The ever-increasing prevalence of infertility around the world has led to the development of assisted reproductive technologies. Here, surrogacy acts as an alternative when an infertile woman or a married couple is unable to have children.
In gestational surrogacy, the embryo that is fertilized in vitro fertilization is implanted in the uterus of the surrogate mother, who carries and gives birth to the child. In traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother is artificially inseminated with the intended father’s sperm, making her both a genetic mother and a pregnant mother. Surrogate motherhood can be commercial or altruistic, it depends on whether the surrogate mother receives financial reward for carrying the pregnancy or not.
Surrogate motherhood according to the law of Ukraine
Commercial surrogacy is legal in Ukraine. Surrogate motherhood is regulated by an article of the Family Code of Ukraine.
The concept of “surrogate motherhood” involves an agreement between a surrogate mother on the one hand – and a couple or one person on the other hand, for the surrogate mother to carry, give birth, and then transfer the child to the latter, most often referred to as the intended parent / parents.
A surrogacy agreement is a commitment made by a woman (surrogate mother) to carry a child for another person or couple (committing parents), with the latter offering to take over the future care of the child.
How does surrogate motherhood work in Ukraine
First of all, in order to officially participate in the surrogate motherhood program, an agreement is concluded between the parties. It is the contract that regulates the relationship between the parties, thus ensuring the fulfillment of their obligations by each of the parties. The drawn up contract is notarized.
The contract on surrogate motherhood prescribes all the points regarding:
- The obligations of the parties;
- The duration of the contract;
- Payments for services rendered.
The cost of surrogacy depends on many factors.
Who can become a surrogate mother
In Ukraine, upon reaching the age of majority, having her own child (children), and the absence of medical contraindications, a woman can voluntarily become a surrogate mother (bear a fetus for future parents). If the woman is married, her husband’s consent is required.
