Preconceived: Five Stories of IVF and Surrogacy is a collection of conversations with women who had very different experiences going through in vitro fertilization for that one outcome: a baby. Laura went through an IVF journey because of her PCOS diagnosis and a series of miscarriages. Kate went through IVF for a reason not commonly talked about. You'll also hear three surrogacy stories: Heidi was a gestational carrier* twice, working through an agency. Her story demonstrates the unpredictability of the process. Libby was a gestational carrier* for a friend without compensation. These stories dismantle our thinking about conception and parenthood. They also provoke, deepen our understanding, and give aspiring parents suffering with infertility, hope. Join Leila Jerusalem as she discovers more about an often silent struggle for many couples, and IVF, miscarriages, surrogacy and the disappointments and triumphs that go with it. *Although Heidi and Libby were gestational carriers we refer to them as surrogates in this episode. These two terms are used interchangeably.
