More Information and Resources

Both surrogates and intended parents (IPs) should be encouraged to do as much research as possible before deciding to join a surrogacy organisation like Surrogacy UK.

The HFEA (Human Fertility & Embryology Authority) has a comprehensive website with information and guidance on surrogacy for health professional and patients.

Members of the BMA can seek advice on any aspect of surrogacy from the BMA Ethics Department. There is a reference book called “Medical Ethics Today’ published by the BMA which contains advice for doctors about surrogacy. There is also a booklet ‘Changing Conceptions of Motherhood’ published by the BMA.

Defence Organisations will generally be happy to advise their members on specific cases.

Resources that we have found useful are:

  • Changing Concepts of Motherhood: Practice of Surrogacy in Britain. BMJ Publishing Group 1996 (out-of-print)
  • Medical Ethics Today – The BMA’s handbook of ethics and law, second edition. Available from Hammicks bookshop
  • http://www.hfea.gov.uk/501.html HFEA Guidance on surrogacy
  • http://www.hfea.gov.uk/399.html#guidanceSection3945: Legal parenthood: surrogacy
  • http://www.nataliegambleassociates.com/page/surogacy/22/ Lots of information regarding surrogacy and the law from two lawyers specialising in the law around infertility and surrogacy.
  • The Royal College of Midwives has published Position Paper No. 18 Surrogacy: Defining Motherhood, August 1997.  It is currently unavailable on their website (October 2011) but is due to be republished there in the future.
