    Hi, We're newbies!!.. and have just been reading through some of the forums and thought we would join. We have been together for just over 6 years now and are starting to plan on having a family together. We are both 24 years old and are very new to all of this.. We don't really know where to begin, we have been looking up ivf programs but couldn't find much information on same sex pregnancy or parenting in melbourne.
    If anyone could give us some tips of where to begin or who to contact in regards to starting the ivf process using an unknown donar, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Abby & Leah

    Hi Abby & Leah,

    Unless there is a reason for needing to use IVF (eg. infertility) you would usually start with an IUI procedure, that's less invasive and expensive.

    I'd recommend doing a google search for "iui melbourne" and have a look at some of the results.

    I'm going through my first IUI cycle at the moment, I've written about it in my blog (you can get to that from the blog button at the top of my post. Shades has also blogged about her IUI process, I'd recommend reading that as well.

    Good luck!

    Hey there - there are some great resources in Melbourne for queer parenting - google 'Pride and Joy Online' for a little publication for prospective lesbian parents by the Royal Women's in Melbourne.. there's also a group called "maybe baby melbourne", try googling that too. That's all I have for Melbourne specific... As far as general info goes, Leasha has some great threads on here and as Babysteps mentioned, there're a few blogs that you might find interesting

    Wish you all the best, hope that info helps!

    Hi all,
    we are B and K - we have a 6 yr old (who is seven in less than 2 weeks ), a little man who passed away at birth in February and I'm now pregnant again (28 weeks).

    We conceived using a known donor - a close friend of the family who my partner has known since birth. All three of our families are involved and fairly supportive

    Look forward to getting to know you all

    Default Hello

    Helloooooo

    We are Deanna 39 and Sue 48. We have been together for five years 7 months.

    Sue has two bio sons one 29 the other 24 they have one small son each.

    We have Noah together he's 2 and a bit, conceived via a well known donor.

    In October 08 Deanna gave birth to a litle girl (V) who lives in another town with her two dads.

    Sue's son's were from a previous hetero relationship a very shortlived part of her past.

    The other two were DIY AI's.

    Oh if only we could turn back the clock HMMMMMMMMM Knowing what we now Know !!!!

    For 1 thing if we had met the guys who are raising V we would probably have had a tribe of kids with them. They would love another child to the nonbio dad but at 39 I'm not up to the pregnancy thing all over again.

    We had an amazing experience being ambassadors for gay / lesbian surrogacy and were extremely lucky that everyone we encountered through the process were very supportive .

    Cheers
