Angela Richardson-Mook is Co-Founder and Executive Director of Alcea Surrogacy, a female owned and operated holistic fertility collective. Angela not only works in the field, she also lives it. She's been a gestational carrier, an egg donor, and a mother via IVF. She has given birth to (wait for it) TEN babies! That includes her own children and as a surrogate to 3 different families. Her goal is to help connect couples who are exploring the option of using a surrogate, with surrogate mothers (or gestational carriers) through Alcea Surrogacy. Angela’s story is incredible, and she has a wealth of knowledge on the topic of surrogacy and answers all of Hilaria and Daphne's questions on the subject. They go over how to get started with the process, the legalities, the financial issues, and so much more. Whether you're interested in using a surrogate, being a surrogate, or just curious about how all of it works, this episode will scratch your itch.
