Episode  43 of the Australian Surrogacy Podcast: Shannon.

Shannon Garner has been a surrogate, not once but twice for a lovely gay couple in NSW. Shannon went on to write about her first surrogacy experience and is now a published author – Labour of Love, published by Simon & Schuster is available online and in book stores.

Shannon is thoughtful and generous, and has contributed countless hours to the surrogacy community over the years. This podcast episode is no different – she has a lovely story to tell, and was kind enough to share it with me.

I advocate for positive, best practice surrogacy arrangements within Australia, and provide support and education to help intended parents make informed decisions when pursuing overseas surrogacy.
