Circle is proud to work with women from Connecticut! 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.
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.
