Experts from the West Indies agree that in recent years, the demand for surgery has increased. Although “borrowing a womb” may have been a negative thing in the past, people are now very sensitive to the plight of women who have difficulty conceiving. Jamaica, an island country in the West Indies becomes a surrogacy-friendly region. Jamaicans have joined the global practice of renting a womb from a midwife, who carries the pregnancy and releases the baby shortly after birth. A fertility and laparoscopic center in Jamaica says it is not uncommon for people to ask about the possibility of having a surrogate to carry their children.
It seems that the world is divided on this issue of childbearing, even though it has been a practice for many years. For example, laws in the United States differ from state to state. In New York, you can be fined or charged with a crime, while in states like Delaware and California, surgery is effective. Countries like France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Bulgaria have banned any form of abortion. In countries such as the UK, Ireland, Denmark, and Belgium, an agent is accepted without payment or only for reasonable expenses. Cash payments to the mother (known as commercial shopping) are prohibited.
There is currently no law in Jamaica. There is no set rule at the end of the pregnancy period; they must have their baby later. Dr. Vernon DaCosta, head of the Hugh Wynter Fertility Management Unit at the University Hospital of the West Indies, says: “They’re usually not a problem, it’s just a long time, but the good thing is that it’s a surname. Usually on the registry, so only the adoptive mother can.
The Hugh Wynter Fertility Management Unit is one of the facilities that invites women who think they are suitable for surrogacy to come in for an appointment. He said that the company is looking for “good representatives” because they have people who come to us to be representatives, but the time you examine them and put them through psychological tests and things again, we will have to correct a lot of things. He said that psychological evaluation is very important because surgery is a complex process and people need to know and understand what they are getting into.
Attorney Sherry-Ann McGregor explains the importance of the law because all parties involved enter into an agreement under a consent agreement that outlines obligations, rights, and responsibilities. He says: “The agreement is good as long as the parties adhere to it, if there is a breach or if someone does not want to do what is said in it, and then we will have a position in the court because we do not have a law that gives guidance.
Current surrogacy status
Many companies in the United States and other developed countries have created platforms that allow women to offer their wombs for rent as birth mothers. One of these websites has a list of 163 Jamaican women offering their services as surrogate mothers. He wants to be a representative because individuals can start their families and share their lives. The 26-year-old said he is willing to help straight, gay, and bisexual couples as well as single women and men. There are many people who want to have children who cannot, and I would like to help them by giving them a child of their own. It is not known if any of the Jamaicans who advertised their jobs have been hired as a replacement.
