This is the first of what I hope will be occasional bonus episodes under the 'sit down' umbrella. These will be longer conversations to facilitate the sharing of experience, so that we might all benefit. This episode features Amy White and Katie Hamilton, two sisters from Dublin. After having a hysterectomy at 25 as part of treatment for cervical cancer, Amy's options were limited when it came to having children. After having two children herself, Katie, Amy's sister, felt able to put herself forward as a surrogate. They thought that was the hard bit sorted, but as it turned out, the path to surrogacy in this country does not run smooth. This open and frank discussion sheds a real light on the need for proper legislation when it comes to women's health and surrogacy in Ireland. Our GDPR privacy policy was updated on August 8, 2022.
