The Ethical Standards of Surrogacy in Bogotá, Colombia: Prioritizing the Well-being of All Parties



Surrogacy is a complex process that intertwines emotional, physical, legal, and ethical aspects. As an agency guiding intended parents through their surrogacy journey in Bogotá, Colombia, the Surrogacy Institute upholds the highest ethical standards to ensure the well-being of all parties involved - the intended parents, the surrogate, and the child. This article explores the ethical framework we abide by and the measures we take to prioritize everyone's well-being in the surrogacy process.

Understanding Ethical Surrogacy

Ethical surrogacy goes beyond adhering to legal standards—it involves making decisions and taking actions that prioritize the rights, welfare, and dignity of all involved parties. From the initial consultation to the post-birth transition, each step is performed with utmost respect, transparency, and consideration for the physical and emotional well-being of the intended parents, surrogate, and child.

The Role of Informed Consent

Informed consent is a fundamental ethical principle in any medical process, including surrogacy. Before embarking on the surrogacy journey, all parties are educated about the surrogacy process, risks, potential challenges, and rights and responsibilities. This ensures that everyone involved understands the journey they're committing to, allowing them to make fully informed decisions.

Comprehensive Screening and Support for Surrogates

A vital part of ensuring ethical surrogacy is the comprehensive screening of surrogate candidates. This process, which includes medical, psychological, and background evaluations, ensures the surrogate is fully prepared for the surrogacy journey. Beyond screening, we provide ongoing support and care to the surrogate throughout the pregnancy, ensuring her physical and emotional well-being.

Respect for the Autonomy and Rights of the Surrogate

Surrogates make a remarkable commitment when they agree to carry a child for someone else, and their rights and autonomy must be fully respected. We ensure that surrogates are not coerced or financially exploited, and they have the right to make decisions about their health and pregnancy. The surrogacy agreement carefully outlines the roles, responsibilities, and rights of the surrogate, ensuring she is protected.

Transparent Financial Agreements

Financial agreements in surrogacy must be transparent and fair. All payments and reimbursements to the surrogate are detailed clearly in the surrogacy agreement to avoid any potential misunderstandings or exploitation. The surrogate's compensation is not linked to the success of the pregnancy, ensuring she does not face any undue pressure or financial insecurity.

Prioritizing the Child’s Best Interests

In every decision and action, the best interest of the child is our foremost priority. This is reflected in our diligent efforts to ensure the health and safety of the surrogate and unborn child throughout the pregnancy. We also assist intended parents in preparing for their new roles and facilitate the smooth transition of the child into their care after birth.

Legal Protections and Respect for Laws

Respect for the laws governing surrogacy in Colombia and the intended parents' home country is an integral part of our ethical commitment. We provide legal consultation and guidance to ensure the surrogacy process complies with all applicable laws and legal protections are in place for all parties.


At the Surrogacy Institute, our ethical standards are deeply ingrained in our approach to surrogacy. We believe in prioritizing the well-being of all parties involved and in providing a surrogacy experience that respects the rights and dignity of the intended parents, surrogate, and child.
