Gestational Surrogacy

At our post-IVF consult with Dr. Beltsos it was agreed that gestational surrogacy would be our next step. The condition of my uterus seemed to be the obstacle that was keeping us from success in our past cycles. Greg and I were very impressed with Mindy from Lotus Blossom Consulting, but decided to research some local surrogacy agencies before making a final decision. We spent the next few weeks exploring all of our options. After meeting with the other agencies and talking to other women who had used gestational surrogates, we made a decision to work with Mindy. We felt that she had the most experience and resources to help us find the perfect surrogate. We also really trusted Dr. Beltsos' referral. You can learn more about Mindy Berkson and Lotus Blossom Consulting at the following link:

Greg and I feel very confident in our choice and are excited to start the surrogacy process. We know that we are in great hands with Dr. Beltsos and Mindy Berkson. We continue to pray every night that our baby will find us soon. We are looking forward to keeping you updated in our journey. Please keep us in your  thoughts and prayers.


  1. Hi Katie,

    I am also thinking about surrogacy, however it is a big decision to make considering the cost of it, can you please share your experience, opinion, thought etc before you decide to go ahead? I remembered your husband had different idea at the very beginning, how did you two overcome it? Thanks.

  2. I needed to say that it is nice to know that someone mentioned this as I had a hard time discovering the identical information elsewhere. This is the first website that gave me the information. Thank you.

    1. Thanks for your comment on my blog post. Can I ask what information was the most hopeful to you? I am wondering if it might be a good idea to post some more.
