3. Industry scope historical review

Surrogacy is an arrangement, often supported by a legal agreement, whereby a woman agrees to bear a child for another person or persons, who will become the childs parent after birth. The surrogacy industry was originally popularized as early as 1978 after the first baby successfully conceived through an IVF transfer.

In 1980, an establishment for a" compensated-surrogacy” was concluded, reporting a successful transition, outlining an agreement between the two parties traditional surrogate and the intended parents – Elizabeth Kane rewarding a total of $10.000 to successful carry and deliver a baby for the intended couples/parents.

As technological advancements increased with progressive and improving segments, surrogacy methodologies increased. While this was popularizing, a number of agencies rose, providing surrogacy services for both females and males, regardless of what their sexual preferences or orientation were.
