Surrogacy


Surrogacy law aims to protect the rights of all parties involved – the intended parents, the surrogate, and most importantly, the child. It's designed to ensure a fair and ethical process for everyone. Let's break down how it works in simple terms:

Firstly, surrogacy is governed by the Children's Act of 2005 and the National Health Act. These laws outline the requirements and procedures that must be followed for surrogacy to be legally recognized. One of the key principles is that surrogacy must be altruistic, meaning the surrogate cannot be paid for carrying the baby. However, certain reasonable expenses related to the pregnancy and birth can be covered by the intended parents.

Before any surrogacy arrangement can proceed, the intended parents and surrogate must undergo counselling and obtain legal advice to fully understand their rights, responsibilities, and the implications of the surrogacy process. This is to ensure that everyone involved is fully informed and consenting.

Once both parties are ready to proceed, a surrogacy agreement is drawn up, detailing all aspects of the arrangement including parental rights, medical care, and financial arrangements. This agreement must be approved by the High Court before any medical procedures can take place.

During the pregnancy, the surrogate receives medical care and support to ensure the health and well-being of both her and the baby. After the baby is born, legal procedures are followed to transfer parental rights from the surrogate to the intended parents. This typically involves an application to the High Court for a parental order, which officially recognizes the intended parents as the legal parents of the child.

Overall, surrogacy law in South Africa seeks to balance the rights and interests of all parties involved, while prioritizing the best interests of the child. It's a complex process, but when done ethically and responsibly, surrogacy can offer hope and joy to individuals or couples longing to become parents.
