In this episode we have the absolute pleasure of being joined by “The Real Dads of Adelaide”, Brendan and Matt, to talk about their journey to parenthood via surrogacy.
It might come as no surprise but surrogacy in Australia, or anywhere for that matter, is no simple undertaking. Brendan and Matt’s journey involved an egg donor, a surrogate, 100+ hours of “surro-dating”, failed embryo transfers, emotional highs and lows, a few arguments along the way, a home birth.. and ultimately the arrival of beautiful Baker, their happy healthy little boy.
In this episode we chat with the guys about their story, taking a detailed look at the surrogacy process in general as well as the realities of adoption and fostering, their own personal experience and their advice for people hoping to become parents via a surrogate… plus plenty of laughs and the odd Kardashian anecdote!
