Thanks for what you do

I came across your podcast and social media. I love that you’re passionate about getting the word out on Surrogacy. I am a 1 time Surrogate, single Momma. Super amazing outcome from my journey. I’d love so much to be a part of your platform in anyway I can! If you think I’d be a good fit for an interview the answer is yes yes!! @itstiffanyrae-tiktok

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!

Struggle with host

This podcast has great information but I was thrown off when I realized the picture on the title page of the podcast is not the host. Also as I listened I found the host would constantly reference her surrogacy journey in the middle of interviewing people.
