Such an amazing group of women; the way they care for their surrogates, and truly are passionate about their mission to build families. Love their office, so inviting and beautiful. Great friendly vibe and support for everyone that comes through their door.
I have been a 3x surrogate with SAI, let me tell you how WONDERFUL they have been to me and my children ❤, not only did they match me with Amazing IP’s all three times, they also had the best retreats and holiday meetings. Sometimes from time to time they reach out to say hi and see how everything is going not to mention but during a very difficult time of my life they were thoughtful enough to send us beautiful flowers. I’m not just a surrogate we are Surrogate sisters ❤❤❤ I definitely recommend SAI
I had my first surrogate journey with SAI and it won’t be my last. I went into this wanting to help create a family and I loved all of it including the difficult times. Every pregnancy is different and I thought I’d have a breeze of a surrogate journey since my actual pregnancy with my son was smooth but I was wrong. My surrogate journey was a tad bit difficult due to being on bed rest for some time but SAI made it as smooth as they could for me. Lots of support from the agency and they always checked up on me which I appreciated! If you are looking for an agency I highly recommend SAI as they are very attentive and they offer many services such as support groups for Surro moms.
I had worked with another agency for a previous journey and was unhappy with their support and commitment. A fellow surrogate referred me to SAI. Their staff is friendly and treat you like family. They try to match their families with surrogates that have similar interests and ideas. They have a very responsive support team, that have either been a surrogate or currently are. On top of this, they provide a monthly support group with fellow surrogates or one on one counseling. They understand that this can be a long and sometimes difficult process and so make sure their surrogates have the support they need. I have been with them for 3 years and completed one successful journey. They made it possible for me to help a couple complete their family.
I started my first surrogacy journey in 2016 (singleton) and recently finished my second surrogacy journey in June 2019 (Twins). To be honest, I never thought about being a surrogate because I had never met anyone who went through it. When I heard one of my co-workers was a surrogate carrying twins (She was a surrogate through SAI and I didn’t know at that time until after I had applied with them.) I thought that was an amazing thing she was doing and it sparked an interest. So I began doing some research and all that surrogacy entails. I decided that this was something I wanted to do. I looked up agencies and what was close to my area. SAI popped up and I went for it. So glad I did because they are truly amazing! Everyone at SAI is there with you every step of the way. They are patient, kind, and they genuinely care about you. The ladies at SAI have gone through surrogacy themselves so they know exactly what you are going through. They are a great support system throughout. They work extremely hard, driving to doctors appointment, transfers, and deliveries to be by the surrogates side. Ive had nothing but positive experiences. In the end, you help in creating a family and you make wonderful friends along the way. When the time comes, I’m looking forward to a third surrogacy journey with Surrogate Alternatives!
SAI is phenomenal! I have known these incredible woman for over 10 years. They are genuinely helpful, pleasant to be around, easy to communicate, very well rounded establishment! I love SAI!
Although, I don’t write reviews very often, I thought it would be helpful to anyone out there wondering where to start…When my friend told me about her own experience with SAI and her amazing journeys, I decided to do some research and see where thing would go from there…Honestly, I can’t think of my life without my children. Being a mother is a privilege that you need to experience on your own, it isn’t something you can explain to someone, is a very unique feeling. Not being able to have that gift would be devastating. That’s the reason why, I decided to join this journey and make a positive impact in someone else’s life.It was the best decision ever…The Support team at SAI, have been there since the beginning, from the tedious paperwork, through the initial medical screenings, appointments and everything in between. The staff at SAI is not only supportive of their surrogates, they are very friendly, most of them have been surrogates or donors themselves, they are knowledgeable and experienced because they have been through it all, most importantly they genuinely care and understand.Once I went through all the process, my case manager reached out to let me know about the medical clearance and the contracts… Every single little step moving forward was a big success… the overwhelming amount of positivity and cheerfulness coming from the ladies at SAI was so great, definitely reinforced my interest in becoming a surrogate. Now, here I am going through my first journey. At the beginning, it seemed so far from becoming a reality, and it was just me doing something great for someone. Today, I see it as an indescribable and powerful experience and I am looking forward to the rest of my journey, embracing and enjoying every single aspect of it.I am truly thankful for the Staff at SAI, for being so committed to their jobs, for loving what they do for building tomorrow’s families while making this journey so bright and wonderful for us. Although, I am not from the California area, that wasn’t an issue for them to be there for me. I never hesitate to contact them if I ever need anything. As I say, you are always there for us, through phone, email, messenger, etc. Always ready to answer any questions or listen to any concerns in a timely manner. Thank you for being so professional and polite.There is more to it than just an endless benefit package, they are also very supportive, thoughtful and they constantly communicate. I appreciate the support groups and all the things they do on a daily basis to make it a memorable experience. I don’t see myself doing this without my friend Rebecca and the entire SAI team!I totally recommend Sai to my family, friends and anyone out there interested in becoming a surrogate!If you are reading this, SAI has exceeded my expectations and will exceed yours!!!
There were things that I liked and things that I didn’t like about this agency.I really liked their benefit package and a couple of the ladies that I met from the SAI staff (my go to ladies that I would contact when I needed a questsion answered).I didn’t like that I often felt like I was just a petri dish, not an actual human. I didn’t feel like I actually mattered and that I should fit into this perfect mold of a person…like I shouldnmt have any questions at all, even if they were about what would be done to my body. There were many times I was pressured to hurry to get things done (reviewing the contract, paperwork, etc.) when I was extremely nauseous but when I had questions (even about said paperwork) sometimes I would wait weeks for a response. Many times I had to call other ladies in the office who were not assigned to me because I couldn’t get ahold of my specific assigned lady.Often times the staff were surrogates too. This is great because they can relate to what you are going through, but not so great when they can’t keep up with the surrogates they are suppose to be helping. Also, I don’t live in the same town as the office of SAI and I felt like I was treated different/semi neglected because of this. I often saw the treatment the local surrogates got and it was very different than what I got.This was the only agency I worked with, so I can’t compare to any others. I continued on to work independently (no agency) and it was the same amount of work on my part, but it cost the intended parents way less and there was no middle man.It has been a couple years since I worked with SAI and in the end I helped build a family, but I hope they have worked out these kinks and not hurt anyone on the way. This was my experience and I am a tough cookie, but I feel like a surrogate is a huge part of the equation in this situation and they should all be taken care of and treated equal. We are all on our own journeys and can’t say how someone elses should go.
SAI has been amazing throughout this surrogacy experience. Very helpful & informative with all my questions 🙂
Surrogate Alternative is amazing. They were with me throughout my whole journey and even after. They were always happy to help and did everything they could to make sure I was taken care of. The staff is friendly and get back to you quickly if you need anything. They are truly the best agency to go with if you are becoming a surrogate.
The staff was very responsive and kind. I had a great experience
Choosing a good surrogate agency is one of the most important parts of your surrogate journey. Choosing SAI means that you will have a very supportive and involved staff standing with you the entire way. I live in AL and even though the agency is in CA, everything was so simple and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. They took care of everything for me so there were no hiccups and everything went smoothly.The staff is very friendly and always willing to assist. Someone is always available to answer any questions you might have and the turn around time is quite fast. I started with the SAI in Dec 2018, got matched in Jan 2019, signed contracts in April 2019, and am now 7 weeks pregnant (due June 23, 2020). They call and check on me you before your transfer, when you are going for certain appointments, and just to check on you. They even have a representative come with you to you transfer appointment, they are so involved and I love them for it. This has been an amazing journey and I am very grateful to have SAI on my side throughout it.
Surrogate Alternatives helped me throughout the whole process of starting my application, matching me with a perfect family, and finally the birth of a beautiful baby boy!! The family I was a surrogate for was awesome! We still talk now 4 months after I gave birth! I am looking into starting another journey in a year and will choose to use Surrogate alternatives again!!
Being a part of surrogate Alternative, inc. as a surrogate have been a rewarding journey for me and my family. I was referred out to this agency from a friend, and after a month long of research and comparison I found this agency to fit me the best. I’ve came to feel really connected to the staffs and looked forward to every phone calls and emails from everyone one. The support the staff members show each and every surrogate and expecting parents is incredible. I have and will continue to refer friends to this agency.
I could not have asked for a better experience with SAI. From my application to my delivery, everything went very smooth. I was matched with an amazing family who had tried for a baby for over 10 years. I had the pleasure of helping them create TWINS! SAI was supportive and helpful every step of the way. Everything through traveling, doctors appointments, medications, communication between the agency and the parents, all the way to delivery and after! I couldn’t be more thankful for the experience and thankful for the 2nd family that I helped create and gained forever friends.
This will be my first journey with SAI i simply like all the staff there nice, welcoming and there always there if you need anything there the best.
If your looking for an agency that goes the extra mile then look no further! SAI is an incredible agency that adds a personal touch for every journey. I first worked with SAI in 2011 then moved to a different state. I am thrilled that SAI now works with surrogates in Colorado because I was able to return to them for another journey. I would recommend SAI to all my family and friends. Big thanks to the AMAZING team at SAI! -Ashleigh
Always friendly staff. They are very assertive and they respond to you in a very timely manner they educate you on everything you need to know. I love S.A.I
SAI Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable also some have been surrogates themselves. So, not only do they know the journey you will be starting they also know procedures and policies. I have enjoyed working with them so far.
I worked with SAI a few years ago and am currently working on my second journey. My experience was so AMAZING. The entire staff is incredible, they all go above and beyond to support you and your journey every step of the way, before, during and after! Everyone is caring, helpful, and sweet.
Such a loving and caring business
I have been with SAI for 4 years now and through two journeys, and the staff is always so kind and makes sure everything is going well. I love when they check in and how often they do it. I’ve been given so much help with recommendations , especially on how to do my injections. I love to ice and warm up the areas before injections. Warming helps move the oil that’s already in your previously objected sites, then the cold helps numb the area for a more sensitive day. Also, warming your oil underneath your boob/in your bra has always been the most effective way for me to heat my oil. If you don’t heat it, it’s basically like peanut butter being objected. Always warm the oil yall. That’s all I have to say. Love you, SAI! ❤️
I am currently working with SAI and they have been there for me every single step of the way from questions to procedures they are always there. And if I ever forget to ask a question I shoot over a simple email and within an hour I almost always have a response! They are always on top of things! I love the wonderful ladies from SAI
Absolutely love SAI!! The staff are amazing and I wouldn’t want to go with any other agency! They have truly become family =)
I am a first time surrogate with SAI, who recently gave birth to twins. My experience with SAI has been nothing short of amazing. As a surrogate they offer you great support from the application process to visiting you after delivery. They matched me with the perfect couple. I couldn’t imagine being a surrogate with any other agency. The other surrogates you meet during your journey with SAI become your sisters. My case manager Rachel was heaven sent. She always made me feel special and always showed so much interested in my journey. She was always there to answer every question and give support whenever needed. When I am ready for a second journey, it will be with SAI.
The staff is extremely comforting and friendly. I will be starting my first journey with this agency and I can’t imagine have going through this with any other agency!
Love these people this place and the lives they’ve help change!!
SAI is such a supportive group of woman. They are encouraging, caring, and enjoy every moment of their job. I am happy with the decision to join this agency! Keep up the great work ladies!
While looking into surrogacy I did some in-depth research of several agencies. I went with SAI because they are very supportive of their surrogates. They make sure that their surrogates are well taken care of through support groups (both online and in person) and by checking up via phone calls or email. You can decide how often you want them to check in with you too. I just completed my first journey and was able to help create a family for a wonderful couple who I know I will remain life-long friends with. This is all thanks to SAI! From the moment I called the agency, to the matching process, and all the way to the end of the journey, they were there when I needed them and even when I did not. I would highly recommend SAI if you are looking into being a surrogate.
Coming to this website every day puts a big smile on my face! There is nothing better than pics of happy babies being cuddled by even happier families. Kudos to SAI for creating these families and posting their joy for the rest of us to see 🙂
I came across SAI while looking into surrogacy last April. The more and more I read their web page I knew this was the company for me. And I am so happy with my choice. I’m currently on my first journey carrying twins for a wonderful couple that I would never have matched with if it wasn’t for the whole family at SAI. I feel so honored and grateful to be apart of this family now. The monthly support groups, the Facebook support group, the constant check ups and support from all the girls in the office really makes the journey that much more special. At SAI you are not just a surrogate you are truly family. They are there for you from every important doctors appointment to every day life. If you are thinking about surrogacy this is the agency you want to go through. They are amazing and you won’t be disappointed ��
SAI is wonderful, I love the staff they’re very supportive.
SAI is amazing! They make you feel part of their family. I love all the support they give you and they are always available if you need the extra support. Been a surrogate has changed my life . It’s an amazing, beautiful and life changing experience for you and the Intended parents.
I researched many agencies before finally deciding upon SAI. They’re friendly, helpful, supportive throughout the entire process. You won’t regret your decision.
SAI has been great so far with my surrogacy journey. Helpful when I needed it and always quick to respond with useful information when I have questions. I love all the women who work there!
I was blessed to be introduced to this great company! I don’t have to worry about anything when I have these angels bu my side guiding me through my journeys. Thank you SAI
I researched surrogacy agencies for a long time before choosing SAI back in 2014. I was SO pleased with the way their agency operated that I have never and will never look elsewhere. The women at this agency care about each surrogate on a very real level. I always felt lifted up by them even though I am not local to the agency building. This agency will go above and beyond to honor you as a surrogate, and to make sure the Intended Parents feel respected and loved. If you’re looking for a moving and emotionally beautiful surrogacy experience, look no further.
SAI changed our for the best! Our twin boys are a miracle in our lives. Game changers! The staff is amazing and the experience has been supportive and full of love. Choosing a surrogacy agency is as easy as S A I!!
As a health and wellness consultant working with SAI surrogates, I’m very impressed with this agency. They care about their surrogates and it shows. I also have 2 close friends who needed surrogacy to fulfill their parenting dreams and they both chose SAI. Both families are thrilled with a total of 3 healthy babies (all girls) between them. I highly recommend SAI.
Some of the support staff have no clue what they are talking about…..if someone treats you like you’re an idiot for icing your bum before your progesterone injections, and that what you should be doing is heating your bum with a heating pad before you do the injection, from that moment on- stop listening to anything else they have to say. They are not an intelligent source of info.BTW- heating your bum before the injection- makes it 10x worse! Ice is the way to go.SMH…….
I have been on my first journey with SAI for a long time almost two years I had a failed transfers with my first IPs and unfortunately they decided not to continue I got rematched with another set and just delivered two healthy baby boys last week. My journey with SAI has been amazing from start to finish I had called two other agencies prior to contacting SAI but no one was as welcoming and informative as them they made u feel comfortable from the start. Through out the whole process good times hard times confusing time they always make sure you feel the support and answer all and any questions if they don’t have the answer they make sure to get it or find someone who does. I would totally recommend them to anyone looking for an awesome experience and am totally thinking about trying for a 2nd journey next year!!
I am a first time surrogate. I have had 1 failed transfer which i was extremely sad about. SAI has been here every step of the way. These ladies are the best!
My experience with SAI has been very positive. I have meet some very amazing girls though this journey. The staff at SAI are very supportive and helpful. I am very glad to have chose them to share this experience.
I am almost 34 weeks into my first surrogacy journey through SAI. I am carrying twin girls for a wonderful couple in China. I chose to be a surrogate because the thought of not being able to be a mother would be heartbreaking, and that is reality for a lot of women. Being able to give the gift of life is so rewarding. I came across SAI via a website search and just fell in love immediately! Their website has so much information! I called and spoke to Rebecca who was SO amazing and really took the time to answer any and all of my questions. It wasn’t long after that phone call that I signed contracts and began the process! I cannot say enough wonderful things about SAI! Everyone at SAI is so friendly, it really feels like you are part of a family! I will definitely be doing another journey after I complete this one!
I’ve worked with SAI for each of my 3 journeys as a surrogate mother. They were helpful and knowledgeable throughout the whole process. I always knew that no matter who I spoke with, they would know about my case or find the best person to support me. I love the staff at SAI! They treat the surrogates like royalty and truly understand what they are going through. Throughout the six years with them, I have referred 3 friends who also had successful journeys. Even though, I’m no longer a surrogate mother, I continue to refer moms who love being pregnant and want to make a difference by be a blessing to someone else.
I just completed my first surrogacy journey with the help of SAI. From the very beginning I felt such incredible support from the staff. They genuinely care about their surrogates, and make the effort to be involved and available should you need them anytime. I was blessed to be matched with an amazing couple from China. 2 weeks ago I delivered their boy/girl twins…. it was one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever felt. There are no words to explain the feeling you get when you finally see the family all together that you helped create. These parents that went through so much, but yet never gave up hope and were willing to try anything, crying and smiling with the purest form of joy. These tiny blessings that have been prayed for and dreamt about for so long. Together at last…..truly a picture worth a thousand words. I am forever grateful and am incredibly proud to be a surrogate mother. A big THANK YOU to SAI and all my amazing surrogate sisters for all the love and support during this journey. You all have been there from day 1 and will be in my heart always. �
This agency has been nothing short of amazing… would highly recommend!!! They really make you feel valued, important and like family. The support they provide is unlike any other… and they genuinely care. Happy to have worked with such an incredible group!
I just completed my first journey with SAI, delivering a healthy baby boy on Christmas Day. From day one when I first met with Rebecca to today, the support has been above anything I expected. Everyone was always more than willing to help and the support of Julie along my journey was outstanding. She was more than willing to drive hours away (each way) to be at appointments with me (even in the rain) and a smile never left her face. They are always making sure their surrogates are taken care of and go above and beyond to do so. Once I recover, I am hoping to be able to do a second journey with SAI. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for an agency! �
I absolutely loved my experience with SAI. They helped me fulfill my dream of becoming a surrogate. The girls there were always so helpful answering any questions I had or just providing emotional/physical support. I’m so glad I chose such a great agency to work with.
If I didn’t know the meaning of SAI, I would have assumed it meant this: Super Amazing Individuals From the beginning of my journey to today (39.2 weeks pregnant) my entire journey has gone better than I could have ever dreamed! The ladies at SAI have not only been extremely helpful but they are consistently supportive, kind, happy, caring, thoughtful, loving individuals that pour their entire heart and souls into each journey. They go above and beyond and after hours to make sure that we are well taken care of. These women even extend their own bodies to help other families in need. I am forever grateful for my exceptional surrogate family! Thank you SAI❤
SAI is more then just my agency they have become my family. I can’t express how loving, caring and thoughtful the whole staff is at SAI. They go out of their way to make you feel part of the family. You will not find a more dedicated business owner either then Diana. She goes out of her way to make her surrogates feel special. I have already referred three friends to this agency and will continue to do the same. I hope to do 1 last Journey with them as well!
This is my first journey as a surrogate and I am absolutely enjoying it so far. I am currently 14 weeks with twins for an amazing couple. SAI has been really supportive, helpful and compassionate through my journey this far. I look forward to the months ahead.
I have been working with SAI for about 7 years and have had 3 wonderful surrogate journeys with them. Because of them I have extended my family over seas and now the IP’s and their 3 beautiful boys are one of the best things that have happened in my life. Each time I have embarked on a new journey it was just adding another extension to my family tree. I’m now on my 4th journey and I know without a doubt that it will be another wonderful experience. SAI has always been there to answer any of my questions, even if they were repetitive questions. I have always felt welcomed in the events I have attended and I could say that being a part of their family is awesome and would recommend them to anyone who wants to have an amazing surrogate journey.
My journey with SAI started 9 months ago and it has been amazing. I have thought about becoming a surrogate for many years and researched several agencies. I decided on SAI because I received a great recommendation for them from a friend and honestly, they seemed the most supportive of their surrogates. The process for me moved pretty quickly from applying, to being matched, and eventually to my transfer. The staff has been so kind and helpful along the way. I am currently pregnant, carrying for a couple who is beyond amazing and already so much a part of mine and my family’s lives. I am so thankful for SAI in making my dream of becoming a surrogate come true!
My journey has been long but the staff is very attentive and caring. This is my 1st time and so far I can’t say nothing but great things about this agency. I love the group we have on FB because we get to see each and everyone’s experience and how close we can all get with just one post. Thank you SAI staff for letting me be a part of your family.
Everything about SAI is AMAZING! I’m currently 24.3wks in on my first Surrogacy journey and SAI is there for you every step of the way! I have nothing but great things to say about SAI! I couldn’t ask for a better agency to be with!y journey so far has been amazingly great!!
I was referred to SAI by a friend and SAI has truly been a blessing during this wonderful journey! The staff is so supportive and make everything so easy. Any time I’ve had a question they are knowledgeable and reply very quickly as well as just being there for general support. Everyone at SAI has been so great to work with and I have never felt so pampered in my life, which makes my pregnancy that much easier 😃
I’ve been a surrogate through SAI 3 times. Each experience wonderfully amazing in its own way. The ladies here are helpful and kind. Always available when needed. It’s never a dull moment while helping complete a family and it’s nice to know you always have great friends to talk to! 😉
I am currently starting my third journey with SAI. I have returned to SAI everytime because I know it’s an agency I can trust. I have connected with so many amazing women at retreats that have become friends!
I have had 2 different surrogacy journeys with SAI, and both experiences were outstanding. SAI treats their surrogates like they are family, and the bond that all of us sisters share is amazing. After a hard delivery, I was so overwhelmed by the kindness and support everyone at SAI showed me. I would choose this agency over and over again!
I was lucky enough to be referred to SAI by a friend who is on her third journey with this amazing agency. From the first phone call to SAI I knew it was going to be an incredible experience. I was matched with a family in Australia, we hit it off immediately. I carried twins for them and enjoyed every minute of it. There is no feeling like the pure joy of helping to create a family. Introducing the twins to their eager parents is and will always be one of my most treasured moments. I’d like to thank SAI for helping me discover a whole new kind of happiness. The agency was so supportive from the very beginning. I always knew helpful advice was just a phone call, text, email, or Facebook message away.
I’m so unbelievably thankful for Sai. I’ve always wanted to do this for someone. I was so grateful to be able to meet my intended parents and go through this beautiful journey with them. My monkey babies are healthy happy and handsome… The parents are over the moon! And that was the goal and we did it together! Thank you Sai! And thank you Dr. Stomtrich…. Lupe your amazing!
I started my journey with SAI over a year ago and every step of the way they’ve been right there beside me. It doesn’t matter what you’re going through, they care and they WANT to be a resource for their surrogates. Every transfer, every meeting, every pregnancy milestone they’re there. I wouldn’t even think of doing this again without SAI.
I highly recommend using SAI for your surrogacy journey. I guarantee that you will leave with a bigger circle of family and friends. They have a huge support system that always calls to check in. They have wonderful case managers. Shelly is my case manager and I can't praise her enough! She is amazing! She truly cares! She doesn't let me settle for second best. Shelly makes sure I am getting EVERYTHING I need and I love that! I have been with SAI for 3 years and have loved every moment!
SAI has been nothing but AMAZING! I am currently 10 weeks pregnant in my first surrogacy journey! From my first initial phone call with SAI I felt so welcomed into such a knowledgeable family feel business. The staff is always just a call/email/text away for support or to answers any questions you have. I love that the staff will attend your doctor appointments with you! You always have a support system no matter what! I feel so honored to be giving a precious gift to a family and having SAI has made this journey so smooth! Thank you ladies for all you do! I am looking forward to the next 30 weeks and hopefully more journeys to come!
Avete propio da vantarvi di questo schifo…..mettete il codice a barre anche sui bambini e poi si paga alla cassa…..sconcertante…..
SAI is a wonderful company to work for! Love everyone there! ❤️
Bambini Sono molti carini vorrei Presto Io un figlio dentro di me pero sono single
Well where to begin… LOVE the agency, LOVE the staff! They matched me with the most amazing IPS and had the most amazing journey! The staff makes sure they are with you every step of the way, from IVF appointments, dr’s visits to helping you make sure you are comfortable in the delivery room.. you name it they are there! I highly recommend SAI to anyone that is considering being a surrogate.
SAI is Amazing! They have been so supportive, there for you every step of the way! They truly care about their surrogates and am so happy I found them! Best agency ever!
I contacted them regarding becoming a surrogate. I’ve been in contact with a few agencies as I wanted to see who I felt most comfortable with. I spoke with Bernadette. I felt she was really dismissive. She emailed me back and I responded with a question and she never got back to me, which was after her first initial dismissive email. If based on the initial information I gave you, you don’t think I am a good fit, then tell me. Don’t blow me off and be rude. Based on some of the “Hidden” reviews, people feel that this agency only is interested in the people that can help make them money. Based on my experience, I’d say that might be true. I am with a different agency and am already matched with a family. I had wanted to work with SAI but based on my interactions with Bernadette, I would never.
I have a whole new appreciation to give to surrogates and surrogacy as a whole because of this agency. I just gave birth to twins Nov 9, 2014 because of this agency and couldn’t be more thrilled with them all! The staff is wonderful, patient, caring, and there to help every step of the way. They make sure you get everything you deserve, and have all of the support you could ever want or need. The support group meetings are always fun and filled with food and sometimes prizes! I can’t even explain how much I love their retreats also. I was so happy with this agency and I know if anyone looking for a potential agency looks into SAI, they won’t be let down!! Thank you, SAI for everything you did to help me complete a family. My blog about my journey can be read at alittercaravan.blogspot.….
Glad to be on my 3rd journey. I may not be as involved in the forum but that’s because I just sometimes get lazy posting things on FB.� SAI is a great agency and I love what they do for us surrogates. It’s sad to read about other surrogates not satisfied with this agency but that’s maybe because something didn’t go as planned for them.
I had the pleasure of working with SAI in 2008. I have always loved being pregnant & when I heard of surrogacy I knew it was something I wanted to do. These women welcomed me with open arms & made my journey as a surrogate absolutely priceless. They matched me with such a wonderful couple from Germany & was by my side every step of the way. I delivered healthy twin girls in March 2009. Ann was my main point of contact & I would not have had it any other way. She, as well as the other women, are such a pleasure to work with. And even better, they’ve been surrogates too so they can actually relate to everything you’re feeling & going through. If my doctor was ever to give me the thumbs up to be a surrogate again I wouldn’t even consider any other agency. Love all these women to the moon!! I HIGHLY recommend this agency for your future family needs 🙂
Not sure who the person below me who reviewed is, but I doubt they truly worked with SAI. This company is incredible. I am a current surrogate with SAI and 33 weeks pregnant. Not only are the employees considerate and kind and helpful to the women applying to become a surrogate, they go out of their way to make sure that you are comfortable every step of the way. They matched me with a fantastic couple, and have been supportive through my entire journey. If you are looking for a surrogacy agency that puts the interests of the surrogate at the same weight as the families they help, this is your agency. I recommend SAI to everyone I know who has considered surrogacy.
Wonderful agency for Intended Parents and Surrogates alike. Friendly, helpful and supportive during the whole process. I have used them twice now and everything went smoothly.
Everyone Is So Sweet AND nice…such wonderful people to work with.
This agency is amazing. Right from the start they were informative and helpful! I was quickly matched with a couple who I still to this day have a connection with. The contracts you get into are tailored to meet your needs so I don’t understand what the other reviewer was talking about. If I didn’t like something in my contract I could change it or not agree to it. SAI has helped thousands of families have babies and I am proud that I help two amazing families. The agency is also very involved and if you ever have questions you will immediately get answers. If you ever are confused about something they will help you understand it, especially when it comes to the contracts. I had a wonderful experience with this agency ! I left another agency to be with SAI due to their impeccable organization and amazing amount of support from all who work there and from all my surrogate sisters I’ve met through there! I highly recommend this agency! Thank you to SAI for making my experience and my intended parents experience amazing!
One of the greatest experiences of my life was being a Surrogate for SA…;) it was such a huge honor to be chosen to be a carrier of someone else’s baby or babies. Thank you to the wonderful staff and fabulous owner …
I helped two beautiful families through SAI personally as a surrogate mother and have been blessed to be apart of many journeys over the many years I’ve worked for SAI! I’m so grateful to have such a wonderfully rewarding job!
Currently on my first surro journey and I absolutely LOVE SAI! Their staff is always quick to respond to emails, or returning phone calls if I miss their office hours. Every step of the way, they have been there to guide me and help get my journey moving forward! Very surro friendly!
This is my first time being a surrogate and everyone has been there for me during this journey. The women who work here are exceptional in what they do and how they address things. I would recommend Surrogate Alternatives to any woman who is serious about becoming a surrogate or egg donor.
Amazing Agency! You can feel the love and passion of the staff when you go there
Do not sign with them. Their agreement is extremely abusive. They have no interest in your having a baby. Only one thing matters to them : money. 100% upfront fee, 0 refund under any circumstances, etc…Answer to SAI :1/ I found another surrogate by my own means. She got pregnant with twins with a single transfer. So proof is here, the doctor was right to ask to switch surrogates.2/ you call $1,000 discount out of $20,000 a “substantial discount”? Now everyone knows who you really are.
