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 to assist surrogates and intended parents with preparing for a surrogacy birth, with posts about pregnancy and birth planning, hospital arrangements, registering the birth, milk and feeding and the fourth trimester. 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, which you can purchase in paperback or electronic versions.

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.
