Surrogacy Laws in Australia

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 covering surrogacy laws in each state. Generally speaking, we go by the laws where the intended parents live – so you should start with that state or territory, depending on your situation.

For more posts about surrogacy, donor conception, laws, news items, and my personal experiences as a donor and surrogate, you can check out other posts on the main Blog.

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.

Looking for a surrogate and not sure where to start? We Need a Surrogate – What’s Next? And if you have a surrogate or intended parents, you can get started on the surrogacy process.

You can read a broad overview for surrogacy in Australia and how it works.

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.

Sarah can assist with surrogacy arrangements across all states and cross-border arrangements. You can contact me here. All consults are conducted over Zoom and email. You can book in for a consult with me below, and check out the legal services I provide.
