Queensland surrogate in bitter feud with biological parents

This is a genuine domestic surrogacy nightmare, and really highlights the importance of all parties receiving high quality counselling and legal advice and completely understanding the implications of undertaking a surrogacy arrangement,  LONG before they commence a surrogacy agreement.  Ultimately, the outcome of this situation will be adverse for the child who has been born at the centre of this legal hurricane. https://m.qt.com.au/news/surrogate-who-held-baby-hostage-banned-from-childs/3242579/

If you are considering either being a surrogate, or are intending parents exploring the option of engaging a surrogate to commence/complete your family, ensure that you receive counselling that includes comprehensive assessment with all parties to minimise the chance of another situation like this eventuating for you.
