Yes, surrogacy is legal in Iowa. The state has comprehensive laws, specifically Iowa Code 710.11 and 641-99.15, that expressly permit gestational surrogacy. These laws provide a clear legal framework for surrogacy agreements, ensuring that arrangements for singles, unmarried couples, and LGBTQ+ individuals are accommodated. However, only partial pre-birth orders are granted and in limited circumstances. Intended parents should expect to undergo post-birth processes to secure parentage.
