  • surrogate mother

    Surrogacy is allowed in South Africa and is regulated by the Children’s Act.

    We received the following question during the course of last week

     “I have been happily married for the last 7 years. However; I am medically unable to produce a child. My husband and I have talked about the option of both adoption and surrogacy. We have decided to go the surrogacy route if we can, and have discussed it with my sister. She is older than me has two children and does not want any more of her own and is willing to consider it. We’ve not yet spoken about costs or payment for her to do this, because we’re not sure whether surrogacy is even allowed in South Africa. Is surrogacy an option we can consider? Your advice would be much appreciated”
