Agency reviews and comments

Response
(2016, USA parents) Megan and Stephanie were very friendly and happy to offer any advice, help. They helped connect us with a couple of potential surrogates without even signing a contract. From what I eventually learned this is extremely rare. Most agencies ask for a retainer up front before letting you have access to the surrogates. When our first surrogate didnt work out, Megan connected us with others reassuring us that this was not a process we would be rushed through. From beginning to end, this was a phenomenal experience. Their professionalism, warmth, concern and willingness to go above and beyond floored us all along. They were supportive, on top of all our questions including legal paperwork. They supported our surrogate who is just terrific since we were in another time zone and on another coast, gave us regular updates on important Ultrasounds etc. We were grateful for their support on both ends. When came time for the delivery, they were again impressive. Every detail was taken care of, every question asked and answered before we even thought about it. What really knocked our socks off was after our twins were born and our son had to stay in the ICU for a few days. Megan stayed, cared for our daughter while we were in the ICU. She had everything taken care of from baby accessories and clothes through car seats, lent us her car. She was our substitute mom through the process and we feel blessed for having her. To anyone who is considering surrogacy - I would urge them to not look any further. Surro connections is your final stop. They are passionate, empathetic, love what they do and it shows in everything they do. This will be the most important choice you can make. Pick them and worry no more.
(2017, International parents) Megan and her team at SurroConnections were amazing. We are expats who decided to go back to the US for our journey and did a tremendous amount of research on what agencies and clinics were available for our international situation. From the moment we met on Skype, we were confident we had the right agency. Not only did SurroConnections help us with traditional agency services, but also the most important part of finding a good and reliable surrogate, quickly. The team was professional and helped us to achieve our dream in less than 12 months. We would have never thought it was possible given our prior experiences. We would highly recommend SurroConnections to any family, from anywhere, looking to surrogacy in the US.
(2018, USA parents) Surroconnections was great in getting us matched with an amazing surrogate in a very timely manner. Communication was very frequent and quick to respond! Genuine and caring staff!
(2018, USA parents) We have two children, both through working with SurroConnections. We had two separate journeys, two years apart. We also recommended them to close friends and they now have a child from working with SurroConnections. We don't plan on having more children, but we would certainly recommend this company to anyone interested in using a gestational carrier. They helped us with every step of the process (twice).
A very good little agency with high human qualities.
As I look at my son sleeping peacefully, I realize that I'm now fully standing on the fun side of this process... That simply wouldn't be possible without Surro Connections and all of their hard work. I can only now fully appreciate how multifaceted this process truly is. You are going to want an agency behind you that is actively invested in the success of your journey-- I can say without a trace of doubt that Surro Connections will provide you with the peace of mind and clarity of thought necessary to stay sane and organized during a process that will often test your nerves and patience. I could go on and on about their business and the amazing staff and owner, but put simply, they took what seemed to me like the impossible when I started researching surrogacy as an option to start a family, and made it a reality for me and my partner. They handled everything flawlessly from start to finish and allowed me and my partner to focus on what was truly important... preparing to become dads. I cannot thank them enough.
Helpful, professional, warm.
Megan Hall is the best assistance you can wish for. As international IPs we did not really know about the process of surrogacy and we're quite nervous. But everything went so smooth and uncomplicated. Megan answered to our Emails within 24 hours,we were emailed the results and pictures of the (ultrasound) Screening within a few hours after the surrogate's appointment at the doctors. The agency was a big help getting the paperwork done. Megan even got us a package full of stuff we would need for the first days with our lovely Baby so we did not even have to think about shopping. She even went to Hospital with us when our Baby was born. All we had to do was changing diapers and give all our love to our Baby:-) If ever we think about having another Baby we would not hesitate a single moment to ask Megan's agency for help again. If you're working with Surro Connections you're in the best hands. We are happy and thankful every day
Our experience with Surro Connection was flawless. Megan and Heather are highly professional and made us both feel we were their sole client. More so, their response rate - any time and day of the week - is just impressive. And so vital, being thousands of miles away every step of the way. You feel taken care of, and having been surrogates themselves, they know your worries before you do. We would no doubt use Surro Connection again and we give them our best recommendations.
Surro Connections was outstanding from beginning to end. We reached out to them in December 2016, matched with our surrogate in December 2016, completed legal clearance in January 2017 and transferred two frozen embryos on March 14, 2017. Our agency was always available for questions and provided the guidance and support from beginning to end. We highly recommend them.
Surroconnections was AWESOME! MEGAN HALL goes out of her way to make sure everything goes smoothly each and every step! THE SUPPORT COORDINATOR Stephanie Stephens is just the best person one could have on your team! THEY TRULY CARE and are available round the clock 24/7 to answer any question! I had a healthy baby boy and through this agency and would trust them 100 percent on advice. They stand ready to help you wherever you may live and will be you and provide a feeling of comfort and best of all , OUTSTANDING RESULTS!
We had a wonderful experience with Megan Hall and SurroConnections. Megan was always there for us, the agency provided excellent service. Whenever we had any questions, Megan would reply immediately, which made us wonder if she ever sleeps at all. Through SurroConnections we found a wonderful surrogate mother who is just the nicest person imaginable and will always be a very special part of our family. Everything was just perfect. It couldn't have been a more wonderful experience.
