Kelton Tremellen, Sam Everingham
BACKGROUND: Australian law allows for altruistic surrogacy but prohibits compensation of surrogates beyond their expenses, or the use of professional surrogacy agencies. These restrictions limit local access to surrogacy, driving Australians overseas where they can access commercial surrogacy. AIM: To assess the Australian public's views regarding the use of gestational surrogacy under various social and medical scenarios, together with their level of support for financial compensation of surrogates and the use of professional surrogacy agencies...

REVIEW
Sushena Krishnaswamy, Euan Wallace, Jim Buttery, Michelle Giles
Maternal immunisation is the most effective strategy to reduce infant morbidity and mortality from pertussis infection, and is now standard of care in many countries, including Australia. However, uptake cannot be guaranteed unless the barriers to implementing programs locally are understood. Education and resources for antenatal care providers, embedding vaccination within antenatal care, and provision of culturally appropriate information for pregnant women are integral to a successful antenatal vaccination program...

Praveen H De Silva, Dushyant Maharaj, Fali Langdana
Perimortem caesarean section is a term many obstetricians are familiar with despite few encountering it first-hand. It is estimated the intervention will be needed every 53 000 maternities. Despite this rarity it is vital clinicians are trained in detecting and intervening where perimortem caesarean is required. In New Zealand eight perimortem caesareans were performed from 2006 to 2013. Here we discuss two perimortem caesarean sections performed in two New Zealand hospitals alongside current guidance and recommendations...

April Morrow, Sean Seeho, Kristine Barlow-Stewart, Jane Fleming, Bettina Meiser, Janan Karatas
BACKGROUND: Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) is a molecular diagnostic technique in which embryos are tested for specific genetic abnormalities to enable the selection of those unaffected by the condition. Previous Australian evidence suggested that women who are not informed about PGD by their obstetrician feel disempowered about not being given this option. AIMS: This study aimed to explore obstetrician knowledge regarding PGD and identify barriers to referral...
