My husband and I found Fertility Match through a recommendation from our lawyer and we could not be happier with our choice!!! We had looked at a different Canadian agency but friends of ours had a previous bad experience… and both our lawyer and clinic shared the concerns. We wanted an agency that was going to be of high integrity, legally sound, and was looking out for our best interests. From the first phone call with Liz and Lisa we knew right away they were “The One”!
One thing that drew us to them was that they have experience from both sides of the process… Liz is a former Intended Parent and Lisa was a Gestational Surrogate. They make sure everyone in the process is looked after. It’s amazing to have the support for ourselves, but also to know that our Surrogate is getting support throughout the process as well.
One major thing that made us want to work with them above other agencies… they made clear to us that they carefully choose Surrogates and Intended Parents to be a part of their program. They spend the time to find out if people are in this for the right reasons and don’t accept all applicants. They introduced us to the most incredible Surrogate within 2 months of submitting our profile… I didn’t know that people as kind and altruistic as her could exist… she is truly a super-human! We are now 8 1/2 weeks pregnant!!
They have truly made this an incredible experience for us… from details like driving down to Toronto to visit us, sending gift baskets and congratulatory phone calls, they make it such a personalized experience and it is so clear they are passionate about what they do! I highly highly recommend using these ladies!

Fertility Match Made My Egg Donation Easy!
The process went super well with the clinic I was provided with and I followed every instruction the doctors had given me to make sure nothing went wrong and I had a great experience!
I would 100% recommend Fertility Match to friends or anyone interested in donating because they are quick with replies, reimbursements, and always check in to make sure you are feeling okay and everything is going well!
I’m glad I chose to try Fertility Match and they made the experience easy for me.
I will be donating again through Fertility Match and thank them for the awesome opportunity they are giving to Intended Parents and families!

There is No Other Place like Fertility Match!
I had no major concerns about the donation process. Since day one, Liz and the team made sure that they told me everything in detail. But in case I had any concerns, they were resolved quickly by Liz. Most of all, I was scared to be left alone in this journey. But none of that happened. Liz and the Intended Mother were very supporting and caring. Even my doctor said me, "what you are doing is good karma and it will surely bring you good in the future." Who can have any concerns when people with whom you are working are so supportive and encouraging? Liz was always just a phone call away. Just like my own mother, she checked on me before and after my appointments and during the whole donation phase. I couldn't have asked for more from her.
My egg donation journey has been amazing. Every minor as well as major issue was well dealt with. It was made sure that there was no discomfort experienced by me.
I would recommend Fertility Match to all my friends interested in being Egg Donors. There is no other place that could make you feel good about yourself and appreciate what you are doing. I even asked my own sister to be an Egg Donor for Fertility Match.

There for Me Every Step of the Way!
Liz along with everyone else from Fertility Match made me feel comfortable throughout the donation process. Liz was truly there for me every step of the way, I never felt alone. She did a great job at keeping me and the Intended Parents updated!

We’re so thankful and excited!
We were referred to Fertility Match just as they were starting up. Liz and Lisa took the time to really get to know us and understand our journey and our needs. It was so easy to talk to them. They really understood our situation as they’d been through it themselves – Liz from the Intended Parent side, and Lisa from the Surrogate perspective. They have come to feel like team members, cheering us on, and stepping in for support through the process when we’ve needed it. They coach us, hope with us, get nervous with us, and get excited with us. They brought us the kind of woman as a Surrogate that we could only hope for – a wonderful woman with a big heart and a generous spirit. She is kind, caring, bubbly and determined. She feels like family. If I can’t carry the baby myself, I am glad she is the one to do it.

My Wonder Woman!
We were really fortunate to find a Surrogate like her. Often times, people would ask me, aren’t you worried she’s not eating right, or doing anything that would jeopardize the pregnancy? I can honestly say, no, not at all. Our entire journey with Lisa was incredible. We trusted each other completely. We spent time together after each doctor’s appointment just getting to know each other. We’ve met each other’s families. She’s is a wonderful mom, with amazing children of her own. I called her my wonder woman!
My twins are now 16mths old now. Lisa and I still keep in touch, and she will forever be a part of our family. We are so grateful for the wonderful gift she gave us! Now that she is consulting for other families, I can honestly say that there is no person I would trust more to guide you through this journey!

There will be ups and downs, just like in other areas of life; But if you love and support each other and have a strong relationship this can be one of the most rewarding experiences you will ever have.read more
Surrogacy is a very personal choice. The reasons why a woman chooses to be a surrogate vary. I chose to be a surrogate mother to help another woman who couldn’t conceive become a mother. When starting out on your journey as a surrogate, take time to think about who you are meant to help. Is it a single parent, a heterosexual couple or a same sex couple? Once you decide who you want to help, you will begin to “date” potential intended parents. This is a very important part of the process. Just like dating a potential romantic interest – you quickly learn what you are looking for in this relationship.read more
Selecting a surrogate mother to share this journey with is one of, if not the most, important decisions you will make during this process.

Unfortunately, many parents are in such a hurry to get the process started they may overlook some important details that can lead to stress and conflict down the road. Here are five questions I think you should ask yourself as an intended parent when deciding if a potential surrogate is the right fit for you.read more
