  • Looking for Gestational Surrogate in NSW

    Hi,
    we are in a same sex relationship. My partner and I have been together for 12 years. Towards the end of last year we decided to start growing our family. We have a family member who is going to be the egg donor, and our plan was always to head overseas to find our surrogate.
    However, as we started to look into the process we became aware of the laws changing in NSW where we live, which has now made commercial surrogacy illegal.
    we have looked for loopholes, attended conferences and support groups, and even spoken to a lawyer for advice, but going overseas poses a lot of legal risks.
    One suggested we move interstate, however, this is not an option for me and my partner due to our close bond with our family and friends.
    We have approached a few friends and family if they could be a surrogate for us, however they are all still in the process of having their own children or in the planning stages.
    Someone suggested we try this website, so hoping anyone out there that may be able to help us with our desire to have children.
    happy to chat to anyone if you have questions or know of anyone. If you would like to email us directly you can do this at edley2012@hotmail.com

    Hi Edley,

    It's great to see you here. I don't have much to say but good luck and I hope you find a surrogate that can help you.

    To all potential surrogates out there I can say I have met Edley and his partner and they are fantastic!!! Well worth snapping up as IP's

        Just thought I'd let you know. I had a quick read of the NSW Surrogacy Act today. It actually says in there that it is legal to advertise for an altruistic surrogate if you are a resident of NSW as long as you don't pay for the advertising. So get the word out there!!

          Thanks so much for posting Crystal. The NSW laws state that the surrogate needs to be at least 25and have had a child. So unfortunately doesn't look like a match with us :-(
          Lets keep in touch. Would love to hear how your journey goes xox

                    Unfortunately things didn't work out with our last potential surrogate. So we are very much still hoping someone out there is willing to be our surrogate. If you are the kind of person with a big heart and able to do something truly special, please contact us either through this website or at edley2012@hotmail.com

                          Hi out there. Well - things were going smoothly with our surrogate until we were about to do the transfers of the embryos and unfortunately the surrogate changed her mind. Obviously we are devastated. However, we are not giving up.
                          So we are again on the search for another gestational surrogate. We have our embryos ready. Please email us at edley2012@hotmail.com if you are interested.

                            Hi edley,

                            Just stopping by to say hi and give your ad a bump! I am about to move to Sydney to be closer to our ips when our traditional surrogacy journey begins next year. Would love to be able to catch up and swap stories sometime.
