What we do and what we do not


  • We put the program of surrogacy in Ukraine in 7 simple steps


Before you learn about these steps, you should know that there are two types of surrogacy: traditional and gestational surrogacy.


A woman’s carrying and giving a birth to a child/children conceived by intended parents or one of them using a donor’s egg/sperm is called gestational surrogacy. In this case a woman, who is called gestational surrogate, does not have any genetic relation to a child/children she bears. Ukrainian legislation unequivocally recognizes intended parents to be legal parents to a child/children born by gestational surrogate.


A woman’s carrying and giving a birth to a child/children conceived by her and intended father or using a donor’s sperm is called traditional surrogacy. In this case a woman, traditional surrogate, is genetically related to a child/children she bears.


In spite of the fact that our database of surrogate mothers contains women who are willing to be traditional surrogates, we are not rendering any legal services relating to traditional surrogacy in Ukraine as traditional surrogates are considered to be legal mothers to children they bear according to Ukrainian legislation. Any agreement obliging a traditional surrogate to relinquish her maternal rights to a child/children after birth is void under Ukrainian laws! Any intended parents should be aware of this not to get into trap.


At the same time we provide full range of services relating to gestational surrogacy in Ukraine, except for medical part. Our vast database of surrogate mothers, sperm and egg donors gives lots of opportunities to our clients in surrogacy program.
