Be a Surrogate in Connecticut

Connecticut Surrogacy

With favorable surrogacy law, excellent medical care and IVF centers, and proximity to New York and Boston, Connecticut is a great place for surrogates and intended parents alike.

Some of the best surrogacy law in the United States

Arguably the most favorable surrogacy case of recent years was decided in Connecticut in 2011. Raftopol v. Ramey is a Connecticut Supreme Court decision that allows pre-birth orders for non-biological parents. It means that when intended parents of any background (heterosexual couples, same-sex couples, single individuals) work with Connecticut surrogates, the legal process is simple and easy.

The case clarified Connecticut's surrogacy statute, and makes the legal process simple for Connecticut surrogates and their intended parents. Circle Surrogacy is proud to have helped bring about this clarification in the law. Our attorneys filed an amicus brief which helped the court come to its decision.

Location, location, location
Circle's surrogates come from across the United States and our intended parents come from around the world. But surrogates from Connecticut are in a geographically favorable position. Many of Circle's intended parents live in New York, Boston or in Europe, and as a result choose to work with IVF clinics in Connecticut or the greater New York City area. While this is not always the case, Connecticut surrogates tend to have less need for traveling to IVF clinic appointments.

Benefits for Surrogates in Connecticut

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.
