Surrogacy in Ukraine: fundamental principles

Surrogacy is fully legal in Ukraine and is regulated by the Family Code of Ukraine, the order of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, and the Rules of State Registration of Civil Status Acts in Ukraine.

  • The surrogate mother is not the mother of the child (neither legally, biologically, nor ethically).
  • The surrogate mother is not the mother of the child.
  • Only heterosexual couples (a man and a woman) who are officially married can use the services of a surrogate in Ukraine.
  • Only couples who cannot have a child or are unable to bear a child on their own can resort to this method of assisted reproductive technologies.
  • If one spouse's biological material is not suitable for conceiving a healthy child, the couple can use sperm or donor egg (the female donor and the future surrogate cannot be the same person to avoid legal and ethical complications).
  • Conception of the child takes place in a laboratory, surrogacy excludes the option of natural conception (sexual intercourse).
  • Surrogacy in Ukraine is allowed on a commercial basis (the surrogate receives monetary remuneration for services rendered).

Requirements to the state of health of a surrogate mother in Ukraine

The health of the surrogate mother directly affects the health of the child she is carrying and the chances of a successful delivery. For this reason, medical institutions take the diagnosis of the surmother's condition seriously. Also, additional requirements may be imposed by the prospective parents.

  • Physical health. A surrogate mother must be in good physical shape, with no contraindications for pregnancy and childbirth. She should undergo a medical examination, which includes a general blood and urine test, screening for genetic and hereditary diseases, as well as other necessary medical checks.
  • Lifestyle. A surrogate mother should maintain a healthy lifestyle, including avoiding unhealthy habits such as smoking, alcohol or drug use.

There are three areas of psychological health:

  • Psychology of separation – the future surrogate mother must clearly understand that the child she is carrying is not her child, and she must be psychologically prepared to give it up after delivery to the biological parents. At the same time, the surrogate must be responsible for the pregnancy and take care of the health of the fetus.
  • Postpartum support – after delivery, the surrogate mother can be accompanied by a psychologist and help her cope with the separation from the child. At the same time, during the selection process, preference is given to women with a more stable psyche, for whom to go through such a situation will be less traumatic experience.
