Nannies care for some of the 19 babies born to Ukrainian surrogate mothers that are now sheltered during the Russian invasion at a basement nursery in Kyiv, March 11, 2022. Due in part to relatively permissive laws and poverty, Ukraine had what was by some estimates the world's biggest surrogacy industry. Now, many newborns are facing an uncertain fate.
