Two calls for help for those coming back to Australian government quarantine

To help those parents who are coming back to Australian government 14 days quarantine with their newborns in tow born through surrogacy overseas, (which could be up to 4 weeks quarantine or self-isolation) I ask for two things:

  1. If you are parents who fall into this category,  please reach out to me. Whether you are my clients or not doesn’t matter. While you should be bringing as much baby supplies as possible, including declaring any baby formula you bring into Australia, there are people in Australia who are willing to try and help you with more supplies. It is likely that there will be shortages in Government supplies to you and your babies. By identifying yourselves confidentially to me and my firm, we will be able to pass on your details confidentially to others to help you. I can be contacted on +61 7 3221 9571 or stephen@pageprovan.com.au.  
  2. If you are able to help these parents in any way, please contact  me. At a meeting of Australian surrogacy types today which I chaired, Sam Everingham from Growing Families agreed to put a call out to people who can help. The need I expect will mainly be in Sydney, as our largest gateway, but let’s see. It might be Melbourne or Brisbane or even Perth.  Parents who have endured a battle to get home and have a shortage of supplies need every bit of help that they can get. Again, your involvement will be treated as highly confidential.

Separation – This Can Go a Number of Ways

If you haven’t already done so, the first decision you need to make is whether you want to separate. Separation is not only life-changing and emotionally taxing — it is also stressful, difficult, time-consuming and can be very expensive. In my experience, where one party has decided to separate, the couple will rarely reconcile. The… Read More »Separation – This Can Go a Number of Ways

Getting Married and Having a Child Should Not Be so Hard

Life is grand. I am the luckiest man to live. Due to changes in the law, I have been allowed to marry- and to have a child with the person I love. While getting married and having a child seem self-evident truths, for LGBTIQ+ couples the law (and until 40 years ago, for reproduction, biology)… Read More »Getting Married and Having a Child Should Not Be so Hard
