"Our goal is to look out for you, the intended parent, to help you find the best
possible candidates and services available."
The Donor Concierge team is comprised of compassionate and well-educated professional
women, drawn to us by their desire to help intended parents achieve their goal of
growing their family. We have chosen each team member for her unique ability to
relate to our clients. We have a multinational office with Canadian, Chinese, Filipino,
and American case managers who speak a variety of languages including Mandarin,
French, Tagalog, Spanish, and English.
It is our goal to help you to find the best third party fertility options from the
finest agencies in the country. Gail has had a long history in this field and knows
these agencies well. We take time to get to know new agencies, choosing to work
only with agencies we feel have integrity that will take care of our clients. We
regularly reevaluate our list of agencies, adding new agencies that show promise
and eliminating agencies that no longer meet our standards.
The donor process is expensive but adding this service can save a lot of additional
stress and get hopeful parents closer to their goal much faster. Their expertise
and passion are obvious. I look forward to sending them a picture of our baby when
the time comes!
Our commitment—my commitment as founder and owner of Donor Concierge—is to work
in the best interests of our clients. When you are struggling with infertility,
we want you to have confidence in the integrity of service providers with whom you
choose to work. Two of the founding principles of Donor Concierge are integrity
and transparency. Accordingly, I commit to the following:
Our fees are clear. There are no hidden costs at Donor Concierge, no surprises.
Our fees are outlined clearly on our ‘Services’ pages. Those are our fees. Period.
We don’t take referral fees from agencies because we don’t want to be beholden to
any agency. We work for you, the intended parents, only. Rather than take a referral
fee, we have asked that agencies offer our clients a discount on their administrative
We give you our honest opinion. With nearly 20 years’ experience working with thousands
of intended parents to navigate the unfamiliar world of third-party fertility, we
have developed insight into who makes a good donor or surrogate. We will give you
our opinion and tell you why we have developed that opinion. Donor Concierge doesn’t
benefit from which egg donor or surrogate you choose. Our greatest reward comes
when you are happy with your choice of egg donor or surrogate.
The whole Donor Concierge team and I look forward to working with you as you seek
that perfect egg donor who fits into your family or the surrogate who will cherish
her precious cargo as if it were her own. Let us know how we can help.
What are the Different Types of Surrogacy
and What are They Called?
Surrogacy involves using one woman's uterus for the purpose of implanting and carrying
an embryo in order to deliver a baby for another person or couple. The woman who
will carry the embryo is known as the surrogate. This process entails using in vitro
fertilization in order to place the fertilized egg into the surrogate's uterus.
There are two primary types of surrogacy. These are traditional and gestational,
and each works in a somewhat different fashion.
