Welcome to the Surrogacy Podcast, sharing stories from intended parents and surrogates from around Australia.
You can listen to Surrogacy Podcast episodes with intended parents, surrogates, the partners of surrogates, and interviews with surrogacy counsellor Katrina Hale. You can scroll through, or search for episodes based on particular topics or keywords in the drop down menus below. Or, start at the beginning and work your way through!
If you would like to find out more about surrogacy and donor conception in Australia, be sure to download the free Surrogacy Handbook and check out the Blog for more information.
I have written a book that you can purchase, More Than Just a Baby: A Guide to Surrogacy for Intended Parents and Surrogates, the only guide to surrogacy in Australia.
You can also book in for a consult with me and check out the legal services I provide.
