Answers to the most frequently asked questions about surrogacy in Ukraine, Georgia and Mexico If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Surrogacy

Surrogacy is allowed only in some countries in the world, or in certain states. The best known countries are Ukraine and Georgia, although in recent years in Mexico City, there is no prohibition to perform a process, being fully valid contracts between the parents of intention and the surrogate mother.

Of course it is. In both Ukraine and Georgia there is very explicit legislation, while in Mexico City, without any specific legislation, contracts signed with the surrogate before a notary are absolutely legal. Under no circumstances may the surrogate mother ask for a remuneration that exceeds that stipulated in the contract, nor may she make the decision to keep the baby. Only the intended parents have rights to the baby.

At Go4Baby we do not charge a fee for advice or a comprehensive follow-up of your case. Our commitment is that you can fulfill your dream of being parents.

All payments related to the process are made in the country of destination, with the exception of payments related to filiation and adoption, which are legal procedures that, if they must be made, will be done in the parents’ country of origin.

Of course it is. We will advise you FREE OF CHARGE throughout the whole process by intermediating with the foreign agency, either from Ukraine, Georgia or Mexico City. It will only be necessary to sign a confidentiality agreement, through which we will guarantee that your data will be used correctly and safely.

The contracts will be signed with the foreign agency, with the fertility clinic and before a notary with the surrogate. These contracts will enforce all your rights and obligations. In addition, the corresponding confidentiality agreement will be signed with Go4Baby.

The process would last a minimum of 12 months, including pregnancy, but in case of needing more embryo transfers until pregnancy is achieved, the process may be extended by 18 or 24 months.

No, there is no limit on the age of the intended parent(s), although we recommend that they do not exceed 50 or 55 years old.

In countries such as Ukraine or Georgia, only heterosexual marriages can access the process whose woman cannot gestate or carry a pregnancy without serious risks to the mother or fetus. In the case of Mexico City, both heterosexual marriages and single men and same-sex couples can access without any limitation.

In case pregnancy has not been achieved, yes, it would be possible to leave the process. In case of pregnancy we must go all the way.

Usually 2 trips are enough. The first trip would be to sign the corresponding contracts in the country of destination and for the intended parent to contribute his or her genetic material. The last trip would be made at birth.

The baby will be registered in Ukraine, Georgia or Mexico in the name of the intended parents. Subsequently, and depending on the legislation in force in the country of the Intended Parents, the newborn will directly obtain his or her citizenship and passport, or the citizenship and passport of the country in which the surrogacy process has been carried out. In the latter case, additional legal steps will have to be taken in the parents’ country of origin.

Intended parents

Surrogate mothers

Your surrogate must be over 18 years old, have at least one healthy child, and not be over the recommended age for pregnancy, as well as be in good health. On the other hand, the surrogate mother must undergo a series of medical tests that guarantee that she will be able to carry a pregnancy with the best guarantees.

Serological tests (hepatitis, HIV, etc.), transvaginal ultrasound to ensure that they can carry a pregnancy safely, and a psychological test will be performed.

The Intended Parent(s) must sign a contract with the Surrogate Mother before a notary, but it is also possible to sign a power of attorney in favor of our representative in the destination country to sign such an agreement on your behalf.

Follow-up is coordinated through the agency or clinic in the destination country. Through Go4Baby you will receive all the information with total transparency.

Absolutely none After birth, it will be the intended parent(s) who will have full rights over the newborn.

No, the surrogate mother and the donor must be different people, basically to guarantee that the surrogate will not have any genetic relationship with the baby.

Yes, always after passing a series of tests that guarantee that the quality of your eggs is enough and that an ovarian stimulation procedure would not be counterproductive.

In case the intended mother can provide her own eggs, it will be possible to perform an IVF with those eggs and up to 3 transfers.

Egg donors must undergo a gynecological examination, a genetic study and a blood test, including a serological study.

In Ukraine and Mexico City, you will have access to generic information about your donor, including his photographs. In the case of Georgia, you will also have the opportunity to meet the donor personally.
