Stacie  is a parent with her husband to three children.  Having completed building her own family, she decided to help others that needed the assistance of a gestational surrogate to become parents.  She proceeded to help two couples become parents by being their gestational surrogate.  Her first set of intended parents were a heterosexual couple for whom she carried twins.  Her second set of intended parents were a same-sex male couple for whom she carried a singleton.  She now works with Oregon Reproductive Medicine sharing her experiences as a gestational surrogate and what this meant for her and her family; advising intended parents on some of the key elements of a successful surrogacy journey and how to build a trusted relationship with their gestational surrogate; and answering the numerous questions and addressing the common fears that many intended parents have when getting started on their own surrogacy journey.
