Abstract

A surrogacy arrangement is one in which, before the child is conceived, the commissioning parent/s (also known as intended parent/s) and the surrogate mother (also known as gestational carrier, or birth mother) and her partner (if she has one) agree that the surrogate will become pregnant with the intention that the child will, at birth, be given into the care of the commissioning parent/s to raise as their own.
