Surrogacy motherhood provides an option for infertile couples to have a genetically related child of their own. However, in jurisdictions where surrogacy motherhood are not legally accepted, couples deliberately turn to other jurisdictions to conclude a surrogacy agreement where it is in fact legal to do so. When different jurisdictions are involved in one surrogacy motherhood agreement, several problems arise, especially due to the lack of regulation on an international level. These poblems must therefore be resolved by the implementation of an international document or agreement. This discussion will therefore firstly focus on the national position regarding surrogacy motherhood in the South African content to determine whether South Africa will benefit from the implementation of a proposed international document or agreement. Secondly, the research focus on international surrogacy and evaluate the concept to identify the problems arising as a result thereof. Thirdly, the contents of the proposed international document or agreement will be discussed in depth in order to determine what the contents of the document or agreement should include. The aim of the research is to determine which issues and problems should be included in the proposed document or agreement in order to effectively regulate international surrogacy.
