Alex Whelan

Alex has congenital reproductive abnormalities and adenomyosis. After four years of IVF and two miscarriages of healthy foetuses, she and her husband agreed with their doctor that a live birth was very unlikely. Open about their IVF journey, they went all-in in the search for a surrogate. A friend pulled Alex aside at work and said his wife was seriously considering carrying for them and that we should come to dinner immediately to discuss it. Their beautiful surrogate gave birth to Arthur, 15 months later on the 30th of May. Alex will discuss the process of domestic surrogacy, including IVF, legals, counselling and support.
