Doug Weller

Doug & his partner Brett are gay dads from Melbourne (together 22 years) who now live in Brisbane. Like many Australians, he and his partner used Growing Generations in California for gestational surrogacy. While it took many months to be matched, things then happened very quickly and seven months later their surrogate delivered twins. Their children Leah & Daniel are now 11 year olds! Doug will discuss how US surrogacy works, how they decided on an IVF clinic and how payments, insurance and the US hospital system work
