“Being a surrogate with Circle of Life was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Jeanette was amazing in every way, courteous, dependable, knowledgeable, professional and considerate of any needs I had. I was completely new to the world of surrogacy and Jeanette guided me through step-by-step and was physically by my side during the most critical parts of the process and during the birth via C-Section of the twins. Her support throughout the entire time was invaluable. I will be forever happy with my decision to go with Circle of Life Surrogacy.”

Give the Gift of Life

Surrogate Application
Circle of Life Surrogacy is always on the lookout for a few good women who are willing to literally give the gift of life to families who have longed for a child. We are proud to offer one of the best surrogate compensation packages in the industry, which includes bonuses for experienced surrogates as well as many special perks that other agencies don’t offer.

Surrogacy is a win-win situation for all!

What Does Surrogacy Entail?

Agreeing to become a surrogate means that you will carry and give birth to a child on behalf of an individual or couple who may be facing infertility issues, medical issues, or other circumstances that prevent them from conceiving and carrying a child on their own. If you meet our surrogate guidelines, (more details below), you will be assigned a surrogate coordinator who will give you one-on-one attention and personalized guidance at every step of the surrogacy process.

Our boutique agency strives to make the best matches possible between surrogates and couples in need. When we match you with a couple, you will have the opportunity to meet the couple and approve the match. Once the match is approved, we will provide you with independent legal counsel so that all your rights are protected. When the paperwork is signed, you will undergo In Vitro Fertilization treatment (IVF).

Many surrogates enjoy this journey immensely and develop a deep and long-lasting friendship with their couple. Your surrogate coordinator will be available 24/7 to answer questions, accompany you to appointments, and support you throughout the conception process, pregnancy, and birth. The owner of Circle of Life Surrogacy, Jeanette Passwaters has been a surrogate herself…twice! We all deeply understand this process and are here to support you at every twist and turn.

Your Compensation As a Surrogate

We believe that the best reward a surrogate receives is the joy of helping a family fulfill their dream of parenthood, but the financial compensation is certainly welcomed too! We want to attract the best surrogates possible for our clients, which is why we offer one of the best compensation packages in the industry. Along with a very generous payment for your overall service as a surrogate, we will also provide you with stipends for supplies, clothing, lost wages, holistic care, and even housekeeping. Additionally, covered expenses include all of your medical expenses related to the IVF treatments, pregnancy care, and birth, along with health insurance and life insurance if needed. We even offer nutritional counseling, monthly massages, and psychological support so that your body and the little life inside of you are as healthy and happy as possible.

  • Go back to school or pay off student loans
  • Save money for their children’s future college needs
  • Catch up on retirement savings

What It Takes to Be a Surrogate

More than anything, a surrogate must be a woman full of compassion who takes joy in serving as a surrogate to help others complete their family. We also ask that you and your spouse/partner pass a criminal background check. You will also be given a psychological evaluation and interviewed in your home to confirm that you are in a stable living situation.

Please review our minimum surrogate requirements:

  • Must be between the ages of 21 – 41
  • Must have delivered at least one child without any complications
  • Must have at least one child in your care
  • Must be in a financially stable situation
  • Must have a healthy BMI and no medical conditions that could put the pregnancy at risk
  • Must be willing to abstain from drinking, smoking, and other drug usage
  • Must not have a criminal record

If you meet our minimum surrogacy requirements and are interested in learning more about the process, please fill out our surrogate application or contact us with any questions.
