This infographic addresses questions of what it is like for men in a heterosexual relationship to become fathers through surrogacy. It focuses on dads bonding with their child, being involved in the pregnancy, the relationship with the surrogate, managing feelings of being side-lined and advice men give other men intending to become fathers via this route. The infographic is based on a research project with ten men who were becoming or have become dads through surrogacy; it is endorsed by COTS, the Donor Conception Network and Growing Families.
