Gay Parenting through Egg Donation
Circle Egg Donation, like Circle Surrogacy, is a leader in providing parenting options for gay couples and individuals. Helping build families for members of the LGBT community has been a core part of our mission since we began in 1995. Circle's President and Founder, John Weltman, is a gay parent through assisted reproduction. He and his husband Cliff have two sons.
We offer egg donation options to intended parents in a warm, supportive environment. The IVF clinics we have established relationships with are held to our high standards on LGBT support issues.
When you choose Circle Egg Donation, you can expect:
- A network of LGBT-friendly fertility clinics

Circle’s legal team ensures that your parental rights are affirmed and safeguarded. Whether you obtain a second-parent adoption, judgment of paternity/maternity, or custody orders, we are here to guide you and find solutions that protect your family. In addition to our years of experience working with same-sex couples, we continue to monitor legal and procedural developments around the world that affect all of our LGBT intended parents pursuing egg donation and surrogacy.
LGBT Community Efforts
We know that having a baby is the first step in your family’s growth. Our joint efforts with non-profit agencies, such as Family Equality Council and Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD), are a reflection of our commitment to both our current and future gay intended parents and their children.
