Surrogacy in Ukraine

Surrogacy in Ukraine is legal for married heterosexual couples ONLY. According to Ukrainian law, IP’s will need to supply a letter from their fertility doctor that explains the medical reason why they cannot conceive naturally and why they wish to pursue a surrogacy journey in Ukraine. IP’s may choose between a basic plan (without egg donation) and a Guarantee plan (with egg donation).

The Surrogates

All of the Tammuz Family surrogates in Ukraine reside in and around the beautiful city of Kiev. They all undergo a lengthy and rigorous screening process before being accepted in to the program and they must have had at least one healthy baby derived from a successful pregnancy. During the pregnancy, the surrogates live with their families and maintain their lifestyles as per usual. They have regular visits with Dr. Zukin at the Nadiya Clinic, monitoring their pregnancies according to the pregnancy plan. They undergo all the customary pregnancy tests in addition to periodic blood tests to ensure that their overall health is satisfactory and on track for a successful birth. The surrogates are generously compensated for the service they provide. As this process enables them to secure a future for their children and their families, their motivations are primarily economic.

Donors

Tammuz Family gives IP’s access to a database of egg donors from South Africa and Ukraine. All of the Tammuz Family egg donors undergo psychological and medical screening and IP’s are provided with the donor’s genetic profile, medical history, education, employment history, interests/hobbies and family medical history.

What happens after the birth?

After the birth of your baby you are required to apply for a ‘citizenship by descent’ and then subsequently a passport from the country you hold citizenship in. This process generally takes 4-6 weeks post birth so IP’s need to plan in advance and know they will be required to stay in Ukraine until the passport has been issued. Our team at Tammuz will guide you every step of the way!
