The 2023 Surrogacy Sisterhood Retreat

The Surrogacy Sisterhood Retreat returns in May 2023!

Surrogacy is a unique and special journey, not just for the intended parents, but for the women privileged to carry a baby for them. We rely on the community of women, who walk this path with us.

The Surrogacy Sisterhood Retreat was established to support surrogates in all parts of their surrogacy experience. Surrogacy is a perpetual journey – so whether you are new to surrogacy or gave birth a long time ago, the Sisterhood is for you. We provide care packages for surrogates who have birthed, and we run Retreats for surrogates to spend time with other surrogates and share their journey.

We’ve run the Surrogacy Sisterhood Retreat in previous years, and we are excited to bring it back for 2023. If you are new to surrogacy, you can find more information in the free Surrogacy Handbook, reading articles in the Blog and by listening to more episodes of the Surrogacy Podcast.

Where
The 2023 Surrogacy Sisterhood Retreat will be in the Goulburn Valley, 2 hours north east of Melbourne, on the land of the Taungurung people. We will be hosted at a beautiful and tranquil retreat location in Eildon.

When

The Retreat will run from Friday 26 May to Sunday 28 May 2023.

Who can come?
The Retreat is exclusively for past, present and future surrogates. Partners, children and intended parents are not included in this event.

Registrations

Registration will open in February 2023.

We are excited to offer all-inclusive tickets which include all meals, accommodation and registration for the retreat. Tickets will be between $700 and $850 per person.

For some people, the tickets and travel will be financially out of reach. We are fundraising so we can reduce the ticket prices and help surrogates attend.

How can I help?
We are fundraising to help cover some of the costs of the Retreat and are grateful for any donations we receive.

You can help by making a donation via the links below. Donations will assist to reduce the overall cost for attendees and ticket prices will be reduced accordingly. Donations will also allow us to cover expenses such as activities at the Retreat and help surrogates attend who may find the costs prohibitive.

Can I buy a ticket for someone else?

Tickets to the Retreat will go on sale in February 2023. You will be able to purchase a ticket for yourself or for someone else. If you want your financial contribution to go toward a particular surrogate, please wait until registrations open in February 2023.

A very big thank you for helping surrogates attend the Retreat.
