Hello! I’m new here, although a long time lurker. My story is that I had a late miscarriage last year due to a bad fall, it was my first baby and I was unfortunate enough that the D&C procedure damaged my endometrium. We’ve always dreamt of being parents and are in a place where we're feeling much more positive after the sadness of what happened. And of course, are extremely nervous about looking into surrogacy, having frozen some embryos through IVF. My mum fostered kids when I was growing up and I've always been part of a really child-centred family, which makes it a bit weird to think I won't be carrying my own. I understand that surrogacy is debated hard on Mumsnet but I wanted to post here to get some advice on people's experiences as we want to go in with our eyes open. We've not yet signed up to surrogacy UK but would be really interested to hear any thoughts on the best way to get involved with this world. Are there any good UK-based online groups to discuss this (most of the ones I've seen are based in the US). I'd also love to talk to women who've been through this already as a gestational carrier, or who are considering it. I imagine it must be really intense as well as (hopefully) worthwhile to bring a new life into the world in this way.
Join to connect with others in similar situations and discuss legal processes, costs, well-being, and types of surrogacy.
