The cost of surrogate motherhood in Ukraine in 2022

What is Surrogacy?

Surrogacy is a modern reproductive technology in which gametes of genetic parents or donors are fertilized and inserted into the uterus, specially prepared woman, for this purpose using in vitro fertilization. The gestational nanny carries the fetus, gives birth to a healthy child and passes it on to the biological parents. In this way, the couple receives a fully their own, genetic baby.

Statistics show that every year more and more couples ask for help in having a baby. Surrogacy is one of the most successful solutions to the worldwide problem of women not being able to carry and give birth on their own.

Infertility in the World and the Legislation of Countries for Surrogacy

As defined by the World Health Organization, an infertile couple is one in which, for one year of regular sexual intercourse, without the use of any contraception, no pregnancy occurs or it is permanently interrupted.

The male form of infertility can be associated with endocrine gland diseases, injuries, and inflammatory processes in the testicles.

A woman can lose the ability to conceive through diseases of the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterine malformations, or hormonal abnormalities. There may also be diseases that contraindicate pregnancy and childbirth, such as heart or other failure, cancer, and others.

According to WHO, about 48.5 million couples in the world are considered infertile, and another 19.2 million have difficulty conceiving and giving birth to their firstborn.

With the advent of this reproductive technology, people are divided into two camps. Some believe that it is selling babies and immoral to use a woman as an incubator. Still, many believe that it is the last chance for an infertile couple to have a native baby who will be genetically identical to the parents.

In most Muslim countries, such as Oman, the UAE, Iran, and Pakistan, the use of surrogates is prohibited by law, up to and including criminal liability.

Among European countries, the Czech Republic and Greece stand out, where it is possible to use the surrogate mother services, but there are some difficulties. In Greece, a court permission is required to become real parents, otherwise the child remains with the surrogate. In the Czech Republic, it will be necessary to go through a waiver from the gestational mother, and then the couple needs to go through a simplified adoption procedure.

In turn, Ukraine, Georgia, Russia, Canada and some states of the USA have advantages for surrogacy. Each country has its own conditions of the program, pluses and minuses. In the USA there is a high level of medicine, but there is one nuance: it is very expensive and many people cannot afford it. Russia is loyal to this reproductive technology, but even here there may be incidents, for example, breach of contract, as at the legislative level there are no clear rules. In Georgia, the medicine is medium developed, as well as conservative traditions, which may also influence the attitude in the society towards surmamas, but the price is cheaper here.

The surrogacy program includes:

  • examination of a surrogate mother;
  • carrying out an IVF program;
  • medicines for a surrogate mother;
  • monitoring and maintaining pregnancy.

The price of surrogate motherhood seems insignificant in comparison with the ability to have your own child and feel the joy of motherhood. The issues of cost and principles of payment of remuneration to the surrogate mother, as well as help during pregnancy, the prospective parents discuss with the surrogate mother individually.

To conclude an agreement on the Surrogacy program in Ukraine, the following documents are required:

For customers:


The originals of passports and identification codes of spouses, marriage certificate;

a notarized copy of the written joint agreement between the surrogate mother, wife (husband) or spouses.

For a surrogate mother:
  • original passport and identification code;
  • original certificate of marriage or divorce (except for single women);
  • the original birth certificate of the child(ren);
  • the application of the husband of the surrogate mother to her participation in the surrogacy program, which he signs at the medical center before the surrogacy program.

Why Ukraine is the best country for surrogacy

Ukraine has a reliable legal background for conducting a surrogacy program, which has been legalized since 2007, making this country a European center for medical tourism. Legislation protects the rights of surrogate mothers, so they do not have to worry about their health and fulfillment of all terms of the contract, and parents do not have to worry about the health and parental rights to the child. Also, a big plus is that in Ukraine it is allowed to commercialize the surrogate mother, because she spends her time on it, goes through many different procedures, and pregnancy and childbirth is quite a hard process. In turn, it is difficult for parents to find a woman they know who would agree to help give birth for free and it is easier for them to pay a gestational nanny.

The program can be used both by Ukrainians and people from other countries, Uamedtours can help with this. We take care of all legal processes, IVF procedure, pregnancy control, organization of delivery and in the end we help to register the child.

 

Advantages of conducting the procedure in Ukraine:

  1. High level of medical services, which guarantees safety for the surrogate and the fetus;
  2. It is much cheaper to have tests, procedures, pregnancy support and childbirth.
  3. Low cost of living and maintenance of a surrogate mother.
  4. No child relinquishment or adoption procedure is required;
  5. Without additional approvals from courts or other authorities;
  6. The law protects all parties to the contract, including the unborn child;
  7. Healthy and clean surrogate mothers who are able to carry and deliver a baby without problems.

If you want to have a baby and not to worry about his health, the course of pregnancy, for the safety of your money and the result of the contract - then we are waiting for your call to Uamedtours.

How many surrogates are in the Ukraine?

Every year more than 2,000 children are born in Ukraine through surrogacy, most of whom are foreign couples. There are about 50 reproductive clinics and many agencies and intermediaries that match couples, known as "intended parents," with surrogate mothers. Ukraine is a popular choice because of the way its surrogacy laws are written. In many European countries, including Great Britain, when a surrogate gives birth, she is listed as the mother on the birth certificate. If she is married, her husband will be listed as the father. In Ukraine, the intended parents are listed as mother and father. This means that getting the child a passport and bringing him home is much easier. The agency that Emma and Svetlana use is small-it currently handles nine surrogates-but the largest agency in Ukraine currently has 500 surrogates at various stages of pregnancy.

Is single parent surrogacy legal in Ukraine?

Surrogacy in Ukraine can be done by couples with fertility problems.

Unmarried men or women, heterosexual partners, same-sex marriages cannot engage in surrogacy in Ukraine.

WHO CAN BE TREATED WITH SURROGACY IN UKRAINE?

Surrogacy is usually an option for a potential mother who has had her uterus removed but still has ovaries. She can give eggs to conceive, but she does not have a uterus to carry a baby.

Using her own eggs and in vitro fertilization (IVF) technology, she can find a surrogate mother to carry the pregnancy (her own genetic child).

However, if the intended mother does not have good quality eggs, the couple can use an egg donor in Ukraine.

A surrogate is also used in cases where the potential mother has a medical condition that could cause serious health risks to the mother or child. It is also used for couples with repeated failed IVF attempts (4 or more).
