This is episode 48 of the Australian Surrogacy Podcast – the Khale Series.

Katrina Hale is a surrogacy counsellor, and in this episode we talked about Managing our Fears in our surrogacy journeys. Surrogates and intended parents have some predictable and understandable fears – it’s important to know why we have these fears, when they might be triggered, how to manage them and how we can look after ourselves and each other.

Katrina has previously appeared on the Podcast at Episode 32. She has also created a list of Twenty Things to Think About When Choosing Your Surrogacy Relationship.

Hi! I’m Sarah Jefford. I’m a surrogacy, fertility and family lawyer. I’m also an IVF Mum, an egg donor and a traditional surrogate, and I delivered a baby for her Dads in 2018.

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.
