Hi! I’m Sarah Jefford, an IVF Mum, egg donor, surrogate and family and surrogacy lawyer.

Welcome to the Surrogacy and Donor Conception Blog. The posts below are specifically with regards to altruistic surrogacy. You can find more posts on the main Blog page.

I have written a book, More Than Just a Baby: A Guide to Surrogacy for Intended Parents and Surrogates, the only guide to surrogacy in Australia.

You can also contact me and follow me on social media and make sure to listen to the Surrogacy Podcast, which shares stories from intended parents, surrogates and industry professionals.
