Sarah Jefford – Surrogate and Lawyer

Sarah speaks regularly on issues of donor conception and altruistic surrogacy. Through her work and advocacy, she promotes best practice altruistic surrogacy arrangements, the best interests of children and the bodily autonomy of women.
Drawing on her experiences as an IVF mum, egg donor, surrogate and lawyer, Sarah wrote More Than Just a Baby: A Guide to Surrogacy for Intended Parents and Surrogates. She says the idea for the book came shortly after she gave birth as a surrogate. “I felt so many powerful and amazing emotions and wondered whether what I was feeling was normal. I remember thinking ‘there really should be a book about this.’ So, I wrote that book.”
