Surrogacy is when one woman (the surrogate) carries and gives birth to a baby for the couple who want to have a child (the commissioning parents.)

The law in relation to surrogacy arrangements in the UK is complicated. and we recommend that you seek legal advice before going ahead.

Whether you intend to be the the surrogate mother or the commissioning parent, you need to know your rights. Surrogacy arrangements do not always go to plan, and the repercussions can be distressing for all involved.  

We can advise you prior to and during the process as also in the event that things do not go to plan.
