“We streamline the process so that more CT Fertility clients can work with doctors in their communities for preliminary screening and monitoring, thereby reduce the expenses and stress of multiple trips to the US."

CT Fertility, a leading provider of egg donation and surrogacy services worldwide, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mrs. Shantai Rivera-Bonilla to the position of Program Coordinator. The appointment comes as CT Fertility has seen a growing number of non-local couples that need the help of a surrogate in order to become parents. “Five years ago we performed 35 annual surrogacy cycles, while that number has more than tripled by 2011,” says Dr. Michael Doyle, the clinic’s medical director. Ms. Rivera-Bonilla's primary focus will be to optimize the experience of these clients, both from within the US and around the world. According to Ms. Rivera-Bonilla, "we work hard to streamline the process so that many more CT Fertility clients, both Americans and international, can now work with doctors in their communities for all the preliminary screening and monitoring work, and thereby reduce the amount of time they need to spend away from home, with the related expenses and stress of multiple trips to the US." Toward that end, CT Fertility has established an extensive network of top quality fertility clinics, labs and support service professionals it selected in primary US and international destinations.

Having worked in the fields of Reproductive Medicine, Egg Donation and Gestational Surrogacy since 1999 Mrs. Rivera-Bonilla brings over 10 years of experience to CT Fertility. In addition to the coordination of IVF/Surrogacy cycles for local and international families, she will also oversee the screening and support provided to all egg donors, and all matters related to FDA compliance.

"It is a true privilege to have joined the CT Fertility team," said Shantai; "being able to assist couples achieve their family creation dreams is an amazing aspect of my day to day job."
According to Dr. Michael Doyle, the Medical Director of CT Fertility, “We are delighted to have Shantai as our Program Coordinator. Her training and experience with screening and supporting egg donors as they get matched to intended parents will greatly affect the journey of our clients, plus she brings to our clinic tremendous communication, management and organizational talents.”

Mrs. Rivera-Bonilla earned both her Associate’s degree and Certificate in Human Services from Housatonic Community College in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
