Louise is originally from Dunedin. A lawyer by training, she suffered eight miscarriages and severe complications following some of these. Louise was then lucky enough to carry one boy (now aged 4) before experiencing two more miscarriages and moving onto surrogacy.The second surrogate they worked with, Cecilia, carried their second child – now a healthy 8 month old boy. Louise was able to use her eggs and her husband’s sperm in both pregnancies. She will talk about the US process and the emotional and logistical issues of their journey.
