Surrogacy

Who Can Use the Surrogacy Treatment in Ukraine?

  • Only married couples with fertility problems can use surrogacy in Ukraine. Single men or women, heterosexual partners, same-sex couples cannot take the advantage of it.
  • Surrogacy may be an option for a woman who has had her uterus removed but the ovaries preserved. She can provide her oocytes but has no womb to carry a child. In this case, she can find a surrogate mother to carry the pregnancy using her eggs and in vitro fertilization technology (IVF). This will be the chance for the woman to have her own genetic child. If an intended mother does not have oocytes of good quality, she may use an egg donor in Ukraine.
  • A surrogate mother may be also a solution for the woman having a medical condition that could harm her or the baby’s health.
  • Surrogacy is also indicated for couples with repeated IVF failures (4 or more failures).

Surrogacy. Frequently asked questions

  • How can I have surrogacy cycle in Ukraine during covid-19 travel restrictions? Is it possible to enter the country through flight, car connection?

    Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, an adaptive quarantine is in effect in Ukraine, and the government introduces a lockdown measures from time to time. However, the government's recent decision has simplified entry for foreign citizens who come to Ukraine for medical treatment. This means that having a medical invitation as a confirmation of intention to undergo treatment in Ukraine, foreign citizens can cross the Ukrainian border not only in terms of a long-term adaptive quarantine, but also during a lockdown. For a visit to Ukraine a PCR test and Covid-19 insurance are required. We also advise to contact the embassy before planning a trip to Ukraine to clarify the detailed requirements for an upcoming visit. Currently, the borders are open to both those arriving by land and air. Airports operate normally, but the conditions of transit through transit countries need to be clarified independently.

  • What are the initial steps in a surrogacy process?

    The process itself can be divided into several main stages. On the initial stage, you should send a request for detailed information about the program, provide results of the necessary medical examinations, required documents, and hold an online consultation with a doctor. Only after the doctor has given a confirmation of the possibility of entering the program, you will receive instructions on how to prepare for arrival at the clinic. On the first visit you will be asked to undergo the final medical examinations. Only after the doctor receives the results of the tests performed here in the clinic, you will receive final confirmation of the possibility of undergoing a surrogacy program. In case of surrogacy with own eggs, you will receive a treatment protocol, all necessary drugs, and a detailed plan of next steps. If the program uses donor eggs, then there are no drugs needed.
    The signing of the contract is also held after medical examinations are done.
    Only 5-day-old embryos of good quality that have undergone preimplantation research are to be transferred.

  • Which documents are obligatory for intended parents before starting the surrogacy program?

    Since commercial surrogacy is allowed in Ukraine and regulated by law, there are certain requirements for its participants. Prior to signing the contract, the Intended Parents are required to provide copies of passports, a marriage certificate, a medical proof of indication for surrogacy, and the results of necessary medical examinations.

  • How can I find a surrogate mother?

    We are fully engaged in the search, selection, preparation, management, and control over surrogate mothers. All candidates are carefully selected to satisfy the requirements of the law, meet the criteria of a doctor, and become a reliable partner for you on this long journey.

  • How much surrogacy in Ukraine cost?

    The Ukrainian surrogacy market offers a wide range treatment programs at a reasonable price, which is many times lower than the cost of programs in the United States and Europe. At the same time, the quality of medical services is recognized by many leading experts in the world, and the package offers are not only convenient for the client, but also include options aimed at ensuring a high level of treatment success.
    3 main surrogacy programs are popular in Ukraine: programs with own eggs, guarantee programs with donor oocytes and programs with transfer of transport embryos of the Intended Parents.
    In terms of prices, the cheapest is the package with the transfer of frozen embryos, because this program is cheaper in cost. The average price is 38,000 - 42,000 euros.
    Programs with own eggs will cost more because they require as it requires the presence and preparation of both parents. The average price for 1 attempt is 40,000 euros.
    Guarantee packages ensure success of the program regardless of the number of attempts. The average price for such packages is the highest – 55,000 - 75,000 euros.
    Customers should be wary of cheap offers for programs. The low price of surrogate programs in Ukraine (below 40,000 euro) should be alarming, because it means that the provider of services is not working in the legal field and over time will not be able to ensure the fulfillment of its obligations.
    If you have questions about the cost of the package or what you are paying for, you have the right to receive all this information from the clinic or an agency you work with to understand the transparency of work and your costs.

  • How do you screen your surrogate mothers?

    The clinic and the doctor are responsible for medical examination and preparation of a surrogate mother for embryo transfer. All preliminary examinations of a surrogate mother, her medical preparation for an embryo transfer, and subsequently the management of the pregnancy itself are carried out only in our clinic. We want to be sure of the reliability of the test results, we trust only our specialists and want to control the process from the very beginning.
    Medical examination of surrogate mothers is done strictly according to the list approved by the Ukraine’s Ministry of Health. You can get acquainted with the detailed list of analyzes on our website.

  • Do you provide intended parents with legal support? What is included?

    Legal support is provided at all stages of the program and includes:
    contract development
    notarization of contracts
    processing of papers for a child

  • Which are the next steps after a baby birth? How soon intended parents can return at home with their baby?

    Congratulations to you! You have become happy parents! Soon you will return home not alone. As surrogacy is regulated by law, the order of your departure with the baby should be legal also.
    After the birth and signing of the official waiver by the surrogate mother, a birth certificate will be issued in Ukraine, in which you will be identified as the genetic parents. Following the registration in the State Registry Office, the preparation of documents will take place in several state institutions of Ukraine and later in the embassy. How long the whole procedure will take depends on several factors, including the requirements of the state where you live on a regular basis. We will inform you in advance about how long it will take to complete the paperwork so that you can plan your time and schedule work.
