FAQ about Surrogacy in Georgia

Surrogacy in Georgia

Those heterosexual marriages whose wife is unable to become pregnant or whose pregnancy process may pose a risk to the mother or baby

We have economic programs from 42.000 € and all-inclusive programs from 55,000 €, including accommodation, civil registry and passport for the newborn. More info...

Payments are made in cash or by transfer to the clinic, surrogate mother and egg donor (in case of ovodonation).

All contracts will be signed in Georgia, including the contracts with the clinic and the surrogate mother. It is not necessary to sign the contract with the Surrogate Mother in person before the embryo transfer, but it is possible to do so through a power of attorney.

The process usually takes 12 to 18 months, depending on how long it takes to achieve pregnancy. Approximately 2 or 3 months may pass between each embryo transfer.

No, if we want to do a program with sex selection we must go to Ukraine, where it is totally legal. More info...

Intended parents

No, there is no legal age limit for starting a surrogacy process in Georgia, but it is recommended not to start after age 50 or 55.

Intended parents must be a heterosexual marriage and  intended father must be fertile, as he must contribute his genetic material. The intended mother must be unable to gestate or such gestation could pose a serious problem for the mother or the fetus.

Once a pregnancy is achieved, the intended parents must continue the process to the end.

At least two trips must be made to Georgia. The first trip to sign the contracts and have the father contribute his genetic material, and the last at birth.

The baby will be registered in the name of the intended parents after the birth in Georgia. The newborn must then be registered in the parents' country of origin, and this depends on the laws of each country and their consulates.

Surrogate mothers

For a woman to be part of a surrogacy program, she must be of legal age and have at least one healthy child.

The surrogate mother must perform a complete physical examination to ensure that she will be able to become pregnant. The tests include those for sexually transmitted diseases or viral infections such as HIV, hepatitis, gonorrhea, syphilis, etc. In addition, a transvaginal ultrasound will be performed to check the condition of the cervix.

It is not necessary for the Intended Parents to sign a contract directly with the Surrogate Mother, as both should be in Georgia a few days before the embryo transfer. In most cases, the Intended Parents on their first trip to Georgia will sign a power of attorney in favor of our coordinator, and our coordinator will sign the surrogacy contract with the pregnant woman before the embryo transfer.

All pregnancy monitoring will be done at the Zhordania clinic.

The surrogate mother will have no rights over the newborn.

Egg donation

No, the surrogate mother will never provide her own eggs.

Yes, as long as the intended mother is fertile and a process of ovarian stimulation is not contraindicated.

Our unlimited program includes an IVF with your own eggs. If a new IVF is required, the new IVF must be performed with egg donation. In general, in each IVF we obtain 4 to 8 eggs.

Egg donors will be required to perform urine tests, blood tests, a chest x-ray and a transvaginal ultrasound. In addition, the egg donor must be of legal age and the mother of at least one healthy child.

In Georgia, intended parents can meet the egg donor if they wish, as long as the egg donor has no objections.
