My wife and I were married for three years when she found out she had cancer. After a full hysterectomy, we knew there was never any chance of us carrying a child of our own. Leto surrogacy supported us throughout, we have been matched with a surrogate, chosen an egg donor and hope to be pregnant in the next few weeks.”

After so much loss (and a bad experience with another surrogacy agency), I was skeptical and pessimistic and didn’t think we’d ever have a baby. Luckily we found Leto Surrogacy, they were encouraging and reassuring throughout the whole process. The whole staff at Leto Surrogacy were there every step of the way to guide us through the process and always available to answer questions. The surrogacy went smoothly and we are now the proud parents of twins,
Thank you, Leto Surrogacy, for making our dreams come true!

Success Stories

I cannot believe after 3 years of trying to get pregnant, and 6 failed IVF cycles elsewhere, all it took was finding Leto surrogacy and the FIRST time we take MY body out of the equation (by transferring our blasts to our wonderful gestational carrier), we get pregnant! Even at 39!!! When I think of all the time, pain, money and heartbreak we went through, all because no one could figure out what the problem was, it amazes me that you could pinpoint it so easily. I hope more people have the ability to find you before wasting so much time like I did. We may be back someday to try for baby #2. It’s hard to even think of that now, but with my age of 39 it will have to be sooner rather than later. But for now, thank you once again for all you do! What a miracle, miracle, miracle you came into our lives!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My husband and I met leto surrogacy through website and began our journey to become parents through gestational surrogacy. We became pregnant with one healthy baby on the first IVF transfer (coincidentally on my birthday - what a present!). During the pregnancy, our relationship with surrogate and her family exceeded our expectations. Our surrogate delivered a beautiful, healthy baby to his parents. We are overjoyed to finally have our own child. Our experience with surrogacy was such an amazing one that we are proud to share our story and perhaps help others become parents...

I was 29 when I got pregnant, and I had a horrible pregnancy. I was hospitalized four times. It was awful for all of us, and eventually I had to end the pregnancy. We went full-force into surrogacy because we knew it was the only way we could have our own biological kids. Our families and friends were really supportive. Their attitude was, whatever you have to do to make your dreams come true, we're behind you.If we were going to give this much money and faith to an agency, I wanted to make sure they were professional and legit. I called Leto Surrogacy bank and they were really nice and sensitive to my needs. Our surrogate had no problems during the pregnancy. I'd go see her once a month or every three weeks. When our surrogate was still at 30 weeks and 5 days, we got a call saying she was in the hospital and probably delivering the babies that day. They were born really small and premature, but had no problems other than needing to learn to grow and eat.
