**The SAG is participating in research about the genetic link requirement as detailed in the current legislation and we need your input.**
According to the current law, the gametes (sperm/egg cells) of at least one commissioning parent must be used for the conception of a surrogacy child. Does this genetic link requirement impact on you and your surrogacy plans in any way? Are you a single parent who is unable to do surrogacy because of the ‘genetic link requirement’? If so, please tell us your story by email us to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are currently doing research on this matter, and your input will assist us! All correspondence will be treated as confidential.**
Welcome to the Surrogacy Advisory Group
Welcome to South Africa’s premier advice and support service for women who are considering surrogacy. We want to raise awareness and educate about surrogacy in South Africa and we’d like to help potential surrogate mothers to decide if surrogacy is the correct path for them. We’ll look at your own unique set of circumstances and help you to make the decision that is right for you. And above all, will be a support throughout.
A surrogate is a woman who carries a baby on behalf of future parents who are medically unable to do so. Here at the Surrogacy Advisory Group, we will hold your hand and support you throughout this exciting and life-changing experience.
Altruistic surrogacy is legal in South Africa. It’s governed by a complex set of legal, medical and ethical guidelines and can be frightening. But it’s a wonderful and deeply satisfying experience built on mutual respect, partnership and teamwork; a complex but rewarding process. To make it a positive and enriching experience for all, it needs to be thoroughly understood, so here’s a starting point for your journey.
Surrogacy Advisory Group here to help you, a free service offered to all women in South Africa by women with both personal and professional experience of infertility and surrogacy. We’ll provide you with free support and advice, as well as referrals to our well-established network of top medical, legal and psycho-social surrogacy professionals.
Surrogacy is an enormous commitment on many, many levels and we’ll help you navigate your way through the maze so that you feel informed, committed and supported at all times.
If it were not for women who are willing to perform this ultimate act of human kindness, there would be so many men and women out there who would be forced to face a future of broken hearts and empty arms.

Future parents please read the ‘Do you need a surrogate‘ page to determine whether surrogacy is the right path for you.
Potential surrogates please note that according to the law you must have had a child of your own. If you have not yet had a child, you are unfortunately not eligible to be a surrogate.
