We can help you with your UK surrogacy journey. Our matching and management service helps you find a UK surrogate and supports you through the process, all the way to the birth. If you already have a surrogate, you can use our surrogacy support service to help support you in the same way but without the initial matching.
If you decide to work with us, we will talk through the next steps and how our service works in more detail (face to face if we have not already done so). We will take a detailed history for the purposes of matching and talk to you about your specific treatment options, any wider issues and the kind of surrogate you are looking for. We are committed to a safe and legal process and encourage you seek legal advice if you have not already done so.
We aim to match on a personal basis, putting the right people together carefully. There is no fixed waiting list or time frame and it may take some time until we find the right surrogate for you. We meet with all our surrogates and intended parents to explore their expectations and preferences and to create profiles. We also carry out appropriate background and screening checks on everyone. We will have spent time getting to know you and your surrogate will be prepared for the implications of surrogacy. Your profile will be given to surrogate mothers who we think may be a good match, and if they are interested in working with you we will provide you with their profile (on an anonymous basis initially). If you want to meet, we will introduce you. If all goes well, we will help you to build a relationship through calls and face-to-face meetings.
It is important that you take your time to build solid foundations for your surrogacy arrangement and this process might take several months. We want to make sure that everyone is fully informed about what is involved and is committed to the process before going ahead. We will give you information and guidance to help you talk through the practicalities, emotions and long term issues thoroughly so that you can decide on the terms of your surrogacy agreement, which we recommend you put in writing.
We have handpicked the best fertility clinics for surrogacy from across England and Wales to work with, and can recommend a clinic with a proven track record and supportive approach. Alternatively, if you have an existing relationship with a clinic you prefer to work with, we can work with them (if you all agree). We will help ensure your treatment runs smoothly, managing the various steps in the process and being on hand to answer any queries or worries you have.
We will help you and your surrogate to support each other all the way through the pregnancy. We will check in with you all regularly and be on hand to help you with any concerns, no matter how big or small. We will help you to plan for the birth, both practically and emotionally, to ensure that all goes as smoothly as possible.
We will support you and your surrogate in the weeks after the birth, making sure you get settled and everyone has the support they need at this sensitive time. We will also provide you with any information needed for your parental order application (or other legal solution if you do not qualify for a parental order).
We bow out at this stage in terms of our professional service but we always love to stay in touch with the families we have helped to create.
