Surrogacy in Ukraine
Previously Ukraine was a popular surrogacy destination for foreigners. Due to the ongoing military attacks in Ukraine, enormous stress on services and free movement across borders, engaging in Ukraine surrogacy is no longer a safe or ethical option.
A number of foreign governments have issued specific warnings that they will not be able to offer citizenship, passports and travel document support to those of their citizens who choose to engage in Ukraine surrogacy since the military conflict commenced in February 2022.
If you do need to travel to Ukraine for an upcoming birth, minimise your length of stay through careful co-ordination with your agency to ensure your infants birth certificate can be expedited. Neither your safety, nor that of your baby can be guaranteed. Note that some Ukraine agencies are now offering programs in other countries. These may be a safer option and allow you to use embryos already stored in Ukraine.
We do not recommend engaging in Ukraine surrogacy and cannot support intended parents who do so.
Shipping embryos out of Ukraine
For those who do have embryos in Ukraine and would like them relocated, please contact Growing Families and we can help facilitate this.
