Well i have been trying be a surrogate for 2 1/2 years now. I went with an agency out of central California, and my experience was awful. The agency was all about the money, and did not give a darn about its surrogates or the ip's. All hey cared about is where their next check came from. I have had check from them bounce, and i still have medical bills that i have not been paid. I have left that agency and i am currently looking for anther one. So i wish that i would have changed how long i stayed with that agency, and started looking for one sooner.

Say thanks for the support and click on a banner ad!

I'm sorry you had such a bad experience! I loved the agency I had used Melissa Brisman's office. If I had listened to a lot of ladies on here I probably wouldn't have even bothered to apply there. I have nothing but wonderful excellent things to say about them. Checks on time (and never bounced) all bills taken care of, phone calls returned quickly. I hope you find an agency you do like. Remember this- we can all give our own opinions, but what may be right for 1 isn't always right for another. So even if you hear negative stuff, you can still call them and see how YOU feel. Hopefully you find a right fit!

Sorry you had such a bad experience. Thankfully not all are like that, and you can have a really good agency experience. I hope that your future endeavors are MUCH better for you.

Yanno...(I'm not sure of the exact protocol in this type of situation...prob should ask a mod) but if you have concrete proof of the troubles you went thru, you should post a warning in the Beware section to let other IPs and surros know.

I am truly sorry for the garbage you've gone thru!:hug:
I am with a CA that is wonderful and would NEVER allow anything like that to happen...good agencies are out there!!

Hi i am from California and i actually went through BALA surrogacy they are not in CA but they work with IPs and surrogates from all over

It took a while for me to find a match but not because of them because i had had a miscarriage and some IPs are hestitant to work with a Surrogate who has had a miscarriage which is understandable at fear that it was me and not my fiancees sperm Which i know it was not me it is him
But i am also a traditional surrogate so you can understand the fear

Well i can give her name if you would like

They handle GS and TS more GS than TS's but they handle both

This post is perfectly worded. I too was with Brisman and never had a complaint except for the contracr phase which is stressful and challenging regardless of being Indy or with an agency. Good luck.
