Gestational Surrogacy is generally permitted in Mississippi. There are no statutes or published case law that specifically permits or prohibits surrogacy.
Mississippi courts are prone to granting Pre-Birth Orders, especially when at least one Intended Parent is genetically related to the child. If neither Intended Parent is genetically related to the child, a Pre-Birth Order is still possible, with results varying by county. Post-Birth Adoptions are also available in the state.
