Manchester Fertility Offers Advice to the Surrogacy Community via the ‘My Surrogacy Journey’ Directory

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Manchester Fertility is offering surrogacy advice and support to gay, bi, queer and trans men, helping them to navigate their way through their surrogacy journey, as the latest UK clinic to become a directory member of My Surrogacy Journey Directory.

Towards the end of 2022, recognising the growing demand for surrogacy in the UK (parental orders, an order required for surrogacy to become a legal parent, rose by 63% from 2014 to 2021), we began a new partnership with TwoDadsUK® and My Surrogacy Journey® to enhance the support we provide to those seeking surrogacy services.

TwoDadsUK is a specialist independent surrogacy support organisation co-founded by husbands Michael and Wes, aiming to support gay, bi, queer and trans men on their journey to parenthood. They are also the minds behind My Surrogacy Journey® – a leading UK non-profit surrogacy organisation providing professional, practical and emotional support for everyone on a journey through surrogacy.

We are excited to inform everyone that in April, as the Northern & Midlands Centre of Excellence for Surrogacy, Manchester Fertility will have a dedicated entry in the My Surrogacy Journal Directory.

Michael and Wes developed the MSJ Directory to combine clinical education, technology and support, bringing together a team of fertility and surrogacy experts to form one of the most admired advisory boards for surrogacy.

Manchester Fertility is the latest clinic to feature in the directory, which only features services of providers that meet the My Surrogacy Journey Charter. This ensures everyone meets a particular standard of support and behaves transparently. 

If you live in the North or Midlands and are looking for a trusted fertility clinic to support you on your surrogacy journey, you can access our profile from April 2023. Our profile includes the following: –

As one of the pioneers in fertility treatment in the UK, welcoming patients since 1985, we are one of the most experienced and trusted fertility clinics in the UK. A HFEA registered clinic with a reputation for exceptional patient care, we have an excellent team of experts that will provide the best surrogacy experience for intended parents and surrogates. 

We are delighted to be a part of the My Surrogacy Journey Directory. Michael and Wes have created a space where intended parents and surrogates can access professional surrogacy support and guidance. Via The Directory, we can interact with people via video conferencing and direct messaging. As the Northern & Midlands Centre of Excellence for Surrogacy, we are excited to begin supporting the growing number of people needing expert surrogacy services.

The Directory is one of our Member portal’s most valuable and critical parts. Its interactive and intuitive features mean it’s much more than just a Rolodex.

Hi everyone, So I’m Mike, guess I’m the crazy one who had the idea to sell our souls to Social Media and open up our world for everyone to comment on and observe our lives. I spend most nights (when not with Talulah and Duke obviously) with my phone glued to my hand, posting, sharing, liking and filming - all in readiness for Facebook, Insta and now YouTube. It’s getting to be a full time job, which is tricky - as I have one of those! For the last 18 years I have worked within Medical Recruitment and have worked in a variety of high pressured Operational and Business Development roles in London and the Midlands. More recently I am working for myself as it gives me greater flexibility with our new family via my Consultancy firm MJE Consultancy Ltd, where I attract and recruit Fertility Nurses, Embryologists and IVF Consultants and other specialist Doctors, as the Fertility Industry is my passion. I’m obviously one half of TwoDads.U.K and very proud of that fact too, and without doubt being a father is and has been the best job I’ve ever had. Nothing prepares you for the impact these little humans have on us, I know if you’re anything like me, the joy of being a parent just keeps on giving (whilst equally testing me too!). Don’t get me wrong, there’s days where I want to sit on the garage floor and drown myself in Gin but on the whole, life is better than it ever has been...
