Join as a Surrogate

SurrogacyUK is a membership based organisation which aims to be open and inclusive to all.

We do, however, have to adhere to certain criteria for both surrogates and intended parent(s). Please do check below that you are currently eligible to join SurrogacyUK.

Surrogate membership to SurrogacyUK is free, and we will cover any additional charges you incur to apply, such as a GP report and your DBS check.

Criteria for Surrogates

Surrogates must be a minimum of 21 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.

Medical Health

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.

Please note: Child-free women who wish to act as surrogates are welcome to apply for membership to SurrogacyUK.
