Charlotte and her partner turned to surrogacy due to suffering the perfect storm of repeat miscarriages, uterine scarring and crashing fertility levels (4 freeze all cycles, 3 with PGS testing, produced only 1 good embryo). Charlotte also has Ashermans syndrome. As they already had a daughter, Charlotte  felt they wouldn’t find a match in the UK , so felt America was their best bet.  However they were on a mission to do it on a budget.
