Circle Surrogacy & Egg Donation was founded on the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to be a parent. To this day, that belief is at the core of everything we do. For 25 years, we’ve helped straight and LGBTQ+ couples and singles fulfill their dreams of parenthood by helping bring more than 2,000 babies into this world…and counting! We are the most successful surrogacy agency with a 99.3% success rate for parents bringing home a baby. Circle Surrogacy is the only agency that offers two truly fixed price options designed to help as many Intended Parents as possible while reducing variable costs. Circle is an agency comprised of social workers and lawyers, accountants and intake associates, and program managers and coordinators; but, more importantly, we’re an agency made up of parents, surrogates and egg donors, who are passionate about helping people build their families. Together, we make parenthood possible.
