Broadway husbands Stephen and Bret recently attended Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut's (RMACT) informative 'Team Day.' It was an opportunity to meet all the professionals who would be involved in their surrogacy journey, from the nurse, to the social worker, to the geneticist, to Dr. Mark Leondires himself.
In this vlog chapter, Stephen and Bret will discuss their experience and interactions, what they learned from the day, and the process of giving their, ahem, "samples."
