Welcome to the Surrogacy and Donor Conception Blog. The posts below are specifically about surrogacy in Australia. You can find more posts on the main Blog page.

I’m Sarah Jefford, an IVF Mum, egg donor, surrogate and family creation (surrogacy and donor conception) lawyer.

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.

If you would like further advice about surrogacy, finding a surrogate, whether you can be a surrogate yourself, international surrogacy options and domestic surrogacy arrangements, you can check out the legal services I offer.
