Tamara & John
Tamara required a surrogate to carry her second child due to a chronic health condition. In 2013, acute early onset Preeclampsia meant her first child was born at just 25 weeks. Given her high blood pressure was chronic, carrying a child again gave Tamara a 60% chance of the same outcome. Instead Tamara’s younger sister offered to carry in 2016 and they commenced the legal, medical and psychological screening. Sarah Bevan Family Lawyers helped Tamara and John with the legal side of the journey.
John & Tamara’s daughter was born in March 2018. Tamara will discuss their journey and the intricacies of keeping surrogacy in the family.
