As per the Georgia Surrogacy Laws, commissioning parents are registered as a legal parent of the baby born via a surrogacy arrangement. No surrogate mother is mentioned in the baby birth certificate, even if a commissioning parent uses an egg donor or sperm donor.
Extracorporeal fertilization (IVF) is allowed:
For the purpose of treatment of infertility, as well as in the case of risk of transmission of genetic disease on a wife’s or a husband’s part, by using sex cells or an embryo of the couple or a donor, if the couple’s written consent has been obtained.
For the purpose of transfer and growth of the embryo obtained as a result of fertilization to the uterus of another woman (“surrogate mother”). The couple’s written consent is obligatory.
The couple is considered to be parents in case of the childbirth with the responsibility and authority ensuing from it. A donor or a “surrogate mother” has no right to be recognized as a parent of the born child.
For the purpose of artificial fertilization, it is possible to use female and male sex cells or an embryo conserved by the method of freezing. The time of conservation is determined according to the couple’s will by established procedure.
