A Conversation with Evie Jeang – A Mother Through Surrogacy and Founder of Surrogacy Concierge and Hera

The journey of welcoming my son through surrogacy is one that has left an incredible mark on my life. At the time of graduating from law school, my focus was on establishing myself
professionally, and parenthood seemed like a distant consideration.

However, thanks to the insightful advice of a friend, I made the decision to freeze my eggs—an act for which I will forever be grateful. Little did I know, this decision would not only lead me to the joy of motherhood, but I also found out years later that I had a tumor that might have affected my chances of conceiving naturally.

Inspired by the entire process, I started Surrogacy Concierge. At Surrogacy Concierge, our
expert team oversees the entire process, connecting you with world-class doctors and in-house attorneys with over 16 years of combined experience.

Now, I’m excited to introduce you to Hera. Our mission is to revolutionize and simplify the
surrogacy process, making it more accessible and affordable for individuals from diverse
backgrounds. We stand proudly with the LGBTQ+ community, promoting love and inclusivity in all forms.

I believe in the power of shared experiences to connect us as mothers and as individuals
navigating the beautiful, sometimes challenging journey of parenthood.
