A surrogacy arrangement is the carrying of a pregnancy by a surrogate mother for intended parents. This is often necessary because the woman in a relationship has no uterus or a uterus which is not able to carry a pregnancy. In Gestational surrogacy, pregnancy results from the transfer of an embryo created by in vitro fertilization (IVF) into the surrogate, who would carry the pregnancy for the commissioning parents. This could be done with either the sperm and eggs of the commissioning couple or with donor eggs and / sperm. It is a relatively complex procedure because legal experts have to draw up contracts between the commissioning parents and the surrogate and usually a psychologist is involved as well to make sure that all parties are well aware of the impact of the procedure. In Namibia, the child born by the surrogate has to be adopted by the commissioning parents.
