At Happy Minds Psychology we are passionate advocates for Surrogacy in australia and Donor Conception

Surrogacy in Australia is another way to create a family. If you have experienced infertility of any kind, surrogacy may be something for you to consider. Happy Minds Psychology provides Independant Psychological Assessments for Surrogacy in Victoria and across Australia. 

Altruistic surrogacy is where the surrogate is only compensated for expenses relating to pregnancy. People are beginning to understand that creating a family through surrogacy is possible for them. Because of the generosity of some amazing women, new mums and dads are being created! 

How do i start our surrogacy in Australia journey?

Due to the fact that different states have different legal requirements,  a good place for you to start is by contacting your IVF clinic to discuss surrogacy in Victoria. Your GP in Geelong can give you some recommendations or you can try researching clinics near you. Because of the legal implications for surrogacy in Australia, it is important you speak with a lawyer.  Make sure they are knowledgeable about surrogacy in your state and experienced in working with the complexities of surroacy law in Australia. Specialist Family & Surrogacy lawyers such as Sarah Jefford will be able to guide you through the surrogacy process.  Check out Sarah’s highly informative Surrogacy Podcast here and download her free Surrogacy Handbook here

There are special considerations if you are using donor egg or sperm. Therefore, it can be highly beneficial for you to get some supportive counselling to manage this in a positive way. As well as giving thought to how you may feel about the donation, it is important you work through how you might handle telling your child.

Appointments to assist you with either an independent pre-surrogacy Psychological Assessment or surrogacy support counselling are available now.  If you live in Victoria, your appointments should be in person.
