I want to first start off by saying that this IS a legit and real donor agency. I'm seeing some of the reviews are claiming it's not. I am a two time donor with this company, and have had nothing but good experiences. Amanda W, my coordinator is the best. Very prompt with emails, texts, etc and was always able to answer any question I had. They also set you up with excellent attorneys to walk you through the legal process, so you're always in good hands. I'm working on my third donation with them now and couldn't be happier with my experience.
I first started looking at becoming a surrogate in 2014, and after a lot of research, decided to go through ConceiveAbilities. The entire experience, start to finish, was amazing. So amazing that I carried again a few years after delivering my first belly buddy. Their matching process is a highlight for me…my IPs and I could not be a better fit for each other. In the 5 years we’ve known each other, we have become family.I felt fully supported throughout the entire process. My case manager, Kim, was always quick to respond to calls and emails, and she handled all of the details with both speed and friendliness. I never felt like just a name on her list.My experience with ConceiveAbilities has been nothing but excellent. I am so thankful I chose them when looking for an agency for my surrogacy journey.
I only give it a three star because I emailed them and spoke to someone about donating my eggs and I asked the person before I apply should I just wait until my birth control is out and start back having regular periods the lady told me that me being on birth control didn’t matter and that I should still apply which was wrong because I was denied.
My Wife just had a consultation appointment and was grossly disappointment. My wife and I would like to see videos of the donors like other donor websites offer and they refuse to offer it. My wife stated how can we choose a donor if we can’t see and hear how they talk a how they move? They stated the donors are not comfortable with doing that even though other donor sites offer this through their secured web portals. They want $2500 up front just to see the donors medical records and psych exam. If you don’t like it you won’t get your money back but the money can go towards 2 more donors. Seriously?! What a scam! I seriously doubt some of the donor pictures are even real people. Some look too good to be true to get you hooked. Overall, they want $25,000 – $26,000 for one cycle of eggs. My wife said the lady spoke like a car salesman and spoke so fast she could barely understand her. My wife shared her background of infertility and lady was not even sympathetic just went into her sales pitch. It was very tacky to say the least.We’re completely turned off and moving forward with another agency that offers videos of donors.
I just completed my second journey with ConceiveAbilities; a little girl 2 years ago and then a little brother last month for the same amazing family. My experience as a surrogate far exceeded any hopes or expectations I had, and I believe the most important reason for that is that they completely nailed our match. ConceiveAbilities prides themselves on their matching process, and I couldn’t have dreamt of a more perfect family to work with!! The staff at ConceiveAbilities has been so supportive throughout the 4 years I’ve been working with them. They have given me the opportunity to meet many other women in our “surro-sisterhood”, several of whom have become very good friends. I’ve never felt forgotten, have never had any issues with payments or reimbursements, and my questions are always answered in a timely manner. I would highly recommend ConceiveAbilities to anyone else wishing to experience this amazing journey!
I had an amazing first surrogate journey through Conceiveabilities. Everyone was very friendly, helpful, and informative. I’m currently starting my second journey with them..I wouldn’t go through any other agency!
Conceiveabilities is a wonderful company to deal with. They made my first surrogate journey so smooth, I’m currently starting a second one! To them, you’re not just a number; you’re treated as an individual. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful; I’d recommend them for all surrogates and intended parents!
From the initial application to transferring in 4 weeks…the whole process has been incredibly smooth thanks to the amazingly supportive and knowledgeable staff! I have never been left in the dark or with questions unanswered. Wonderful experience!
When I started my surrogacy journey, I had done only a little research through facebook groups. Most of the places I looked only listed the negatives and who not to work for so it was difficult to know who to contact. But luckily I had a friend that did a bunch and recommended ConceiveAbilities to me who I had not seen mentioned. I delivered in August and I cannot say enough good things about this company. They were with me through all the little bumps along the way, from travel hiccups to questions on insurance to handling disappointments that came up. They are always there to lend an ear or to find answers to questions. Even 2 months out from delivery, I know that I could contact my match manager or support group leader if I had any concerns regarding my last journey or if I just needed to chat about how I am feeling since delivery. When I started my journey it was a little scary, but everyone I have been in contact with was super friendly and encouraging. I never felt like just an incubator or a paycheck to them. I felt like my match manager went out of her way to provide support for things I didn’t even know I was looking for. This has been an amazing experience and since they changed their stance on 1099’s I am already thinking about my next journey with this amazing company. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to make a family for a deserving mother and/or father that just needs a little extra help in making their dreams come true.
They have been a wonderful agency to work with. I have no complaints what so ever. They’re with you every step of the way and never leave you feeling confused.
Being a surrogate, I just want to say that working with ConceiveAbilities was an amazing, stress free (in an otherwise stressful process) journey from start to finish! I have nothing but positive things to say about them from my experience. As said above, they make every step smooth as you go through the various phases. The women that work there are all so personable, professional and very knowledgeable as most have either been a surrogate themselves, or they’ve experienced situations even their Intended Parents are dealing with. I highly recommend them as your choice in agency! I would work with them again in a heartbeat for a second journey, but sadly, I moved to a state where ConceivAbilities hasn’t yet been able to accommodate surrogates.
The partnership between my ConceiveAbilities Match Manager and my Intended Parents has made for an awesome seamless process! I’m so happy I found ConceiveAbilities and started this incredible journey!
Everyone here is super helpful and always answers questions right away. From the very beginning of my journey I have felt extremely supported and never had any doubts. Everyone here is amazing!
I’m currently a surrogate for ConceiveAbilities. I did a lot of research before deciding which company would be best for me and by far I feel like I made the best decision with ConceiveAbilities there is so much support you know they truly care they are always on top of everything I really appreciate all of their help. I would definitely recommend them !
As a surrogate, my experience has been nothing but positive. There is so much support for every part of this amazing journey, and that is so important when it comes to carrying a child that is not yours. I am so very grateful to Conceivabilities for being so detailed in matching my Intended Father and myself, for the constant support, and for introducing me to some of the bravest and strongest women I know. If you are considering becoming a surrogate, start a conversation with one of the beautiful ladies from here and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
Working with this agency has been a delight! Every person I have come into contact with has been easy to get a hold of and full of knowledge.
