The National Fertility Society has set up a Surrogacy branch for intended parents and surrogates
If you are an intended parent the membership cost is £750 to initially join if you are looking for a surrogate, or £500 if you supply your own surrogate. NFS is a not for profit agency, these fees cover information sessions, DBS checks. Regular social meetings and a annual conference. Surrogates do not pay a fee to join but there is still an application form for you to complete, we will also need a couple of things like your GP letter and a DBS to be completed. NFS has a fantastic executive team on hand from Doctors, Nurses, Embryologists and Consultants to offer medical information. NFS also has a team of Qualified Specialist Counsellors to offer one to one support. We also have a legal team on hand for advice. You will never be asked to pay for any advice or information this is all covered by the membership fee.
The National Fertility Society provides a platform for Surrogates and Intended Parents to meet and match for their surrogacy journey. NFS Surrogacy provide support and implications counselling, with clinic reports, help with parental orders and guidance on wills and life insurance. Access to a closed FB group to meet and match with potential surrogates or IP’s, Social events and annual conference.
NFS also has surrogacy pathways for patients in Europe and the USA. NFS feel very strongly about the safety of the Intended Parents, surrogate and baby. We do not endorse any clinics that have not been visited by 2 members of the NFS executive team. We will not recommend anywhere that is not regulated and transparent in their dealings with the IP’s, who respect the surrogates and treat them well.
