Michelle Griffin

After experiencing two wonderful pregnancies and labours, Michelle began to explore the idea of surrogacy. Not knowing anyone personally in need of a surrogate, she connected with her IPs at a Families Through Surrogacy seminar in Perth. They hit it off straight away and spent the next year ticking off all counseling, psychology assessments, legalities and RTC approval boxes.  In April 2018 they started the IVF process and after two egg retrieval’s and three embryo transfers, Jack was born in March 2019. Michelle will talk about what went to plan and what didnt, dealing with complications, expressing breastmilk and the friendship developed on this extra-ordinary journey
