Nowadays, about 15% (according to some data, 20%) of married couples in the world suffer from a violation of the reproductive function, both or one of the spouses. Infertility has various reasons and manifestations. However, regardless of the genesis, this diagnosis makes unhappy hundreds of thousands of people. Despite the high level of development of medical technology, therapy of fertility problems, unfortunately, does not always give positive results. In such cases, assisted reproductive technologies may come to the aid of childless families. One of these technologies is surrogacy motherhood.
Seek help from an agency or clinic for participation in a surrogacy program is a challenging and very responsible decision. The procedure is complex and expensive. Therefore, it is extremely important not to be mistaken with the choice of specialists who will lead potential biological parents along the entire path to achieving the cherished goal - the birth of a long-awaited baby. And this process should begin with the choice of the country in which the program will be conducted.
Ukraine is one of the most favorable countries for surrogacy, thus. The first successful surrogate pregnancy in the post-Soviet space was in Ukraine. In 1995, a girl born in Kharkov was carried out by her grandmother. Since then, reproductive technologies in Ukraine have continuously improved, developed. Why is this country so favourable?
In Austria, Norway, Germany, France, a number of US states, surrogacy motherhood is not allowed and is a criminal offense. The legislation of some countries does not regulate this assisted reproductive technology at all (Belgium, Greece, Finland, Ireland). In Denmark, Great Britain, Australia, Canada, Israel, Spain, the Netherlands, this reproductive technology is legal, but with a huge amount of restrictions and only on a non-commercial basis.
In Ukraine, gestational surrogacy is totally legal. Legislation regulating the use of assisted reproductive technologies in Ukraine is recognized as one of the best in the world. At the moment, a sufficient number of protocols and bylaws, guided by the work of Ukrainian agencies and surrogacy clinics, have been developed and adopted for execution. The legislation provides for multi-stage protection of biological parents, which completely excludes the possibility of a surrogate mother in any way claiming a child. Biological parents legally and effortlessly obtain their parental rights.
The legality of the use of surrogacy motherhood allows for a strict and rigorous selection of women who want to become gestational carriers. The surrogates` databases contain only those whose health is in excellent shape. In addition, in the Ukrainian reproductive clinics and agencies there are mandatory selection rules. A woman can be a surrogate mother in Ukraine if:
• the age of the candidate is not less than 18 and not more than 35 years;
• she has at least one healthy child;
• there is no history of somatic and mental illness;
• confirmed the absence of bad habits.
All applicants undergo a thorough medical and psychological screening. If all the tests and examinations have been passed, their results are normal, and the psychologist gave his positive conclusion, the woman’s questionnaire is placed in the surrogate mothers database.
It should also be noted that Ukrainians are a genetically healthy nation. Young women in the majority have strong reproductive functions, which allows them give birth to a healthy child without any complications. Genetic health is of particular importance when it comes to donors of oocytes. Of course, all egg donors undergo karyotyping, a high percentage of healthy people guarantees more offers and a maximum reduction in the waiting time for donor gametes.
Ukraine has a fairly high level of sanitary culture, education and intelligence of the population. The society is loyal to people resorting to help and to the surrogate mothers themselves. In this country will be comfortable for both biological parents, and a surrogate mother. Ukraine is located in Europe, which makes it attractive from a territorial point of view.
An important factor is the low cost of the program. With a high level of professionalism of Ukrainian geneticists and reproductologists, participation in the surrogacy motherhood program in Ukraine costs, on average, between thirty and fifty thousand US dollars, while a similar program in the United States will cost about one hundred and fifty thousand. Today, Ukraine occupies one of the leading positions in the world in terms of reproductive technology. Ukrainian specialists successfully apply the latest technologies and developments, and the Ukrainian medical school has always been at a high professional level.
