Episode 377: Fleeing Ukraine, Infertility, and Gestational Surrogacy with Jessie Boeckmann

You won’t believe my guest’s story today. Jessie Boeckmann flew to Ukraine to bring home her second daughter via gestational surrogate. On Feb 22, her daughter was born in Kyiv and on Feb 24, she started hearing the bombings from the Russian invasion. She knew they had to get out quickly. And so began her journey out of the capital and out of the country with her days old newborn and her husband. She is incredible and you won’t believe her story!
