An SBS investigation has found higher numbers of boys than girls being born in some ethnic communities, raising questions about sex selection in Australia.
There are concerns women in some communities in Australia may also face pressure to have sons.
Diya* told SBS radio she resisted finding out the gender of her unborn baby, fearing her family would pressure her to have an abortion.
"They kept forcing me so bad. 'Find out the sex, find out the sex!' If it didn't matter to them they wouldn't have forced me that much," she said.
SBS commissioned data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) in a bid to find out if gender-selective abortions are happening here.
United Nations figures say the standard biological level of sex ratio at birth ranges from 102-to-106 boys for every 100 girls born.
When there are many more boys born than girls, the UN says it suggests sex selection is taking place.
