Agency reviews and comments

Response
(2009, International parents) they were fantastic. The only issue is the costs, they are too high and should be lowered to have more people access to this incredible journey.
(2009, USA parents) Fertility Miracles was one of five agencies that we interviewed after having some very negative experiences with both very large and very small agencies. FM was recommended by our lawyer (who we trusted), who had nothing but positive feedback for them as an agency. From our initial conversations, we really felt that FM took the time to understand our personalities and how we'd interact with a surrogate. She paired us perfectly with a surrogate that shared our desired interaction level and the surrogacy aspects went very, very smoothly. FM was always quick to answer questions and handle aspects of the relationship that fell more on the facilitation side. I feel that they always represented both sides of the transaction with fairness and compassion. Our boys are now 2+ in age and we have an incredibly strong relationshp with both our surrogate, who visits us twice annually, and our agency. Nothing but positive feedback for Fertility Miracles and would recommend them to anyone else starting this process.
(2010, USA parents) They have been very helpful and supportive. I needed the human approach and I had it since day one. They were caring, understanding, they were listening. The connection was fantastic. The other agencies made us feel like we were dollar bills entering their agency. Only a business that take advantage of people that can not have children naturally.
(2011, International parents) Our surrogacy journey was very traumatic as we experienced a miscarriage and, sadly, the death of one of our twins but throughout all of these difficulties our Surrogacy Agency was totally committed and supportive. Despite us being on the other side of the world and in different time zones, our Surrogacy Agency was always available to us and we had total confidence in them. We relied on them completely to guide us through the various steps of the surrogacy and they worked extremely hard to help us finally achieve our dream of becoming parents.
(2011, International parents) The Surrogacy agency I chose was Fertility Miracles and this was a great choice as I had a great relationship with my surrogate and that is obviously so important. They not only provided an excellent surrogate but the overall service was 100%
(2011, USA parents) Karen Roeb of Fertility Miracles does an excellent job.
(2011, USA parents) Karen and the whole staff at Fertility Miracles were just amazing. While our entire journey had ups and downs, I can honestly say that once we found FM, it was all up from there. From the very beginning, they were professional, organized, and moved at a nice pace that was quite reassuring to us. The lawyer and fertility specialist to whom we were referred were of the same quiality, as well. They really made us feel comfortable that they knew what they were doing and we were going to have a baby...or babies in our case. I cannot overstate how perfectly wonderful Karen and the whole staff took care of us.
(2011, USA parents) Karen was extremely knowledgeable and supportive throughout the cycle and pregnancy. She knows her stuff!
(2011, USA parents) The support we received from the agency was invaluable. They provided us with guidance that was both logistical and emotional. Karen Roeb was "a miracle" just as the name suggests. We could not have done this without her.
(2011, USA parents) We actually changed our agency from a previous not satisfactory one to Fertility Miracles. We can't believe there will be any one else who is doing better than Fertility Miracles. They cared everything about the boy and helped to give us a perfect boy! Through this surrogacy journey, we become good friends. We are sharing the happiness of everything of the boy with our friends. Actually, we are trying our second surrogacy through Fertility Miracles. This time, we want a girl!!
(2012, International parents) They were absolutely great to our surrogate mother and to us. And what is very, very important they seemed to be there for us almost every time.
(2012, USA parents) Fertility Miracles was incredible. Words can't express how amazing they are all around. I have two amazing daughters and I owe it all to them. They truly are the best out there. I know as I first used a different agency and the experience was horrible, a complete opposite to Fertility Miracles.
(2013, International parents) They have been fully supportive during all the process. SInce I had some problems with donor candidates, I had the impression that the number of donors could be sometimes not adequate to the number of intended parents...
(2013, International parents) They were great, the only aspect which was a little bit under their standards is the legal aspect, they used an external consulent (Milena O'Hara) which is terrible in her job, she doesn't know enything and sometime she even tell us wrong things.
(2013, International parents) Une merveilleuse petite fille, que demander de plus?
(2014, International parents) The positive point was the speed of the process and the fact that contracts were signed only once we had found a match with a surrogate and an egg donor. We felt that the agency was however not helpful when we started facing difficulties with our surrogate - it appeared that the psychological screening had been conducted several years before the contract. We also did not receive useful assistance from the agency when we faced signigicant medical costs (half a million USD) as our babies had to stay several weeks in neonatalogy care (NICU).
(2015, International parents) My entire journey was smooth, happy, fast and safe. My little boy arrived safely last year. It is lucky to choose fertility miracles, Elena was very helpful through my journey and responded quickly for most of questions. And they do really helped to obtain my boy's US passport. They matched my surro mom very quickly, and I have good relationship with her right now .
(2018, International parents) Our agency was more than amazing! Through this long journy, even in the tough moments, they, and our contact person. Hilary, were there' assisting in every question, thought, request and etc. We are highly reccomend on them and now, that our next journey will be with them!
(2019, International parents) Karen and Elena at Fertility Miracles were a wealth of knowledge and information before we signed or paid anything. In fact at first they didn't have what we were looking for, yet they still guided us and recommended other external services for search of egg donors. They eventually found us our lovely surrogate who was / is a dream of a human being. She and her family (husband, kids, mom, aunts, and even cousins) made us feel so welcome. What our surrogate has done for us you can't put a price on. Today we're enjoying our little one's one month and two days of life and his calm and cool demeanor I couldn't thank our surrogate enough for nurturing him during those 39 weeks in her belly. The case manager at Fertility Miracles was amazing. Kept in touch regularly and updated us on the status of everything. Thank you Karen and your team for such wonderful experience. We cannot wait to begin planning for baby # 2! Love to all, and good luck to all of those mommy and daddies to be.
