Some patients may need to enlist the help of a surrogate in order to carry and give birth to their child and to help on their journey in becoming a family.
At CRGH, we have an experienced and specialist surrogacy team in place to work with our Intended Parents and Surrogates who will assist you with your surrogacy journey.
Our team consists of clinicians, senior nurses and counsellors and we work closely with the main surrogacy organisations in the UK, Brilliant Beginnings, COTS (Childlessness Overcome Through Surrogacy) and Surrogacy UK to ensure that your surrogacy journey with us flows smoothly. We understand that the Surrogacy process can be long and sometimes complicated and the team are on hand to guide you every step of the way.
At CRGH we offer Gestational Surrogacy to our Intended Parents who are about to embark on their surrogacy journey. We will create embryos from the gametes provided by the Intended Parents or with donor eggs in the cases where there may be an egg issue or for our same sex male couples. Those embryos will then be transferred into the uterus of the surrogate to potentially achieve a pregnancy.
If you require the assistance of an egg donor for your treatment, our specialist team can offer and match you with frozen eggs from our donor bank or fresh eggs from an unknown egg donation cycle.
At CRGH we do not have a waiting list for donor eggs and are able to create and store your embryos whilst you start the process of finding a surrogate.
Our dedicated team will support you along the way and are on hand to offer expert advice on the medical, legal and psychological impacts that you may experience during your treatment.
