The Surrogacy Podcast Episode 30: Anna. Anna is a surrogate in South Australia, and has also been an egg donor.

“I wanted to do something big in life…”

So decided Anna, a South Australian teacher and mother of two, as she launched herself into the world of egg donation and surrogacy. In this episode, we talked about the legacy we leave our children, and Anna’s journey finding and meeting intended parents and offering to be their surrogate. But like all these things, it didn’t all go smoothly and Anna and her first intended parents parted ways. And whilst they remain friends, Anna was shattered by the break-up. Anna eventually started ‘dating’ new intended parents, and they are now part-way through their journey.

You may be wondering why Anna is dressed as Wonder Woman in the photo. Good question. If you look closely, you’ll see that her costume is made with the packets from IVF medication, which she kept from her egg donation cycles!
