The cost and benefits of surrogacy programs in Ukraine, the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation

The cost of surrogacy in Ukraine

It is impossible to determine the cost of the program in Ukraine with accuracy, because it depends on many factors and conditions: the number of children carried by a surrogate mother during one pregnancy, the method of delivery (by caesarean section, or by natural means), the level of the clinic in which the surrogate mother will be observed, and many others. But, on average, the price fluctuates around 40000-60000 €. The reward in any case will be very solid.

In addition to payment for the period of carrying a child and the previous embryo transfer operation, every month during pregnancy will also be paid, as well as payment for housing, full meals, money for personal expenses and clothing.

The cost and benefits of surrogacy programs

There are also other components of the cost surrogacy programs:

  • With the onset of 4 months of gestation, the surrogate mother will be allocated funds for new clothes, which, on average, is 500-900 USD;
  • Every month there is a mandatory transfer of funds for quality food, which is about 250-500 USD and varies in accordance with the terms of the contract;
  • The surrogate mother will be paid the remaining amount of remuneration for the services provided after childbirth and the signing of legal documents, on average it is about 15-25 thousand euros.

The price of surrogacy in the Republic of Belarus

A surrogate mother in the territory of the Republic of Belarus has the opportunity to earn about 20-30 thousand dollars, this amount will be supplemented by monthly surcharges during the entire pregnancy and one month after the transfer of the child, payment for clothing, housing rent, food, medical examinations, vitamins, medicines, IVF procedures and many other related expenses. In the case of childbirth by caesarean section, compensation is provided in the region of $ 1000 – $ 2000.
