What is Surrogacy?
Surrogacy involves a woman, who is usually supported by a legal contract, to bear the child for another person or persons who will become parents after the birth. We cater to the many types of surrogacy options and are happy to discuss with you.
Domestic Surrogacy – the surrogate mother is resident in Ireland and gives birth in Ireland.
International Surrogacy – the surrogate mother lives outside of Ireland and gives birth outside of this jurisdiction.
Domestic surrogacy at present is unfortunately more complicated than international surrogacy so many Irish couples are choosing to go abroad.
Different countries have different rules on surrogacy. For example, some countries allow commercial contracts in relation to surrogacy which gives couples more peace of mind. Other countries only permit altruistic surrogacy whereby the surrogate cannot be paid except for out of pocket expenses.
