    Default Hoping to find gestational surrogate in Australia

    Hi,

    the short story is in my siggie. The long story is REALLY long. I have conceived 'naturally' 6 times. Two ended in ectopic, the other four in early miscarriages. I have done IVF with PGD twice, and had only two normal embryos to replace. In that cycle I got a BFP but suffered yet another early miscarriage.

    I have just this month lost my seventh pregnancy (eighth child) and am emotionally exhausted. My husband and I have been together 13 years and really want children, but the prospect of having them is rapidly receding.

    We hope that the timing is right for a generous and incredible person out there who is thinking of becoming a surrogate, and would consider wanting to match with us.

    ETA: as of October 2010, I have found my surro angel. Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far during this journey. xx

    I really wish I could help you, although im only 23 I have wanted to do this for someone and help them have their beautiful little baby, but DP will not allow it he has made it clear if I was going to go down this path we could no longer be together .

    Makes me so sad to read these stories when I could help but if I did I risk my family.

    Hope you find a wonderful person willing to help you.

    Yes, it is legal in many states in Australia. Here is a link from the Reproductive Technology Council of WA which will give you a brief overview of the legalities, at least in this State.

    http://www.rtc.org.au/consumer/surrogacy_wa.html

    I have heard about the Indian option too, but at the moment I would prefer to work with someone in this country if at all possible. I would ideally like a very close relationship with my GS, who would also ideally want to keep a close relationship with our child. For this to happen, it would be better if we lived closer together.
