Surrogacy: what is, how works, pros and cons | Forsa Fertility


What Is Surrogacy?

Surrogacy is an assisted reproductive technology the application of which enables a surrogate mother to voluntarily get pregnant, carry and give birth to a baby that is genetically alien to her and is to be handed to genetic parents – a couple suffering from infertility.

Surrogate medicine is much talked about. There are a lot of discussions and doubts, opinions both for and against it. However, no one brings into a question the high effectiveness of surrogacy programs as well as the fact that quite often it becomes the only possible way to have a child for those struggling with infertility for over several years.

    It depends entirely on you how quickly the program starts. We guarantee that an embryo transfer will be scheduled within 1-2 months after your first visit to a doctor and no later than 3 months.

  • Egg donors

    In our database there are donors of different age, height, phenotype, nationality, race, level of education etc. Аccording to your preferences and criteria, we will select not one but several candidates so that you have a choice.

The clinic has been operating for nearly 10 years and has gained acknowledgement as an industry leader..

  • Legal support

    Since the whole procedure of surrogate motherhood is quite difficult and lengthy, legal advice is an inevitable part of it. Our lawyers have drafted the contract between the intended parents and a surrogate mother to secure the parents’ rights, outline the surrogate’s responsibilities and define obligations before the surrogate mother. The involvement of each party in the program requires strict compliance with the contract conditions. The procedure of registering the child in the state offices of Ukraine is prescribed by the order of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine. Our lawyers accompany the program until you receive a complete package of documents for the baby and happily return home.

  • Medical examinations

    Our patients, egg donors and surrogate mothers should undergo mandatory medical examinations at the clinic where the program is scheduled. Reliable medical tests are important for us because they serve as a basis for arranging an individual treatment protocol. All costs are included in the contract.

  • Accommodation and meals

    For your stay during initial visits to the clinic, Forsa Fertility has arranged a modern and extremely comfortable hotel in the centre of Kyiv. President Hotel 4* offers superior accommodations with a spectacular city view and a delicious breakfast served in the room. For long visits, we will arrange comfortable apartments where you can cook by yourself or visit cafes nearby.

  • Medications

    For the preparation of patients, egg donors and surrogate mothers we use only licensed and time-tested medicines that increase the effectiveness of treatment and reduce the risk of adverse reactions.

  • Car transfer

    The first person you will see upon your arrival in Ukraine would be our transport manager. He will meet you at the airport and drive you to a hotel or an apartment. Our drivers are responsible for your safety and timely arrivals to all the appointments. You do not have to worry about scheduling your visits to a doctor. Our driver will pick you up and take you to the clinic at the appropriate time. We also care about your comfortable participation in the treatment program and try to reduce possible traffic stress in a busy city. So you do not have to come to the clinic every day for necessary medical procedures. Our nurse will come to your hotel or apartment when it is convenient for you.

  • Genetic testing

    Genetic testing (PGD 5) is included in the contract. We should be confident not only in the quality of embryos but in the good health condition of your future baby. With the help of this testing, you will also be able to find out the sex of the embryos, and a doctor will transfer those you choose.

  • Individual choice of a surrogate

    We carefully select candidates for a surrogate mother because we want you to make sure that you can entrust your own child to this woman. We understand how important it is for you, so from our side, we do our best to make the whole process transparent, clear and enjoyable.

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).
