New Good Practice Points for health visitors when visiting families where a child is born through surrogacy are published for our Associate members.
This factsheet, written by Cafcass for PHE, explains a couple’s role in surrogacy. Surrogacy is when a woman (the surrogate) agrees to carry and give birth to a baby for a couple who want to have a child (the intended parents). The intended parents may be heterosexual or same-sex, and at least one of the intended parents must be genetically-related to the child.
Please note that this new GPP is available to iHV members only.
