Growing up with a deep pain for the childless mother, Brianna couldn’t shake the desire to give a woman in need, a child. After birthing her two children, she sought out a surrogacy agency in hopes of both finding the right woman to give of herself to, and also with a secret hope of healing her own birth trauma that she had endured with her first two children. As is so common with surrogate mothers, Brianna tells us of her deep regret. She shares the story of her sheer and total devastation as she realized halfway through her pregnancy that this was indeed her child, and yet had no legal claims to keep him. She tells the heartbreaking story of manufacturing trauma for both herself and her son and why she is now adamantly opposed to the renting of female bodies, and the selling of children.
