The concept of a packaged surrogate is not real. A surrogacy relationship is a personal and initmate one, so has to proceed with mutual agreement between both parties.
However the concept of a packaged surrogacy solution is very real. This is about facilitating the appropriate screening of a surrogate, guidance from associated professional in the surrogacy program - the psychologist, surrogacy lawyer, surrogate agency and fertility clinic.
Some crucial learnings regarding surrogacy incorporate the requirement for a surrogate contract to be ratified prior to fertility treatment starting. The surrogate is required to be on suitable medical cover. These are prerequisites.
There is also a requirement to understand the difference between gestational and traditional surrogacy. Gestational surrogacy is where the surrogate is not also donating her eggs, she is purely providing her womb to grow a baby. A traditional surrogate donates her eggs as well so is essentially providing egg donation and surrogacy and fertilisation of eggs is typcially inside the body whereas with a gestational surrogate - fertilisation is inside the body.
In South Africa the birth mother is the legal mother, so typically adoption is required. Recent precents through a formalised court order process are giving parental rights and responsibilities to the commissioning parents. This is a new development in South Africa which makes South Africa a favourable destination for surrogacy and egg donation. Surrogacy solutions in South Africa are offered to locals and people from all over the world.
