Can the Surrogate Mother keep my Baby?
No, not in California under California law provided the couple do two things in the process of hiring a
surrogate to have their child. Number one, they must sign the agreement drafted by an attorney who’s
expert in the area of surrogacy law. Number two, they must make sure they do not utilize the eggs of
the surrogate in the process. If they do these two things, they can be assured under California law that
the surrogate cannot take their baby.
