ABSTRACT
The article discusses the enforcement of surrogacy premises in the best interest of the children. It explores the process of surrogacy wherein the women who do not have the capacity of conceiving or carrying a child are provided with a chance at motherhood. It highlights the reliance of some courts in the determination of maternity on the fact that a special bond is formed in the woman who gestates the child.
