This week, Reshma gets personal about her struggles with fertility and the sisterhood she found through surrogacy. She has a moving conversation with Amber, the woman who gave birth to her newborn baby. The two discuss how their lives have changed, misconceptions about surrogacy and their journey together.
Reshma is currently fighting to legalize gestational surrogacy in New York, a priority Governor Andrew Cuomo shares. If you live in New York, she would be extremely grateful if you emailed your state representative to support the Child-Parent Security Act. If you're on social media, Reshma would also appreciate if you showed support on social media with the hashtag #LoveMakesAFamilyNY.
