Agency reviews and comments

Serena Lugo was instrumental in making our journey a success!
At the beginning of the journey, we were a bit concerned that WWS would be less professional and maybe less organized than larger agencies. We chose WWS because we liked the people we talked to and we felt comfortable around them. We knew that the women working at WWS would be trusted and appreciated by our surrogate as well. Throughout our journey, everybody working at WWS was extremely helpful and responsive. WWS found us an amazing surrogate. We feel that the money spent to get their help and support was worth every dollar. We also liked the fact that most employees are women who had their own experience with surrogacy and/or parenthood.
Overall we had a great experience with World Wide Surrogacy, the start of the journey was smooth and they were very helpful with all of our calls and emails. It was once the journey was well under way that communication started to falter. Information was either not shared with us or it seemed that employees at World Wide were not speaking with each other.
Very satisfied with process from beginning to birth and post birth. Everyone has been helpful along this journey
Worldwide Surrogacy was just perfect! Everybody there was attentive, responsive and kind to us since the first prospective meeting. Victoria Ferrara is the best in her field! She did everything along with everyone in the agency to make our journey easier, especially for us: we are international parents from Brazil. Her team is very talented and helping people. We felt like home when travelling overseas and passing by. About expenses and paperwork, they were always honest, clear and explained every detail. Very trustful! All paperwork and court orders were done properly and efficiently. Victoria did a nice job in Court! We left the hospital with the Birth of Certificate (Two days latter!). The agency even prepared the delivery hospital staff to accommodate us the best as possible. Best experience ever.
Worldwide was wonderful and it was wonderful to have them join us in our journey. They are even okay with weird questions as we did not know exactly what we were getting into. They matched us with a great surrogate.
The staff at Worldwide Surrogacy well suited to support intended parents on this journey. I found them to be professional, available, thoughtful and supportive throughout the process I very strongly recommend them to others.
Worldwide Surrogacy provides excellent service. They are knowledgeable, compassionate and supportive - and they are EFFECTIVE. They provided viable candidates within a week of signing and successfully matched me within 6 - 8 weeks signing. I strongly recommend the agency to others on this journey.
I had a great experience with my surrogacy agency. Great group of people . Wonderful staff. Fertility agency also great. My attorney was fantastic. My gestational surrogate was also well matched and extremely caring. I am so thankful and grateful for my 5 year old boy/girl twins. They areally my world.I love them so much!
Agency was excellent for me. I just was expecting better knowledge on paper work for international parents (apostille)
