Rachell gave birth to a healthy little girl on October 18th, Harper Grace. Rachelle has known Harper’s mum (Jess) since she was born. When Rachell found out about Jess and her husband Justin’s struggles to conceive naturally she offered with the support of her husband Peter and daughters Victoria (16) and Amelia (11) to help them through surrogacy. After one failed attempt Rachell was lucky enough to fall pregnant with Harper in February 2018. It was a difficult pregnancy with morning sickness, Gestational diabetes and high blood pressure . Jess and Justin were extremely supportive. Its only weeks since the birth but Rachell sees Jess and Harper a couple of times a week. Rachell will talk about the emotional, medical and friendship aspects of altruistic surrogacy
