Surrogacy in Ukraine
Infertility treatment programs and surrogacy programs are regulated by the Family Code of Ukraine.
When a baby is born by a surrogate mother, genetic parents are considered to be the parents of the baby.
In contrast to other countries, genetic parents don't need to carry out the procedure of adoption of the newborn baby in their home country. After the delivery, the child is registered as the child of genetic parents and in no way as a "test tube baby."
At the legislative level there was not a single case of a disrespectful attitude of genetic parents towards a surrogate mother, forceful carrying by a surrogate mother of somebody else's child and vice versa, no surrogate mother harmed or caused any inconveniences to genetic parents.
Couples whose marriage is officially registered can use the surrogacy service in Ukraine. Under the law, same-sex couples and singles can't take part in a surrogacy program.
