The biggest decision to be made by the intended parents is whether they can financially afford a surrogacy or not. It is a big outlay, but depending on how badly the intended parents want a child, sacrifices can be made.
The next step is to choose the country where it would be best to look for a surrogate.
Many would prefer to pay extra money, approximately three times the amount, to go to the USA or Canada where they believe surrogates may be healthier to carry a child. In addition, a newborn will be able to apply for citizenship.
Many intended parents choose Ukraine mainly for the reason that a surrogate relinquishes her rights to a newborn soon after the delivery. In the USA, a surrogate does not always relinquish the right to a newborn and it can take years to resolve it in a court.
It happens because the Ukrainian surrogate is doing it to support her own family and create a better life conditions for them.
Another reason is quite evident, although no one can deny it. It would be very hard emotionally not to bond with a newborn a surrogate has carried for nine months. The newborn does not have surrogate’s genes and will not have any similarity to her.
The community supports widely a surrogacy in Ukraine. Ukraine is not a rich country with sufficient nutrition for the entire population.
That is why Parents Life is very thorough with surrogates’ selection.
