Kiev becomes hub for international surrogacy market

Check out this promotional video for BioTexCom

Here’s an interesting promotional video for a Ukranian surrogacy clinic, BioTexCom. The company’s website advertises in Ukranian, Chinese, Italian, French, English, German, Spanish, Arabic and Romanian, which gives an idea of the breadth of its market. The promotional blurb declares, “There is no absolute infertility! We treat even the most hopeless infertility cases.”

BioTexCom is the epitome of commercial,not altruistic, surrogacy. There are three levels of service: economy (29,900 Euros), standard (39,900 Euros), and VIP (49,900 Euros). The “standard” service offers pre-implantation genetic diagnosis of embryos, a 4-hour babysitter, paediatric consultation, a hotel and gourmet lunches. For “the most fastidious customers” who enrol for the VIP package there is limousine transport, a 9am-6pm babysitter and on-call paediatric advice. Its marketing on the web and social media is professional and energetic. 

BioTexCom’s donors are “healthy, attractive and educated women”. Only two out of ten volunteers pass its rigorous tests. The outcome is “long-awaited happiness of parenthood … Save your money and get quality medical service.”
