Surrogacy in Brazil

Only non-commercial surrogacy is allowed, which means that it is impossible to legally pay a surrogate mother. In this sense, Brazilians choose for themselves the approval of surrogacy programs in countries such as Ukraine or Russia, which provide guarantees for the successful completion of the process.

As for the practice of non-commercial surrogacy, for Brazil it often means that blood relatives or good acquaintances are used as a surrogate mother who, out of altruistic motives, are ready to help their loved ones become parents. There are cases when mothers became surrogate mothers for one of their children, thus giving birth to their grandchildren or granddaughters. Obviously, with this approach, this branch of reproductive medicine cannot get a decent development, and as we mentioned earlier, it forces the vast majority of Brazilians in need of surrogacy to seek a solution to the problem outside their country.
