Surrogacy outside of the UK

Hi all! I thought I would introduce myself before I ask my question, since this is my first time posting here.

I'm Nicole, I'm 36, I've been married to my husband for 9 wonderful years, and we have three children; a 6 year old daughter and 4 year old twin boys. I'm a stay at home mum to the kids, but I'm also a trained primary school teacher. We live in the Lothians area of Scotland, and I've lived in the area for most of my life.

I am currently looking into being a surrogate for my very close friend of 30 years, called Iona. She is coming up for 36, has been married to her husband for 7 years, he's 34, and they have a son, who is also 4. Due to various reasons, Iona had to have a full hysterectomy shortly after the birth of her son, but because they had went through IVF to conceive their son, they still have frozen embryos.

The issue is that they don't live in the UK anymore; they live in the Netherlands, where internal surrogacy is illegal for non-Dutch-citizens, but surrogacy abroad is legal for everyone, which is why I offered in the first place. We've been speaking about this and researching it for about 7 months, and we think we understand the basics of the legal procedure on the Dutch side of things, but we still have no idea how it would work on the British side of things, as regards to being a surrogate for someone that lives abroad.

Does anyone know if you can be a surrogate for someone who lives abroad in the UK, or where I might find this information? I considered joining COTS or SUK, but they seem to deal with only matching surrogates to IPs, and we've already done that part.

Hello, and welcome flowers

May I just suggest that you don't use real names or other very identifiable information in a post - it could compromise your privacy and that of your friends, if you see what I mean.

You could report your own post to MNHQ if you would like them to edit it or they might suggest you copy and paste it and start another thread without the identifying whatnot in it smile

Sorry to be a downer and I hope you get the help you need - someone here is bound to know.

The clinic in the Ukraine is actually more famous for its unethical methods and advertising techniques such as trolling on here pretending to be patients in order to recruit patients rather than it’s treatments and technologies carolynperk.

The Ukrainian clinics are as dodgy as hell and people would be wise to avoid them like the plague so please piss off with your spam.
