Join as a Surrogate
Criteria for Surrogates
Surrogates must be a minimum of 21 years old if they already have children. Childfree applicants must be a minimum of 25 years old. There is no maximum age limit for surrogates, however you must be eligible to be treated by a fertility clinic. Criteria for host surrogacy can differ from clinic to clinic, however some UK clinics are happy to treat surrogates in their mid to late 40s.
Surrogates must be healthy enough to carry a pregnancy. GP reports are obtained during the application process however, if you have a medical condition, please do speak to us as it may not hinder your application.
Surrogates should have a healthy BMI and be eligible to be treated by a fertility clinic. As such a surrogate’s BMI should ideally be no higher than 35. If you feel your BMI may hinder your application, please speak to us and we can give you more information as to your options.
Surrogates must be resident in the UK.
