Episode 38: Miranda

Miranda is an amazing story teller, so you can understand why I barely said a word in this interview. She is an egg donor recipient, a mum through surrogacy, and had a heart transplant not that long ago. She’s inspiring and courageous, and her story will give you goosebumps.

Miranda talks specifically about the Ring Theory, also known as Circle of Grief, which she has adapted for surrogacy. You might like to read more about Ring Theory, developed by psychologist Susan Silk and her friend Barry Goldman. This article also explains how you can draw your own Circle and apply it to your own circumstances. It can be important tool to remember when supporting a surrogate and their family – remember, comfort and love goes in, whilst grief is dumped out.
