Is commercial surrogacy legal in Ukraine?

Yes. Since the early 2000s the surrogacy process along with sperm/egg donation has been absolutely legitimate in Ukraine. The Law of Ukraine clearly states that a surrogate mother or a donor has no parental rights whatsoever over the child and prospective parents are the only persons who have the natural parental rights.

Ukrainian Surrogacy Law is exceedingly lenient towards the intended parents and thoroughly supports their rights for reproductive procedures. Pursuant to Surrogacy Law of Ukraine you are free to choose between gestational surrogacy, oocytes/sperm donation and embryo adoptions procedures. It is to note that prior to commencement of the surrogacy program a written informed consent of all parties involved in the aforesaid process is a must.

The birth certificate of a child will contain the names of intended parents. One of the main points is that a surrogate mother has no legal rights to keep a newborn child and her name shall not be indicated in the birth certificate.      

Please be further advised that only legally married heterosexual couples are entitled to use the services of a surrogate mother in Ukraine. Same-sex marriage is not considered a lawful union in Ukraine, therefore gay/lesbian couples are not allowed to use the services of a surrogate mother. However, single women/men can use the full range of assisted reproductive technologies in Ukraine.  

What types of surrogacy are permitted by law in Ukraine?

The following types of surrogacy arrangements are legal in Ukraine.

Gestational Surrogacy (GS):

In case the intended mother is not be able to carry a child to term, her egg and the intended father's sperm are used to create an embryo through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) that is implanted into and carried by a surrogate mother. This method implies that the child born is genetically related to its parents and a surrogate mother has no genetic relation.

Traditional Surrogacy (TS):

The procedure involves artificial insemination of a surrogate mother with the intended father's sperm via Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or Home Insemination. These procedures imply that the child born is genetically related to its father and a surrogate mother.

Traditional Surrogacy & Donor Sperm (TS/DS):

This involves artificially inseminating a surrogate mother with donor sperm via IUI, IVF or home insemination. The child born using this method is genetically related to a sperm donor and a surrogate mother.

Gestational Surrogacy & Oocyte Donation (GS/ED):

If there is no intended mother or the intended mother is not capable of producing eggs, a surrogate mother carries the embryo developed from a donor egg that has been fertilized by sperm from the intended father. While using this method, the child born is genetically related to the intended father and a surrogate mother has no genetic relation.

Gestational Surrogacy & Donor Sperm (GS/DS):

If there is no intended father or the intended father is unable to produce sperm, the surrogate mother carries an embryo developed from the intended mother's egg (who is unable to carry a pregnancy herself) and donor sperm. Such technique implies that the child born is genetically related to the intended mother and the surrogate mother has no genetic relation.
