View Full Version : Surrogacy - Looking for a Clinic
Want to have a child and looking for somewhere i can ask about surrogacy in Sydney, NSW.
If anyone could help me i would really appreciate it. :)
I had done some research for the hub previously and it doesn't look good:
The Current Legislation
9. There have been 10 committees of inquiry in Australia into surrogacy and related reproductive technologies. All but one of these committees either "expressed grave reservations about the practice or recommended that it be prohibited". It is therefore not surprising that the legislation regulating surrogacy, although not uniform, does contain similarities. In particular the legislation in each jurisdiction:
prevents advertising, thus effectively reducing the spread of people to whom surrogacy is available and preventing the emergence in Australia of commercial surrogacy agencies such as those which exist in the United States;
renders surrogate arrangements unenforceable, with the result that the surrogate mother to either a commercial or an altruistic agreement cannot be required to relinquish custody of the child to the commissioning parents; and
applies not only to the situation where a woman becomes pregnant pursuant to a surrogacy agreement but also to the situation where a woman is already pregnant and then agrees to give the child away.
I don't think that clinics exist in Australia and advertising for surrogates is also illegal so I will close this thread now.
