An average surrogate mother in Ukraine is a woman around the age of 30. Usually, they have a specialized secondary or higher education. Most surrogates are teachers, nurses, doctors, engineers, accountants who already have their babies and want to help other families and get compensation to support their own kids. Today we will overview all aspects of IVF and surrogacy in Ukraine and determine why it is one of the best destinations for international fertility services. Additionally, you will be able to access a free egg donor database and choose the best clinics.
Surrogacy is the only way for women who do not have a uterus or suffer from serious conditions to get a child inheriting their genes. Geneticists obtain one or multiple embryos via fertilization of a genetic mother`s oocyte with sperm of a genetic father. After that, they transfer the embryo into the surrogate mother`s body. For nine months, a surrogate mother carries a child with no genetic relationship. It`s an example of a gestational surrogacy program. Therefore, the newborn baby is genetically and legally considered a child of the couple who provided their oocytes and sperm.
Gestational surrogacy can also take place with donor eggs or sperm. It is a great way for single men, women, gay and lesbian couples to become happy parents. Some countries also allow traditional surrogacy when the surrogate mother provides her oocytes which doctors fertilize via IVF or IUI. However, it can lead to ethical and legal concerns because the surrogate mother becomes biologically related to the kid. Traditional surrogacy has high emotional risks; that’s why specialists recommend opting for a gestational way.
Currently, surrogacy in Ukraine is regulated by Article 123 of the Family Code and Order of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine No 787. Surrogacy in Ukraine is legal for married couples with medical indications, such as:
It is highly important that, according to Ukrainian law, a gestational surrogate does not possess any rights for the baby as far as they are not genetically related. On the contrary, biological parents become legal parents right from the moment of conception.
However, at the moment, Ukraine does not regulate surrogacy for same-sex couples. In such cases, we arrange surrogacy programs in Kenya, the Philippines, and other countries; please contact us to get full information about all possible destinations.

A gestational surrogate mother is not genetically related to the newborn. Pregnancy occurs as a result of in vitro fertilization using eggs and sperm of future parents. An indispensable component of the program is the conclusion of an agreement between the parties to the process. The document determines the size and procedure for paying compensation to the surrogate mother, child registration, and other legal aspects.
Not every woman can become a surrogate mother. our programs have strict requirements:
Doctors most often carry out surrogacy programs using cryoprotocols. They obtain embryos from genetic parents’ biomaterial and freeze them for subsequent transfer to a surrogate mother. This approach allows going without synchronizing the cycles. Thus, we avoid desynchronization and reduce the number of interventions in the female body. Besides, cryoprotocols allow preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) to select the highest-quality embryos.

A couple chooses a surrogate mother and/or an egg donor from the database. Only comprehensively examined healthy young women can become a donor or surrogate.
With the help of professionals, intended parents come to Kyiv and sign a competent legal surrogacy agreement that protects all program participants’ interests.
In vitro fertilization is performed. First, the intended mother takes hormonal drugs to induce superovulation; then, she undergoes a follicle puncture to obtain eggs. Embryologists fertilize oocytes with sperm, culture embryos, and freeze the best of them by vitrification. At this stage, we do the PGS with gender selection.
The chosen surrogate mother gets ready for implantation. Doctors transfer 1-2 embryos into her uterine cavity.
2 weeks after the transfer procedure, the surrogate mother makes a blood test for the human chorionic gonadotropin (HGG) to confirm pregnancy. If the hCG test confirms pregnancy, monitoring the health of the temporary mother and baby begins. It includes all the necessary diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
The final step is delivery and obtaining the necessary documents. After the birth, you come to Kyiv to take your baby home.
