Having Our Baby

Surrogacy is booming, but what is the impact on our ethics, our laws and the medical system in Canada? And most of all, how does this impact couples desperate to have a child?

Advances in medical technology and acceptance of gay marriage have fueled a surrogate baby boom in Canada.  Everyone makes money off the deal, except the surrogate moms themselves. It is illegal in Canada to pay a surrogate for her services. Having our Baby follows two childless couples and their surrogates as they navigate the legal and ethical challenges of this most intimate and contentious of transactions.

Surrogacy is a practice as old as the Bible but it’s only in the last 40 years that surrogacy – commercial and altruistic – has taken off. And in the past decade, it’s increased 400%.

Modern surrogacy is challenging ancient notions of birth and parenthood. The ethical challenges provoke world-wide debate. The answers are not simple. But for those who have yearned for a child they thought they’d never have, surrogacy is nothing short of a miracle.
