Sarah Aguiar
Little Blessings Surrogacy Consultants

Top Qualities: Articulate, Empathic  

"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!"

Mike Figueras, IP
Former Client

Top Qualities: Knowledgeable, Professional, Creative, and Thorough 
"Recently, Sharon LaMothe posted on the Mental Health Professional Group list serve. Sharon discussed the appropriateness and timeliness of professionally marketing oneself as a psychologist. Such information was sorely lacking in graduate school.  Sharon LaMothe gently nudged me, and so I considered my varied options. Subsequently, Sharon took me in tow, and step by step taught me how to build web and blog sites and how to keep them relevant and original. Ms. LaMothe was kind and never condescending, although I know my questions were very basic: elementary beyond reason. Encouraging me to branch out, Sharon was knowledgeable, professional, creative, and thorough. Sharon helped me frame questions, as when we started, as the saying goes, I hardly knew what I didn't know."
"My blog and web sites both reflect who I am, and are representations of me, not Sharon LaMothe. I see some sites, and don't get a feel for who the person really is, other than a slick version of what the webmaster who built the site thinks that person "ought" to be. In other words, Sharon put aside her own ego, and did not interject herself into my site, nor did she leave me feeling intimidated into going along to get along. Sharon made the entire process feel as though I was talking to an old friend, someone who accepted me and who unconditionally wanted the best outcome for me."
"I have been told by many, many people that I am impatient; type A to the Nth degree, and difficult to deal with, as I have such high standards for myself and others, that surely no one could ever live up to my ideal. I certainly met my match. Sharon told me that her friends call her "triple A." I, not only get the joke, but appreciate her for being that way."
"I would highly recommend her services to those who want a dedicated professional, who is willing to roll up her sleeves and work until the wee hours until you are totally satisfied with the outcome. Sharon is also willing to be called upon as a consultant to me in the future. I will surely contact Ms. LaMothe to help me on the road to a more successful professional life."

Top Qualities: Insight and advice were invaluable, Focus on the relevant issues, True professional, Keen knowledge of Assisted Reproduction Technology 
"I have worked with Sharon in her capacity as co-owner of Surrogacy Consultants of Florida and more recently when I needed advice regarding new web sites for my businesses. Sharon's insight and advice were invaluable.  She was able to focus on the relevant issues and make constructive comments in a timely and diplomatic fashion. Sharon was also instrumental in helping me fine tune the development of a new business venture. I have come to rely on Sharon as a reliable source of information and trusted advisor. She is easily accessible and always willing to help.  Sharon is a true professional and brings with her a keen knowledge of  Assisted Reproduction Technology.  I highly recommend Sharon to anyone looking for advice in the field of third party reproduction."
