Join as an Intended Parent

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.

Intended parent(s) must have exhausted their options to conceive themselves, and must not be trying to create their family in other ways while undergoing a surrogacy journey (e.g. personal IVF or adoption).

You can check eligibility by completing a simple, confidential form… click the button below.

Criteria for Intended Parents
Unable to Sustain a Pregnancy Personally

Intended mothers must provide evidence that they are unable to carry a pregnancy themselves by way of a letter from their GP. Additional supporting documents from a fertility clinic may be requested.

Relationship Status

If applying as a couple, intended parents must be in a long term relationship or married. Sole, individual parents are now eligible to apply to SurrogacyUK and apply for the parental order.


One intended parent must be genetically related to any baby born through surrogacy, so they must be able to use their own embryos, or only use donor sperm OR donor eggs. Double donation is not allowed.


Intended parents must be domiciled in the UK and, if in a couple, be living together.
