We want to become parents with the help of a surrogate mother. Is it necessary to be officially married?
According to the law couples can use surrogacy services. As to be registered as child’s parents a man and a woman should be married. This legal conflict is a consequence of the fact that surrogacy in our country is regulated by several legislative acts.
Who will register the baby when he or she is born?
We will take care of most of the formalities related to the registration of the baby at the registry office. When the baby is born, we will take care of the civil state registration of the baby. This is a standard procedure regardless of the way the baby was born. The consent of the surrogate’s spouse must be notarized before the program begins.
Can a surrogate mother keep her baby?
No. If the surmother is chosen correctly, she already has children of her own, she is psychologically stable, she is aware of the lack of genetic kinship with the child she is carrying and she is ready to hand him over to his real mother and father. An additional guarantee for the parents is a contract in which this consent is recorded. In addition, when drafting the contract, our lawyers consider all the risks, even the most unlikely ones, and ways of solving the problem in your favor.
Can a surrogate carry out intrauterine insemination instead of IVF to achieve pregnancy?
Intrauterine artificial insemination implies using the germ cells of the woman who will carry the baby. That is, in this case, the surrogate will also be the genetic mother of the baby. This is a traditional surrogacy, and in our country the law allows only the gestational surrogacy, when the surmother is not genetically linked with the embodied child. Gestational surrogacy is possible only using IVF.
