Are you considering surrogacy abroad?
We have launched a brand new ethical pathway with never before seen membership benefits, supporting everyone on an ethical journey through Mexico City. With two options created; those people with embryos frozen, and those needing to create embryos, either with donor eggs or their own.
Family building for British and Irish domiciled intended parents via international surrogacy has evolved rapidly since as recently as 2016, with the removal of India and Thailand from the destination list, both very popular destinations for those turning to surrogacy.
Since then, British and Irish parents sought new options. Ukraine became the rapidly emerging destination for those parents who were working to a specific budget. US was seen as too expensive, as was Canada and this is where Ukraine very quickly became the 3rd most popular destination for heterosexual British IPs.
Since the war in Ukraine this country is no longer a safe pathway to access, and as a result people are turning to a number of other emerging destinations, many of which are exploitative and unsafe for a number of reasons.
Why have we created a new membership?
My Surrogacy Journey wanted to create a supported pathway, and one that hadn’t been created previously to the level of detail we wanted to provide. We wanted to include all the elements in your journey, which even includes the cost of your parental order (via a choice of two UK family law experts) on return to the UK. With greater enhancements of support, previously unseen in destinations such as Ukraine and Georgia.
We wanted a destination that was more inclusive than Ukraine, yet with a similar cost point which included your parental order via the High Court.
For us, creating a safe pathway, that was available to all, that was both ethical and non-exploitative was always our ambition. This reflects in the partners we have engaged; one in particular is a specialist human rights lawyer working to protect women in Mexico City.
We physically met with every single partner during our time in Mexico City, including all medical and fertility professionals, lawyers and even the British Consul at the Embassy in Mexico City, to ensure our pathway is the safest and most efficient option for British intended parents who are choosing a route to parenthood other than in the UK and North America.
