My name is Alice and I am completing a PhD in Sociology at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia. I am looking for intended mothers and surrogates willing to be interviewed about their experience of surrogacy arrangements.

I am seeking to investigate how intended mothers and surrogates establish, negotiate, and maintain relationships over time. Therefore, you may be currently taking part in a surrogacy arrangement or you may have completed one at any time in the past.

I am hoping to speak to intended mothers based in Australia or New Zealand. Please note that this includes women who already have children through surrogacy.

Surrogates that have assisted an intended mother from either of these two countries may reside anywhere in the world.

I would really appreciate your help in completing my research. If you are interested or would like more details, please contact me via email: aliceaickin@swin.edu.au

Kind regards,

Data will be collected for this research until mid-end 2015.
