In a compelling 45 minutes, [three-time surrogate] Kelly bravely shares her vulnerabilities and hesitations she had as she faced hurdles she didn’t see coming when she signed up to be a surrogate. From firsthand experience she authoritatively exposes the bullying and other abusive dynamics that were set in motion when artificial reproductive operators and their clients became the overseers of her life in such intimate fashion.

Truly riveting . . . after watching Lahl’s thought-provoking and emotionally jarring #BigFertility, it’s abundantly clear that the romanticized imagery often associated with surrogacy is often far from the actual truth and the actual experiences of countless women and families from around the globe.

What could go wrong? As it turns out, almost anything can go wrong and often does. Jennifer Lahl at the Center for Bioethics and Culture has long been sounding alarms about the problems of ethically questionable medical practices, and her latest film, #BigFertility, addresses gestational surrogacy through the long and winding saga of Kelly Martinez, a three-time surrogate.
