Double the Joy

"The staff in the NICU were just a dream.  Their kindness and mindfulness shone through.”


As a single mom, Gabriele Jones embarked on her first surrogacy journey almost a decade ago, welcoming baby boy Jago and baby girl Imogen.  After losing Jago to a devastating cancer diagnosis a few years later, Gabriele and Imogen were feeling the immense void.  Gabriele knew it was time to expand her family and try surrogacy again.

Watch the sweet story of how twin boys Tristram and Tobias were delivered at San Antonio via surrogate. Hear how Gabriele gathered information about local hospital maternity services during her surrogate’s pregnancy, and her need to make sure the babies would have access to Level II NICU care (special care nursery).

Gabriele tells her amazing experience with San Antonio NICU staff who went above and beyond to ensure she and her daughter could bond with the babies. Thanks to our Healthy Beginnings Family Care Center, Gabriele left the hospital feeling confident about the tiny lives she was about to bring home. Big sister Imogen also tells us just how she feels about the new additions to the family!
