To support the increasing number of UK families created through surrogacy, we are launching a “Parents through Surrogacy” community, the first of its kind.
The aim is to provide mutual support and knowledge-sharing for all UK based Parents through Surrogacy and their families.
As well as giving surrogate-born children and their parents the opportunity to make friends and have fun with those in similar circumstances, it will provide the tools and discussion forums to help parents talk to their child about their origins.
The first event will be held at the Surrogacy UK spring conference on 18th March 2017 in Northamptonshire.
Sessions will include updates on the latest research into families created through surrogacy, a workshop run together with the Donor Conception Network exploring what parents should consider when talking to their children about their origins, and sessions designed to promote discussion about issues that may arise at different stages of development.
The sessions will be tailored to support all surrogacy-born children, whether born through host or straight surrogacy, or using donor eggs or having same-sex parents.
All parents through surrogacy are welcome to attend, whether your child was born in the UK, through an organisation, or through an independent or international arrangement.
Conference booking will open shortly, please check back for updates.
