Kate Duffus is pregnant for the fourth time, but the little girl she is carrying will not be her little girl.

Today on Talk of Iowa - surrogacy as an alternative way of starting a family. Host Charity Nebbe talks with two women who have been surrogate mothers, an expectant parent, a psychologist who works with infertile couple, and a lawyer who specializes in family law.

“To have someone reach out and say, ‘Let me help you...’ I just think about how amazing that would be if someone did that for me; and so it’s very easy for me then to be able to offer that to someone else.” - Kate Duffus
