FUQUAY-VARINA, N.C. — Heidi Worthington, of Fuquay-Varina, is a pharmacist and a mother of two boys, but she has spent a lot of time pregnant.
“He knows, when mommy’s tummy gets big, that those aren’t my babies. Those aren’t our babies,” she said.
Since 2016, Worthington has carried three babies as a surrogate mother for two couples, including one set of twins.
“You have friends that struggle with infertility. You hear stories, and it is kind of heartbreaking. So, I had a desire to help and do something,” she said.
