The Authority has responsibility under the Assisted Reproductive Treatment Act 2008 to undertake public education about treatment procedures and the best interests of children born as a result of treatment procedures.

VARTA provides independent accurate information about fertility, infertility and assisted reproductive treatment in a number of different ways. Our event formats are designed to help you understand donor-conception as well as exploring up-to-date current ART issues.

It’s all about openness, honesty, how, when and why to tell.

Documenting the story of how we became a family with the help of a donor or surrogate

Knowing what to say about how your family came to be can be a little daunting. However there are many creative ways to start the conversation early. Come along to a fun and interactive workshop with other parents and learn how to create your very own personal family storybook to share with your child.

We welcome parents who have used a donor or surrogate to create their family. Individuals or couples contemplating donor conception or surrogacy may also attend.
