The Australian Surrogacy Podcast Episode 80: Ashlee and Chris are intended parents living in Brisbane, Queensland and they’re sharing their story as part of the Stories Series of the Surrogacy Podcast. Ashlee and Chris consider themselves ‘crazy cat people’ and have a cat, Tigger who is 19! They’re home bodies interested in human rights and the environment and they love travelling, and their favourite destination is Japan. Ashlee has a chronic health condition that makes long-distance travel or carrying a baby risky for her. You can find out more about them in the Podcast!

Hi! I’m Sarah Jefford (she/her). I’m a family creation lawyer, practising primarily in surrogacy and donor conception arrangements. 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.
