Egg Donation Service
Single Parenting Service
Family Planning Service
This is a mode of child birth where the surrogate mother gives her consent to become pregnant and deliver the child in pursuance to a contract with an intending couple unable to have a baby of their own.
The surrogate mother is not genetically connected to the child she carries in case of Gestational Surrogacy. The child here is obviously biologically related to intended parents, but the biological mother is incapable of nurturing the embryo and giving birth to the baby. In surrogacy, both the intended parents donate their eggs and sperms. In Ukraine, gestational surrogacy is completely lawful. However, the choice is legally approved just for legitimately wedded couples. It doesn’t need any explicit consent from any authoritative body.
PGD (Pre implantation Genetic Diagnosis) can be carried out on the embryos cultured in-Vitro for sex selection as well. This has given rise to serious ethical concerns in many countries as it is not always done on valid medical grounds. Socio-economic background of a country has a great role to play. Sex selection of the embryo based on social obligations or family liabilities is strongly condemned by authorities of every country and neither is it practiced legally. Sex selection should be legally sanctioned on grounds of both medical and non medical reasons depending upon the country in question. The main objective of sex selection is to maintain an optimal male female population ratio as desired by the country.
Egg donation is the process where a female (an egg donor) willingly donates her unfertilized eggs for vitro fertilization in the recipient female, who is unable to produce an egg capable of fertilization. The most prominent conditions that minimize the chances of conceiving are ovarian failure, genetic disorders and declining egg reserve due to age. As a result, egg donation becomes an immediate requirement to conceive. Primarily, there are two types of egg donors known and recruited donors. The former includes mainly sisters, but can also be cousins, nieces, friends and at times acquaintances. The former are young women aged between 20 to 35 years possessing exceptional reproductive potential.
