I just got a message from a close friend who is in a same sex relationship. He is trying to find out about surrogacy and what his options are as he would love to start a family.
I told him that I would find out what I could so now I ask the hub.. What is the best way to find a surrogate in NSW?
I read through some previous threads and saw places like Surrogacy Australia and Fertility Connections listed but when I have gone to the sites I have not been able to figure out exactly how it all works.
How is the relationship established? I know that you can not pay someone to do this but that to me means that it would be even harder to find someone that is happy to help.
Who chooses who? That might sound stupid but my partner and I are doing IVF with a sperm donor and it is obviously very different. We choose the donor and get on with it. In this case does the surrogate look at "candidates" and choose who they feel comfortable helping? They would also need this generous persons eggs so to me that says the surrogate would get to pick who gets their eggs as well... I don't think I've worded this very well but I hope people know what I am trying to say.
So...... I guess I'm looking for a better understanding as I want to help my friend as best as I can. If my partner and I had finished our family then I would offer to help myself but the timing just doesn't work at the moment.
Thanks in advance - any knowledge that you can share will help! I know pretty much nothing about surrogacy!
Two girls, one dream and baby you are it!
