In this informative podcast I speak with international Surrogacy Lawyer Stephanie Caballero (The Surrogacy Law Center – California), who dispels the myths and gives us the facts about surrogacy. What it is, what’s involved, how it works as well as the legalities you need to know.
Stephanie and her firm specialise exclusively in Family Formation and Reproductive Law and have represented over 3,500 clients, including Intended Parents, Surrogates and Donors from all over the world through Surrogacy, Egg, Sperm, and Embryo Donation.
Stephanie has appeared on various programs and print media including the Today Show, HuffPost Live, ABC News, BBC Mundo, The Daily Beast, In Touch Magazine, The Bakersfield Californian, The Examiner, Creating a Family radio program, NPR, The Los Angeles Times, The Union Tribune, the L.A. Daily Journal and now Conceive Baby.
Stephanie had her own journey through infertility, after eight years of treatments including having endured more than 10 artificial insemination procedures, three surgeries, three miscarriages, and 13 IVF procedures she finally realised her dream of having children when a surrogate carried her twins. Stephanie also had to adopt her twins because the state where they were born did not recognise surrogacy.
Stephanie now helps other couples realise their family dreams through surrogacy as a member of the American Bar Association, San Diego Bar Association, and American Society of Reproductive Medicine, serving on the board of its Legal Professional Group. Stephanie also serves on the boards of Parents Via Egg Donation (PVED) and Fertile Action.
If you’ve ever wondered about the option of surrogacy, you must listen to this.
