|Key laws and policies=*There are no specific laws regulating assisted reproduction or surrogacy. However, other laws are relevant. For example, pursuant to laws against human trafficking in that country, it may be considered exploitation and therefore would be against the law. [1]
 +
|Foundational values=*A study of married women's attitudes to surrogacy in East Azerbaijan found that "a significant percentage of the women believed that commissioning couples are not the legal parents. The majority thought that surrogacy should be the last resort and that adopting a child is a better solution for infertile women who want a child. A majority were of the opinion that children born through surrogacy should not be informed about their birth history and that if they were, they could experience emotional problems. A significant percentage of the women reported that they would not recommend gestational surrogacy to infertile women." [2]
