“Sharon is truly the expert on all things surrogacy. She knows the topic from the inside out and helped us on so many levels - raising red flags on some things, always lending an ear and helping to assuage our worries on other things. She answered every question I had, both big and small (and silly too) and knew instinctively what we were looking for as well. She made this process a million times easier on us than it would have been without her. She is personable and also has the most integrity of anyone I've ever met and I simply can't recommend her highly enough.”

"We contacted Sharon to help guide us through a potential surrogacy arrangement. Her knowledge base and resource network is outstanding and helped us make an informed decision. She was a highly valuable part of our process and we couldn't have done this without her."

"While meeting with various surrogacy agencies, the question posed to us frequently was what type of relationship we would expect to have with a potential surrogate.  We knew that it would be a long, emotional journey and only hoped that we would connect with an individual who would be patient, kind and reliable. We found all those traits and more in Mary Carter. Our twin babies received wonderful care while carried by Mary. She followed all doctor’s orders and overcame a few hurdles with ease. She is a good communicator and pays attention to details.  It was easy to maintain a respectful relationship with her during the pregnancy and two years later, we are still in touch with each other. We believe that Mary’s good natured personality and desire to bring joy to others are rare traits and we feel lucky to have met her."

"When I introduce Glynna to others I often say that I want to be just like her when I grow up.  I say that in all seriousness because Glynna in so many ways exemplifies the character of Jesus.  Glynna’s selflessness and love for others has resulted in two families having a child of their own even though they could not carry a child themselves.  Glynna is a loving wife, mother and awesome friend.  Her zest for life is contagious to all those who know her.  She is a woman of integrity and Godly character.  Those who work with or are friends with her will find their lives greatly enriched!"

"I knew about Sharon even before I met Sharon. She is someone who truly believes in helping those that need it. She is bright, reliable, responsive and thoughtful. She just "gets it" from a business owner's perspective and knows how to stay current and even ahead of the times. I appreciate all she is involved in and makes it look effortless all the while building relationships that last a lifetime. Thank you for the opportunity."

"Sharon LaMothe is probably one of the most knowledgable fertility consultants in the United States. She is compassionate, hard working, brilliant, and lives for the success of her clients. I am proud to be able to call her a friend and I do not hesitate for a second to recommend her to anyone in need of her services.

"Sharon helped me with the most important endever of my life. As a result of knowing Sharon I have two beautiful children. I could have never done this without her. She made a very difficult task easy. My life is changed for the better, forever. Thank you Sharon"

"Sharon was invaluable in helping us obtain the services of a surrogate mother (carrier). She lead us through the planning, the legal and contractual issues and the logistics, medical care, etc. She was very knowledgeable, efficient, well-organized and personable. All parties were very satisfied with her performance."

"Being a first time mom, I was scared to death of all the "labor unknowns".  I had a thousand questions and fears running through my mind. That's where Glynna came in!  She answered all of my questions, calmed my fears, and prepared me for the birth and delivery. My husband Jared also needed alot of support and help!  She checked in on us during the weeks leading up to the labor.... and when I felt that this baby couldnt come soon enough, she let me know that "this too shall pass.."  Bless her heart, she really hung in there with me!!

When I woke up in the middle of the night and told my husband, Jared, that I thought I was in labor, his first words to me were, "We HAVE to call Glynna NOW!"  We both knew that if Glynna was there, we would both be OK.  As soon as she came to our house, we both felt at ease, as she reassured us, and made us feel more comfortable.  She made sure we were both nourished and hydrated and suggested different postions to ease my discomfort.

When we arrived at the hospital, she was there for us during the difficult contractions, and was able to help me and give me the support I needed to make it through each contraction.  Jared was even able to get a few breaks throughout the labor, knowing that I would be left in good hands and being wonderfully cared through.  Glynna was able to speak for myself and Jared, by communicating our needs to my OB and nurses effectively and positively.  She also was very conscious of mine and my husband's privacy and respected our desicions to have "alone time", and she made sure we knew that she would step out of the room at any time if we needed her to.  (But we didnt)  LOL

Jared and I talk about that day as one of the hardest, but most wonderful day of our lives.  It was such an awesome experience, and we know for a fact that we would not be able to say that if we hadn't had Glynna's help and support!!

She has been such a huge blessing to us and I am so thankful for what she has done for us.  I cannot imagine having any more babies without her!!"

I have known Sharon since 2002 when I embarked on my dream of being a surrogate.  Sharon, along with Surrogacy Consultants of Florida, LLC made those dreams come true.  I went through three attempts but was finally matched with the perfect couple and gave birth to beautiful boy/girl twins on October 26, 2006.  I am still in full contact with my Intended Parents and fully in the twins lives.  Everything from the first phone call to the adoption after their birth, Sharon was with me each step of the way to answer questions, attend doctors visits and even put me up for the night in her own home.  She was in my hospital room hours after I delivered and has been a friend every since our first meeting.

“I met Mary Carter when she was carrying twins during her second gestational surrogacy. Mary impressed me with her devotion to a healthy pregnancy. Mary has always maintained a healthy diet, maintained physical fitness, and held a caring and compassionate attitude. I have seen and heard the joy in her voice when she relayed that the babies had been delivered to loving parents.”

Tina Bruce

"I've known Sharon on a personal & professional level for several years now. She is a wonderful, caring person who exudes professionalism. Sharon's knowledge base is extreme and should there be an answer she doesn't know, she won't stop until she finds it. It is a pleasure to work with her as a professional associate and partner."

"Sharon is great to work with. She has exceptional organizational as well as people skills and can assess and prioritize projects presented to her. She is very detail oriented and will always find a creative solution to a problem."

"When I think of the birth of my second child, Joelle, the "event" was very different from my first experience. The first time around I had complications and my husband was my coach and helper...he did his best but this was a "job" he felt ill equiped for. When I found out I was having another child, I was fearful and asked Glynna to be with me. Her coaching and comforting presence made all the difference. I am thankful for her knowledge of the birth experience and for knowing just what to do to make one of life's most incredible experiences more beautiful."

Former Client for Doula Services
"I have known Mary Carter as a legal professional and as a diligent employee since she began working for me in 1999. Over the years I have also come to know her and her family members on a personal level. Mary has always shown herself to be caring, congenial, responsible and self-motivated. She is a giving person who carries values of integrity and high quality into everything she does, both personally and professionally. If you want assurances that something will be done and done well, Mary is the person to be relied upon to always carry the ball over the finish line. She manages her time well and she works very effectively with persons from diverse backgrounds. I often rely upon Mary for her interpersonal skills when facing challenging opportunities. Several of my clients who have never met Mary in person frequently extend compliments about Mary because they find her phone calls to be warm, friendly and very helpful.  

Another one of Mary’s qualities you may be interested in knowing more about is that she brings a high level of sensitivity, compassion and a calming effect into situations which have delicate emotional implications.  I’ve experienced this when watching Mary work through professional challenges in which her peers have created stressful situations and then turn to Mary to receive help. 

I remain thankful for the professional relationship and friendship which has developed between Mary and myself during the past ten years.  I know that as she brings her experiences in surrogacy into consulting, Mary will be building trusted friendships that will help carry intended parents through a complex process in order to reach their goals."

"Sharon LaMothe was invaluable to me throughout our surrogacy journey. When we first met through a mutual friend I had no idea where to even begin or how to even look for a surrogate. I was nervous, scared and just had no idea where to begin or what to ask - even worse, I didn't know just how much I didn't know.  Since Sharon had been a surrogate herself, she understands the process from the inside - but not just from a surrogate perspective either. Sharon guided me through the process from start to finish and even ended up introducing our surrogate to us in the end. Thanks to her and our wonderful surrogate we now have a 9 week old son - we also gained two additional friendships, Sharon's and our surrogates as well. Thank you SO much Sharon!"

Susanna G.

"I have worked with Sharon on numerous occasions to assist intended parent and surrogates make arrangements to work with each other on surrogacies. This is a highly complex and emotionally charged endeavor which requires sensitivity and attention to personal and professional needs of all parties. I, as an attorney in this field, appreciate and the positive approach and ability to solve problems that all parties inevitably face in such circumstances. In all the cases I have worked with Sharon on, they have been successful and fulfilling for all parties. I look forward to working with her in the future."

"I have known Glynna now for several years.  As the Dean of Wagner Leadership Institute, (WLI) where Glynna studied for her Bachelor's Degree, I have had many personal interactions with her.  As a student, she was required to write reflection papers after every weekend conference.  Glynna's papers were always insightful, honest, well written, and always on time! I have found Glynna to be a compassionate, responsible and thoughtful person.  She is a great manager of time, as this has been demonstrated even by the efficient and loving way she has raised her four children.  I appreciate my friendship with her and consider it an honor to know her." 

Rob DeMatteis
Dean WLI Northeast

"I am honored to write a reference letter for Mary Carter. I have known Mary since 2006. I have worked with her professionally since that time and although our initial interaction began as coworkers, we quickly became friends.

Professionally, Mary is well thought of within our office as she is dependable, consistently organized and detail oriented. Given the demands of Mary’s current position, she remains steadfast in her commitment to her work while working through any and all issues that may arise and to making things happen. Mary also happens to bring a sense of humor to the office which is well appreciated.

More important to me than my professional relationship with Mary is our personal friendship. In Mary, I have found a genuine friend - one that is generous, caring, trustworthy, honest and loyal. Needless to say, I sincerely appreciate my friendship with her and consider this to be a lifelong friendship.

I have known Mary through two surrogacy pregnancies and I have been in awe of Mary’s commitment to help fulfill parents’ dreams of having their own baby. Given Mary’s personality she has maintained an ongoing effortless relationship with the parents before, during and after each of the births. Because Mary has been a surrogate herself a few times, she is completely familiar and knowledgeable about the entire process and is able to understand the various perspectives of this highly emotional and sensitive endeavor.

I could continue with descriptions of Mary’s many other good qualities – her work ethic and her energy, to name a few. Instead, I would simply like to say how much I think of Mary and how strongly I recommend her for this very important journey.
