The surrogate's story

When Jaimes arrived I had a very strong sense of him being Michelle’s son. I felt a rush of love, but not maternal love.

It was as if he was a cherished nephew, and it seemed strange to think I’d carried him at all.

I am very proud of my achievement, and the gift I’ve been able to give to Michelle. We still meet up and Jaimes knows who I am, his first legal mummy, and how he came into this world. Surrogacy has been a fantastic experience for me.
