The Surrogacy Podcast Episode 3: Troy. In this episode, I interviewed my partner, Troy, about his experience being the partner of a surrogate. I was often asked what Troy thought of me being a surrogate, so I thought it would be good to hear from Troy himself.

I am a surrogate and a surrogacy lawyer living in Melbourne with my family. I’ve been an egg donor, and  in 2015 I decided to become a surrogate. In January 2018 I gave birth to a baby girl, Darcey, for her two dads Mike and Nate (episode 2). You can also read more about me.

I have written a book, More Than Just a Baby: A Guide to Surrogacy for Intended Parents and Surrogates, which is the only guide to surrogacy in Australia, and which you can purchase in hard copy or download to your device.

You might be interested in my interview with Danny, who is also the partner of a surrogate, and about the importance of surrogates having the support of our partners. Other surrogate partners who have appeared on the Podcast include Loz, and Simon.
