The Australian Surrogacy Podcast Episode 70: Michelle.

Michelle is an egg donor and surrogate in New South Wales, and delivered a baby for two dads in 2019. She’s married and has two teenage children, and is gearing up to conceive another baby for the same intended parents in 2020. Michelle and I talked about her egg donations, her relationships with her donor recipients and their children, the surrogacy and the challenges and highlights of her journey.

If you are planning a surrogacy journey, you might like to read about setting expectations between intended parents and surrogate couples. We also talked about what Michelle’s children think of the surrogacy, and you can read more about kids and surrogacy.
