The decision by the commission, which reviews requests for surrogate mothers, was made after the first woman to serve as a surrogate in Israel described severe emotional suffering after the birth. The woman gave birth to twins two months ago. Under the agreement reached with the parents, the woman did not see the babies, but heard their cries when they were born.
