Hello! My husband and I live in Canada but we cannot find a suitable Gestational Carrier (we’ve been searching for one for a long time), so we’ve been considering the US or even Ukraine. We’ve a straight couple (we got married 4 years ago). We’ve done some research and we think that we fit the requirements of the Ukrainian law… I’ve Rokitansky syndrome, so I meet the requirement that says we need a medical cause to be eligible… What else do we need? What is the cost? Though we’re interested in the US and Ukraine above all, I’d like to get an overview of all the countries available nowadays for surrogacy abroad, just in case.10/02/2017 at 19:07
Dear sue murphy,
Let me give you an international overview, and then I’ll tell you about the specific cases of Ukraine and the USA, as you asked. In general, surrogacy abroad can cost about $90,000 to $115,000. But it’s very important for you to keep in mind that the actual cost depends on the country chosen, your particular situation, the fertility treatments that may be required, your surrogate fees, etc.
As for Ukraine and the USA, well, you’re right: You meet the criteria for doing it in both countries. The truth is, heterosexual couples have a wider number of advantages than other family types. While it can cost $33,600-$48,100 in Ukraine, the general price in the usa can be as high as $95,000-$290,000.
If you want a general overview about all the countries that allow surrogacy to foreign citizens, you might be interested in visiting the following post: International surrogacy guide.
I hope this helps,

I will tell my story!
Unfortunately, surrogacy is an illegal procedure in most part of the world. I don’t understand why the government interferes in this question. As for me, this is a private life. Why the government doesn`t have an interest to infertility couples. According to the statistic from the net, the number of infertile couples is steadily growing. My husband and I were in this situation. We saw a great number of specialist. In addition, I did 3 IVF which were negative. The surrogacy was the only way for us in order to have a baby. We started to look through clinic somewhere abroad as the surrogacy has a ban in our country. Honestly, we were shocked by the prices. Thanks to Ukraine now I am holding my little son. I believe you will find a good clinic with a great price.05/21/2018 at 13:35
You are very lucky to have surrogacy in Ukraine. Unfortunately my husband and I missed such chance because we thought too long whether we should do it. And now we really regret our decision. Currently we are looking for surrogacy in Russia. But we haven’t made a decision according to the clinic yet (we understand that prices for surrogacy in Ukraine and Russia are different but we are ready to pay).
Maybe someone faced with surrogacy issue in Russian. Pls, share your impression. Which clinic was it? Was it comfortable? Does your clinic give some guarantees? I would be grateful for any information.
Thank everyone and take care.08/15/2018 at 09:44
Recently my husband and I wanted to use surrogacy on the territory of Ukraine. We even contacted one of the Ukrainian leading clinics but the manager said that biotex doesn’t work with new clients who want to use surrogacy. Then we decided to make a research among Georgian clinics. We again made a request and the manager said that 3 surrogacy attempts cost around 44,000 euros. It is too much for our family – Biotex provided unlimited attempts for around 30,000 euros. Currently, we don’t have enough money for surrogacy in Georgia. Honestly, we are in despair. We don’t know which clinic can guarantee a successful outcome even if we will pay more money.
If anyone faced with surrogacy in Georgia, please could you share any information. Which clinic did you use? Did you get a desirable outcome at once?
Thanks everyone!08/14/2018 at 10:20
Sorry to hear about your syndrome. The costs of surrogacy really depend from country to country. At some places, it is really expensive. However, in some places, surrogacy is affordable. People who live in the States and can’t afford expensive surrogacy go to other countries in order to have a child through this process. I can’t tell you exactly how much it costs there but this would give you an idea. I hope this was helpful.08/28/2018 at 16:51
