Summary of "Cross-border surrogacy - experiences of heterosexual and gay parents in Sweden."

Surrogacy is a controversial method for assisted reproduction that is not permitted in many countries. While there is some evidence that families following surrogacy seem to fare well, there is limited knowledge about the experiences of parents who turned to cross-border surrogacy. The aim of the present study was therefore to investigate the experiences of heterosexual parents and gay fathers who chose cross-border surrogacy to have a child.
