Find surrogate mothers

Database of surrogate mothers

Surrogacy in Ukraine has been officially allowed since 2004. The team of reproductive specialists at the Nadiya Odessa clinic has been successfully performing surrogacy programs for over 12 years. Residents of Ukraine as well as Ukrainians, who have moved abroad, and patients from foreign countries refer to us for help. On the whole, they all return home with their long-awaited child and being happy parents.
So that patients do not have to wait long for their dreams to come true, we have created a database of women who are ready to carry a baby for another couple.

Our database contains potential surrogate mothers who meet strict requirements, namely:

  • young women between 21 and 38 years old having 1 to 3 healthy children who were born on time and naturally;
  • physically healthy;
  • mentally healthy;
  • emotionally and psychologically stable, willing to help other couples;
  • examined in accordance with the Order No. 787 of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine;
  • leading a healthy lifestyle;
  • checked by a team of our lawyers with respect to the record of criminal conviction.

Requirements to a surrogate mother:

  • age of 21-38 years;
  • the presence of 1 to 3 children born on time and naturally;
  • the health condition of each child must be confirmed by a certificate from the pediatrician;
  • the woman must be clinically healthy. Women with chronic diseases, congenital pathologies, or surgical interventions are not allowed to participate in the program;
  • laboratory testing (according to the Order No. 787 of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine) and ultrasound monitoring (of pelvic organs, mammary glands, thyroid gland) confirming the absence of pathologies, with subsequent consultation of specialists (therapist, endocrinologist, mammologist, gynaecologist);
  • a woman should have a healthy cervix, which is important both for the course of pregnancy and for the surrogate mother herself. At the first visit to the clinic, a potential surrogate mother undergoes a PAP test, urogenital smears, and colposcopy;
  • psychological health and emotional readiness for the program – after the initial visit and tests, every woman undergoes a consultation with a perinatal psychologist.
  • no record of criminal conviction, which is checked by the team of the clinic lawyers;
  • the absence of addictions (drug, alcohol, nicotine);
  • having normal living conditions – before the program, the coordinator visits the place of residence of the future surrogate mother.

Profile of a surrogate mother. What information about the surrogate mother can intended parents receive?

After a potential surrogate mother has gone through all the selection stages, we create her profile. It contains comprehensive information about a woman, her hobbies, occupation, family members, age, number of children, their height and weight at birth.
Also, in the profile, you will be able to see photos of the surrogate mother. After the patients’ approval, a preliminary online consultation with a potential surrogate mother can be arranged (if necessary).


How do patients choose a surrogate mother for a treatment cycle?

When patients choose the surrogacy program, the personal coordinator, upon their request, sends them profiles of surrogate mothers (usually 2 or 3 profiles). If none of the suggested candidates Is suitable, we continue the selection and offer the following options.
As soon as patients choose a surrogate mother, upon their request, we can organize an online consultation for the initial meeting. All consultations are attended by our coordinator who will be able to assist with translation.
Further, the patients will need to come to Odessa for a few days in order to sign contracts with the surrogate mother and the clinic, as well as pay for the chosen program.
On the same visit, a power of attorney is issued, which will be valid until the end of the surrogacy program at our clinic.
Moreover, the patient and / or the patient's husband is examined, a cryobank of semen is created, a consultation with a reproductive specialist and an embryologist (if necessary) is carried out. Additionally, a face-to-face meeting with a surrogate mother can be arranged in order to meet her in person.
After completing all the documents and signing contracts, the program starts, which can take on average 12-18 months.
