Surrogacy: What Do Midwives Need To Know?

13 February 2024

Louisa Ghevaert is delighted to join a panel of speakers on a webinar hosted by the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) on 22 February 2024 entitled “Surrogacy: What Do Midwives Need To Know?”. Louisa’s session will help ensure midwives are aware of the current legal framework around surrogacy in the UK, and proposed legal changes, to enable them to provide appropriate care and support. The webinar will also provide extensive lived experiences of surrogates and intended parents within maternity services with sessions from Sarah Jones from Surrogacy UK and Michael and Wes Johnson-Ellis from My Surrogacy Journey.

Louisa’s session will provide an overview and insight into current surrogacy law and practice in the UK. It will also address the Law Commissions of England, Wales and Scotland’s recommendations for surrogacy law reform in the UK. Sarah Jones will share her experience of being a surrogate five times and her ongoing work supporting surrogates and intended parents with their surrogacy journeys at Surrogacy UK. Michael and Wes Johnson-Ellis will also share their journey to parenthood through surrogacy and their work supporting both surrogates and intended parents at My Surrogacy Journey.
