Simplifying the Surrogacy Process for Our Families

“A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success.”  Elbert Hubbard


Lotus Blossom Consulting infertility treatment services are tailored to our clients’ needs. Our fertility consultants map out an individualized plan because each pathway to parenthood is unique. Our guidance and support enables you to build the foundation emotionally, physically and financially while planning for multiple cycles. We help you balance hope with caution.

Initial Consultation

The initial Consultation is to discuss the client’s overall situation, including a discussion of the infertility diagnosis and the treatment options set forth by the physician, as well as success statistics for your diagnosis and age.

We establish a master plan to tackle the pathway to parenthood, taking into consideration emotional tolerances, the total financial budget, time frames and parameters for infertility treatment opportunities. This plan also includes identified milestones for changing treatment and taking other courses of action.

The Infertility Treatment Consultation, as with all of our services, is guided by our Philosophy to provide a realistic balance between hope and practicality given your own individual situation and plan financially for treatment, with resources set aside for multiple cycles. Financial prudence allows clients to move forward with confidence and security. At the end of the Infertility Treatment Consultation, our clients become more empowered to make informed decisions about all aspects of their situation.

Lotus Blossom Infertility Consultants can help refer you to the right fertility centers, fertility specialist and embryologists to obtain a diagnosis and an appropriate infertility treatment plan.

What Our Families & Doctors Are Saying

Always Searching for Better Ways to Make Patients Happy

Dear Mindy, I am so glad that our team was able to meet you in person. We are always searching for better ways to make the patients happy and satisfied when they are going through IVF treatments. Finding you, I feel, is a blessing for us because- like I said many times already- there are times when I will feel like I have hit a road block in dealing with some of the cases. Your experience, knowledge and network may be the thing that will allow us to overcome these obstacles for the well being and success of the patients. My partner feels the same way and told me to let you know that. We will begin to refer patients for consideration of your services.

Embarking on an international surrogacy project can be an expensive, emotionally draining and a hugely challenging process. Aside from dealing with your own emotions, you face the complication of grappling with understanding foreign laws and processes that you’re totally unfamiliar with, which can open up the journey to countless pitfalls – especially when you choose to undertake your journey in the USA. There are many apparent specialists who advertise their services, but my husband and I feel truly blessed to have found Mindy Berkson at Lotus Blossom Consulting. Making a selection on your surrogacy advisor involves a leap of trust, particularly when having to appoint someone overseas who you have met only over Skype. With Mindy, we have never had cause to question our selection. It takes a very special person like Mindy to make the international surrogacy process appear much more straightforward, achievable and not quite as stressful, thanks to: her open and engaging personality; huge professionalism and experience; ‘can-do’ positive attitude, which helps to keep your morale positive; superb connections within the surrogacy sector.  Mindy is also extremely highly-regarded by the surrogates that have worked with her, which stands as a further great testament to her character and integrity. From all our experience, Mindy has helped us, and countless others from around the world, discover that the dream of starting a family can actually be a reality.
