    23. Surrogacy Through an Agency with Leslie McCaw Carpenter

    Listen in as we chat with our dear friend Leslie McCaw Carpenter! She shares about her first birth, which caused trauma emotionally and physically, which led her to seek surrogacy for her second pregnancy. Leslie discusses using an agency for her surrogacy journey and her advice to parents on the same journey. She gives great tips on looking for a surrogate and how to navigate some of the challenges along the way. We asked her all our questions about the "birth day" with her surrogate as we anticipate John Ryder's birth! She also shares her baby registry "must-haves". We love this insightful discussion with Leslie. Enjoy!

    Guys it’s KELLY GORES. We are a bit starstruck and huge fans of her research. She is the writer & director of the Netflix original documentary, HEAL. In her documentary, You’ll watch recounts of personal healing stories, Scientists and spiritual teachers discuss how thoughts, beliefs, and emotions impact human health. You can go watch the documentary today on Amazon Prime &  Apple TV & Google Play. Kelly and the documentary were a huge encouragement to Sarah during her healing and recovery. In the podcast, we cover multiple topics such as the mind/ body connection, trauma, healing past wounds in order to heal the present, and the fascinating research on radical remission.

    We fell in love with Kelly and think you will too. She also authored the follow up book, HEAL and is host of the new HEAL podcast. Her intention with the HEAL platform is to empower people with knowledge about the incredible ability and intelligence of the human body, and inspire people to expand their belief about what’s possible and become conscious co-creators with life.

    Further in this episode, we discuss the research looking at nine common lifestyle changes of cancer patients who experienced radical remission. Only TWO of them were physical, the rest were spiritual & emotional. It was fascinating research for us and we couldn’t wait to chat more with Kelly. We hope this episodes empowers and encourages you the way it did for us!

AllieSimmons ,

Love this podcast!!

I LOVE these sweet sisters! It is such a sweet podcast filled with so much heart and inspiration. Learning so much about the IVF and the surrogacy process that I never knew. Do yourself a favor and listen! They are amazing!!

Eviemariemc ,

I love it !

I am loving this podcast ! It has humor, vulnerability and education- a little something for everyone. Both Sarah and Cathey bring their own unique perspectives and personalities and they blend together perfectly. I have giggled, teared up and learned a lot so far. I loved hearing more about Lauren Scruggs and her journey and can’t wait for more guests ! It’s so fun to tag along and learn from these gals.

farmer laurel ,

Admirable, informative and so charming!

I get so excited each time there’s a new episode! Even for someone who isn’t pregnant, this is so educational both about general nutrition and all that goes into becoming and being pregnant. The vulnerability is affirming and the conversation is so delightful. I love that I feel part of a conversation with you two each time I listen :)
Baby ballers!
