Surrogacy is a family-building option for single men who want to be dads. However, the legal issues are more complex for UK single parents. We are campaigning to change this, but in the meantime we advise that you get legal advice before embarking on your journey so that you are fully informed.
Once you have clarified the legalities, the first step is to arrange a surrogacy options review with us. We can meet with you face to face at our offices in the New Forest or London, or if this is not possible, we can arrange a Skype or telephone meeting. There will be various issues to think through, including whether to look in the UK or abroad, and who to work with. We will talk through your circumstances, and help you to consider all your options worldwide. Which is the right path for you is a very personal choice, but we will help you to make the right decision with the information that you need at your fingertips.
If you wish, you can register with us to help you with your surrogacy. We offer a matching and management service for surrogacy in the UK (if we have surrogates available) to help you find a UK surrogate and support you through the process, or a surrogacy support service if you have already found a UK surrogate but would like professional support. Given the legal complexities, it is important that any UK surrogate is fully informed about her legal position before agreeing to go ahead. We also offer a management service for US surrogacy which helps you draw together the whole process.
If you wish, you can register with us to help you to find a suitable UK egg donor (either in combination with a surrogacy match, or separately if you already have a surrogate). We offer a personal service for UK egg donation. We provide practical support through the treatment process, acting as a personal go-between where needed, and working with leading UK fertility clinics. We look after your egg donor to make sure that the process is as easy and uncomplicated as possible.
