Publisher's Summary

An absorbing, insightful and inspiring memoir with contemporary relevance, Labour of Love is a story of love, family, hope, pure selflessness and the joy of giving. 

Shannon Garner met and married the man of her dreams, had two gorgeous children and lived an idyllic life on the New South Wales coast. So why did she decide one day to pursue altruistic surrogacy? And what made her choose a gay male couple from Sydney? 

Labour of Love is Shannon’s honest and engaging story - a roller coaster of emotion set against the backdrop of a highly regulated ‘industry’. This is no account of heartache and conflict but an uplifting story of ‘a collective love’ - one that involves a handful of people from very different walks of life who end up being so much more than family. As Shannon travels her journey of body, mind and soul, she lays bare the loving reality behind surrogacy but also the trouble she found along the way. Finding strength in unexpected places, Shannon pushed past the negativity of others to discover the courage she needed to selflessly carry and birth a baby that will not be her own - and to bring the gift of a precious life and soul into the world, to be loved and cared for by her new adoring parents.

Amazing and just what I needed!

I was looking for a book about surrogacy to understand the process and get a look into the journey. This book fulfilled all my needs! So happy with the entire story! Brought tears to my eyes multiple times. Will DEFINITELY be listening again! I am so eager for my own journey to start. Thank you Shannon for this book and you have given me insight and now I can go into my own journey knowing what to expect (more or less)! ❤️
