METHODS: A total of 42 couples with a 1‐year‐old child born through surrogacy were assessed using a standardized semi‐structured interview. Data were obtained on motivations for surrogacy, details about the surrogate mother, experience of surrogacy during pregnancy and after birth and disclosure of the surrogacy to friends and family. 

CONCLUSIONS: Commissioning couples generally perceived the surrogacy arrangement as a positive experience.
