Trudy Couldn’t Conceive, Then She Found A Surrogate
Listen now
Get Me Pregnant is Mamamia's podcast that makes understanding assisted fertility easy. Consider this your no-BS guide!  Surrogacy seems like something reserved for celebrities. From Kim Kardashian - West to Cameron Diaz, it feels far out of reach for most regular couples doing assisted fertility.  So it's safe to say it's something most regular people never think they'll do.  Our guest today Trudy, had the same reservations. But after a pregnancy complication, Trudy and her husband were told surrogacy was one of the only options they had left to start a family.  Trudy joins host Leigh Campbell to share the incredible story of how her daughter Bonnie came to be, how they found a surrogate and what happens when your surrogate gets caught overseas in a global pandemic.   And as always, Dr Manuela Toledo joins us for Fact or Fiction, surrogacy edition.  SPECIAL THANKS  To Trudy for coming on the show and sharing her family's story!  CREDITS Host:Leigh Campbell Guest: Dr Manuela Toledo, Fertility Specialist at Tas IVF Producers: Mikayla Floriano Executive Producer: Madeline Joannou CONTACT US Call the pod phone on 02 8999 9386.
