The Surrogacy Podcast Episode 56: Jeremy and Shaun. Jeremy and Shaun are gay dads in Victoria, and recently welcomed the birth of their son Elio, via surrogacy. They had a surrogate in Queensland, and together with her wife, the four of them made a great team despite crossing State borders. Jeremy and Shaun also had the help of a friend who was their egg donor. Jeremy and Shaun talk about seeking a surrogate and connecting with people in the Australian Surrogacy Community, and then chance conversations leading them to their surrogate.
