Great Information

As a new surrogate applicant the information that is provided within this podcast is so valuable! The details describing the entire process and the things to think about as a surrogate have been so helpful! I look forward to learning more and hopefully continuing my surrogacy journey!

1x GC

So I started listening to this podcast from the beginning and as soon as I hit episode 3 with Brooke I might have to reevaluate 😅 I was a GC for her at her agency, Roots, in 2019 and have nothing nice to say about her. Other than that, first 2 episodes are great!
