Surrogacy in the UK

Surrogacy in the UK: While altruistic Surrogacy is legal in the UK, there are rules about its practice.

The UK has an established history of supporting uncompensated surrogacy arrangements since at least 1988, principally through the work of consumer-run organizations such as COTS and Surrogacy UK.

Since April 2010 it has also been possible for same-sex couples to undertake surrogacy in the UK, and so best surrogacy agencies in UK can assist same-sex couples to meet potential surrogates and provide them support also.

Increasingly, UK residents also engage in surrogacy in overseas countries, using surrogacy agencies that specialise in sourcing and screening potential surrogates.
