Episode 39 of the Australian Surrogacy Podcast: Cara, a transgender woman pursuing surrogacy.

In celebrating Transgender Day of Visibility, this podcast episode is with transgender woman Cara.

Cara, together with her partner, is pursuing surrogacy to have a child. They’ve been on this journey for more than two years – their first surrogate was Cara’s sister who was offering both eggs and uterus, but unfortunately they didn’t achieve a pregnancy. Now, they’re pursuing surrogacy with two friends as their egg donor and gestational surrogate. It’s been a long road, but all hope is now on them having a baby with the help of their friends and a clinic.

If you are looking for information about transgender and gender diverse people and fertility and family creation, VARTA has some resources for you.
