Britain’s first gay surrogate parents to open surrogacy center for same-sex couples

Tony and Barrie Drewitt-Barlow, from Danbury in Essex will open The British Surrogacy Center in February 2011.

It will be based in Essex but have an office in California, and describes itself as a center for all things surrogacy which provides information for same-sex parents . The couple will help match surrogates and egg donors in the US with couples from the UK and Europe.

The Drewitt-Barlow’s have five children which were all conceived with the help of surrogates. Barrie Drewitt-Barlow said Elton John and David Furnish’s decision to use a surrogate would “help the gay parenting cause greatly”.
