I appreciate there are many posts on this already but some are a bit outdated and laws have recently changed etc. I’m 32 and a single female in the UK. I am wanting to have a baby and start a family.
Im looking for either a surrogate into having IUI using a sperm donor. At the moment I feel very overwhelmed with it all. For the starters the UK costs are extraordinary... specially at the thought of requiring multiple attempts to be successful. I have done some research into IUi abroad as the cost is significantly cheaper.
What do people recommend? Thanks so much L x
Your post isn't quite clear - are you looking for a surrogate ? A donor ? Both ?
Is there a reason you're looking for a surrogate rather than carry the baby yourself ? I'm asking because surrogacy is extremely expensive and also not legal everywhere. It'd be vastly easier to do an IUI with donor sperm (and cheaper) than to look for a surrogate.
Not to mention surrogacy means IVF and egg collection (if you want the baby to have your genes). So even more expensive and invasive.
Those are hugely different things, at opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of cost and complexity of treatment, so I'm not sure I understand enough about your situation to be able to give any useful input. Are you able to tell us more about your thinking here?
