I have been on my infertility journey for more than 8 years now and I consider surrogacy as my last option. Does anyone know a reliable surrogacy clinic in the UK? I’d also love to know what the process will look like, especially in regards to legal terms.. It must be safe because I don’t want to risk that the surrogate will keep my baby due to a change of heart. Should I contract a lawyer? What do you think?07/19/2020 at 11:11
first of all, surrogacy is possible in the U.K. However, keep in mind that under U.K. law, the surrogate will always be considered the legal mother of the baby. Besides, any surrogacy contract is non-binding, even if the surrogate would sign a waiver. Thus, there is no guarantee for you that the surrogate will hand the baby over to you after birth.

Since you’re looking for a safe destination, the UK is not a suitable option for you. I, therefore, recommend you to use our fertility report. This tool is free of charge and helps you find a suitable destination for surrogacy treatment. It also includes a detailed explanation of the treatment procedure, legal process, a cost estimate, and much more.
Hope this helps you,

Wow, didn’t know this… Thanks for clarification. What do you think about Greece or Ukraine? Financially speaking, these would be the only options for me since surrogacy in the U.S. is way too costly…07/21/2020 at 11:26
we went through surrogacy in the U.K. My sister carried the baby. I wouldn’t have trusted a stranger to carry our child for the above mentioned reason. If you have a family member who would be willing to be a surrogate for you, go for it. Otherwise, I’d recommend you destinations with safe legislation.09/03/2020 at 14:27
