5 major differences between surrogacy in the United States, the Czech Republic, Georgia and Ukraine
Apr 09, 2019

Among the most attractive countries for surrogate motherhood are the USA, the Czech Republic, Georgia and Ukraine. In all these countries, it is officially permitted to use the services of a surrogate mother, and many clinics offer such services. Which country to choose?

 

Let us consider the possibilities of surrogate motherhood in these countries and compare the reproductive services offered in them according to 5 important parameters: level of medicine, cost, loyalty of the law, possibilities of reproductive medicine, guaranteed results.

Surrogacy in the USA

Surrogate motherhood in the United States is offered at a very high level. However, in different states there are different nuances regarding this service, which are governed by own laws of a state. For example, in some states delivery of surrogate mothers are not allowed if surrogacy agreement was not concluded in the United States.

It is believed that the USA is one of the best countries for surrogate motherhood, but it has a number of disadvantages, including:

  • Lack of fully guaranteed programs. As a rule, 1-2 attempts are offered with transferring the obtained embryos, and if this does not lead to pregnancy, you will have to pay again.
  • A lot of extra payments.
  • There are no companies with a full cycle of services: clinics deal with medical aspects, and agencies deal with surrogate mothers, and there is no clear interaction between them.
  • Maternity hospitals ask additional huge amounts of money for any service besides vaginal delivery.
  • High price of reproductive services.

Surrogacy in the Czech Republic

From the point of view of the level of medical technologies, the Czech Republic may be attractive to those who are looking for a surrogate mother. The Czech society is calm about the use of this reproductive service, and prices are lower than in the USA. The main disadvantage of this country is imperfect legislation. After a baby is born, the surrogate mother is registered in the birth certificate as a mother. She must officially reject it, after this, adoption is executed by a married couple. If the surrogate mother wants to keep the child for herself, the court is always on her side.

Disadvantages of the Czech Republic in terms of surrogate motherhood:

  • Not fully regulated legislation and the fact that a surrogate mother is initially registered as a mother.
  • No guarantee programs.
  • Surrogate mother search agencies do not work in the same bundle with reproductive clinics.
  • Very high prices for services.
  • A couple who wants to become parents cannot independently choose an egg donor.

Surrogacy in Georgia

The country has a convenient legislation on surrogacy for couples who want to use this service. But the mechanism of protection of surrogate mothers is not spelled out and the protection of the rights and interests of children who are born by surrogate mothers is not taken into account.

The advantages of surrogate motherhood in this country are meagre prices for reproductive services with an average level of medicine and a large selection of women who are ready to become surrogate mothers.

But among the local population there is rejection of bearing a child for others, which can cause a conflict between the child’s biological parents and the surrogate mother’s relatives.

The main disadvantages of Georgia are:

  • Strong traditions that are against surrogate motherhood.
  • Features of the phenotype of women who may not be suitable for those who, in addition to surrogate motherhood, also need an egg donor.
  • No guarantee programs.

Surrogacy in Ukraine

Ukraine has created optimal conditions for surrogate motherhood. The laws clearly spell out the rules of surrogacy, take into account the rights of parents, surrogate mothers and children, and the public is sympathetic to the bearing of children by surrogate mothers.

The country has a large selection of clinics that use the latest reproductive technologies for childbirth, which have extensive bases of surrogate mothers. In terms of reproductology, Ukraine is on par with the United States, while the prices for similar services are several times lower.

One of the main advantages is the ability to choose a guarantee package of services. In the Feskov Human Reproduction Group, we offer programs that guarantee results!

Optionally, delivery is possible in the United States or the Czech Republic. Moreover, at moderate prices in Ukraine we carry out the most costly, complex and high-tech part - achieving a pregnancy with the use of assisted reproductive technologies.

So, the advantages of Ukraine for choosing a surrogate mother are:

  • There are full-service companies (start to end company).
  • Ability to choose a guarantee package and get a 100% result.
  • It is allowed to choose the sex of the child.
  • Prices in the programs with a guarantee are comparable to the prices for one IVF attempt in the USA.
  • Possibility of choosing egg donors, both in the photo and in person.
  • Loyal law.
  • Obtaining a birth certificate of a child, where you are registered as the mother and father of your child for citizens of any countries.
  • Ability to give birth in other countries.

Summing up, it is safe to say: for the search for a surrogate mother, Ukraine is the most attractive country in which you will find the best price / quality ratio for surrogate motherhood services!
