The Surrogacy Podcast Episode 6 (Part2): Felicity. Felicity is an intended parent and pursued American surrogacy after suffering infertility and loss.

This is Part 2 of my interview with Felicity. Make sure to listen to Part 1 first! In that episode we talked about all the research that Felicity did before settling on American surrogacy as the option to grow her family.

I’m often asked about intended parents engaging in commercial surrogacy in America, and what’s involved in bringing the baby home. Felicity gives a great analysis of what’s involved and why she didn’t need to pay expensive lawyers on her return home. You can also read more about commercial surrogacy and parentage orders.

Some issues that we discussed in this Podcast episode:

Sarah has published a book, More Than Just a Baby: A Guide to Surrogacy for Intended Parents and Surrogates, the only guide to surrogacy in Australia.

You can find more information in the free Surrogacy Handbook, reading articles in the Blog, by listening to more episodes of the Surrogacy Podcast. You can also book in for a consult with me below.
