We Take care Of You So You
Can Take Care Of Each Other

growing a family as an LGBTQ+ individual or couple requires a little (okay, a lot) extra help! with fertility doctors, sperm donors, egg donors, surrogates and lawyers, it takes a village to start and raise a family – we’re here to help direct you to the best team members and support to help you along the way.

FIND A CLINIC

making sure you connect with your fertility team is one of the most important steps in this process.  you’re going to be spending a lot of time at their office and there could be some bumps in the road.  you want to make sure they’re compassionate and will really take the time to sit with you and explain everything throughout your journey.the clinics listed have been recommended from someone within the LGBTQ+ community to ensure that you feel safe in an inclusive environment.

Ask the Expert

we find that education is empowering – the more you know, the better decision you can make for you and your family. we interview fertility doctors (formally known as reproductive endocrinologist, if you want to be fancy like that) to walk you through some of the basics – what to expect at your first infertility appointment, the standard testing required, your different options (IUI, IVF, reciprocal IVF, donor egg, donor embryo) and more. 

we also chat with surrogacy agencies to learn how to navigate that process – especially as an LGBTQ+ individual or couple.
