SENSIBLE Support for Parents in Ukraine
While still a troublesome destination for surrogacy, many prominent IVF clinics in Ukraine have restarted operations and several surrogacy agencies are reconstituting their programs. For couples who choose this route, SENSIBLE’s local team in Kiev offers support and guidance.
SENSIBLE Surrogacy in Ukraine
Although we do not actively promote surrogacy programs in Ukraine, SENSIBLE continues to support intended parents who are committed to surrogacy in the region. Despite the inherent geo-political risks, many couples choose to continue surrogacy programs in Ukraine. In some cases IPs continue because they have embryos and oocytes in storage at local facilities and feel compelled to continue with their previous clinic. In other cases, couples choose to hire local surrogates in Ukraine as away to support the local population. Regardless of their personal reasons, SENSIBLE offers support, including a local team on the ground in Kiev and western areas of the country.
For married couples, Ukraine continues to hold legal advantages. It’s explicit legal framework regards the intended parents as the legal parents from the moment of conception. IPs are named on the baby’s birth certificate without any require court action. And the legal process for exiting the country is generally well-tested and supported by Western embassies.
Our local crew in Ukraine provides excellent support to ensure the care and well being of surrogates. Weekly reports include detailed inspections of the surrogate’s home, photos and videos of the surrogate and her family, alcohol and drug testing, chaperones during all clinic visits, and added concierge services to ensure she receives the same level of care as in the United States.
