Personally, I found it very hard to access information specific to Australian same-sex couples. This blog post just scratches the surface. The major fertility clinics have some information, but most of it is targeted towards opposite-sex couples experiencing fertility issues.
One of the best resources we found was Rainbow Families Australia. Rainbow Families Australia is not-for-profit organisation that runs playgroups, provides advocacy services, and even seminars on ‘making rainbow families’.
Other resources that might be useful include:
- Australian Institute of Family Studies – Same-sex parents and legal issues;
- IVF Australia;
- City Fertility Centre;
- Monash IVF;
- Rainbow Families Community Facebook Group;
- Lesbian Families, TTC, New beginnings! Facebook Group; and
- Raising Children Website.
