PDF, 265KB, 26 pages
These documents explain how surrogates and intended parents can start a family through a surrogacy arrangement in England and Wales.
The guidance also sets out best practice for healthcare professionals providing care to people having a child through surrogacy.
The guidance has been updated to include an additional national altruistic surrogacy organisation.
The guidance has been updated to reflect a change in legislation, made in January 2019. The change to the Human Fertilisation & Embryology Act 2008 allowed an individual applicant to obtain a parental order, which transfers legal parenthood after a surrogacy arrangement.
