Proof of Love Ep. 44 Surrogacy with Alice Hlidkova
On this episode of #ProofofLove, we invited Alice Hlidkova on to discuss the topics of surrogacy and freezing your eggs for future pregnancies.
Freezing eggs is a rising trend and Alice who recently went through the procedure gives us some answers to our questions:
- What does it mean to freeze your eggs and what is the process?
- What is the average age for a woman to freeze her eggs and at what age do the chances of becoming pregnant go down?
- Do your genetics affect the likelihood of getting pregnant?
We also discuss the topic of surrogacy and Alice through her research provides us with some answers to:
- The costs of surrogacy in the U.S.
- What the legal obligations are for being a surrogate
- The role of the surrogate mother in the child’s life
She gives us some background about her new book, „Pretty Girl Complex: The Story of a Superheroine.“ The book she describes is based on a conversation with a woman from the crypto space. The character, Katie Washington is a Miami based dancer who becomes a parent before becoming a surrogate parent to a woman named Amy who couldn’t have a child due to her contracting HIV. Alice shares with us the driving force and motivation for her writing the story about the death of her stepmom at 36 of ovarian cancer who couldn’t have children.
