This post aims to address the main novelties and changes regarding surrogacy for this year 2022.

COUNTRIES: First of all, the United States and Canada continue to stand out as the safest countries to carry out surrogacy processes, where couples of any type (heterosexual, homosexual, married or not, and single mothers and fathers) can have access.
