Anna McKie is the Surrogate/IP Support Manager at Surrogacy Australia, helping to launch the Support Service (SASS) which is now up and running. This episode provides an overview of the SASS, what’s involved and outlining the benefits for surrogates and intended parents.

Surrogacy Australia’s Support Service is a professional service based on best practice models. It is designed to support both surrogates and intended parents in forming well-suited teams and to support those teams over their surrogacy journeys with inbuilt counselling, mentoring and expenses management support.

Anna is also a surrogate, and is preparing to carry for a couple in South Australia. You can hear more about her story in Episode 30.

Hi! I’m Sarah Jefford. I’m a surrogacy, fertility and family lawyer. I’m also an IVF Mum, an egg donor and a traditional surrogate, and I delivered a baby for her Dads in 2018.

I advocate for positive, best practice surrogacy arrangements within Australia, and provide support and education to help intended parents make informed decisions when pursuing overseas surrogacy.
