Ukraine is also referred to as ‘baby factories’ as the commercial surrogacy industry has boomed in the country.


Ukraine is one of the few places in the world where commercial surrogacy is allowed, due to which the surrogacy birth industry has literally exploded.

AFP reported around 2,500 and 3,000 children are born every year through surrogacy in Ukraine for foreign parents and about a third of the customers are Chinese. After India and Thailand outlawed commercial surrogacy for foreigners, Ukraine boomed as a key player in this segment.

Estimates suggest that the global commercial surrogacy market is now worth five billion euros.

According to the deal, the intended parents are generally required to be married heterosexual couples and to have proof of their infertility diagnosis. The average price of surrogate pregnancy in Ukraine is said to be between 25,000 (Rs 22 lakh) and 70,0000 euros (Rs 61 lakh).


Kyiv-based surrogacy clinic BioTexCom claimed to have facilitated close to half of the surrogate pregnancies in the country. It charges around 39,900 euros for the procedure. As reported by Emerging, “two attempts at baby selection” the price rises to 49,900 euros, while for “unlimited attempts” the cost is 64,900 euros.
