Yes, it is permitted in various countries, including the United States. This option is known as gainful or commercial surrogacy and is a common choice among celebrities who want to avoid the physical changes associated with pregnancy. In other countries like Ukraine, Greece or Georgia, surrogate motherhood is allowed only for medical reasons.
