The Australian Surrogacy Podcast Episode 76: Liz. Liz and her partner have been wanting and trying to grow their family for many years, and eventually it led them down the surrogacy path. They researched many options, and finally landed on surrogacy in Tbilisi, Georgia.

It’s been a long and hard journey to get where they are, but now they’re quietly excited to be expecting twins later this year. COVID-19 has thrown in some extra challenges, but Liz is the ultimate planner and organiser and if anyone’s able to manage it, it’s her.

A few things we discussed in this post, including:

  • If you are considering your options for overseas surrogacy, you can find out more in this post, which includes links to resources that may assist in your research. If you are looking for specific advice about surrogacy in Georgia or any other country, feel free to get in touch.
  • Liz is a singer, songwriter and vocal coach, and has written a song about her infertility journey. You can listen to her song on Soundcloud.
  • Being wary of where you get your information from and making sure you’re not being taken advantage of, particularly with regards to taking advice from consultants and brokers.
  • Liz also mentioned the Facebook group established for Australian intended parents who are exploring Georgia – IP Surrogacy Support Georgia.
