Gestational Surrogacy is generally permitted in South Dakota. There are no statutes or published case law that specifically permits or prohibits surrogacy.
Pre-Birth Orders can be obtained by any Intended Parent, whether married or unmarried, a heterosexual or same sex couple or individual, and even if neither Intended Parent is genetically related to the child. Post-Birth Adoptions are also available.
