Agency reviews and comments

Response
(2016, International parents) This agency isn't as hands on as American agencies tend to be. The surrogate had to do a lot of the research herself into finding local monitoring clinics, etc. Also, it should be noted that the owner is having legal problems, but this didn't impact our journey at all. The agency is very well-intentioned though, despite the fact they're not always as hands-on as they could be.
(2017, International parents) Canadian Fertility Consultants was professional and efficient. Even when our first match fell through due to failed transfer, we waited for only a few months for a re-match.
(2017, International parents) Nous sommes très satisfaits de l'agence. Le contact passe très bien (mieux en Anglais qu'en Français). Match très rapide et concluant. Peu de communication pendant le parcours mais dés que nous avions besoin d'un conseil ou d'une aide, ils étaient là pour nous écouter. Fort présent également pour notre surrogate. Envois réguliers de gift box aux futurs parents et à la surrogate. L'agence a également organisé une journée « sacred intended parents retreat » à Paris. Nous avons passé une agréable journée en compagnie d'autres futurs parents lgbt avec qui nous gardons de bons contacts.
(2017, International parents) agence réactive en cas de difficultés; support des parents d'intention et des femmes porteuses très intense .
(2017, USA parents) A great deal of our success was due to the hard work and care of Leia Swanberg and the team at Canadian Fertility Consultants. Leia clearly runs the business as a mission driven organization. She cares a great deal about ensuring a positive experience for both the intended parents as well as the surrogates. She cares - she really cares! Our journey wasn't always smooth, but ultimately it ended up successful. We had to alter some of our expectations as well as behaviors to ensure that we were aligned with the agency policies. While not always convenient, in hindsight they made sense and we are happy to have made the effort. A big applause for Leia and her team. We'd recommend them happily.
(2017, USA parents) CFC was great with matching us quickly with an amazing surrogate. They were very friendly and knowledgeable. They however did not help our surrogate understand the process or help her navigate some other issues. They pride themselves on supporting the surrogate but our surrogate did not feel that support when she asked. I also reached out to them on behalf of our surrogate but did not receive the answers we were looking for. We were basically on our own with this journey. Luckily we researched everything and received wonderful help from the fertility clinic. CFC did handle the surrogate reimbursement but was also very bad at returning phone calls about the reimbursements. They often blamed unreturned phone calls on their phone system. CFC definitely has the ability to recruit surrogates and match intended parents which I guess is the ultimate goal of surrogacy.
(2018, International parents) CFC was recommended by a friend who underwent the process before me. It was hard to let go and trust someone from another country, but Leah made me feel very at home and relaxed in this process. Knowing a friend who did it first really helped to calm my nerves. I am so happy I worked with CFC on this journey. Each step of the way they cared for me and my surrogate 'E'.
