The Surrogacy Podcast Episode 47: Loz. Loz is the partner of a surrogate, Susan, who appears later in the Podcast in Episode 94. Like most partners of a surrogate, Loz is unassuming and might have thought he was just along for the ride when his wife announced she wanted to carry a baby for someone else. And, like most other partners, his role as support person to the surrogate cannot be underestimated. Surrogate partners are as much an equal member of the team as everyone else, and their role and involvement is crucial for a surrogacy arrangement to be successful.

Other Podcast episodes with the partners of surrogates include Troy, Danny and Simon.
