My name is Leslie Mattern, I am 29 years old and the mother of two beautiful daughters, ages 5 and 3. I have been married for 6.5 years now and am currently working on a degree in Criminalistics.
I decided to become a surrogate because I want to be able to help give a family the same joy I have when spending time with my girls. I can’t imagine what some of these families have gone through trying to conceive a child of their own. I had such wonderful pregnancies and absolutely loved every minute of each one, and I’m looking forward to getting to share the experience with such a wonderful couple.
I get the question “won’t it be hard to give up your baby?”, and the answer is absolutely not! I’m going into this knowing that this baby (or babies) is not mine and getting to spend time with my IPs and experience and share their excitement helps make this journey all the more special, especially since, by a crazy twist of fate, we got matched with family.
