Circle is proud to work with women from Oregon who want to become surrogate mothers and help others achieve their dreams of parenthood. See how much surrogates make in Oregon, surrogate mother requirements and how to apply to become a surrogate.
With its convenient West Coast location, Oregon is a great state for surrogacy, and for surrogate mothers!
Circle works with many parents who are patients at West Coast clinics (mainly California and Nevada). Surrogates who are matched with intended parents at a West Coast clinic would have a shorter distance to travel for their medical screening and transfer.
Plus, many intended parents desire West Coast surrogates because of their proximity to IVF clinics, which means shorter match times for our surrogates.
Oregon statutes do not directly address surrogacy agreements, but courts have treated surrogacy favorably. Establishing parentage for surrogacy in Oregon is a seamless process for everyone involved and is typically done by way of a pre-birth order, which allows the surrogate and intended parents to complete all necessary paperwork with their respective independent counsel and obtain the parentage order before the birth occurs. In general, the parties do not ever need to appear in court.
When women apply to become a surrogate mother in Oregon, here are some requirements they must meet:

- Is a citizen, legal resident or legal immigrant of the United States. If a surrogate is a legal resident or legal immigrant of the United States, the surrogate must be able to provide documentation that is valid for at least 2 years.
