To progress the rights, social and legal status of Australians using Surrogacy overseas and within Australia.

This website supports Australians who are planning on, or who are already parents via surrogacy arrangements. We are an incorporated not-for-profit association, registered with Consumer Affairs Victoria. General information on altruistic and commercial surrogacy, useful groups and upcoming information and social events are open to all.

To this effect, we aim to work with

  • Politicians (Greens, Labor & Liberals) to educate and lobby for laws which protect surrogates, intending parents and children, in a process which requires careful planning and protections
  • Academics to encourage quality research into outcomes for surrogates and children born through surrogacy
  • Media to dispel mis-conceptions around the motives, the process and the outcomes for intending parents, surrogates and children
