Episode 39 of the Australian Surrogacy Podcast: Cara. Cara is transgender and pursuing surrogacy in Victoria.
I was excited to be launching this Podcast episode in the same week that we celebrated Transgender Day of Visibility.
Cara, together with her partner, is pursuing surrogacy to have a child. They’ve been on this journey for more than two years – their first surrogate was Cara’s sister who was offering both eggs and uterus, but unfortunately they didn’t achieve a pregnancy. Now, they’re pursuing surrogacy with two friends as their egg donor and gestational surrogate. It’s been a long road, but all hope is now on them having a baby with the help of their friends and a clinic.
If you are transgender or gender diverse, you can explore your surrogacy options here and overseas. Within Australia, intended parents must meet the criteria for surrogacy.
You can find out more information about some of the things we discussed, including:
- Traditional Surrogacy, where a surrogate conceives with her own eggs.
- Surrogacy laws and what to expect from the legal requirements, including the Victorian surrogacy laws.
- If you’re considering becoming a surrogate, you can read more about it and book in for a free consult with me.
- International surrogacy options for Australian intended parents.
You can find more information in the free Surrogacy Handbook, reading articles in the Blog, by listening to more episodes of the Surrogacy Podcast. You can also book in for a consult with me below.
