Surrogacy

Surrogacy
What is surrogacy?
Surrogacy is when another woman carries and gives birth to a baby for the couple who want to have a child.
The HFEA does not regulate surrogacy. We recommend that you should seek legal advice before proceeding with this option.
Is surrogacy for me?
Surrogacy may be appropriate if you have a medical condition that makes it impossible or dangerous to get pregnant and to give birth.
The type of medical conditions that might make surrogacy necessary for you include:
  • absence or malformation of the womb
  • recurrent pregnancy loss
  • repeated in vitro fertilisation (IVF) implantation failures.
How does surrogacy work?
Full surrogacy (also known as Host or Gestational) - Full surrogacy involves the implantation of an embryo created using either:
  • the eggs and sperm of the intended parents
  • a donated egg fertilised with sperm from the intended father
  • an embryo created using donor eggs and sperm.
Partial surrogacy (also known Straight or Traditional) - Partial surrogacy involves sperm from the intended father and an egg from the surrogate. Here fertilisation is (usually) done by artificial insemination or intrauterine insemination (IUI).
