Like all countries, China is home to folks who long for a child but can’t (or don’t want to) become pregnant. Now, Colorado Springs may offer them a solution.
In November of 2016, Branda Hebert tells the Indy, a man and woman arrived from Beijing just in time to see her give birth to their baby.
“That’s my most favorite time, is when the baby’s born, and they’re watching, and they see their kid for the first time,” she says. “And the look on their faces, you can tell that they’re in love.”
Hebert, a Kum & Go manager who’s now 35, says that was her second time working as a gestational carrier, something she gets paid for but does mostly because she “loves being pregnant,” and helping people who can’t make a baby themselves. She says carrying a child for the Chinese couple wasn’t much different from her first surrogacy for a couple in Texas — other than the distance and language barrier, which wasn’t something email and Google Translate couldn’t fix.
