Michael & Wes from 2DadsUK
May 04, 2022 Season 1 Episode 12

Today I’m talking to Michael and Wes, who as well as being wonderful parents to their children are also founders of the very successful parenting-related organisations, Two Dads UK, My Surrogacy Journey and The Modern Family Show. As their TwoDadsUK Instagram profile describes them they are ‘Boss Dads Campaigning for Change’ 

We chat about their experiences of:

  • Becoming parents through UK surrogacy
  • The birth of their 1st baby and navigating a health system not built for surrogacy
  • The birth of their 2nd baby, at the same hospital where policies where updated to be inclusive of the whole birthing team
  • The transition from 1 to 2 children
  • The challenges they face as parents/successful business owners/a couple and how they make sure they make time for themselves too
