The Australian Surrogacy Podcast Episode 20: Sarah and Anna present at the Surrogacy Australia conference. Sarah and Anna presented this session to the Conference in June 2018. You’ll hear from Sarah with a broad overview of the process, and then you’ll hear Anna talking about how to make connections and build strong foundations for a positive surrogacy journey within Australia. Surrogacy is a journey, not a destination, and requires some investment of time and energy to get to know people and consider your options. Surrogacy in Australia is altruistic, and surrogates will want to carry for intended parents who have built a lifelong relationship with them and their families.

I have published a book, More Than Just a Baby: A Guide to Surrogacy for Intended Parents and Surrogates, the only guide to surrogacy in Australia.

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, and check out the legal services I provide.
