International Surrogacy

Legal Benefits


Surrogacy in Ukraine is the most legally secure and stable option for couples struggling with infertility wishing to start their own loving family affordably.

Laws and BenefitsUkrainian law offers many protections and benefits to intended parents

When we speak of surrogacy in Ukraine, we are speaking of gestational surrogacy. This is when the surrogate is carrying an embryo not genetically related to her in any way.

Your child from the very beginning: Under Ukrainian law, the child is legally considered to be the child of the intended parents from the very moment of conception. You have control over all medical decisions regarding your child throughout the pregnancy.

Surrogacy in Ukraine is legal and well regulated. Surrogacy contracts are enforceable and legally binding. Medical facilities are licensed and there is legal requirements for who can become a surrogate or donor.

The surrogate has no legal rights to your baby: By law, the surrogate cannot keep the child after the birth for any reason. This is established clearly in Ukrainian law at the highest levels. Your surrogate never has custody of your child at any time throughout the pregnancy. 

Birth Certificates: You, the intended parents are named on the birth certificate as mother and father. There is no mention of a surrogate or donor.

Commercial surrogacy is legal: Unlike many countries where surrogacy is illegal outright or limited to altruistic surrogacy. 

Commercial surrogacy is legal

Ukrainian surrogacy is open to all nationalities: 70% of all intended parents participating in Ukrainian surrogacy are international. Many other countries have laws that are very unfriendly to surrogacy or have banned surrogacy outright, such as India, Thailand, and Nepal.

Ukrainian surrogacy is not new: There have been about 6000 children born via surrogacy in Ukraine in the last 10 years, (most in the last few years.)

Surrogate and donor selection: You have the right to choose your surrogate and egg or sperm donor. Donors by law must be anonymous. 

Gender selection is legal.

Your child's citizenship: Your child is the nationality of you, the intended parents.
