A surrogacy agency interviews and evaluates women who would like to be gestational surrogates in order to verify that a woman is in good physical and mental health. This evaluation process is one of the most important reasons for using a surrogacy agency. Surrogates who are matched up with people who cannot have a baby will verify whether they are willing to try IVF or artificial insemination during the initial evaluation process. A reputable fertility clinic should be used for the implantation of a fertilized egg or the insertion of sperm in order to ensure that proper medical procedures are used. Handling Legal Concerns Related to Surrogate Motherhood. States view surrogate motherhood in a variety of ways, and most do not have specific laws addressing the subject. Because of the lack of laws related to situations in which a gestational carrier is used, couples or individuals who expect to be parents could find themselves without their biological child after the carrier refuses to give up parental rights. One way to help reduce the possibility of legal issues arising from surrogate motherhood is through the use of a legal contract.
