Surrogacy is a method of assisted reproduction for people who are either unable to conceive due to medical complications, or any other reason. It is an agreement where a woman agrees to carry a pregnancy for a couple or a person, who will become the baby's parent after birth. Surrogacy has been a controversial issue around the world and involves a lot of complicated contracts that intended parents as well as surrogates need to abide by.
