Surrogacy in Colorado

Surrogacy in Colorado

With an active surrogate community, a central location, and favorable surrogacy law, Colorado is a great place to become a surrogate.

A Great Place for Surrogacy

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. The state's location between the coasts also makes travel relatively easy to IVF clinics across the country. 

Simple Legal Procedures

In general, surrogacy in Colorado doesn't require surrogate to appear in court. The legal procedures surrounding surrogacy in Colorado are simple and quick -- in most cases, Colorado surrogates can sign a voluntary acknowledgment at the hospital. Pre-birth and post-birth orders are possible. Your attorneys will handle all required paperwork.

Benefits for Surrogate Mothers

The first payment is the $500 Expedited Screening Bonus. You are eligible to receive $500 if we receive all required paperwork (including previous Prenatal and Delivery records), medical pre-approval AND you and your primary support person complete your Social Work Screening within 3 weeks of submitting your application. In order to receive this bonus, you must match with intended parents in our program. Of note, this amount is deducted from your base fee, but will be deposited shortly after matching, prior to receiving any other surrogacy payments. Then you receive a $500 advance after you complete your medical screening. Please note, these two payments are deducted from your base fee.
