Ukraine Intended Parent Assistance

Help for Australian intended parents, surrogates and babies in the Ukraine

I have been advised by Sam Everingham, the director of Growing Families as to measures to help Australian intended parents, surrogates and babies in the Ukraine:

As you may be aware, Ukraine is in crisis and most Ukraine surrogacy agencies are currently closed. Hundreds of Ukraine surrogates need support in regard to births and contact with intended parents and safe locations for the newborns or for the pregnant surrogate.

Growing Families is organising with an international security company, a safe hotel for pregnant surrogates and newborns. In this case, we can then more easily evacuate newborns to safe border crossings to meet their parents.

If you or colleagues have any surrogacy clients requiring this support, they need to provide:

    • Intended Parents name
    • Intended Parents email
    • Intended parents’ current location
    • Intended parents’ citizenship
    • Baby due date or birth date
    • Baby/Surrogate current location address
    • Surrogate phone number
    • Whether the surrogate want to move to a safe location or stay in place

Also, a webinar for intended parents with Ukraine pregnancies will be held on 8 March. Register here.
