This concluding chapter argues that even though surrogate mothers are complicit in converting their pregnancies into wage labor, they still want some control over the labor process. Similarly, the intended parents are complicit in converting pregnancy into a form of wage labor and by extension the baby into a commodity. However, they also want to impose restraints on the surrogate mothers to fulfill the terms of their labor contracts under acceptable conditions. Moreover, the clients implement these restraints because of their love for their forthcoming children. These excessive love has usually been the cause of intended parents' mistrust in surrogate mothers.
