After 8 years of trying to conceive here in Australia (10 fresh cycles, 2 miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy) Kyla’s doctors decided that given severe adenomyosis coupled with a multitude of other added complications (100% blocked tubes – both sides), low iron, low blood pressure and negative blood to name a few) she was never going to carry a successful pregnancy.
So Kyla and her husband turned to surrogacy. After exhausting all local surrogacy options they looked offshore. In 2012, after countless hours of research, investigation and email communication they engaged in Thailand. Their first fresh cycle resulted in Sabai Brook (now 4.5 years old) being born in January 2013. They began trying for a sibling but it took another 3 fresh cycles, 2 frozen cycles and a miscarriage (all in Thailand) before their second daughter, Isara Lake (nearly 3) was born in October 2014.
Kyla & her husband are still active members of the Surrogacy Community both here in Australia and in Thailand (they return annually to visit the girl’s Tummy Mummies).

Kyla and her family attend catch-ups in SA regularly and have done a number of newspaper, magazine and TV segments highlighting the positive outcomes of surrogacy.
