Surrogacy

Surrogacy became lawful from June 1st 2010. Surrogacy occurs when a woman (the birth mother) agrees to become pregnant with a child for another person or couple (the intended parents). This means that altruistic (non commercial) surrogacy is lawful subject to certain conditions imposed in the courts. These include counseling and obtaining independent legal advice and a court order called a parentage order.
