The One About Surrogacywith Canadian Fertility Consulting
From The Papaya Podcast: Exploring a topic I thought I understood, we welcome guest Leia Swanberg who is the founder and CEO of CFC — Canadian Fertility Consulting. CFC is a full-service surrogacy agency dedicated to helping couples and individuals who have had difficulty or are unable to conceive, while providing guidance and support while exploring alternative methods to building a family. Founder, Leia, started CFC after having gone through two surrogacies and felt left on her own and alone most of the time. She knew that there was a more intimate way to experience surrogacy. For the past 10 years, CFC has worked to ensure that industry professionals respect, care and support those they work with. Now, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Intended Parents and Surrogates are operating in uncharted waters and this industry, that is an essential service, is being overlooked. In today’s episode we also welcome Molly, a mother through surrogacy as she shares her story. Beautiful, heartwarming, sometimes messy and scary, an adventure in finding a perfect match to build a family.
Warning: this episode contains discussions around fertility and pregnancy loss.
