Considering becoming a surrogate in the UK? COTS can help you to find the right intended parents to help along one of the most important and incredible journeys of their life. We offer continued support to you throughout the entirety of your surrogate journey. We understand that deciding to become a Surrogate is a big decision in your life, so we are committed to making sure your journey is as stress free as possible. Sadly, there is a shortage of UK Surrogates so we need more incredible women to help us give our intended parents the greatest gift they could ever wish for.

What Does It Take To Become A Surrogate?

It takes a kind, generous and compassionate person to become a Surrogate. The process is one of the most selfless and powerful things a women can do. It turns an ordinary couple into a family. We are on hand throughout the whole process to guarantee the wellbeing of both our surrogates & intended parents. With over 1066 babies born to date, COTS UK are one of the leading UK Surrogacy organisations.


Can I Receive Payment As A Surrogate?

Yes it is quite acceptable to be paid reasonable expenses which amount to somewhere in the region of £12,000 to £15,000 being the average. It is very much an individual choice and will depend on your personal circumstances. Once you have chosen the couple you would like to help, then it would all be discussed with a template of an agreement to guide you.

What Are The Requirements To Become A Surrogate?

  • Be fit and healthy (with a BMI between 19 and 28)

  • Be over 21 and under 40

  • Have had a baby already although we do accept women who have chosen never to have a child themselves.

  • Be a non smoker

  • Be willing to undertake treatment at a clinic if you opt for gestational surrogacy.

  • Be willing to do self inseminations if you opt for traditional surrogacy.

       There is a lot to think about and we are here to help you decide if surrogacy is for you.
