Claire and Cassandra welcome their daughter Aria earlier this year, with the help of a friend being their sperm donor, and Claire providing the egg and Cass carrying the pregnancy. Some people might call this ‘egg sharing,’ and it’s very different from a surrogacy arrangement as the intention was always for Claire and Cass to be Aria’s parents.

You can read more about donor agreements and donor conception, and if you’re interested in finding out more about donor arrangements then my interview with VARTA Counsellor Kate Bourne is really important.

I provide assistance with egg and sperm donor agreements, and you can book a consult at the link below.

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.
