The Legal situation
There have been many changes to surrogacy laws over the past few years with a number of countries banning surrogacy completely while others have placed restrictions on who can use a Birth Mother.
However, there are still possibilities for couples and singles wishing to start a family of their own. The reality is that Surrogacy is still a ‘grey’ area in some countries, and we try to ensure that our referral programs meet the requirements relevant to the local situation.
For married couples, there are several options which legally allow both Parents’ names on the birth certificate and to legally have a surrogate carry their child. For single parents or same sex couples the opportunities are more restricted but we can usually develop a careful strategy for a successful surrogacy journey for nearly all intending parents.
We want you to feel comfortable in what can be a difficult and complex process so suggest you speak with one of our professional consultants who can advise you on the best approach to take.
We also offer a surrogacy consultancy service for Intending Parents who use our egg donor services but want their eggs shipped to another clinic or country.
