Summary: Your Tummy Time - a surrogacy story will nurture your bond with your baby while you teach and share a healthy approach to life after surrogacy. As the world's first ever personalisable children's book on the subject, it allows you to handwrite both your child's and surrogate's name within the story and provides space to include family photos. This special book invites your child to immerse themselves in the story... their story. Creator and writer, Natalia Padgen, created this book while her surrogate was pregnant with her baby to promote positive memories and experiences, and avoid any awkward 'finding out' moment later in life. Natalia conducted research and consulted with an expert Psychologist and Family Therapist to ensure that content and language is relevant and leads to encouraging experiences. The book has been designed to become part of family history, rather than just a story book.
