We understand that each surrogate is different, and our benefits packages are designed to be customizable and flexible. Use our form below to calculate your estimated payment based your status and location.
Although the monetary benefits of being a surrogate mother are significant enough to be life-changing, the emotional and psychological benefits are truly transformative. To know that you're blessing intended parents with the most precious gift ever – another human life, their human life, their baby – is more powerful than anything else you could ever imagine doing.
Working with Circle means support and benefits at every step of your journey. These additional benefits are added to your base fee after you're pregnant.
Benefits beyond your compensation come from working with an agency who has supported the needs of surrogates for over two decades. We have experienced gestational carriers on staff and at your disposal for questions, advice and so much more.
You will be connected with experienced surrogates on our staff from your first moment of communication.
Honoring and connecting surrogates across the country to share their stories and make new friends.
A private and safe online space for surrogates to connect and express feelings, experiences and reciprocate support.
Your intended parents cover any necessary travel expenses to your IVF clinic for the screening and transfer, including lost wages or childcare coverage.
Your base fee is paid monthly in nine installments beginning with the confirmation of heartbeat, which occurs around six weeks gestation. However, you will receive compensation in the time leading up to that for transfers as well as the medical screening and signing your contract.
*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.
