Surrogates in United States
Lauri Berger de Brito is a former television producer, director and writer who spent 6 ½ years trying to create her family. After countless miscarriages and infertility treatments, she had her children through the help of an egg donor and gestational surrogates in United States. As co-director of one of the most respected surrogacy agencies in the world – Los Angeles based Agency for Surrogacy Solutions, Inc., Lauri channels her former professional skills into assisting clients world-wide in creating their own families. For the last 8 years, Lauri and her business partner, Kathryn Kaycoff-Manos, have been assisting clients from around the globe in becoming parents through gestational surrogacy. Lauri now jokingly says she ‘produces’ babies instead of television shows… and is proud of every single one!
In more recent years, Lauri and Kathryn noticed that more and more people were unable to afford the expensive costs of third party reproduction in the United States, so they created GlobalIVF.com to help others navigate their way through very new territory – the world of fertility tourism.
Lauri is a proud member of PVED (board member), ASRM, ESHRE, RESOLVE, AFA and EDSPA. Lauri and Kathryn have become the “go-to” experts for fertility travel in the United States and abroad – appearing on ABC World News Tonight and numerous radio shows including Voice of America Network, Surrogacy Law Radio, Conceive Radio and “Dare To Dream” on KYHY 92.5FM. Lauri has traveled extensively and, along with her business partner, continues to research and explore fertility options/companies/clinics worldwide. Her abstracts on cross-border travel for US residents pursuing surrogacy and egg donation abroad were recently featured at ESHRE in Rome.
