Her agency doesn't ever charge a separate agency fee for egg donors if a recipient retains the agency for a full-service surrogacy journey. Most importantly, Dawn believes that a healthy surrogate mother produces a healthy surrogate baby, and has created a mandatory wellness program in which each of her agency's surrogate mothers participate to help assure a healthy baby and surrogate mother. Dawn also hosts "The ABCs of Surrogacy" on blogtalkradio.com, a twice weekly program which provides a fascinating comprehensive overview of surrogacy for those considering becoming recipient parents or surrogate mothers, as well as those merely curious about what surrogacy is all about.
