Clinic reviews and comments

Response
Was not sensitive to Intended Mother by treating the Surrogate like an IVF patient. Surrogate had to relay information and questions received by clinic to Intended Mother instead of contacting directly.
Shady Grove is fantastic. I would recommend them to anyone struggling with fertility issues. I had less than a 16% chance of having a baby and they found a way to make a miracle.
We were very pleased overall with Shady Grove. Although the people we dealt with were all very welcoming and helpful to us as a same-gender couple, a few of the institutional aspects of the organization are still a bit heteronormative.
I think that the process for the gestational carrier route is not as clear or as smooth as the traditional IVF route. There are some opportunities to improve this process and make it more clear to the parents
