The Surrogacy Podcast Episode 100: Mike, Nate and Sarah. We made it to 100 episodes of the Surrogacy Podcast! And it seems only fitting that we revisit the earlier episodes, and in particular my interview with my intended parents, Mike and Nate. When we recorded those first episodes, we were very early in the fourth trimester and and finding our feet as new parents and (old) surrogate. Almost three years later, with a toddler running around and the benefit of hindsight and reflection, we got to chat about our relationships with each other, with Darcey and my children, and what we’ve learned in the past three years. We also got to chat about Mike and Nate’s experience of parenting post-surrogacy, in a two-dad family.

In this episode, we talked about the fourth trimester and the challenges of transitioning from surrogacy to parents and friends.

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.
