A Sylvan Lake woman is lending her voice to dispel the stigma and negative images around surrogacy.
Cindy Pelletier has been a surrogate twice, and is preparing to do so again.
She says becoming a surrogate for another person felt like a calling.
After giving birth to her third child, Pelletier felt her family was complete, but not her time with pregnancy.
“I was able to help others complete their family, I was healthy and able, so I felt like it was something I was supposed to do,” Pelletier said.
Deciding to become a surrogate came with a number of tough conversations, a number of questions, push-back and a lot of stigma.
