Reciprocal IVF and traditional surrogacy, with Christy Leonardo

Christy is a mother via reciprocal IVF, 3-time traditional carrier and 1-time gestational carrier, and she understands first-hand what it means to experience both failure and success as a surrogate.

Listen as she highlights the main issues around access to infertility treatments and assisted reproductive technologies faced by queer communities in particular, and how these barriers help shape Alcea’s Surrogacy’s stand-out approach.
