We recently read about the launch of Surrogacy Advisor, a new site that offers ratings of surrogacy agencies from parents who've used a surrogate to carry their child. The site also includes reviews and ratings of fertility clinics.
Surrogacy Advisor appears to be just getting started, so there's definitely not a comprehensive list of agencies and clinics represented (and some are outside the U.S.), but over time it could become a valuable tool to help would-be parents who are looking for a reputable surrogate or a clinic to work with -- one that others in their situation rated highly. At press time, just 11 surrogacy agencies had ratings, with between three and 22 reviews for each. You can see the average cost for surrogacy at each rated agency, and how long the surrogacy "journey" took, on average, in months.
For fertility clinics, you can see a clinic's overall score (based on a survey completed by parents who used it), the total number of reviews (at press time, CT Fertility had the highest rating, and also the greatest number of reviews - 26, compared to as few as three for many clinics -- though only 10 clinics were listed, including a few outside the U.S.), as well as the percentage of patients who filled out the survey who conceived on the first cycle.
Would you use a service like Surrogacy Advisor?
