So my name is Michael Johnson Ellis, and I’m the C0- CEO and Co-Founder of my surrogacy journey.
I’m an expert within surrogacy because not only have I been on the journey through surrogacy with known egg donation and IVF, me and my husband have also established other businesses within the LGBTQ arena and also within the fertility space.
When me and my husband had our own children through surrogacy in the UK, there was a real lack of support, not only within the corporate field, but generally, and there’s a huge misunderstanding within surrogacy. And we wanted to change that by creating a nonprofit organization that would guide and support and take people on a journey to parenthood through surrogacy, through my surrogacy journey.
And it was that lack of current organizations that were there to support people the way we wanted to support everybody with the amount of expert advice, clinical and professional support. And that’s how my surrogacy journey was founded.
I think it’s really important to support employees and employers in the workplace, especially when it comes to surrogacy and family building through surrogacy. I had very little support through my own employers and having children through surrogacy, especially when you’re a non birthing person is really challenging.
So supporting employers and employees that are can grasp surrogacy better is definitely something that we’re passionate in doing in ensuring everyone’s on the same page when it comes to family building through this way. So you can book me or find out more via Bloss.
