I am new to Australia and was just wondering how it all works in comparison to New Zealand.
I understand that being able to do surrogacy in Queensland is all really new.
Are you allowed to be a surrogate if you have had c sections with your births?
Do you have to have completed your family?
I only ask as I did a gestational surrogacy in New Zealand.
Went through the ethics commity, councelling sessions (we had intended parents, egg donor & partner, me and my DH), did the whole IVF process to have it not work and had no embryos on ice. Intended parents couldn't afford to do it again, so that is where it ended.
Was quiet deflating to say the least to have that kind of outcome after all the work put in to try and make it work.
But was also very educational and got to know some really nice people in the process.
I have had c sections with all 3 of my children and I have a letter from my obstertrician to say that I have the all clear for any future births to be c sections.
What is the ethics process like here?
Thanks in advance
