About the author

EMILY DUBIN FIELD is a mom thanks to IVF and surrogacy. It was a long, hard, and emotional road for her to finally become a mom. She is very open about her fertility journey and feels that, when you go through something difficult in life, who better than you to do something about it for others? She has her MBA in nonprofit management and has dedicated her career to making a difference in the world. Emily and her husband Gregg started Field Fertility in 2016, which is a legal and consulting business working with intended parents, surrogates, egg donors, sperm donors, and embryo donors. Field Fertility is a member of the Society of Ethics of Egg Donation and Surrogacy, American Bar Association, American Society for Reproductive Medicine, Resolve, Men Having Babies, and Family Equality and is a supporter of Feit 4 Kidz Fertility Fund by JFLA and Baby Quest Foundation. Emily may be contacted at: emily@fieldfertility.com and at www.fieldfertility.com.


MELISSA FLECK currently spends her time as a mom to two very active kids, is a wife to a hardworking law enforcement officer, and is an active member of the surrogacy community. She has been working at the Center for Surrogate Parenting, Inc. since 2016, where she is a surrogate case manager. Having been a surrogate herself, she gets to pay it forward by interviewing and guiding potential surrogates on their surrogacy journey, working for the same agency that brought her and her intended parent and coauthor, Emily, together. Melissa also enjoys working out at her local boot camp-style gym, watching her kids play sports, attending Dodgers games, spending time with friends and extended family, and watching as many movies as she can.
