The Surrogacy Podcast Episode 31: Emmy. Emmy is a surrogate in Victoria and she carried for Victorian intended parents.

When growing her own family, Emmy struggled with gender disappointment and when she finally fell pregnant with a baby girl, she promised herself that she would repay the universe somehow. She looked for friends and family who might need a surrogate in Victoria, but in the end she joined The Australian Surrogacy Community and found local intended parents Henry and Lisa.

Emmy talks about what attracted her to Henry and Lisa and her experience being their surrogate. Emmy birthed baby Harry for his parents in 2018.

You’ll love Emmy’s candour and humility. She also has great advice for anyone entering the surrogacy world: Get educated. Get active. And be proactive.

Read my tips of ensuring you have a positive surrogacy journey.
