Agency reviews and comments

Response
Serena Lugo was instrumental in making our journey a success!
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
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)
