Louise is co-founder of NestandCo, a specialist agency based in Valencia, Spain which she runs with her business partner Hélène. Nest helps future parents to build their families through surrogacy in a different way to other providers, adapting an American style model to Ukrainian programmes. This ensures IPs have more options to choose from, more involvement in their journeys and most importantly stay in control of their finances by paying trusted local providers directly. Nest also shifts the focus back onto the surrogate and her wellbeing to ensure that the programme is a mutually positive experience for both parents and surrogates. Although Nest was built from the strong ties it has with Ukraine, LGBT+ surrogacy in Mexico and the USA is also possible through a trusted local partner who shares Nest’s vision and values. Complimentary One on One Consultations are available in the lead up to the event.
