Hosted by Hemda Mizrahi
Have you considered exploring surrogacy as family-building option? If you’re experiencing long-term challenges with conception or health issues around carrying a baby to term, this episode will shed light on the surrogacy process-from screening and matching intended parents with surrogates to exploring which agency might be most compatible with your needs. We will also discuss the importance of developing the carrier-intended parent relationship. Acknowledging that the track to parenting can be fraught with anxieties, frustrations, and numerous waiting periods, we’ll discuss managing expectations and engaging support at different stages of the process. This is the first in a three-episode series that will offer you deeper insight into surrogacy. You will hear from former clients and employees of Circle Surrogacy, the largest surrogate parenting agency in the world.
