The Australian Surrogacy Podcast Episode 48: Katrina Hale and Managing our Fears in Surrogacy. This is an episode of the the Khale Series, with surrogacy counsellor Katrina Hale. 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.

If you are entering a surrogacy arrangement, you will need to complete surrogacy counselling with a qualified counsellor.

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.

Katrina Hale appears in several episodes of the Podcast, and you can listen to other episodes of the Khale Series.
