Surrogacy is the greatest gift one women can give another, helping someone who cannot carry a pregnancy by carrying their baby for them. To date, COTS has been the helping hand to over 1000 surrogate births. We ensure you have all the information you need to become a surrogate and guide you step by step through the process. By becoming a surrogate you help to change someones life forever.
FOR INTENDED PARENTS
We provide a truly personal approach and have years of experience in helping new intended parents grow their family through surrogacy. We are on hand to help with any questions or stresses you may have, and provide a friendly helping hand whenever it may be needed. We have also built an online support community to help you through your journey, helping you feel more supported than ever.
COTS was founded in 1988 and now has 1070 babies born. We celebrated our 1000th surrogate birth in August 2016, and our 30th Anniversary in 2018. It is run without financial gain by people dedicated in helping others through surrogacy.
COTS is NOT an American style commercial surrogacy agency. Our prime objective is to pass on our collective experience to surrogates and would be parents, helping them to understand the implications of surrogacy before they enter into an arrangement and to deal with any problems that may arise during it.
Membership fees contribute to the administration and day to day running costs of COTS. These fees would need to be higher were it not for the generosity of our members who have given or continue to give donations. Anyone wishing to join COTS please see our membership page for more information. Intended Parents and surrogates who do not join COTS can only be supported through our message board and Public Forum which is just for general information etc. A wide range of support and advice is available to COTS members.

"After 9 years of waiting and losing 8 embryos along the way, we felt like giving up. Through COTS we met our amazing surrogate, we are enjoying every second of every day, he was certainly worth the wait, here he is"
