This month we’re talking surrogacy

To coincide with the Families Through Surrogacy conference
in March, we published a special Surrogacy Supplement,
which includes the amazing international story of a couple
who used two surrogates who both then had multiple pregnancies!

• For excerpts of the story go to the Library and search surrogacy
