Circle's Egg Donation program and extensive egg donor database helps intended parents who require an egg donor to find their desired donor and begin their journey towards parenthood. Our egg donor database is filled with hundreds of bright young women who are excited to help you achieve your dreams.
Circle actively encourages egg donors of all racial and ethnic backgrounds to apply. After all, the Circle family is incredibly diverse. We work with intended parents from all backgrounds - single men and women, LGBTQ+ and straight intended parents, and domestic and international couples alike. We try to find donors that contribute to this vibrant diversity, so you can find the perfect match.
Since their founding, Circle Surrogacy & Egg Donation has helped bring more than 2,300 babies into this world.
The staff at Circle is passionate about family building, and about 40% of their team members have personal experiences as surrogates, egg donors or parents through surrogacy, IVF or adoption.
“The egg donation service at Circle was the easiest part of our journey and with zero stress. Their database of the incredible women willing to offer the gift of egg donation is plentiful and impressive.”Matt & Rej, Canada
Circle has a thorough egg donor screening process
Egg donors who work with Circle need to meet a variety of medical, psychological, and demographic screening requirements to make sure they’re a healthy reproductive match for your family. Egg donors fill out lengthy questionnaires, and participate in a thorough screening with a social worker prior to be accepted into our program.
Circle offers unlimited egg donor matching
The Circle team does everything in our power to make your egg donation experience seamless and hassle-free. That’s why we offer Unlimited Egg Donor Matching, meaning we’ll keep matching you with new Circle Egg Donors until a live birth is achieved. It may take more (or less!) time than you expect, but working with our team means you’ll eventually find the right donor. It’s just one more thing you don’t have to worry about.
Circle encourages known egg donation
Known egg donation means that we encourage the intended parents and the woman donating eggs to be open with their identity and stay connected with each other - from matching to pregnancy and beyond. Circle encourages known egg donation because it’s important for the child’s healthy sense of identity to at least have access to the other half of their genetics. Some children who are conceived with an egg donor have a natural curiosity about their genetic origins, while other children might not. You won’t know what kind of child you have until they start to grow up and develop their personality. Known egg donation helps leave that door open for possible contact in the future.
