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.

What Our Families Are Saying


Mindy, Thank you for the positive thoughts and energy! We are thrilled with how wonderful our very special donor did. I can’t believe it has been 6 months since this journey began-it has gone by fast. Everyone involved has been amazing and so on their game! I have been impressed with how well-oiled of a machine this all is. Being a bit of a control freak I did need to put lots of faith in others, and we have not been disappointed. Thank you for your high-level of professionalism and attentiveness throughout this process. I will let you know more news when I have some to share!

CK from Chicago, IL

Lotus Blossom Consulting has been instrumental in identifying qualified candidates quickly and efficiently. Their compassionate approach and empathic nature has afforded my patients confidence and clarity about the given cycle and assurance that they have selected a like-minded candidate. From diagnosis to treatment the time frame is significantly reduced. I validate the services, the passion and energy that Mindy has for her work.

Brian Kaplan, MD

Fertility Centers of Illinois

Working with Mindy Berkson of Lotus Blossom Consulting was the best decision my husband and I could have made when we started our surrogacy journey. Within a week of engaging Mindy, she found us a wonderful gestational surrogate. In a few short months, we received medical clearance, signed legal contracts and were ready to begin our IVF cycle. A surrogacy cycle requires the coordination of many things, including medical appointments, psychological screenings, insurance review, escrow funding and legal contracts. Under Mindy’s guidance, nothing was overlooked and things moved forward in a timely manner. Mindy’s insider’s approach, knowledge, and experience in the field of Infertility, as well as her ability to relate to emotional clients on a personal level, gave us confidence and a sense of hope throughout the entire process. We highly recommend Mindy Berkson when it comes to the dream of “creating your family.
