Gay Parenting
What options are available for Gay Intended Parents?

Egg and/or Sperm Donation
in combination with Surrogacy

specially for male gay prospective parents

Egg Donation for Male Gay Parents

Egg Donation for gay intended parents often has some special considerations which differ from heterosexual parents. For example it is quite common for gay parents to look for egg donors who are open to contact, either initially before the IVF treatments or later on after the child is born.

For some intended parents, the option to be able to contact the egg donors in the future if there is a need for the child is something very important for them.

Sperm Donation for Female Gay Parents

Sperm donation is mainly needed by female gay parents but sometimes also by males should there be a major sperm issue. If needed, we will be able to direct any intended parents to several of the major sperm banks in the USA.

Reciprocal IVF
Increasingly popular with lesbian couples since both partners play an important role in conceiving the child. Some women feel it strengthens their bonds both with the child and with each other. With reciprocal IVF, one partner supplies the eggs to be used for IVF while the other partner is the gestational carrier of the pregnancy.
