The Surrogacy Podcast episode 29: Rebecca. Rebecca came to surrogacy after needing an hysterectomy after the birth of her second child. Rebecca found her surrogate in her good friend Katy, after she posted about her journey on Facebook to update family and friends about their situation. Rebecca also found her egg donor, Anna, who you can hear all about in Episode 30 of the Podcast.

Many other women have sadly needed a surrogate after suffering birth trauma and needing an hysterectomy in previous birth. Rebecca posted a ‘family update’ which helped her find a surrogate. You can read more about sharing your story with friends and family so that they understand where you’re up to and why you need a surrogate.

You can read more about finding a surrogate in Australia.

I have published a book, More Than Just a Baby: A Guide to Surrogacy for Intended Parents and Surrogates, the only guide to surrogacy in Australia.

You can find more information in the free Surrogacy Handbook, reading articles in the Blog, by listening to more episodes of the Surrogacy Podcast. You can also book in for a consult with me below, and check out the legal services I provide.
