You and your partner are in a loving relationship as an LGBT couple. You’re ready to grow your family together and want to have a child.
Growing legal and social acceptance has made it easier for LGBT couples to become parents through reproductive medicine. However, there are many legal, financial and emotional issues that add complexity for LGBT couples wishing to grow their family.
Solutions and Treatment
For LGBT parents, we can provide the necessary services you need to achieve a successful pregnancy. These include:
- In vitro fertilization (IVF) / Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)
- Reciprocal IVF. Lesbian couples may choose to use the eggs from one woman and allow her partner to carry the pregnancy
- Freezing and banking (cryopreservation) of eggs or sperm. This can apply to known donors and transgender individuals wishing to preserve fertility prior to transition
- Intrauterine insemination (IUI) (also called artificial insemination (AI)
If you are in need of a sperm or egg donation service or a gestational carrier/ surrogacy service, we partner with many excellent organizations who can provide you with the resources you need.
