Making the decision to be a surrogate and using your body’s capabilities to expand the joy of other families, on Episode 19 of the Bawdy Love Podcast.

Adrienne Black has a passion for family creation. Her own family is beautiful and thriving, for sure, but her enthusiasm extends beyond. She runs her own surrogacy agency and has a professional background as a doula, childbirth educator and birth assistant. On top of that, she has delivered five children for Intended Parents of two different families.

In this episode, we discuss the process of surrogacy and answer common questions that arise surrounding the topic. We also talk about the emotionally complex relationships between Surrogate, Intended Parents and the new children.

Bawdy Love is a loud declaration that no body is shameful and everybody is worthy of love, acceptance and respect. Join the revolution, and we’ll change the world together.
