The medical process for surrogacy requires in vitro fertilization (IVF) to create embryos, which requires a fertility clinic and, eventually, a hospital where your surrogate can give birth.

Other Things to Know About Surrogacy in Alabama

Surrogacy is practiced in Alabama as there are no statues or published case law against it. Pre-birth orders are obtainable in the state but vary by where you live. They’re usually issued to single intended parents who are biologically related to the child or married intended parents that have at least one of them sharing a genetic connection.

Typically, post-birth adoptions are considered easier and more efficient in Alabama and are usually the path for unmarried couples. This happens by obtaining pre-birth consent from your surrogate which becomes effective five days after they deliver.

In 2024, Alabama’s Supreme Court ruled that embryos are children and the accidental or intentional disposal of said embryos could result in civil penalties.

The state passed legislature into law that protects IVF clinics and parents using IVF as a way to parenthood.
