Surrogacy is when another person carries and gives birth to a baby for a couple who want to have a child.
Surrogacy is legal in Scotland. However, surrogacy arrangements are unenforceable.
So, even if a contract has been signed and expenses have been paid to the surrogate mother, a surrogacy arrangement is not legally enforceable; the surrogate mother is the child’s legal mother. If the surrogate mother is married, her husband will be the child’s legal father.
