Looking for what others have to say about ARTparenting? We are happy to share links to reviews on other sites from our surrogates and parents.

Outstanding. Simply outstanding. I was a Gestational Surrogate with ARTparenting and the experience was one I will cherish my whole life. Meryl and Julie never once let me feel overwhelmed or like I didn’t know what I was getting into. The support and genuine heartfelt guidance though the journey was wonderful and something I didn’t even know I would need. Helping someone grow their family has been a dream of mine for a very long time. ARTparenting made that dream a reality.

Not only am I lucky to be able to help a family grow, I am also lucky to work with Meryl and her team. Meryl has this way of making you feel like her number one priority at all times. She has a very experienced and knowledgeable team that is a welcome breath of fresh air and kindness.

The whole process of surrogacy can be overwhelming and scary, especially the first time, not knowing what to expect. But with Meryl and her team I am proud to say it was a wonderful, painless and enjoyable process that created many beautiful memories!

Thank you Meryl, I would be honored to work with you again.

After years of having the heartfelt desire to become a gestational surrogate, I began researching surrogacy and found ARTparenting.

Meryl was such an asset and provided a wealth of information. Becoming a surrogate is quite a process, but thankfully I was well prepared as to what to expect. Meryl covered every detail and coordinated all of my communication with the fertility clinic, psychologist and took care of other various needs before finding that special couple. Once I passed all of my screenings, Meryl knew me well and had the perfect pair in mind for me. After our initial “get to know you” call, I knew right away that this was going to be a great match. Reflecting back to that moment brings tears of joy.

Meryl has been my rock, my friend, and a valued resource. I’ve experienced three separate journeys, all ending with great friendships, but each completely unique with different histories, challenges and triumphs of becoming pregnant and final results. I’ve brought three lives into the world for two loving sets of parents with whom I will forever be connected.

As a surrogate, I have been blessed and honored to fulfill the dreams of these families as well as my own. If your heart has the desire to also help complete a family, I encourage you to reach out to Meryl — it will be an amazing experience.

I had the honor of meeting Meryl at her house to start my journey in becoming a surrogate. She guided me through every step of the way and I am proud to have had a little girl for the intended parents. I will be possibly having another transfer this summer and I am very excited. What a joy this was to help a couple bring a sweet baby into this world.

Meryl and Julie, Thank you for the card and beautiful necklace- I appreciate it very much! I can’t say enough that this was a wonderful experience and I’m thankful that you’ve always been so helpful and supportive during the process.

I have known Meryl for about 10 years and am on my fourth surrogacy with her. She listens when you have to vent and is easily accessible. If you have questions or concerns regarding contracts, intended parents, facilities, etc. she is very knowledgeable. She actually makes the whole situation, especially the delivery, easy to deal with because she has everything in place prior to the birth. I would recommend anyone who is interested in surrogacy to Meryl.

Thank you for giving me such a wonderful experience — it will never be forgotten. I couldn’t have picked a better couple for me and Earl to work with. They were so supportive and loving, and I wish them the very best with their little one. They looked so happy!!! I think every time I saw them after the baby was born they were overjoyed and cried — which of course made me cry.

You made the process so easy and uncomplicated and natural. I don’t know how you do it, but I wouldn’t change my decision to be a surrogate for anything. It has brought me to such a wonderful place in my life I won’t be able to repay the gift I have been given. One of the best experiences of my life!!!!

Truly Thankful

I have been so fortunate to be a gestational carrier for three wonderful couples, and currently am working on my fourth and final journey. I have been lucky to find such a connected attorney through all of this in Meryl. She has been very open with answering any questions I have had throughout my pregnancies, and she stayed in contact with me after I gave birth.

I never thought I would experience an event in my life that could match the amazing feeling of becoming a parent. But being able to bring a child into this world to a couple who can’t have a child, was right up there with that amazing feeling. I always tell people that I have been blessed to be able to be a surrogate, because in that delivery room, when you see that couple holding their beautiful baby that you helped to bring into this world, there is no emotion to describe it except pure joy!

I first met Meryl when I contacted her to express my interest in becoming a surrogate. That initial meeting led to meeting my first set of intended parents. We instantly bonded and began our journey together to give them their child. As a new surrogate I was nervous, but Meryl answered all my questions, even when I probably asked the same questions more than once. She was that patient!

I loved my relationship with the intended parents. We successfully delivered twins, a boy and a girl. Both healthy and beautiful. Seeing them with their babies — that was why I chose surrogacy. To be able to help someone complete their family, there is no greater joy.

We still keep in touch and it is hard to believe those babies are now two-year-old toddlers! I am now involved with a new set of intended parents, and hoping to be able to give them what they want so dearly as well — a baby.

The gift of surrogacy is one that has brought me a sense of renewal and hope, to be able to help someone have what they so deeply desire, and Meryl has been the key to making all that happen. Meryl truly cares, is warm, compassionate and always accessible. I am truly blessed to have met her and been allowed to make such an impact on someone’s life.

I just wanted to say thank you for pairing me with L & J. I had a great experience with them. . . definitely a perfect match for me, they were always so caring and understanding and I just wanted to thank you for matching us.

I feel so good when I finish helping families like this, it is so reassuring and gratifying to me that I can do something “more” with my life. It has been a great pleasure working with you.

I am so thankful that when I made the decision to become a surrogate that I found Meryl. She was wonderful from the start and her matching me as a surrogate with intended parents was spot on. We had the best partnership imaginable. I couldn’t have dreamed of having an easier time with my surrogate experience.

Even though we didn’t have any major issues, it was always comforting to know that Meryl was available, day or night, if I needed her for anything. I would (and have) recommend ARTparenting to anyone considering it, either surrogate or parent.

First, let me applaud Meryl for all that she does at ARTparenting. From beginning to end, she was there for me in fulfilling my purpose. Becoming a surrogate had always been a thought in the back of my mind and I’m so grateful that Meryl could make it a reality.

Seeing the look on the IP’s faces when they held their son for the first time was priceless. I’m blessed to have been able to help complete their family. Without a doubt, I’ll do it all over again!
