Patrick and his wife began their surrogacy journey in January 2019 after  ovarian cancer. They decided to do commercial surrogacy in Ukraine and worked with Perfect Surrogacy in Odessa. Only one transfer of two embryos was required. Fast-forward to April 2020 and Ukraine had closed its borders, with no commercial flights allowed in. With their twins due on 8th May 2020, the couple were granted last minute travel documents and secured a private flight. Patrick will talk about the birth process during Covid-19, their experience of Ukraine and tips for those to follow
