Surrogacy in Ukraine
Assisted reproductive programs and surrogacy programs are regulated by the Family Code of Ukraine.
When a baby is born to a surrogate mother, the genetic parents are considered the legal parents of a child. A child is registered as the legal 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 inconvenience 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.About surrogacy law in Ukraine About surrogacy process in Ukraine
