The Surrogacy Podcast 23: Rachel. Rachel is a surrogate in Queensland. This is Part 1 in a 3-part episode with Rachel. Rachel has delivered 5 babies for their intended parents, including twins for a gay couple as a traditional surrogate, and three babies for two other sets of intended parents both as a gestational surrogate and a traditional surrogate.
In this episode, Rachel tells her story of starting as an egg donor, and then as a traditional surrogate. There were many bumps in the road, but Rachel’s tenacity and strength are inspiring. Rachel was excited to discover that Queensland had introduced surrogacy laws and took the opportunity to become a surrogate.
