Colorado has always been a great place for surrogates and intended parents. Prospective surrogates will find a thriving community of surrogates who are eager to meet each other and share their experiences. Circle Surrogacy has worked with surrogates from Colorado for decades and, in the past, we've organized local meetups for women in the Colorado area.
