Season 2 Episode 3_ A Surrogate's tale and MRKH Syndrome
Play • 49 min

When you're on a fertility journey the one thing you have in common with the other person is the desire to become parents.  We all have a story to share, even if you don't think it matters, I assure you, your story matters to someone, your journey is important and to share it is the gift so it strengthens the next person to continue and push through.

I had the privilege of hearing and reading Beck and Leonie's story.   It's a journey that would leave you in awe of the special bond that two women will have forever.  Beck has a condition called Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome, which means she was born without a uterus but has her ovaries and can produce eggs.  Her only option to have a family of her own would be via surrogacy.  

Enter Leonie a person with a heart to see her friend experience life to the full, which included having her own family.  These women documented their journey and wrote a book called "Little Ray of Sunshine" to share the ups and downs and give hope to other women diagnosed with MRKH.  There is light, there is hope and there is support.
