Surrogacy Australia conference

Surrogacy Australia National Conference 2013

Melbourne - 6 & 7 April 2013

The Surrogacy Australia Annual Conference will bring you over 23 expert speakers - lawyers, doctors, counsellors, Australian parents, surrogates and children born through surrogacy from Australia, India, the US and Thailand. Whether you are a intended parent, looking into carrying for someone, a family lawyer, or healthcare professional, this program will guarantee much debate and information sharing from some of the leading international speakers on surrogacy practice. To register click here.

I will be one of those speakers.

Other speakers include:

Dr Jadva is a researcher at Cambridge University's Centre for Family Research, who has recently undertaken research as to what impact if any there might be on children conceived through surrogacy.    

Professor Jenni Millbank

Jenni is in my opinion Australia's leading surrogacy academic. She has been at the forefront for many years as to legal issues concerning surrogacy and assisted reproductive technology.

Steve Snyder

Steve is the Chair of the American Bar Association's Assisted Reproductive Technology Committee. An assisted reproductive technology lawyer from Minneapolis, Steve has been a driving force to ensure that American assisted reproductive lawyers are properly educated and focused. He was the organiser of the world's first international surrogacy conference in 2011. [Disclosure: I am one of two international representatives on the Executive Council of Steve's committee.]

Karen Synesiou

Karen is the chief of the Center for Surrogate Parenting, one of the world's leading surrogacy agencies, based in Los Angeles. Her most famous clients include Elton John and his partner David Furnish, and Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman.

John Weltman

John is the founder and President of Circle Surrogacy in Boston. He was the first to establish the right of couples to get insurance coverage for gestational surrogacy in Massachusetts. John and his husband began their surrogacy journey in 1991 and had two boys through the same surrogate - each fathering a biological son.

Dr Michael Feinman

Michael is a renowned fertility doctor from California. Michael developed one of the first anonymous egg donor programs in the world in New York in 1987 and performed one of the first transvaginal ultrasound guided egg retrievals in America.
Amit Karkhanis

Amit is a Mumbai based surrogacy lawyer from India. I had the privilege to listen to Amit last year.

Miranda Montrone

Miranda is a Sydney psychologist who is one of Australia's leading fertility counsellors. She has worked with more than 120 surrogacy cases over a 15 year period.

Dr Shivani Sachdev

Dr Shivani is the founder of SCI Healthcare in New Delhi. This year SCI expects to deliver over 120 babies through surrogacy to intending Australian parents. Dr Shivani and I were both panellists on SBS Insight "Baby Business" in 2011.



  1. Doctors at Kiran Infertility Centre that gets around 120 foreign nationals for Surrogacy say the move will be a drain on the economy. Dr Samit Sekhar, chief embryologist and surrogacy and IVF program director, said that as per the new directive, except a foreign "man and woman" who have been married for a period of at least two years, no one else will be eligible to have an Indian surrogate bear their child.

    "A lot of couples who come to us are heterosexual couples but unmarried. In foreign countries, marriage can be an expensive proposition and several couples refrain from it. To deny them the right to have a baby is not correct," says Dr Sekhar. He adds that reproductive tourism is a win-win situation for everybody as people who cannot conceive get a child and a surrogate earns about Rs 2-3.5 lakh.

  2. who have been married for a period of at surrogacy least two years, no one else will be eligible to have an Indian surrogate bear their child.

  3. Wow, with all these speakers to be present, Australia Annual Conference will be like an Assembly meeting where the ideas of rules were borne! Please do update on this blog site of the conference meeting's details.

  12. The time when an egg is produced from your ovary is called OVULATION. Ovulation usually occurs each month, and at the same time the lining of your womb becomes engorged with blood ready to receive and nourish the expectant embryo, also your bodies hormones begin to rise in preparation of supporting a pregnancy. This is normally in the middle of your monthly cycle (around day 14 if you have a 28 day cycle). Your egg will live for about 12-24 hours after ovulation.

    Economic Surrogacy In India

    IVF Clinic India
    provides a wide variety of infertility treatments ranging from basic infertility diagnosis and treatment to advanced services as
    in vitro fertilization (IVF)
    , intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and assisted hatching, egg donation, gestational surrogacy [with own eggs] and an egg donor assisted surrogacy. We have wide range of egg donors and surrogate mothers listed with our clinic who are medically and physically screened, family history and background checked and psychologically counseled.

  18. The procedure is identical to a frozen thaw embryo transfer ET cycle. For young women, we can transfer the embryos in a natural cycle, 2 days after ovulation. For older women, we need to downregulate with GnRH analog from Day 1, and then prepare the uterus to accept the embryo with exogenous estrogens and progesterone. The procedure is non-surgical, and there is no risk involved.
    What about confidentiality?
    In our clinic, we handle embryo donation like a closed adoption. There is no contact between the donating couple and the recipients, who never see each other. The recipient couple does not even need to inform their obstetrician that they achieved their pregnancy through embryo adoption.

  30. Hey there, just read your blog and have no points to argue. You completely nailed the blog. I agree with every bit you presented in your content. Seriously you deserve an appreciation. The blog was genuinely amazing. Guess what?? I have also written few blogs related to surrogacy. One of them is Surrogacy in India Please do find time to read it and feel free to share your thoughts on it. Some of the surrogacy laws in India have taken complete turns over the past few years, which can be hard for many people to keep a track of. So, if you and your partner find yourself asking ‘Is surrogacy legal in India?’ it still is. However, it is only allowed for couples married over 2 years. Moreover, the couples must be citizens of India. Something that still stands strong is the surrogacy cost in India. Everything, right from flight tickets to medical bills has a much lower cost in India than in other countries. This ensures that the cost of surrogacy in India is almost 1/3rd the cost in developed countries such as USA and UK. Considering the legal system of India, it is vital that all surrogates, as well as intended parents be thoroughly screened for physical and mental health, to make sure they can go through with the process smoothly. Global Star Surrogacy is the world’s leading ethical surrogacy agency, with years of experience in the field, as well as incredible success rates. We aim to give surrogates and intended parents a hassle-free and relaxed surrogacy experience, with our top-notch screening and legal services. Consult our experts and fulfill your dream of parenthood.
