Surrogate Membership Introduction

Why be a Surrogate in the UK?

  • Taking that first step to become a UK surrogate requires you to be as informed and as prepared as you can be. What you are doing, or about to do is one of the most wonderful experiences, and we’re thrilled that you’re considering doing it with us. It’s therefore our job and duty to keep you safe and to ensure you are protected throughout your UK surrogacy journey.

What makes My Surrogacy Journey so different?

  • No other Surrogacy organisation offers the scale of benefits or the level of professional support that My Surrogacy Journey has created in our membership. We have designed our membership based on months of research from UK Surrogates, understanding what they’d like to see, or what tends to get missed. Everyone in our organisation has also been impacted by Surrogacy too, whether they are parents via surrogacy, surrogates themselves or egg donors. We all have lived experience.

    We’re proud to be offering surrogate benefits packed with both emotional, clinical, practical and professional services – for not only you but also your family too. We’ve included essentials such as your independent legal support, your Will, 2 years life insurance, private health screening (full STI blood tests) all carried out from the comfort of your own home. There’s also support from our Surrogate coordinators, a Fertility Nurse, a Midwife, a Fertility Mentor, and a Doula. You even get a Merlin Family Pass for a family of four, to allow your loved ones to still enjoy themselves, whilst you’re busy helping create another wonderful family. There’s also a welcome gift from us, for registering with My Surrogacy Journey – thanks to our friends at Childs Farm Family by Childs Farm.

    Our personal Matching service also means the team around you have your every need considered, keeping you safe and cared for, through each of the milestones of our unique eight step support programme. We don’t own or control the matching process, you and the intended parent(s) do. Any Intended Parent viewing your profile will need your prior consent, ensuring you remain in control of your own surrogate journey. All our Intended Parents are also DBS checked too.

    We’ve thought of everything.
