggled with infertility
• Intended mothers who are unable to carry a child
• Intended parents who have a genetic issue or health condition they don't want to pass onto the child
• LGBTQ+ intended parents who want to have a genetic link to their baby
For people considering surrogacy in Wyoming, this page is an excellent resource to learn more about what the state's surrogacy process involves, how to become parents or a surrogate mother, and what surrogacy costs.
Understanding and preparing for the series of milestones that culminate on delivery day is an essential part of your surrogacy journey. This is true for both intended parents and surrogate mothers. Some people decide to go through the surrogacy process independently—without the assistance of a surrogacy agency—which is an option available to anyone.
That said, working with an agency such as Circle Surrogacy, which has over 27 years of experience, helps you navigate the milestones and events throughout your journey. This is especially true in a state such as Wyoming, where surrogacy law is somewhat ambiguous.
Now that you've chosen to grow your family through surrogacy (hooray!), and you've selected an agency with whom you'd like to meet, what's the next step? It's important to schedule a consultation with the agencies you're considering so you can share your story, ask questions, and see if the agency team is a good fit for your journey.
If you're financially and emotionally ready to begin the surrogacy process within 12 months, Circle Surrogacy offers complimentary consultations for intended parents. During these private meetings, intended parents learn about the surrogacy process, the cost of surrogacy, and how to find and match with a surrogate mother.
Your consultation can be either in person or via video. We understand that some people seeking more information about surrogacy aren't ready for a full consultation. If that's your situation, you can schedule a short pre-consultation, which lasts about 30 minutes and is a great way to ask questions and learn more.
The cost of surrogacy is an important consideration for intended parents. Our comprehensive cost sheets outline the surrogacy costs you should expect in a typical surrogacy journey.
We can help you understand the surrogacy programs available, the cost of surrogacy, and how much you can expect to pay for egg donation. Circle Surrogacy is transparent in its surrogacy options, costs, and what you can expect along your journey.

Matching with a surrogate mother is one of the most exciting parts of the surrogacy process for intended parents. Circle works with gestational surrogates from Wyoming, as well as surrounding states. If you're looking for a surrogate mother in Wyoming (or elsewhere in the country), we can help you find your surrogate mother match.
Whether you have the help of an agency or you're pursuing an independent surrogacy journey, thinking about what you want in your gestational carrier is an important part of the process.
If you choose to work with Circle Surrogacy, we ask intended parents to fill out a profile that helps us get to know you better and find appropriate surrogate matches.
The information we ask for in the profile includes your:
One of the best ways to get a good sense of who you are as people is by sharing photos of yourself and your loved ones. We want to find the best possible surrogate matches, so don't hesitate to share any information you believe would help us accomplish that goal.
The answers you provide in your profile—as well as your geographic location and views on termination—are used by your Matching Specialist to find the best possible surrogate match. That's why it's important to be honest when thinking about how you answer these questions.
We also ask about some of your other preferences to help us match you with your gestational carrier, including:
You can use these criteria as guidelines for what you should look for in a suitable match if you choose to pursue surrogacy without the assistance of an agency.
What is important to consider when looking for a surrogate mother in Wyoming? These 3 factors should be kept in mind before making a choice:
Appropriate legal fit: Our legal department always ensures potential gestational carriers meet both general and state-specific legal criteria before surrogate profiles are presented to intended parents.
Personality fit and surrogacy expectations: We want both surrogates and intended parents to have a comfortable relationship throughout the journey. This is why our Matching Specialists review the list of safe matches provided by the legal team to ensure good personality fits.
Expectations surrounding termination and selective reduction: In our experience, intended parents often prefer to make the choice regarding termination. It's important that surrogates and intended parents share similar views about the termination of a pregnancy if a situation develops in which a reduction or termination is considered.
Who are egg donors? A fertile woman who wants to help another individual or couple conceive a child (with or without the help of a surrogate) can be an egg donor. Egg donation is one option for intended parents who have concerns about infertility to grow their families.
To find an egg donor in Wyoming, Circle Surrogacy guides you through the entire egg donation process and helps you coordinate with an IVF clinic of your choice. An egg donor database is where most intended parents begin their search for an egg donor. You can search for egg donors using specific criteria in most databases. Circle's egg donor database is easy to use and easy to navigate.

After listening to previous gestational carriers share their thoughts with social workers or during exit interviews, we created the Circle Surrogate Promise to ensure our surrogates have the most successful and rewarding journey possible. Those conversations led us to improve our offerings to our gestational carriers.
The Circle Surrogate Promise is a program exclusive to Circle Surrogates; no other agency can offer the same level of security and support.
Circle Surrogacy promises:
Financial compensation is a part of carrying a baby for someone. This compensation is often called a "surrogate base compensation" or "surrogate payment." We've relied on the experience of previous surrogates to create a compensation and benefits program for surrogates and their families. It provides security, benefits, and protection that are virtually unsurpassed.
Our new Surrogate Pay & Family Protection Program provides the following benefits:
If you are still considering other surrogacy agencies because of their compensation, we'd appreciate having the opportunity to talk with you about those offers before you make a decision. We can match them. We promise you'll have the best surrogacy experience with us.
You can calculate your base compensation with our payment calculator to see how much you could earn as a surrogate in Wyoming.
Payments Before You Are Pregnant
Signing payments and payments for your medical screening are examples of compensation provided by Circle early in the surrogacy process. These payments are in addition to your base compensation.
Payments During and After Surrogacy
Circle compensates surrogates for their necessities during and after pregnancy, including maternity clothing, housekeeping, pumping and shipping breast milk, and more. These payments are in addition to your base compensation.
Surrogates receive other non-monetary benefits—in addition to financial compensation—that are priceless in ensuring they’re protected and have a smooth journey. These benefits include legal counsel, life insurance, and more.
Circle Surrogacy earned its reputation as a worldwide leader in the surrogacy field by having dedicated teams support surrogates every step of the way—from the day they begin exploring surrogacy to their meetings with the prospective parents and throughout their entire pregnancies to birth.
You'll have support navigating the screening process, and we help ensure you're matched with the perfect intended parent or parents. We also guide you through the legal and social work aspects of surrogate parenting.
Our passion for our work is authentic because it's rooted in the experiences many of us had as surrogates ourselves. Some of us have completed 3 surrogate journeys, and we provide hands-on guidance informed by those experiences. Besides that, you'll have access to world-class expertise in the various legal, social, and medical aspects of your surrogacy process. If you have questions, we'll have the answers.
When you need a lawyer to review legal contracts, we'll recommend an attorney in your area with whom we've worked previously and who is thoroughly knowledgeable about Assisted Reproductive Technology law.

Circle Surrogacy developed a thorough matching process to ensure you share an incredible, intimate journey with prospective parents. That matching process begins with using personality profiles that surrogates and intended parents both review. You can ask questions and generally get a sense of each other's personalities. We can help schedule an initial video call between you and the intended parents to ensure both of you feel completely comfortable with the match. Only then will we move forward with the surrogacy agreement.
Circle works with single parents, LGBTQ+ and heterosexual couples, domestic and international couples, and others. We’re confident you’ll be able to find a great match.
