VUmc to Help Gay Couples with Surrogacy

by our Editors in Health & Body , 17 mei 2017

Dit artikel is ook in het Nederlands beschikbaar


The Amsterdam VUmc Hospital is looking into the possibility of helping gay couples with surrogacy. Among gay couples, the interest for this is increasing, but as such it is not possible in the Netherlands still. Now, gay couples need to go abroad for an expensive and often uncertain process.

The Medical Centre of the Vrije Universiteit (VUmc) in Amsterdam is the only hospital that assists childless couples with IVF surrogacy. The VUmc follows strict rules: only when a woman does not have a (functional) uterus or when a pregnancy is life-threatening, is a heterosexual couple eligible for IVF surrogacy.

Twenty-five babies were born this way in the past decade. Gay couples are precluded to use this technique.

Last December, the Staatscommissie Herijking Ouderschap advised to extend the rules surrounding surrogacy, making gay couples eligible as well. It is an option that reflects the views of the NVOG, the professional associations of gynaecologists.

For this reason, the VUmc will now investigate whether gay couples can be assisted as well.
