A single woman was recognized as mother of her “surrogate” baby.
On August 5, 2009 the Kalininsky Regional Court of St. Petersburg obliged the Birth Registrar Office to register a child born through a gestational surrogacy programme for an unmarried woman with putting her name on the child’s birth certificate as mother. The Court decided that the Birth Registrar Office’s denial to register the plaintiff’s baby was not legitimate. The plaintiff’s interests in Court were represented by the Rosjurconsulting company lawyers. This case won in the St. Petersburg Court proved once more the fact that single women are entitled to apply for surrogacy programmes in Russia.
