Surrogacy

A surrogacy program is the only chance to become a mother for women who, for some reason, cannot carry a child on their own. Such a program is completely legal on the territory of Ukraine. Moreover, the doctors of the “Victoria” clinic have many years of experience in working with surrogate mothers. You can completely trust us in this procedure.

 About Surrogacy

In surrogacy program, the eggs and sperm of a married couple are used, the genetic material of the couple or one of the spouses. Embryos obtained as a result of in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment are transferred into the body of another woman - a surrogate mother.

An adult healthy (physically and mentally) woman who has her own born healthy child can become a surrogate mother.

A surrogacy program provides that a completely healthy woman agrees to become pregnant with the help of assisted reproductive technologies, to carry and give birth to a child, which will then be given to his genetic parents. They will be legally considered the parents of the child.

A surrogacy program combines thorough diagnostics, selection and preparation of a surrogate mother for an in vitro fertilization (IVF) program.

Legislation of Surrogacy

Surrogacy in Ukraine is legal and regulated by the Family code of Ukraine and other normative documents.

The Clause 2 of Article 123 of the Family Code of Ukraine defines the origin of a child who was born through the use of methods of artificial insemination and clearly defines the parents of a child who was born by the surrogate mother – the couple who provided the gametes (germ cells) and used the services of surrogate mother.

Paragraph 3 of the same article establishes the possibility of usage by the spouses donor oocytes or sperm in the program of in vitro and the embryo in any case will be the same as the one received from spouses. The couple, who have agreed to the usage of assisted reproductive technologies, fully have parental rights and obligations in respect of the born children as a result of the use of these techniques.

Please note that the “Victoria” Reproductive Genetics Clinic provides exclusively a medical service in surrogacy programs, which is the procedure of in vitro fertilization and genetic parent’s embryo transfer into the uterus of a surrogate mother. The clinic and its employees do not provide assistance and advisory services, in particular juridical, on registration of the child/children born through surrogacy, as well as rules and procedures of the registration and registration of exit (travel) documents in the embassies of foreign states for the child/children who were born by a surrogate mother.
