On the 01st April 2010, the world of surrogacy changed fundamentally with the introduction of the new Children’s Act. Before the introduction of the new Children’s Act, surrogacy in South Africa had no formal legislation governing it and intended parents and surrogate mothers were left pretty much out in the cold. The new act now clearly and unequivocally defines and protects the rights of the surrogate mother, the intended parents and most importantly, the rights of the unborn child.
It is against this background that Nurture co-founded the Surrogacy Advisory Group (www.surrogacy.co.za), the country’s first non-profit surrogacy support program, offering support and advice to our wonderful surrogate mothers and our hopeful intended parents.
