Only with Lotus: No waiting time for a surrogate!
Surrogacy is practiced in Georgia since 1997. It is legal for married heterosexual couples (married more than 1 year) or heterosexual couples that live together for over a one year as a married
According to the law, a donor or surrogate mother has no parental rights over the child born.
According to the Georgian law, the intended parents are the legal parent of the baby, even in case of an embryo created with a help of an egg or sperm donation.
The intended parents will be registered as parents in the birth certificate
Consent of the surrogate mother is not required for registration of the intended couple as parents.
The following will be required for registration of the couple as parents: Surrogacy Agreement made by the couple, certificate of embryo transfer into the uterus of the surrogate mother issued
by the IVF clinic and certificate of the fact of childbirth issued by maternity hospital.
You can learn more about the surrogacy laws in Georgia from: “On Health Protection” law:
Article 143. Extracorporeal fertilization (IVF) is allowed:
a) For the purpose of treatment of infertility, as well as in case of risk of transmission of genetic disease on a wife’s or a husband’s part, by using sex cells or an embryo of the couple or a donor, if the couple’s written consent has been obtained.
b) If a woman has no uterus, for the purpose of transfer and growth of the embryo obtained as a result of fertilization to the uterus of another woman (“surrogate mother”). The couple’s written
consent is obligatory.
The couple is considered to be parents in case of the childbirth with the responsibility and authority ensuing from it. A donor or a “surrogate mother” has no right to be recognized as a parent of the born child.
For the purpose of artificial fertilization it is possible to use female and male sex cells or an embryo conserved by the method of freezing. The time of conservation is determined according to the couple’s will by established procedure.
