Program Types

Depending on your needs, there are three types of surrogacy programmes: 

Surrogacy from own reproductive cells

A program for couples, provided that the woman's and man's bodies are able to produce eggs and sperm of the required quality. But a woman cannot get pregnant, bear and give birth to a child for medical reasons.

Surrogacy with donor eggs or sperm

A program for couples suffering from diseases of the reproductive system that cause female or male infertility.

Surrogacy with frozen embryos (FET)

The program is for couples who already have created embryos of good quality. But the woman at the time of entering the program has medical indications for surrogacy.

If you need a program with a donor egg, the clinic will provide access to its own donor database. By using the clinic's database, you are guaranteed that the donors:

  • have undergone a full medical examination
  • have confirmed fertility
  • have excellent physical and psychological health
  • are between the ages of 18 and 30

In the donor database, you will find the following information about the donor:

  • weight and height
  • eye colour
  • hair colour and type
  • blood type and Rh factor
  • education
  • photo of the donor 

Another advantage of Georgia is that future parents have access to photos of donors both as children and adults.

Sometimes, for intended parents, this is critical.

How much does surrogacy cost in Georgia

In Georgia, the cost of all-inclusive surrogacy ranges from USD 45,000 to USD 70,000. The price depends on the type of programme chosen. 

This amount includes

  • egg donation services, if necessary
  • prenatal care programme and childbirth

  • consultations and support of doctors

  • commission of a licensed agency that accompanies biological parents and surrogate mother at all stages of the programme

  • effectiveness and efficiency of treatment
  • availability of medical services
  • safety and comfort for the patient
