Our team is passionate about all things surrogacy—in fact, a few of us have been gestational surrogates ourselves!
Serena Lugo, our Vice President & Director of Surrogate Services, is a two-time gestational surrogate, making her uniquely qualified to provide reliable support and exceptional guidance for our surrogates.
Plus, our Assistant Surrogate Screening Coordinator, Andrea Ambrose, is a three-time gestational surrogate. She completed her first surrogacy journey in 2016 and her latest journey in 2020. Andrea brings a personal, compassionate perspective to the surrogate screening process, supporting the surrogate screening team by procuring, reviewing, and coordinating all required documentation from new surrogate applicants.
Dedicated to supporting all Intended Parents, our Founder & Legal Director, Victoria T. Ferrara, forged a path for legal parentage in Connecticut through the historic Supreme Court case of Raftopol v. Ramey. This landmark decision ruled that an Intended Parent could assume all rights to a child through a gestational agreement, regardless of the genetic connection to the child born to the surrogate.
Specializing in assisted reproductive technology law for over 25 years, Ferrara additionally serves as the Founder & Managing Director of her own firm, The Ferrara Law Group, where she focuses on assisted reproductive technology and surrogacy law.
