Legal aspects of Surrogacy in Ukraine
Surrogacy in Ukraine is legalized since 2009 and is considered to be provided for officially married heterosexual couples. So, let’s talk more detailed about Ukraine’ requirements for Surrogacy.
First of all, biological mother should have medical reasons to use Surrogacy, such as:
— absence of the uterus (congenital or acquired);
— deformation of the cavity or cervix in case of congenital malformations or as a result of surgeries, benign tumors in which it is impossible to bear pregnancy;
— untreatable structural-morphological or anatomical changes of the endometrium, leading to loss of receptivity, cecal cavity of the uterus;
— severe somatic diseases in which pregnancy can endanger future health or life of the woman but does not affect the health of the future child;
— unsuccessful repeated attempts of ART (4 and more times) with the repeated obtaining of high quality embryos, the transfer of which didn’t lead to the pregnancy.
Ukrainian Surrogacy law allows only gestational surrogacy, whereby surrogate mother has no genetic relation with the child. Also, at least one from a spouse must have genetic link with the baby. Namely, one or the other can be used in case of Surrogacy: sperm or egg donation. For example, if oocyte donation is used for a spouse – biological material of a third woman will be used, but not surrogate mother’s.
An obligatory condition due to Surrogacy law in Ukraine is the presence of a notarial agreement between a surrogate mother and spouse.
Surrogate mother must have at least one own healthy child, that is confirmed by the certificate of birth of the child. Prior the participation, she passes strict medical examination, must be approved by a doctor, confirming her ability to carry the pregnancy and to birth a child.
