Michael and Wes are your hosts, and as parents themselves through surrogacy to two children (Talulah is 7 and Duke is 4) they continue to advocate, campaign and strive to improve the landscape of surrogacy in the UK and globally. Addressing safety, exploitation and educating those about the real truths about safer surrogacy. 


Welcome back! We have a fascinating, clinical episode today and it's especially interesting for those exploring treatment and navigating treatment add ons, such as PGT-A (formally PGS) and PGT-M, previously known as preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD).


Our wonderful guest, Dr Lucy Richardson from at Herts and Essex Fertility Centre will help you understand all about PGT-A (formally PGS) and PGT-M, previously known as preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD)
