Jeremy and Shaun are gay dads in Melbourne, and recently welcomed the birth of their son Elio, via surrogacy. They had a surrogate in Queensland, and together with her wife, the four of them made a great team despite crossing State borders.

Jeremy and Shaun also had the help of a friend who was their egg donor.

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.
